Some Excitement

You know how in the title of my blog it says, "Everyday's an adventure." Well, it's really true. Last night as I was writing an email, all of a sudden, I heard a big clank coming from the kitchen. I wondered what it was, so as I headed outside to see, Brett met me coming in. I told him what I heard and he explained that as he was making his last scoop with the backhoe, he hit and broke our existing water line. So we were without water until our plumber could come today and fix the line. It's amazing, you don't really realize how much you depend on water until you don't have it. It also shows you why it's important to have some in storage. But all in all, we made just fine and are happy to have water once again.

The good news from yesterday is that first of all, our porch was poured, smoothed, stamped, and powdered. I was so excited with the color that I chose because it was different from anything that's been done around here. But when they put the powder on it, oh boy, I've been really nervous! So we'll see what it looks like when they brush it off. I have high hopes, but we'll see!!






Secondly, our windows and sliding doors arrived! Yay!! Brett will be wrapping the house and then getting the windows and doors in. That will really help keep it warmer inside and make it possible to work longer in there. Oh, and last week, Brett and Dave made the arches on the porch, the dining room, living room, and the hall into the kids' bedrooms. They turned out GREAT!!!! I'll have to get some pictures of them. We'll see what other adventures await us in the days and weeks to come!

The porch looks awesome and I love the color! we did our back patio this spring in BLACK... it is awesome. The house is looking great and I sure love it when water lines get broken. Good times huh!

Look at all the progress! I can't believe how fast it is coming along. Hopefully you will be in it by Christmas.

I love the color on the porch! I have always wanted a big porch to put rocking chairs on...*sigh*...so I will just live vicariously through you!
