It was another gorgeous Fall day with lots of sunshine. Early in the morning I arrived at the acreage. First things first: letting the cats out. It was still chilly from the night but they didn’t mind that. Dizzy ran around, happy and playful. Taz, as usual, took a dive in the sand and rolled and rolled and rolled. After she was done, she did her ‘round’ and checked out everything in the yard. Of course Scruffy was doing the same, barking loud to let all animals know she was there. The horses were grazing but they kept an eye on the yard.
I cleaned up in the cabin and then I got to work. I cut to size and put up one sheet of osb to the wall and could then finish the floor of the bathroom. Then I measured a couple of wall pieces where the bedroom / bathroom wall would come. Time just flew by and before I knew it was around noon and Paul arrived. H e brought me a cappuccino and potato wedges. Mmmmm! That was a nice surprise!
Together we put up some osb sheets and then we start with the wall that divides bedroom and bathroom. We put a two by four on the floor that goes parallel with the two by four on the ceiling. Then we cut two by sixes that would fit right between those two and while I held the two by sixes straight, Paul screwed them in. We worked hard for a few hours and then called it a day. I was very tired, and my feet hurt from standing all day. But we had so much work done! Wonderful!
Paul went home and I cleaned up the cabin. I’m collecting a lot of sawdust in a bucket, that I can reuse for composting. I fed the cats and then I gave the horses some treats and a handful of minerals. It was a very good day and again a lot accomplished. On my way home I saw a young fox on the road. I slowed down and it stopped to look at the truck. It was scared but also very curious! So it would walk a bit, then stop to look at the truck, then walk again. I could snap a quick picture with my phone so it isn’t the best quality. Normally by the time I have my camera, wildlife runs off but the phone was right beside me so I gave it a try. Very slowly I passed and then the fox ran into the woods at the side of the road. Now that was a nice end of the day!
