The weekend

Well we had a very interesting weekend here, my older girl broke her third pair of glasses in the past year. Then our momma cat decided it was time to bring the babies out for everyone to see. It started off with one and the mom walking to our tent with it, she gets waylaid by our blue tick hound, as I just happened to be coming out of the tent. So I rescued the kitten from mom and me and Silver had to stay up in the dark for another hour while she brought the rest out for us. I have discovered they are old enough to start eating so we have been giving them some peanut butter to eat until silver's next check comes in and we can buy some kitten food for them.

We have decided when we order the portable building we will drop it right where our outdoor kitchen/living room is, considering the space is already fairly level. We found out from Mark Chenail that he brought a “Pullman style” kitchenette for us when he made his permanent move. Which is great, a whole kitchen on one wall; 3-burner stove, oven, refrigerator, sink, and upper cabinets. All in one, it's the perfect size for the “bunk house”, and after-wards it will become my canning kitchen.

We are counting down the days till Silver gets paid this time around, it will either be on Tuesday or Wednesday, then again on Friday. The first bit of pay will go to the portable building, also the minor groceries we need to buy; the second is our land payment, electric payment, phone payment. All leftover monies go to car gas, laundry and “fixing up” the bunk house. Including getting the wire for our well, with our fingers crossed that it doesn't need anything else.


  1. I would love to see some pics of the kitchen. Are these separate pieces that have been put together? I really miss having a stove and would like to figure out something for that.

  2. I should be able to post pics that Mark had originally sent me, I hadn't taken the camera when we looked at it the other day.
