|The girls are happy to be home!|
After thinking it through we decided to leave the 5th wheel in the garage and live in it while we were here. The 5th wheel seemed HUGE after being in the camper for so long.
|No sunshine and dish TV but it will do for 2 weeks.|
Instead I worked on installing outlets and light switches. Every time I hook one up and flip the breaker it was like a mini victory when it worked. Forrest did a great wiring everything. I had to call him for a lifeline a couple times as I had no idea how to do 4 way switches and could not remember which switch to use as power for a couple of the lights. I am happy to report that all the lights and outlets worked just like they were supposed to!
We had lots of deliveries expected the first few days after our arrival. The first delivery was the shower/tub unit for the upstairs bathroom. When the delivery guy arrived and unloaded it from his truck he asked where I wanted it. I about said “In the garage is fine”. But I thought, what the heck and said “In the upstairs bathroom”. He did not seem to mind a bit and to the upstairs bathroom we went!

|These will eventually be finished and serve as accent timbers in the livingroom|

|That was a big herd!|
|These two were doing a little sparring|
|The herd bull was making lots of noise|
|"Hey lady, got any food in there?"|
|Ready for our ride!|
|These two refused to get out of the way and we ended up going around them|
|How old do you think these buildings are?|

Carol left early Saturday morning and we had just a few hours to get ready for Kevin and Cheryl's arrival. Sunday morning Kevin and Cheryl were over bright and early ready to tackle the roof. We had quite the system going.
Barb and Cheryl were on the ground and stood up the 18' panels to Kevin who was standing in the skidsteer basket 16 feet in the air.
|Ready to work!|
|Cheryl and Barb standing the 18' panels on end|

The next day we finished one gable end and installed the roof vent. That is enough for now....
Upon seeing that everything stopped and I went out hunting!
Wednesday morning we finished packing up and hit the road. We are headed west for a few weeks in Oregon where we will stay at Forrest's and where our daughter and family will be flying out to visit for a week!
