I hope you had a good weekend! We had a GREAT weekend because we basically spent the entire weekend out on our new property!
We are waiting to get the water and electricity ran to the property, so in the meantime, we decided to build a shed down on the back of the property, behind the pond.
Jonathan and Adam helped Cy stake out where we wanted to build the foundation of our shed.
We rented an auger to make it easier to dig the post holes for the foundation.
We got most of the foundation built on Saturday.
While the boys worked on the shed, I ran to Lowe’s a couple times for more supplies. We have a Lowe’s five minutes from our house! YAY!!
Sania and I rode around the property a lot in the Polaris and picked up sticks. We also caught frogs and fished a little. Eli basically fished ALL DAY LONG! haha! We also had one of my friend’s grandson hanging out with us on Saturday, which made it even more fun! The more the merrier! :)
We took a break from building on Saturday and went to a local wood fire pizza restaurant that was so good! And then we came back and fished some more.
Of course, as the sun went down, we built a campfire and roasted some marshmallows. We didn’t get home until after 9:00 pm that night.
The next morning, we went back over to continue working.
We decided to build a shed with a slanted roof, kind of like the inspiration pic below (except no windows above the door.) And Cy wants to build an eyebrow roof above the doors like the second picture below.
So Cy and Adam framed up the front and back walls.
Here is the view from on top of the hill. Behind the shed, where you see more greenery, is where the creek runs into the pond on the right.
Before we finished, we got the roof joists installed and then called it a day!
As the sun was setting, Eli caught this bass fish! It was a good size and pregnant! woohoo! He released it, and we look forward to having more baby bass in the pond. The pond is super healthy and has some catfish and bass, but we hope to stock it with some more fish like trout and crappie.
Whew! What a weekend! We ended Sunday night with another campfire and some s’mores. I cannot express how peaceful it is out there. I love the sound of the frogs croaking and the crickets chirping at night. It’s like a lullaby to me!
Tomorrow morning, Cy and I have to meet the “electric guy” over at the property at 7:30 in the morning. It’s a 45 minute drive there, so we have to get up early! But we don’t care because we love every second we get to be there!
And guess what?!!! Luke will be home tomorrow!!!!
I have to pick him up at the airport in the afternoon! Jonathan is recording 3 songs for his next EP on Wednesday, and Luke will be taking pictures and videos of the whole day. :). He will be staying through Easter Sunday, so I am THRILLED!
Anyway, that’s all for now!
