We Have Been Busy! And Momma Got A New Ride!

Hi All! It has been busy around here the last couple of weeks. I am not going to write a whole lot but I do have lots of pictures to show you what we have been doing. The upstairs started out with just OSB and plywood floors. Oh and a crooked chimney for the woodburner!

Looking toward the bedroom area
Roger cut and put up firring strips over all the seams, enclosed the ugly beams and pole, and after I was finished painting, put down linoleum in the bath area and carpet in the bedroom area and my craft area.

Bath with Craft Area to the Left (Oh and a Straight Chimney!)

We still need to build a wall around the bath area but the weather turned nice finally so we have been outside trying to get the outhouse built. 

Roger just came inside and says the outhouse is almost "poopable!" Some days I really wonder........

The Tarp Ma Hall
Hey it works!
The weather has been really rainy the past couple of weeks, like rain every day so thank God for blue tarps! We put up the "Tarp Ma Hall" to use as a temporary workshop, and that is about the only reason anything has gotten done. Roger has set up his saws etc underneath it and it has worked well, until today when it got really windy so we had to re-secure the tarp to the woodshed and also parked the ATV on the one side to hold it down! 

All of this has been happening while also making trips up to the Post Office house to pack and move stuff here, find homes for the stuff we are bringing, which we don't want to move a lot in yet as we still need to do the flooring and kitchen on the main floor. Oh and a day of digging potatoes in the rain and muck, brought home about 70 pounds so I have been canning them....and Roger went moose hunting for a couple days with a friend from Texas that has a cabin near ours. And.....and.....and.... everything takes longer in the bush!

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST.........Momma got a new ride today! We were down to one ATV and it is in need of some repair and our friend Craig from Alaska Backcountry Adventure Tours was selling his ATV's as he is replacing them in the spring. So Momma is happy!

Well about time to get this posted and head to bed, tomorrow we have to be up in Skwentna by 10 so have to be up and at em early. I leave you with the puppies, and some beautiful clouds from the sunset a couple days ago. God bless you all and thanks for taking the time to share our adventure as it continues. Myra

  1. Wow....you guys are super busy and double that with the looming deadline of winter weather approaching. I am so glad you are back blogging. I really missed it. Your blogs remind me to count my blessings for the many, many things that I take for granted that you guys have to work so hard for. Nice new ride Myra!
