Good news/Bad news

The good news is that the east gable of the house is finished!  The Husband is gratified at the look of the wall, since he stubbornly insisted on making the entire gable log, instead of taking others' advice and making it 'stick' construction.  The windows are in, and it's considerably quieter in the house now.  Wierd.  Especially today, when it is crazy windy out.  Those windows are enormous down on the ground -- but in place, they seem smallish.  Not that we were aiming for a spot in Glass Home Magazine (Bob's derisive term for a popular log home trade magazine), but...     

The bad news is that the hardy country stock of a man with whom I'm wedded has pneumonia.  He is down for the count, to his great mortification.  So, he's not been working on anything the past week, nor will he be for another week, probably.  (His father and Johnny put in the east gable windows).  The Husband is on the mend now, but it's a long road back to stamina when you've got pneumonia, so we're in for another blogging furlough, unfortunately!  Meanwhile, enjoy these pics from today, and the completed east gable:

Oh, give Bob a hug from us! Make that man some soup! But make sure it's from a can - we wouldn't want him to get too spoiled. Heh.
