Wood, Siding, and Leaves

Today was a pretty good day in terms of finally getting things done, well done to the point where we are winterized for the coming year. We actually finished getting all the siding up and secure that we can on the house. We still have one more window to install so the siding on that side will have to wait until the window is done. That, of course, is the window for the kitchen which is still under talks. Meaning that so far all the quotes we got for it are wayyyyyy out of our price range, so the window doesn't get changed, and the siding has to be put off until that is done.

We also managed to get one and a half rows of wood stacked in the basement. Only another eight truck loads to go before we are all done for the winter. Of course the rain started again today so I am hoping that we will have another week or so of sun and non-rain type weather where we can put our backs into the project and haul the rest of the wood into the basement. Or is that another fifteen truck loads? Where is my calculator when I need one?

This is a picture of the lake this week, I'm not sure how much longer the leaves will hang in there but they sure are making things awful pretty around these parts.


  1. All I can say is it's a good thing you're not hoping for that weather over in the middle here. It's looking like rain for another week straight (assuming the forecasts are remotely accurate). Nice picture of the Lake. Very serene.

    Does it ever not rain where you are now?
