Sonny...our big ram..isn't he handsome?

Ruthies smiling! I think she wants grain..shes such a grain glutton :P

What I woke up to last week. Lovely, eh? *blah*

This is the view (yes..very is my day to pick up after yesterday's construction) from the kitchen into the mudroom...its technically the back door..but that's the one we use. The washer and dryer won't be there much longer (I hope)..they will be moving into the new addition and their own room. Ive never had a laundry room before..I'm kinda excited :)

New addition, view is from our bedroom door..looking toward the mudroom. to the left is the laundry room.
View of the bedroom from the bedroom door.

Standing in the mudroom door to the new the right is the laundry room..and straight ahead is where our bedroom will be.

On the wall in the of my projects yesterday..we had no place to hang I found these in a box and threw them up on the wall.

And finally the command center. I know it doesn't look like much...but...I put together all of those cabinets...secured them all to the walls (yes..i held that cabinet up to the ceiling by myself while i struggled to get a screw in there that would hold it...did I mention that my house was built by a bunch of drunk guys apparently who have no idea what 16" on center means? ) then I had to find the right width boards to put under the counter top so we could open the drawers...this thing kicked my butt! Today is clean up and I still need to finish stringing the electric fence for the second paddock...the sheep shearing guy will be here the 24th and I really need to separate them into their breeding groups so I have some clue about who is bred with who.

Well, it's nice to see that all is weather tight before the first snow. Things are coming along nicely in the addition.

When I remodeled our kitchen, about 10 years ago, I sat around drawing up all of my plans and figuring out where I wanted cabinets. Hubby knew I was going to do it, but I never discussed when! LOL He left for work one morning and came home to a stripped kitchen. I put a board across the doorway to keep my toddlers safe with a video in the living room and I started ripping out a crappy bar someone had added to the kitchen. Taking cabinets off the walls. I used a sawsall to cut out all of the countertops except the one holding our sink. You should have seen his face when he walked in and saw the naked kitchen!!!!! I had the wall primed and I too was building cabinets on the living room floor while the kids were still napping! I made my hubby hold the cabinets while I placed and leveled them. That was his job and so was the sink. I did all the rest and he is proud to point out that it's "her kitchen"!

I am a firm believer in "girl power"!!!!
Keep up the good work!

Question: are you on FaceBook?
Look me up, Kimberly Weatherholtz Pflug

I'm jealous of your mudroom. I would love to have one. The addition is awesome. You sure are making progress. Sadly, it seems we are not. Burnt out I guess.
