we were up at the ranch Thursday-Sunday to move into and set up the cozy little cabin. I love it up here!!! Especially now in the little house that's a little warmer and has a few more amenities ;) nothing fancy but it's perfect for ranch life at Sharps Gulch.
we woke up EARLY Thursday morning for a 6am departure. Right when Peet's opens
stopped a few places this trip including the tractor store in Willows to order our first real farm implement for the ranch. Girls found ways to stay busy.
then back on the road. Red Bluff and a picking up the Troopy to take up there. By hour 7 JJ said she had to pee and Tess was crying so I performed two in car seat diaper changes without unbuckling them. I was pretty proud of my houdini skills ;)
State of Jefferson barn... In ranch country!
so we got up there at 2pm and started moving stuff into the cabin (all finished now!) to sleep there. It stays much warmer than the big bunk house and we redid the kitchen, put in new double paned windows, painted, new floors and bathroom remodel. I love how it turned out.
Empty house ready for furniture...
nothing better than an empty space ready for moving in! The girks carried ten things each in and earned a sunset ride out with dad to shoot ground squirrels while mom set up shop. Lucky girls.
Francie grabbed two root beers and said "if you're gonna shoot squirrels you gotta have beers!!"
I worked for awhile then ran to Ray's to get stuff to make dinner. Love the view from the driveway going to the grocery store. Somehow it's a peaceful experience up here!!
first dinner in the cabin. Pasta with pork sausage, French bread and salad. Forgot we didn't have any salt in the house but at least we had tobacco for Heff ;)
moved in pictures coming next!
