The wonders of the deep.

Ok, that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but we finally remembered to take a scuba diving mask to look around in the pond. The water is so crystal clear that you can even see twigs on the bottom. One thing I found was what appears to be a wall. It looks like paving stones which end in a big drop. Maybe this was the original spring before they built the dam to hold the rain water and make it bigger, maybe that is where they used to sit and enjoy the spring. I plan buying a throw away underwater camera to try and take some snaps next time. Also, hopefully a couple of snorkels.

Took Daphne, our foster dog, she was so good, staying with us and just hanging out. I’m not really sad that the potential adopter hasn’t contacted Friends for Life since the last cancelled meet and greet. She is adorable.

The bedroom floor is now finished, now to paint the ceiling. Should have done it the other way round….

DeAun attempted to hang a light and ceiling fan in the kitchen, but with all the shelves and shelves of tools and “fix it stuff” we didn’t have any electrical tape.Hopefully next trip.

Coming together

It’s been a while since the last blog. We’ve been busy brush cutting, brush cutting and brush cutting.

It’s finally starting to look like a house rather than a run down shack. DeAuns dad made us some wonderful Adirondack chairs for our porch, so very comfortable and pretty 1(1)

The bedroom floor just got it’s first coat of paint, it was supposed to be a pale terracotta, but is more like just a pale orange. I like it though, brightens up the room. Besides, I’ve never had an orange floor before. I’m also hard at work making rugs to scatter around but have run out of sheets to tear up.
