…is not my usual vocation.
Both Dan and Jamie were at work on Thursday and when the temperature got above 20 degrees Rayna and I went for a walk so I could see the lay of the land.
Looking back at our kids new home on 20 acres.
If you look down through the trees you can just see the main road below with the stand of mailboxes.
Here’s a zooming in shot of the mailboxes on the opposite side of the road. From the house to the mailboxes is about 1 mile taking the drive. If you want to slide down the hill I suppose you could shave off some distance.
Looking back at the second switchback.
Continuing on to the first switchback. Getting closer to the mailboxes.
We stopped at the first switchback instead of going all the way to the street and headed back uphill for home.
Uphill all the way back home.
Coming back up to the second switchback.
Looking back before we head into the trees.
Almost there. We can see the house up through the trees.
Welcome home. The thing about walking a dog on gravelly roads that were covered in snow and ice but are now muddy in the melt is their paws and fur get real dirty. I had to do a little coaxing to get Rayna to lay down so I could wash off her paws and fur before coming into the house. A little paw bath contraption in a mud room would be a nice addition to a home in these parts.
On Thursday I had no problems getting my steps in. Today is a busy day at this new to our kids house. Later today I’m invited to go for the ultrasound to see how Addy is growing in the womb. That will be a first for me. The painting of the nursery is almost done. Today Dear is painting a stripe. Yesterday he painted the upper color and different color on the lower part of the wall. Today is the stripe in between those two colors which is a third color. Yes, once it’s all done I’ll show you. The dresser drawer fronts got painted and the little toy truck that Dan’s Dzeda built for him when he was one is getting a fresh coat of paint (3 colors).
I’m going to be scarce on the internet for the rest of our time here. Tomorrow is an open house here and there will be a nice flood of friends and family in and out so my computer will be packed away. Thanks for visiting. I’ll get caught up when I’m back in my corner of the world.
