The sun is finally shining again so we were out to the lot today.
A little more on the construction of the carriage house.

'MEN AT WORK'
in-spite of all the rain.
This is the double garage (which we will keep heated) and the section for the stairs to the one bedroom
All four walls and roof will be up by Thursday.
MUD is the word of the day. You need to wear old shoes or rubber boots when dropping by to see the progress. Gravel should be brought in at the very end to make it a little less ugly here.
The weather is changing rapidly and mornings are very cool and dark until well after 7 am now. We are hoping to get in to our little 'mouse house' before the snow flies.
"Oh, do drop in for tea. I'll find you a spot to sit."
I'm preparing lots of drive-thru lunch spots for our local birds. No lack of trees for hanging feeders, that's for sure. I'll hang some close to the house near windows so Audrey and Annie can continue their love of bird-watching in the mornings. I'll be joining them with a hot coffee and my camera.
I can't let boredom get these cats.
It will be a 'teeny-weeny' residence for the winter so the cats will have access to both levels through a cat door. I think Audrey will get a big *bang* out of that.
He's been enjoying some of his most-loved meals lately...roast chicken and veggies being his favorite. And he wears one of my daughter's sweaters while he sits around the house to avoid a chill. He had a relaxing Sunday evening snuggled in his sweater and cozy on the couch while he...I mean we...watched Downton Abbey. I only hope to have this life when I'm 80.
I wish you all a good and peaceful day.
