Well?



"I think it'll fly."

B. Willard's been wanting in on the space ship action for awhile.  He, Murphy and Baaxter gave the "sheep camp" a good check.  And Andy just thought that was a fancy water trough...  He'll learn ;-).

This was my home away from home during the remodel.  The Jeff Foxworthy underpinning was for the couple nights it got in the 20's.  Luckily most of the late fall/into winter was super warm so the living was easy and I was actually sort of sad to move back home.  

Parked next to the barn, I could hear Graham and Petunia's bells chiming any time I woke up during the night.  I'd hear coyotes off in the distance, here Hank's "reply" and go right back to sleep.  Rain on the roof was a treat as well.  It was just like camping, but with a furnace, hot running water, a computer and a coffee pot :-).  

The remodel is basically done.  We are finishing a couple small projects and I have some painting to do.  I've  been waiting for some sunshine (natural light) to take some pictures, but I'm beginning to wonder...  I'll try to get some pictures this afternoon regardless.  It should will all be straightened up before the new year starts.

What are your new year "superstitions"?

You have made me wait long enough for those photos! Had no idea that you had a home away from home during the remodel.

Looking forward to some pictures! I probably would have liked camping out in this "mini-house". Sounds good to me! Happy New Year!

Only one. I HAVE to bring in the new year on the back of a horse – MY horse, if at all possible.

How delightful it must have been to have heard those bells during the night! Thank you for sharing such a sweet memory.

The sheep might like you to stay close by but I'm happy to learn that the remodel is almost done. I, too, look forward to the photos. Happy New Year!

What are my New Year's superstitions? I suppose some would call HAVING to eat black-eyed peas and greens on New Year's Day a superstition, but those would be ignorant non-southerners.

Are you going to leave the space ship parked by the barn? That should make the Boyz happy!

Mother's family would make a pillow case, on the 1st day of the new year, and put money in the pillow case. The pillow case was not used they stored the pillow case in the chest of drawer with all the other unused pillow cases. The superstition was to insure you wealth. I think we had about $5 when we cleaned the drawer out. The most money put in each pillow case was $.25
