Well, it snowed. About 6 inches from about 4:00a.m. to 1:00 p.m. It was beautiful until we humans started pushing it around. Now it looks awful, but I took the pictures before we went out to work. In the tree picture you can see Mellow and Linus in their pasture wanting to know what I am doing outside. They always know when I come outside, and then Mellow starts her "signature bleating". Jake says she sounds like one of those old WWI machine guns. She is funny. The other picture is the same two when they ran away from me because my camera scared them. I went out with the camera and some cookies knowing that I could lure them over to me. They are too fast for me. They came running, and the pictures were not that good. But after the two sheep got scared away, I got a decent shot of them.
Today Jake did his first work on the demolition. He took the boards off of the ceiling. It was quite a disappointment. We were hoping there would be round rafters
up there, but they are just plain rafters. Now we have to decide how we will treat that in our "new" log home. I am thinking just leave them the way they are, but that is after just half a day of seeing how it looks. This evening he removed another part of a wall. What a difference!!!! Tomorrow I will remove the lath and plaster from the
north wall, and all the walls will be bared in that room. Everything we do makes it
look better. I do not think there was anything that could have been done to this house to make it look worse than it did before we started making changes. I am not saying that we are the "master remodelers", but it was just soooooooo poor. I cannot believe that we bought it. Both Jake and I have rose colored eyeballs. We can both see how something could change for the better. Thank heaven. Now, all we have to do is "Get it Done."
