I think the extent to which I have any balance at all, any mental balance, is because of being a farm kid and being raised in those isolated rural areas.

More Candles

 The candle holders are old ink bottles found when we salvaged lumber from the Lohn School - they were under the floor on the ground.

Day 55 of 365

I know that this is a photo journal, but it time to reveal the finished outside. Most of you followers have figured out that my photos were in the past. Somewhere along the way I didn't get pictures of building the carport, making the chimney taller with the 100 pound rock on top, the rock work around the porch and the yard fence. Again, we did all the work ourselves, so not only is it a work of love, it took about 4 years to complete. Also during the outside process, we were working on the interior. I will begin posting photos of that soon. Thanks to all my faithful followers and all the wonderful comments. Hope you continue to enjoy the journey with me.
Merry Christmas
