Time flies

I can’t believe it has been a week since I last wrote.  Brian got back last Friday and I returned from my dog sitting experience….and that it was.

The weekend was spent primarily enjoying the Jefferson County Farm Tour. We visited three farms on Saturday and six on Sunday. Didn’t think of taking pictures until the second day. Until I get them posted, you might seem them on my Facebook page.

Over the next couple of days, the Blue Heron crew continued stopping in the fixed pane windows while waiting for the awning windows and doors to come from topsider.  They also worked on trim.  Until the windows are here, they cannot do the siding.  They stopped most work before we left.

Before we left to return to CA, Brian and I finished painting the soffit and installed glass block windows.  These pictures were added to the blog later, as I did not do any updates the last few days as I was so frustrated with Topsider. We were working on the house site all by ourselves the last couple of days.

We also finished erecting a temporary gazebo on the island.  gazeboThey say to take it down in bad weather, but it was so hard to put up that it will just stay up and if it deteriorate, that’s the way it goes.  Eventually we would like a real gazebo. There is so much duck weed in the pond that it looks like it is solid green rather than water.  That is another project to get cleaned up.IMG_7444
