Where’s Winter?

It’s been SOOO long since my last post! Sorry folks! I’ve been so busy growing and learning that I completely forgot about my obligation as a young writer…Oops!

Well lets see what’s been happening since I last wrote…

Ah, yes. I CAN WALK!!! I LOVE walking! I had no idea how much fun it would be! And I am eating whatever my parents give me now plus my milk. Did I mention I love to eat? Yes, I love food! And water. I love my water. And of course, my doggies, Daisy and Oscar and my horses, Lumpy and Neo…But I don’t like owls…Nope. They scare the ba geeezeus out of me! ¬†We have one that likes to come late at night and perch on our roof top. Daddy always gets up and shoes it away. I have no idea why they scare me, but they do. Creepy little fellas.

Daddy’s been busy working outside and getting the cabin and the horses ready for winter. A few weeks ago he built a solar water tank for the boys.

He also is getting ready to build the barn. The ground is level and several holes are dug and ready for concrete and beams. We’re going to build the ends first and use them as a lean to until the rest of the barn can be built. At least the boys will have shelter and we’ll have some hay storage for the winter.

On the cabin, daddy added some chinking under the eves of both gable ends. Boy does that help with the breeziness in the house! He also finished insulating the upstairs and putting up sheet rock. I think he just needs a couple more spots to do and then it will be ready for tape and texture.

Downstairs I got to help him put up some barnwood around the counter this weekend. It was so fun! He also built a hidden door to a big cabinet where mama stores her canning pots. I like it a lot, but now I can’t bang around on the pots unless mama can figure out my grunts and groans as to what I’m wanting.

Other than that, I’ve been to the park alot and learning a lot by reading lots of books. I lOVE to read! And today mama bought me a sticker book! I’m so excited to play with it. She let me play with her sticky note pad this morning, but I can tell she was not really wanting all the pages torn off…

Well, I’m ready for a nap, so I’ll catch you all soon!

Peace and LoVe
