Walking in the woods...

Since Flint is down for the long count concerning his leg surgery, Echo and Richard have taken to tramping in the woods around the property to investigate new smells, enjoy the crisp air and watch for wildlife.

Richard went up to the ridge above ours a few days ago and snapped a photo of our roof in the trees. The black spot near the center of the picture is Echo investigating something.

Echo keeps an eye out for moving

This is a shot of the moon in the morning a few days ago. The good thing about a digital camera is that we can simply take even "impossible" shots without wasting anything but a little battery power. Its been fun trying to get night shots, distance shots and everything else. Sometimes they turn out okay.

Watching the work...

Flint and Echo, despite the last two years of subcontractors coming and going on a nearly daily basis, still get nervous when anyone new is in the house. They've only "met" Nathan the cabinet maker once before.

Guarding the couch (and my messy house) and keeping an eye on the stranger.

I've been unpacking boxes and have no where to put the stuff I unpack. All the shelves, bookcases and display cabinets aren't in place yet. The roll-top desk has become a major piling place. LOL

P and Mom feed the birds through the winter. A couple days ago, Pa went out the door and the cardinals had taken over the picnic table. We figured they were having a party...
