Did I say "Spring?"

Oops.  I spoke too soon. 

Very heavy, wet snow.  There's about 6" on the ground right now and it's been snowing nonstop since yesterday.  My parents measured 14" at their place in the country and my in-laws measured 12" at The Lake this morning.  

And this is why I don't take the scraper/brush out of the car.  Ever. 

Even in July.

What a new Spring will bring!

Keeping my impatience at bay with some flashbacks.   Each Spring over the past 5 years has brought a new phase of building in our drawn-out Log Saga. 

To wit:

Spring 2006

Spring 2007

Spring 2008

Spring 2009

Spring 2010

What wondrous thing will Spring 2011 bring to us?

... we bring you this completely unrelated snapshot of our lives during the past two-week hiatus from log home building.  

In which our children walk home from the library.  Today was a beautiful day with no school (using up the unused snow days) and the kids and I walked to the library.  You can see Baby M striding along on everyone's lawns we passed, with her own few books in the Dora Backpack on her back.  What you can't see is that Little G is actually reading one of his books as we walked home.  He read one book while we were at the library, read half of another waiting for me to check out, and then finished that book on the walk home.  He's upstairs right now polishing off another.  It warms this word-nerd-Momma's heart. 

Sorry for the lapse in log-related posts. The Hubs is working on someone else's house right now.  We hope to rejoin our regularly scheduled programming shortly.

Kitchen frame-up

Well, hellooo kitchen! 

You're looking at the framed wall between the front hall and the kitchen -- see the recessed portion to accommodate the fridge?   You're also looking at the backside of the FIL.  Let's move on.

Remember my confession about committing log heresy by covering up the log wall in the kitchen and bathroom?  This is the first step to said heresy in the kitchen.  

It's also progress, baby!

80 degrees and another wall

The weather is nuts today!  80 degrees in the North Country!  In the beginning of April!  Just crazy I tell you!

We spent part of the beautiful day showing off the house progress to my sister and cousins who are in town for the Easter weekend.  There's another wall uuuuup....   [sing-song]

That's Bob and my mother and the bathroom with yet another wall framed up!
