I have an 8 year old grandson living at our house. Sometimes he is heard to exclaim, "Seriously!?", while rolling his eyes. (The only people that will find this post amusing are those that have heard and seen him do that :)
Yesterday, Ron picked up our final house plans from the architect. (Actually he picked up 6 sets of full size drawings.) We will not mention the exact price tag on this set of plans. But lets just say that my Dad is somewhere in heaven, rolling his eyes and loudly exclaiming, "Seriously!?"
(and I am seriously missing him and his wisdom on this project)
Anyway... phase 1 complete. Getting ready to begin phase 2.

Today, Ron is there at our property. He met two young men there at 7 am this morning to start stacking firewood (logs cut and left from the tree clearing). Also, Ron is going to start clearing out the "back slope". Most people speak of a "back 40", we will be speaking of a back slope. Behind our house the yard makes a rather steep slope down to the Medina river. It will take some serious leg (also back and arm) work to clear that out :) Since he had to be there at 7 am and it takes 4 hours to get there from our house in Katy- he knows how to ruin a good nights sleep (for both him and me :)
