Has A Week Really Gone By?

Damn! Mostly been out at the property moving dirt around with my digger. Kind of fun and relaxing in it’s own way. The weather’s been pretty good lately.
Had Bob (The Dirt Guy) and his dozer out for the 5 hours he owed me. Damn, can that man move dirt! He did a lot that would have taken me forever with the digger. Dome hole, the clearing and the road all look pretty good now. (I’ll take pictures tomorrow.)
Kathy brought lunch out and we did some measuring for fence and deck and other things. It’s nice having her out there.
And that’s about it. Oh, had my double-nickel birthday the other day. Kathy bought me TOOLS. Cool! Got a pneumatic brad nailer, finish nailer & Staple Gun (and the tank and compressor) AND she got me a Miter Saw. (Thank Goodness for the Home Depot Card!!)

Pretty Good Day If I Do Say So Myself!

Went out to the property and pushed some more dirt around and started pulling out the Scotsbroom or whatever it is. Moving downed trees in the clearing. Generally just having a good time.
Took SWMBO to see the Pirates 3 movie. Was okay. Thought it was about an hour too long though. Still being out with my favorite girl has it’s good points too!

Normal Friday Date…

With My Lovely Young Bride! Today we went out for breakfast at the Family Pancake House in Port Orchard then bowled 3 games at Hi-Joy Bowl. She whipped my ass! Good exercise though. Afterwards we did our usual shopping stop at Albertson’s.
Nice Day!

How It’s Going!

Well, spent the last couple of days at the property pushing dirt around
with my Digger. Nice and hot and sunny! My knees are so sunburned!
Moving dirt has it’s own mellow; once you get into a rhythm your mind
can pretty much go where you want it to.
Been on the phone or internet most of the morning tracking down someone
to install the floor joists & subflooring, windows & doors and maybe
frame in the deck. Looking for a dumbwaiter & spiral stair also. I get
these last numbers in and we can go for financing. We’re running out of
time! For one, Mason County is giving us a limited amount of time to get
this thing built. For another if we don’t start by mid-august then we’ll
have to wait until it stops raining again (next June). Then we’ll have
to go through the Mason County BS again.
Other than that things are going well. New site, blog and all are
working. Now I just have to figure out what I really want to do with them!
