On Sunday morning we took off to the woods and started cutting for the 2014-15 heating season. We found two oak trees that had been dead from the gypsy moth invasion three years ago and put more than a ton of weight on the farm truck. Here’s a view of the visit with nature.
We were there for about one and half hours and Hubby sawed the trees up and loaded the heavy pieces which were way to heavy for me and then I loaded the lighter stuff and enjoyed being in the woods.
I enjoy anything that involves us being outdoors together and I love the smell of fresh cut firewood. One of the trees was blown to the ground and heavier than the other because it soaked up the last rain. The other tree was still standing but the bark had fallen off. This will keep us nice and toasty next winter. All we have to do now is split the big stuff and put it in the woodhouse.
Not a lot of words. Just a few pics of the final results of the my family room remake. The first pictures are of the bedroom it used to be. I had so much fun cleaning and re-decorating it. I love to sit in here and read or watch chick flicks in the quiet.
First, as a bedroom:
This room is right off the kitchen with a large closet on the left that will store our winter coats and outer apparel of our guests.
Exterior door that’s not used much in the winter but open a lot in warm weather.
It’s a long narrow room with lots of light.
Now the makeover into a family room:
Chairs re-upholstered by me and my best friend.
Peaches, parakeet, lives in family room.
books and antiques
Eddie and I
The kids then and now
I think it’s a wonderful place to relax, watch movies, read a book, or just chill!!
It’s bright when I want it to be, cool in the summertime, warm in the winter, quiet when I need it to be, pretty, feminine and country! Now, I just need to clean out the rest of the rooms and make them just as comfortable but with a different look.
This is the blog for our little farm in Skagit county. Here we have Shetland sheep and Nigerian Dwarf goats. In addition we have donkeys, llamas, cattle, pigs, chickens, geese, and peafowl. The blog describes the weekly activities here.
