We are making plans for departure–time to head north–between the heat and the snakes, it’s time! The wind has been relentless and our well driller Brian tells us April is the windiest month in this valley. We have to finish the roof on the garage before leaving. Finishing the roof is such a priority I even volunteered to help and danged if the Cowboy didn’t take me up on my offer Wednesday morning! Unfortunately the wind only cooperated for less than a hour.
I have a healthy fear of heights but as long as I stay back from the edge I do OK. My problem is I can’t take that last step from ladder to roof–just can’t do it. So, the Cowboy came up with a solution–he hoisted me up in the backhoe loader bucket–he really wanted my help! 🙂
With the wind howling we’ve finished other projects–the Cowboy finished fine tuning our plumbing system from well to guest house. He has started storing supplies inside our new garage–
Today we finished hanging the drywall in the living/dining room of the guest house–
This evening late after we had been to dinner at the local bar the Cowboy finished a project he started this morning and kind of forgot about–rodent control!
The dang varmits keep trying to dig under the foundation of the house at this spot and have been successful in the past. So, a few concrete blocks and some ready mix concrete and hopefully they won’t find it so easy!
The wind, dust and smoke is creating some outrageously beautiful sunsets each evening–
That’s our houses, motor home and trailer as you look east–you can see the layer of dust hanging in the mountain foothills.
