Both the openings are framed out now & ready for the doors. The old metal sliding doors will be removed & used for something. Maybe part of a new chicken coop or an alpaca enclosure. We should get the doors in a couple weeks. So excited!
Saturday morning we awoke to a different view. We slept in the new bedroom! It was great to look around & imagine living on that side of the barn. We have a northern and western view from the new bedroom so the sun didn't wake us up as early as we are used to like the eastern view of the cabin room bed. Haven't decided if will miss that or not.
Steve did more drawings on Friday night of the kitchen cabinets. We (especially me) would like to get the "L" shaped counter done this winter so we can have a sink to wash dishes (instead of going to the utility sink in the basement) & a real stove (instead of the camp stove) to cook on. I will be so thrilled to have both of them. Not that I don't like what we have now and not that I won't miss "the old days" of roughing it a bit. It will be a luxury, though.
This coming weekend we are going to the county fair with Amy & Rob. Neighbors Jim & Nancy have entered a huge pumpkin and some crocheted place mats. We are hoping to see a draft horse competition on Saturday if it doesn't rain. There is also a dog obedience contest on Sunday that is fun to see. And of course eating a bunch of junk food is fun too :-)
On a different subject...my mom is in the hospital with congestive heart failure. Hoping she gets out soon and can live comfortably where she resides at the assisted living facility. She had a strep infection in her blood which she was hospitalized for last month & now this. Her memory has been affected maybe by the lack of oxygen to the brain (?). Get better soon Mom!
Hope you are all having the great fall weather that we are & are enjoying every minute of it while it lasts :-)
