Today we travelled to Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park to take our Christmas photo that had snow in the background. There was about 10” of new snow and we took a bunch of pictures to consider for the card. This year instead of ordering the cards online having them printed and then sending, we … Continue reading Hurricane Ridge Today
Made a double batch of pizzelles tonight and packaged them up and mailing them to Dad tomorrow. He should have them by the end of the week. I want to send him some more but wanted to get these in the mail so he will have them for Thanksgiving.
The new gutters were installed today. Rose said it was two guys and it only took a couple of hours. They did a nice job. We ordered them through Lowe’s this past summer but had them wait to install until painting was complete and the wood was repaired.
We worked outside today until late afternoon when it started to rain. We pruned back those crazy blackberries and decided to make a fire to get rid of the prunings. The pictures show Rose splitting some wood to get the fire going. Of course Luna is always near by to keep an eye on us. … Continue reading Pruned the Blackberries
This morning I received a frantic call from Alicia. She was crying and hard to understand. My first thought was that she had been in an accident. Alicia’s next words were Luna jumped out of the truck. My heart sank thinking she was injured or worse. Alicia finally was able to tell me she had jumped … Continue reading Luna Jumped Out of the Truck!

Rose rolled the west side today. Some cut in and the grooves of the siding need touch up with my brush. The … Continue reading Started Painting Shop
The rotted wood was finally repaired this week and as soon as that was done we painted it and finally completed the job. That was a lot of work for both of us. I will be posting a more in-depth article on the painting project soon.
The workers from Sentinel Construction showed up this past Wednesday and by noon on Friday had made the required repairs. On Saturday and Sunday, Rose and I painted the replaced wood and made it match the rest of the house\. We have been fortunate that it has been sunny since they started and is forecast … Continue reading Wood Rot Finally Repaired
We are still painting the house. The south side is completely done. The west side has a few areas that need some touch-up, and the east side will be completed tomorrow. The north side, unfortunately, is kind of on hold due to wood rot that we found a couple of weeks ago. We have a … Continue reading Still Painting House
Actually, I only pressure washed the south and west sides, which was my plan. Before the washing I removed some more gutters and downspouts on the west side. We removed the ones on the south side on the 4th, along with the railings on the side deck. The photo was taken before washing. There is … Continue reading Pressure Washed House Tonight
