"Company's" Coming


This is our "company" and their house on wheels. They are not really company, as it is my brother and his wife, and they will be living here on their 20 acres with us come December of this year. They are going to retire from cross country truck driving. Some of you may be following Mary's blog on making their permanent home from shipping containers. And that process is going to start this week! They will be here for one month and hope to get a lot of work done. Oh, they do also have a 5th Wheel that is parked here that they stay in when on vacation from driving. The men have given up getting the "barn" up at this time because of the heat and working with the metal/steel. Just too hot and dangerous. That will wait until Fall.

Anyway, it's kind of like having company; especially when we don't have any visitors up here on the mountain! I look forward to having someone besides Ronnie to talk to! I spent yesterday after church cooking potatoes and eggs and making potato salad, doing dishes, baking a cake, etc. Was supposed to go to a meeting at church at 6 p.m. but it was so hot, and I was so tired of standing, that I didn't go. Shame on me! Ronnie went to his SASS shoot yesterday and was hot and tired when he got home early afternoon. SASS means single action shooting society; they dress up like 1800's men (cowboy type) and shoot rifles, shotguns and pistols at targets. It's a man thing I guess........although some women do it also.

Today was laundry and not much else after vacuuming. Ronnie worked outside mowing the yard and "orchard" and putting lattice up around the front porch. So that is done. Company got here around 5 p.m. and we had supper about 7 p.m. and then they went to their 5th wheel and bed. My brother had been up all night driving from Dallas to Kansas City and after a couple hours sleep, drove from KC to here - about an 8 or 9 hours drive. I think Mary may have helped drive from KC to here. I may be wrong about all that, but it's close!

So, I hope your Monday was a good one, and the rest of the week is too. Take care and God Bless.

You just answered my question. If no barn are they going to dig the hole for the house? Tell them hi for me. KAy
