Friday we kept moving in and setting up and by Friday night we had our neighbors over for drinks and card games!!
Friday morning Maisie doing breakfast dishes. That's one way to do it
YOYO lunch (love the term Jeanette!) fend for yourself kids we are working!
the girls and I put up some Instagram prints with washitape (printed with prinstagram)
and then the girls wanted to put up a rope swing - but an old feed bucket planter was in the way. So I gave them two shovels and told them to empty it out.
Tessa and I took a break to relax in the sun and watch them. Felt pretty good to sit down!
they convinced Dad and Derek to back the truck up to hang the swing finally
and we are swinging!! Not a bad view
the house is coming together. Front porch ready for sunset drinks and watching the rope swingers
I've been so excited to put this runner down. It's an old kilim rug I found at the flea market that has "HH" on it!
My old bed I got as my 13th birthday present - has a home again! The bedrooms connect by a bathroom / laundry room. It's a very efficient layout! ;)
and the mud room in the back off the kitchen. We put in fake grass to keep the dirt out if the house! Wine fridge, beer fridge, dog house - check.
meanwhile the girls were playing with dead animals on sticks and at as request only handling them with pliers. Gross. But I secretly love it ;) I was a gross kid too and proud of it.
we took a walk across the field to check on the minnows in the water trough and the sheep in the pasture. Our only current ranch animals... I think we need to change that!
Cheif Big Horn, Geronimo and Eugene doing fine
we worked til the sun went down to finish the house and then ran to Bob's Ranchhouse for dinner. And I forgot to mention this guy took all four kids on errands this morning so I could sleep in and work - these errands included the farm service administration and the DMV!! He's a machine.
and the Blacks came by for a nightcap - bourbon and card games! The boys were so cute playing with the girls. After cards they played hide and seek... Not hard here!
