Renovation update

Lest we all forget, we spend our nights and weekends around here building an addition onto the back of our house. Since I got pregnant and broke my ankle, I have been very remiss at updating the renovation blog. Until this morning.

I don't have a good picture of the ceiling all finished so you'll have to take my word for it. Frugaldad started walls after he finished the ceiling. The end is in sight. Just don't ask us when the end will be. There will be no committal to dates around here.

Homemade Sprinkler Manifold Continues

My inexpensive sprinkler manifold is doing great. The output through those nice big pvc pipes is great, and the hose spigot can really put out the water. I found some more pics and thought I may as well put those up so you can see how it was installed.

Keeping it all together

On Saturday afternoon my four children happily drudgingly helped me weed the strawberry bed. I was just handing out popsicles to them all when Frugaldad came out of the addition, blood on his hands and dripping down his face, cursing like a sailor and saying something fell on his head. I grabbed some towels, told him to put direct pressure on his head, made a quick call to my sister-in-law down the road, put the kids in the van (half of them hadn't even gotten their popsicles unwrapped), dropped them off at their cousins' house, and took Frugaldad to the urgent care clinic.  read more »

Grass-cicles

Grass-cicles

Have you ever seen such a thing? We had some water spraying out of the end of the new water line to the pasture overnight to prevent it from freezing.

Updates galore

I just posted lots of updates and pictures over at the renovation blog. Check it out!
