Anyway, I think the ongoing stress threw me into a bit of a funk and I seem to have lost all interest in blogging. I've been wondering whether or not to keep it up at all, even though I still have lots to talk about. I have to admit, I've been enjoying the extra free time in the evenings, but I've been missing my blogging friends and desperately need to do some catching up - I hope you're all doing well.
Here are a few photos (taken with my new camera!) from Monday's trip to our property:
This is the view down the trail that runs past our property. We seem to get a lot more snow here than we ever do in the city (it was warm and rainy in Vancouver on the day this was taken). We're excited about the prospect of having four distinct seasons!
Here's my grandfather inspecting our foundation forms. He worked as an engineer for the Canadian military and has built structures of all kinds in places from the Arctic circle to the Middle East, so he's proving to be a valuable resource throughout this process.
Electricity is getting hooked up on Friday, concrete will be poured on Monday, and then the walls should start going up. We might actually have an outer shell within a month or so (but I'm not holding my breath)... ;D
