A Post From J

Today at lunch, this big buck decided to chase does and rub trees in the backyard.


So it only seemed logical to try and call it in.  Benji is sitting on the kitchen counter with the window open.  And he actually did call it in, although you can't tell in the video.

A Hot Tub Story

J and I decided when we moved into our house that there was perfect nook in our garden for a hot tub.  This summer we made that dream a reality.  Here is the process.  J did all the work, and lucky me,  I get to enjoy the fruits of his labor!

Our garden before...

September, August, July, and June

Where did the summer go??  B started school this September and could not be happier to go everyday.   I have been making the most of my alone time and cramming in as much as I can each day.  It's great!
 Chillin' w/ gramps.
 J started a massive project, re-doing the shingles,  that took him about 4 weeks (not including the prep and clean-up).  Here is the worst of the mess...  I compensated by keeping the house uber-clean because I couldn't stand looking out the window seeing this.  At least that project is over.

 We went to our favorite places in Maine.  B still talks about the lobster he ate and asks when we can go back.
 Lot's of yard work!

 An awesome train ride.
