Weekend work

The frogs are bellowing to beat the band. Here is a photo of their eggs in the seasonal creek that is now actually a seasonal pond. I couldn't get a picture of the frogs because they are just too quick.


I continued to take down the small summer kitchen board by board on Saturday. This is when I started. Note that there is a back wall.



This shows the terrible condition of the roof rafters. I don't stand inside much because as I take down boards, it becomes looser and more precarious.



This was the end of the afternoon. Not as much back wall as the beginning of the day.










When we drove up on Saturday morning, there were two adult turkeys at our lot line. They ran up the hill behind the house. We have never actually seen turkeys there before - we've seen evidence of them, but never the real thing (on our property).


No sign of any of the cats. Some of the cat food was gone, but we saw a large woodchuck duck in and out of the barn; so we are suspicious that is the one eating the cat food.

Well, I'm sure you're bummed about the cats but like I said before, you did all you could. They're probably fine, just wandered off to somewhere else.

I give you a lot of credit for working on the building, it doesn't look like much fun. I have a similar building to tear down soon and I'm not looking forward to it. At least there is nice scenery around for working in!

Hi Jena -

Believe it or not - taking down that building is fun. Its challenging to remove each nail and pry the boards away with minimal damage so that they can be reused. Plus, its very visually satisfying as I can see the difference between the morning and the afternoon. And, yes the scenery certainly does help!

Hi Angie...looks great! What a feeling of satisfaction! Sorry about the cats. They are probably mooching off a neighbor.
