(Pay no attention to that middle-aged woman with the hair that looks like a gray football helmet.)
I want to write about Autumn Leaves, but I guess I’ve just about played that subject out. Don’t fret, though…because I might try to sneak in a few more posts and pictures about them, anyway. I’ll probably be posting pictures of them until the grand finale…when I rake them up and burn them! Hehe. Last year was stupendously exciting. Last year, we were not actually living here. When we arrived here, Autumn was over, and the leaves were already on the ground. THIS YEAR…well…the magnificent crescendo leading to it…the leaves all aglow, glistening in the breeze, floating slowly down from the trees…watching the leaves turn colors and then slowly collect on the ground…it’s almost more than I can stand! I have no patience. You know that already. Anyway…enough about Autumn Leaves.
I know that there is nothing quite so exciting as looking at pictures of the skeleton of a building on someone’s land (especially if you don’t know them that well) so…I’m giving you MORE. Back by popular demand…MORE pictures of the skeleton of our building.
It’s really coming along, I tell you! They won’t be back to work on it until Tuesday, so…I’M SORRY…after today, you’ll have to WAIT to see more pictures of our building. So…without further ado…I hereby proceed with what my friend Lee Ann calls a ‘picture dump,’ and I can’t think of a more appropriate term given the sit-yee-a-shun.
They cut the hole for the stairs and I was able to go up to the loft.
They framed the windows for the upstairs and put up wood and tar paper on the roof. It will have a metal roof that matches our house.
Back side of the loft:
View from the loft. Check out those Autumn Leaves.
There is actually a beautiful hill out there, which, due to my amateur photography skills, is marred by the brilliant sun.
Most of the windows will be old windows, but we purchased new, large windows for the upstairs. So there you have it!
Just for good measure…I have some pictures of progress on the chicks for Wednesday. They are growing like weeds!
‘Hope y’all are enjoying this Happy Autumn Day!
The falling leaves…
…drift by the window
