Yesterday was cold! We got about 4-5 inches of snow, and the sun slipped in and out of the clouds all day. Yet we had a wonderful surprise. Visitors! Granted, they were rather shy and just walked around the yard, but it was great. Pics below.
It was cold in the house today, and we lit our first fire in the fireplace. It was a little smokey, but we figured we’d need to clean the fireplace. Dan finished fixing the stairs, so the trip to the basement is no longer an accident waiting to happen. The paint in the library dried, and I will need to do a second coat. The bathroom needs a second coat as well. Once that is done, and a few touch ups are made in the guest room, we will begin to move things into place. Book cases, books, and furniture. We will be moving tools into the furnace/tool room as well. The house is really looking good.

Well done folks you are getting there. Gosh I was surprised that the dear came so close. That’s an interesting looking building in the background.
We bought more paint today along with street address numbers, shelf clips, wall anchors and other bits and pieces to help move things along. The deer are very friendly. We’ve had them block the sidewalk. We also learn to plant gardens we don’t mind being grazed. As for the building in the back…
When we moved in the first time, it was an old boarding house that became apartments. There was a lot of traffic. Cars, girls on the wall, etc. My ex and I joked, saying it had to be either drugs or prostitution. Funny bit was that about a month later it was raided. Drugs and prostitution. About 10 years ago, there was a fire. It has sat vacant as the owner died. So, what was a beautiful building is now a husk of a building waiting to be torn down.
