We interrupt this sugarin' season....

.... to bring you this update on the log house:

Bob called me on the phone to say:  "I took a chainsaw to the wall of the house."

No preface.  No context.  Just:  "I took a chainsaw to the wall of the house."

Okay, I'll bite.   "On purpose?"


So he comes home with this picture of the slot he cut in the log wall for the interior wall he's framing up now.   He could have said, "I started framing up the interior walls, sweet honey wife of mine; I cut a slot in the log wall and I'll bring you a picture for the blog. (By the way, have I told you how beautiful you are?)"  But no.  He opens the conversation with, "I took a chainsaw to the wall of our house."   Bob, Bob, Bob....  don't you know I'm *thiiiiis* close to the edge as it is?   I'm just barely hangin' on for my handcrafted log house in the woods so I can withdraw from society, wear prairie skirts and bring a second wife into the family to do the vacuuming. 

Yes, I know I'm weird.  I'm also fascinated with the show Big Love. 

Where was I?  Oh yes.  Interior walls!  Isn't this exciting?! 

I know it looks like a board on the floor.  Well, it is a board on the floor.  But it's also the sill plate... base plate....  something that becomes the base of a framed up interior wall.  Bob told me not to post it because it was boring and not blog-worthy.  *snort*  He obviously has a higher standard for this blog than I do.  Plus, it's the beginning of a WALL.  A real, honest-to-goodness interior wall!  There's no stopping us now, baby!  Next:  a staircase!   Woo-hoo!

Sorry.  Did I get weird again?

Blame it on the overdose of Girl Scout cookies.  Or spring.  That works too.

Anne I actually held my breath until I read far enough to know WHY and WHERE he made that cut. Whew,... ok, I can breathe again now. :)

Ooohh... Aaaahh... OOOO

It's bee-YOU-ti-ful! (And pretty please with sugar on top can I be the second wife? I'd love to live with you and the kids... I'd even put up with living in the same house as Bob to make that happen. But it would probably be more like I'm just mooching off y'all because - obviously - Bob and I wouldn't be "married" married and of course I'd have to bring the Husband and Tongginator with me. So what do you think? Or maybe Bob could just build US a house, too. Heh.)
