The Barn Begins

I am listening to the sound of men's voices outside. Deep, rumbly sounds. Often the sound of a laugh or two floats through the windows....

My dad and Tim are beginning the horse barn and shed today!

I fixed them a hearty breakfast of scrambled egg with bacon, toast w/organic jams and freshly canned local peaches. Oh and of course coffee for dad and peach juice for Tim!

The little ones are having a learning day - being the helpers and gofers. I am keeping the home front moving right along and later will be going over to our church to clean the carpet in the fellowship room.

The barn when finished will have two stalls and the shed area which will house hay, horse tack, and things like our mower. We are so looking forward to being able to put the horses in the stalls when bad weather comes. Right now they use a run in. The barn will add value to our property and if we ever decide to sell this place, having a 2 acre fenced pasture and barn will be of interest to horse owners.

I will attempt to keep you updated - 'cause I know your just dying to follow along! - with photos.

Have a wonderful day!
