Cat Napping.

Bend is currently medicated. Mike is jet-lagged from coming back from foreign travel. All of this means a hell of a lot of cat napping happening at our house!

When The Small Things Matter.

I adore taking macro photos of plants. I love spring and summer for this exact reason. All of the small things around the house make me feel better about not being in the house. Happy Friday to everyone. I hope you are enjoying your spring months as much as I am!

Exile Day 80.

The burnt room is now a lovely orange color!

They grouted the kitchen is done.

The bathroom tile is down - although we still have to pick out the fixtures in there. Can anyone say TIRED of Lowes???

The den has tile and grout. Seems like all the little stuff is taking forever.

Gnome You Glad You Met Me?

I got these wonderful glasses from a sweet design company out of Canada. She always has great stuff and now I have gnome glasses of my very own!

Weekend Relaxing.

Mike returned from a trip this weekend. We got a whole lot of nothing done. We off roaded up Pipeline (which was painful and yucky - but we were able to help pick up drop bags from the Jemez Mountain Run). I got some yarn dying done and a few runs in. Otherwise .... relaxing!

Exile Day 72.

Out of the castle of boxes Moab has found a home. High up - out of the way - no one can see her (at least that is what she thinks). Perfect little cat home! Is exile so bad ... Moab doesn't think so.

Bend - Supermodel

Bend likes to lay around in some of the funniest positions. I caught this one yesterday. He would make a great super model!

Yard Working!

We got 25 stunning railroad ties delivered on Thursday. We will be cutting and moving them around the yard this weekend. Getting ready for summer time (which I can only hope gets less windy).

These are all over the property and blowing in the wind. I love them!

What We Picked Up.

This is all of our clothing and fabric goods. Well most of the stuff other than bedding and some clothing that is hanging up. The cats like to think of this as Meow Meow Cat Tower.

Exile Day 67.

The tile guys started in the kitchen today. We are loving the tile - but still have to pick out grout.

Dry wall has been patched - but not textured yet.

They have more of the windows fit in. Shimmed up and getting ready to seal up.

The gas company has dug a trench to move our gas meter (which they need to do before they can finish up the windows in that room.

Basically they say by the second week in June we should be in the house ... but I'm not holding my breath. They guys are working fast - but it seems at every turn there is another issue that keeps the process from going quickly.

Glass Jars.

Today at the local farmer's market I bought pickles. A glass jar of wonderful looking herbs and pickles. I of course love pickles ... but it isn't just the pickles that I'm excited about. I love glass jars. Regular old glass jars. They sit on the shelf and ooze of possibilities. The things you can do with them ... well excite me.

Exile Day 63.

Since we aren't in the house we are trying to get back yard projects done. We live in the high desert and are trying to take out some grass - put in rocks - and of course get the gardens up and producing.

Here is the pumpkin patch (with the new watering system) and the super secret project (which is going back by the fence). More on this once the project arrives in the mail.

Here is the general garden area. I had to move my tomato plants (so that the construction guys can get the new window in). 2 of the 3 plants transplanted okay - but the third broke. I hope that the little plant will survive).

As you can see the seeds I planted weeks ago are popping up.

Ah - bulbs still coming up!

Urban Chickens.

Ever wonder what Los Alamos county has to say about chickens in your back yard.

Good to know - I'll keep the spray paint to a minimum!

Blog Win.

I just got a prize from a blog entry. Val from Collecting the Moments sent me these groovy bowl covers that she made. She is a super crafty lady up in the NW that is always up to something wonderful. Thanks Val!

Exile Day 58.

As you can see they are getting ready for the windows. They should be in tomorrow. It is crazy to look at all the stucco and crap they are pulling out around the windows.

They have started painting the den. It is sort of hard to make out the brown color - but we think it will look very nice with the floors that we have picked. They still have another coat or two to get on the walls - but it is coming along nicely.

Current estimate for getting into the house ... well they have no freaking idea. Turns out they have to move our gas meter and the line (which falls into where the window will go). As they dig into the walls ... the more they find!

Race Weekend.

We had a wonderful weekend at the track in Deming. Mike did his fastest lap time at this track and even took third in a tough race. The winds were crazy fast and pretty uncomfortable for driving back in ... but we got home safe and sound and are hoping to be back in our house before the next race weekend. Fingers crossed!
