Wicked Walk 28/May/18

I promised y’all a walk soon and here it is! I suppose 97% of Americans who aren’t at work on Memorial Day spend it at the lake.  I am not part of the 97%.  First of all, I can’t swim.  I sink like a rock.  Secondly, I’m REALLY white.  Like, blindingly and I don’t want…

Taking Shape

I hope I’m not boring you with house stuff, but that’s the biggest thing going in my world right now. I’ve tried to take a few seconds to soak in the details. Wood shavings…. Penciled in notes….. And doors marked just for us. I told my husband, just last night, how this doesn’t seem real.…

Frame Work!

So, y’all know we have a slab poured.  Next stop, frame work.  I’m super excited about this for several reasons.  In no particular order.  1.  I can see my drawing come to life.  2.  Addie finally realizes this will be a house with rooms, not just a slab with walls.  3.  I can finally know…

Wild Game

With Thanksgiving a very recent memory, I would like to reflect on what I am thankful for.  I realize, as I troll social media and the internet, not everyone approves of hunting. Or raising your own food.  And, I find it rather funny, that I was not a hunter until I met my husband in my…

Concrete

I’m not a big fan of concrete.  Unless, it’s being poured as a slab for my dwelling or chicken pen.  This particular batch of concrete was destined for the house.  So I didn’t mind. There were a lot of men giving a lot of orders. Mostly in Spanish.  I tried to stay out of the…

House Progress!

Let me first express how happy I am to finally be having a house built.  I’ve been dreaming and drawing my house the way other little girls plan their weddings.  For. Years. Albeit, it is not my low-country cottage with enclosed porches and a library like Belle had in Beauty and the Beast, but hey. …

Hi everyone!

Hi y’all!  I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth, although some days it feels that way!  I’m just hiding out, rather unwillingly, waiting on the blessed day I regain internet service!  Good news is, my darling husband informed me, they are coming to set the forms for concrete tomorrow!  Happy Day!  That is…

Wicked Walk 7/31/2016

So, Addie and I spent a great deal of time at the new place, trying to catch minnows in the creek.  But, apparently the minnows in Maydelle sent word ahead to the minnows in Glenfawn, and well.  They were impossible to catch.  We walked the entire length of the creek, dabbled in each little pool…

Introducing……Glenfawn!

While I am residing without internet at my current home, I am VERY happy to report that the local eating/beer joint/hangout, has Wi-Fi!  Yay!  Happy day! So, for the first time in my life, I find myself on a Tuesday afternoon, camped out in a room full of strangers, blogging.  It is kinda fun (of…

Sneaky Snake

Last week, I was casually checking eggs and freshening up the water when I saw him.  Black, with a pretty pattern, small, glossy eyes and a red tongue.  He saw me too.  And he left, after participating in a stare-off with me.  I guess I won, since he left first.  I told Addie about him,…
