Our” oh so beautiful,” temporary roof covering for the storage building is now protecting it from the weather until the permanent roof goes on.

c1We now have more room inside our RV and Roy’s truck as he moved everything he could to the storage building.  This created room in the truck for picking up the exterior doors and other things.

c2c3 c4We focused our energy yesterday afternoon on removing the last of the small or ugly pines from along the house side of the pond. Many of them were very close together which would have stunted their ability to grow properly.

c15c18When we finished that, we moved to the end of the pond and began cutting the small pines and the same thorned vines and bushes we removed from the first area.  We worked until we couldn’t do it any more and will pick it back up soon.  The area we are working on now will make a really nice gathering area to watch the children play in the pond and visit.

c13c14c17We’ll work on that side of the pond as soon as the weather gets nice again.  The last picture above is of just some of the pine trees and vines we cut down.
