red roof !!
Got me a red roof going!!!! Painting the bathroom ceiling this morning! I like it!!! I do not know if I'll get to the walls, (they will be a brown tone) today but tomorrow will be on that, need to do some school after lunch.
I think I told you all that some of them had slept out on the land a week or so ago. Well, Bethany, Caleb and Daniel slept out there Friday night. They built a camp fire to stay warm, it was very cold that night, maybe as low as 37* I guess they do not know the "boy scout" rules.....ALWAYS make sure you put your campfire is out! SOOOOOOO, Daniel got a lot of under brush cleared out.....about 20 acres!!! The guys and Terry were gone all day Sat. to help a family in our church. They all got back and Dave, Kate, Anna, Elijah, Micah, Andrew, Bethany, Caleb and Daniel headed out to the land. They were working on Dave's land and Micah had gone to C& D's land to see about something and he came running back breathlessly. Caleb's campfire had lit up and they had a ground fire going. The volunteer fire dept, (but not the one Elijah is on because a different county) came and had to help put it out! I guess after it was all out except for some hot spots, it did benefit by burning up all the thorns and underbrush. It could have been really bad if the wind went the other way. Thing is, you could not see it from the road. Only a few cedars went up, it stayed low but it did cover about 20 acres. The girls said they were using shovels and cedar branches to hit the flames. It never ceases to amaze me, the things our family can get in to!!!!! We really are thankful, it could have been terrible!
We did a lot of garden planting Friday, I'll be back in a bit to post garden stuff!!
