I was in the guest house cleaning the kitchen so boxes could be unpacked when the Cowboy came in the back door and said, “did you see this guy out here by the patio?” And I don’t think he was talking about a guy as in man!! Scroll fast if you don’t want to see the snake or watch the video. He was about six feet long and in a hurry to be somewhere else–we let him go on his merry way.
The Cowboy made so much progress today–good grief–I think he spent about 10 hours up on the roof and it wasn’t a cool day! The back side of the roof looked like this early in the day:
And by about 5:30pm it looked like this:
That concrete slab was all ready here and will be the site of a small garage/workshop. We are hoping to have a garage before we leave for the north country–it’s roof will attach to the one you see in the photo and one wall of the garage will be that side of the house. The entry door you see is leaving and we will drywall over that hole.
I wandered around Pearce this morning (didn’t take me long, it’s not very big) looking for someone who would accept UPS packages for drop off–I wasn’t successful, not one business in Pearce accepts packages for drop off. There is a UPS drop box but one of my packages was too big–so it’s either chase the UPS man or go to Benson.
After my search I began cleaning the kitchen–ugh!–cobwebs, who knows what on the floors and cabinets but it’s clean now. All the boxes we hauled from our North Ranch home are in the cargo trailer–I started moving some into the closet and unpacking others in the kitchen.
I had a new to me experience this morning–Laci and Lora called from Germany using Messenger video chat–I loved seeing their faces and hearing their voices–I love technology!

The FedEx man brought the Cowboy another new toy this afternoon–a Bosch Rotary Hammer. He will have to drill holes into that cement slab to anchor the walls. When we first toured the house the Cowboy said, I would like for that bathtub and toilet to stay in the same place–this is in the main house. I said, “so sorry sir, get your jack hammer out, it’s not happening!” The house sits on a concrete slab and the drains are located in that slab. The bathroom is tiny–tub and toilet are separated by only 4 inches–nope, not happening. My goal is to have a tiled, walk in shower–so glad he bought that hammer drill!!
