snowstorm Denise

This year so far winter is showing it's true colors....we had another great storm yesterday...up to 10 inches of snow in different areas and now it's turned cold with below zero chill factors. Chris was up at 3 AM to go plow and did it for several hours yesterday.

The house is at a stand still today but tomorrow they will be stacking the logs for the west wall.

Just some more snow is so pretty.

more pictures..

They have most of the wall out..just working on the was
 a bigger job than they thought it would be and then they decided
not to take the charred posts out for fear of things would
start falling and especially as a lot of snow is forecasted for
the next two days.

This is a picture of the ceiling in the dining room area... the boards are just
laid up there as  yet but it helps the electrician to be able to work up there,

Chris, Mason and of course SHOOTER were taking the
bricks out that the old fashioned cook stove was on.
I am excited that they have found a place to put it in
the "new" house!! Can still use it for pizza!

AND if there is nothing to do you can always see what Mason finds to do..

Wall is coming down..

Today the weather had turned to the milder the builders worked on the getting the west wall (the most burnt wall of logs). They went throw a lot of Sal blades trying to cut the windows out.

There was only one of the top windows that still had glass in it so they had to be extra careful. They also had to take caution so the wall wouldn't FALL on the deck..

carefully taking the window with the glass intact

working on cutting the screws that are holding the logs together

Honors Band and Choir

This past Saturday Trevor was one of those chosen from his school to take part in the honors band and choir. They get together with students from other schools and spend part of the day learning to play or sing together. Last year Trevor was in the band part and this year he was in the choir.

Both band and choir did a fantastic job...for the time they had to learn it.

memory card of Della

Thanks to my sister for texting this..
Death is an angel sent down from above
Sent for the flowers and the lilies we love
Surely it's so, for in heaven's own way
The soul is a flower of the Master's bouquet

Gathering flowers for the Master's bouquet
Beautiful flowers that will never decay
Gathered by angels and carried away
Forever to bloom in the Master's bouquet

We must be faithful till life's work is done
Blooming away in the warmth of the sun
But every bud and each blossom some day
Will bloom as a flower in the Master's bouquet

Death is an angel sent down from above
Sent for the buds and the flowers we love
Truly so, for in heaven's own way
We're only the flowers in the Master's bouquet

Loved ones are passing each day and each hour
Passing away as the life of a flower
But every bud and each blossom some day
We'll bloom as a flower in the Master's bouquet

Let us be faithfull till life's work is done
Blooming like flowers till the Reaper shall come
Then we'll be gathered together some day
And planted to bloom in the Master's bouquet
