You haven't lived 'til you've started up a tractor and had a mama mouse come scurrying across the floorboard with a bunch of pink babies clinging to her butt. It's like some kind of alien spider.
such a funny visual I have right now.

Funny for you.
I still have thoughts about that every time I start the tractor

Congrats Beth! With a view like that it must be a pleasure to get up every morning. Wishes for solid construction, quick occupancy, and many happy years in your new abode. Or would that be adobe? Perhaps an adobe abode? Oh I so crack myself up! A party of one.

That's great news Beth. Now for the true test of your patience - dealing with contractors.

CG, that really was funny. Even though the HOA requires all homes to look like adobe, mine will be a wood frame faux adobe abode.

Ah yes, the views. All homes are situated to maximize the view to the mountain, and the view is stunning.

Went and did some grocery shopping early this morning!

Been relaxing on the recliner under the quilt the rest of the morning as it is so cold here today
