Up on the Rooftop..

The hay is all in so back to work on the house. The shingles are nearly all on, and they really look good!

Mike is putting a sun tunnel skylight in the hallway, this is how it looks on the roof.

This is how it looks inside right now.

The new french doors will bring lots of light into the living area.

Outside there will be a new deck to enjoy the view and soak up sun.

There will be a corner sink in the kitchen under the windows.

Next week Mike will start on the plumbing, the electrical will get going and installation of the heat pump in on the way. I have the kitchen layout pretty much done..just a bit of tweeking and then mom and I will need to select her cabinets. How exciting!! It is going to be so cool!!
We moved the steers to town to be lawnmowers for the pasture. The train was a little unsettling to them at first..but they are getting used to it now and seem content.

Finally....Dixie is Here!!

Last Thursday morning Mike came rushing into the bedroom at about 5am waking me with a start. He told me there were now four horses in the barn! (We have been getting up and checking every morning for about a month) I quickly dressed and ran to the barn to meet my long awaited new arrival.

I decided to name her Dixie. It will be fun to see what color she ends up. Her dad is grey... So far most of my horsey friends think that is what color she will turn. Time will tell.

Dixie is 4 days old in these last 3 pictures. You will be seeing more of her as time goes on.

On another note...Mike has been haying, so not much done on the house in town. We did get the porch railings up at our house though.
