the house is painted and the hay is in the barn!

It's been a busy few weeks...
We had lots of help and lots of fun getting some good work done.

Brian got the last two posts in the barn in place just as the last hay was coming in.

 

The hay pick up stretched over about a week and we picked up about 22 ton in total and got it all stacked in the barn with some great help from lots of friends and neighbors!! Thanks everyone!
note the vantage point of the above shot riding home on the stack of hay is indeed the most fun part of picking up hay in the neighboring fields.





'All In - and ready for winter'
and happily I made it through another year of picking up hay still able to walk : )

sniff... a great life and one bad day...

Absolutely spectacular - the house that is. The hay too! Congrats to Brian on the barn, it's a tribute to his ingenuity - I must say I never thought it would look so good.

Ditto! Chi, and hats off to you, Brian and your friends for making all this happen in such an incredibly short amount of time - and everything is - as always - simply BEAUTIFUL!

Wow! I was out picking up some Rose just few weeks ago when the paint was being delivered...It looks like a brand new house. And a bluesky porch. Perfect! Congratulations, you guys are a real inspiration. (And everybody has loved the wine :D )

dear Brian and Clare, i've been
wondering......do you think i look nice enough to stand on the
porch of your newly painted beautiful butternut home with the white frosting and have my picture taken?
respectfully, Petunia
