(Me at a farm park we visited yesterday)



Hello everyone,

I am blogging to help me keep on track. I was going full steam

after the cabin build and ended up spending over what I needed

to. Thus I had to step back and take a extra few days away

from the build.




My shoulder has gotten more rest and this is a good thing.



This is planned as we are building loan free.

We will be working just one day a week on the cabin

the next few weeks but plan on a long day thus getting more

done.

I did gain back 1/2 pound normal water etc and am not

upset about it. I did over do it eating candy night

before last and knew it would catch up to me..

This said I did well yesterday and plan on a

better day today! emoticon



My stress level is 2 today due to the

regular issues.

    CHRIS, FIRST OF ALL, THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND COMMENTS ON MY BLOG.

IAM NOW UP TO DATE WITH YOUR CABIN BUILD AS YOU KNOW I HAVE BEEN AN AVID FOLLOWER OF IT. IT IS NOW LOOKING ALOT BIGGER OR IS THAT AN OPTICAL ILLUSION. WHATEVER, IT IS SURE COMING ALONG NICELY AND,FINANCES PERMITTING, I THINK THAT THIS TIME YOU WILL GET IT DONE BY THE END OF THE YEAR. YOU HAVEALL SUMMER AT YOUR DISPOSAL AND, BUSINESS COMMITMENTS ALLOWING, YOU WILL START TO GET THINGS DONE A LOT QUICKER.

THE ONLYREMAINING QUESTION I HAVE FOR YOU THIS TIME ISHOW ON EARTH WILL YOU BE ABLE TO GT UP AND DOWN TO THE PLACE IN IWNTER TIME? IT DOES LOOK A LITTLE REMOTE AND I DO NOT SEE ANY TARMAC SO I WOULD IMAGINE THAT ANY INCLEMENT WEATHER COULD POTENTIALLY CAUSE A FEW HEADACHES BY MAKING THE TRACK SOFT AND MUDDY.

IT IS A DREAM FOR YOUTO BE REALISING AND I WOULD LOVE TO BE IN YOUR SHIES RIGHT NOW. A LOG CABIN IN THE WOODS WOULD BE MYIDEA OF HEAVEN, ALTHOUGH I THINK IWOULD BE LIVING IN IT ON MY OWN, LOL. THE GIRLS LIKE TO BE NEAR TO CIVILISATION TOO MUCH.

ANYHOW, ONWARDS AND UPWARDS MY FRIEND AND I WISH YOU ALL THE VERY BEST WITH YOUR ENDEAVOURS.

    Everyone needs rest days. The cabin will be there when you get back. LOL. Don't worry about the weight gain. It happens to us all. Normal movement of water in our systems.

    All work and no play would make Chris a very dull boy so glad to hear you are slowing down a bit and doing something besides work. Everyone needs a break in the routine.
Yeah, Chris!!

    Great work and good strategy for staying on track. Thanks for the comments on my pictures and if you make it to Oregon, yes, I will mend your shirts, but unfortunately, the 50 year old sewing machine needs a little more TLC again. Something about needle size vs thread size from the dummy who operates it. I need to be a mechanic too.

You will have to learn how to hand stitch with a needle and thread. LOL.
