MARCH 2009                                      Click on (most) images for a larger view.

 
   
Signs of Spring are slowly showing themselves...

Nature certainly is tenacious... as proven by these lovely purple crocus popping up into the cold, cold of March... and the other bulbs fighting their way under and between these rocks in the garden...

 
And these little lady bugs all snuggled in waiting for Spring!  And... notice where they are snuggling!  Proof positive of the reflective capability of the P2000 - their body warmth was reflected back to them and kept them warm and snuggly during the coldest days and nights!  We peeled back the tarp to start working  on the east wall and there they were!
 
We started out this month to finish the north wall and the upper east wall....
 
cutting the next OSB panel... last piece of P2000 on north wall... good taping to seal... north wall done!

It is too windy today to  put the Tyvek on though... so we'll get going on finishing closing in the east wall...
 
taking the tarp off the east wall... south-east corner - glowing glulams starting to close in the 2nd level of the east wall...
 
But then a week into the month it was time to take another break as "life happens"...

Unfortunately circumstances arose that Thomas' tenants had to move thus he had to decide whether to rent again or sell this time.  So he spent a concentrated effort of designing a web page, advertising, and showing it.  Although he had a number of people interested, everything is moving slow in the selling market, he took it off the market to rent it.  That took some more time showing etc... but he was fortunate to find a great couple to rent it and they are thrilled with the place.  We spent over a week seeing to things there... cleaning it up, painting, carpet cleaning, and fixing a myriad of little things - again, manifesting our love into a place that will be someone's home.

Mid-month was the 3rd anniversary of Thomas' Mother's passing... so he spent a weekend in reflection over at the cottage.  I stayed here and spent my time painting at my Mom's.  It was nice to have some time to spend doing something for her and it gave me more experience in painting (which I'm not sure yet if I like painting or not; it did turn out very nice though).  I also was engaged in other family matters which required my own time for connection with family and reflection on life and death; my Father's wife of 28 years passed away.

It was fitting then that we finish up the month and "come back to work" to dig in the garden to connect with renewal and life...

  
filled with sunshine... more tenacious plants... "green acres is the place for me..." getting the crops in...
 
Go back to last month...    

Go to next month...
