It seems our life is on hold at the moment.
The picket fence is on hold because we had to put in the insulated pipe for the new wood stove.
Now we are waiting for the
arrived yesterday but didn't.
So we have a hole in the ceiling...waiting.
Looking up into attic and beyond
This is where previous home owners put the stove pipe with single walled uninsulated pipe!
Thank goodness the stove people said with the new double insulated
stove pipes and shields that the wall will be safe.
Yesterday we drove a 40 mile round trip
to pick up the stove pipe.
So...now we have the
new stove pipe in and chimney cap on
but still waiting for the stove.
Today we need wood for the fence and arbor and my glasses need to be picked up. That's about 25 miles
to the south of us.
THEN...if they call about the stove we have to drive
the 40 mile round trip AGAIN
(once we get home).
That folks is one of the downsides to living in the country.
In between all this we have picked all the pumpkins.
If any of you live close enough to us
you are welcome to come
and get a few!
Yesterday these were still growing in the garden.
Romeo waiting to be let in the garden.
The 'girls' waiting...
They were predicting our first freeze last night so
yesterday DH and I went out and picked all the green tomatoes. We were shocked at how many we had.
The garden has done better this fall than it did all summer!
I didn't have time to take a picture so I'll try
and remember to do that today.
Anyway...that's been our life this week.
I hope your week has been a good one and you are going ahead full steam with all your projects.
Enjoy your weekend!
