I Couldn't Keep It In.

We finally got our phone back.  It had been out since last Thursday.  It rained.  Oh the joys of living in a very rural location.  Anyway, we got the phone back, but the Internet is very sketchy.  It comes and goes.  So while I had a small amount of it today, I thought I would keep in contact with you guys.
The weather is just wonderful around here.  Now is the time when we are trying to get everything done on the farm.  I wished the weather would stay like this for longer than it does.  There never seems to be enough of it.  It's either hot or cold.  With it feeling as good as it does, Hubby has been getting a concrete pad ready for our outdoor wood furnace that we bought TWO years ago.  Hopefully we'll be able to use it this year.  I think we will.  I have good vibes about this. lol.  He's been working really hard on it.

The pups (I really need to stop calling them that.  They are almost fully grown dogs now.) are doing GREAT!!!  They are starting to really come into their "jobs" now.  Chassis has decided that I'm hers and I can't go anywhere in the house without her being able to see me.  Good thing I can tell her to go outside the bathroom.  She does.  She just lays outside the door. LOL.

Holly had adopted Hubby.  I think she's in love.  She whines every time he leaves for work.  Then does a happy dance when he comes home.  If he goes outside, she is there beside him.  Yep, a match made in Heaven.

Now for a change of subject.... Remember when I said that some changes were coming.  Things that I was excited about.  Well, here it is.  I can't keep it in any longer.  We ordered one of these!

The one we ordered isn't exactly like this one, the roof is different and it doesn't have the lights on it, but you can get the idea of how it's going to be.

I'm soooo excited!  This is going to be MY place!  Not to live in, (although I plan on spending a lot of time here) but to work in.  I'm going to be painting, writing, and studying about herbs in here.  This is going to be my place to do what I want.  Our house isn't done yet, but the things that I want to do in this building, I wouldn't be able to do in our house anyway. When I was painting my last painting, I had paint ALL over the place. This building will save the walls and furniture. lol.  Plus, come on girls admit it, who wouldn't love a place to have JUST FOR YOU. Now, I DO!!!!  Once everything is set up, I plan on having classes in here.  Classes on painting, herbs, homesteading, and so on.  This way, people won't have to come into my house, which is still under construction, and I honestly don't want a bunch of strangers going in and out of my house. I think it's a great idea!

We ordered it three weeks ago and it's suppose to be delivered in four, so hopefully we will have it set up in a week.  We will still have to run electric and do the insulation and drywall, but that shouldn't take too long.  I will have it up and running before Thanksgiving if all goes well.

Now you know the secret that I have been keeping.  Of course you all know me, I couldn't keep a secret for too long. hehehe

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, owner of a she shack.

Love the "little house"! We have an outside wood burner stove, and love it....but it does use a lot of wood, so hubby will be quite busy chopping wood. However, your power bill will make up for the extra work. Also, you may want to consider heating the "little house" with the wood stove, we heat our (hubby's) workshop. Sounds like things are going good for you, happy Autumn!

D, we have an indoor wood stove so Hubby knows allllll about chopping wood. Hehehe! We have thought about heating the little building with the outdoor stove, but we weren't sure if we wanted to splice the water lines. We are still wondering though.
