Coffee Time

Yesterday we had a nice visit with Burette. Steve and Johnny got leaves raked into all the pens/kennels. Drew stayed in bed all day. Today we are going to pick up wood for replacing the doors/windows and fixing the small amount of rotting wood in the mobile home. Can I say I can't wait to move the bedrooms to the mobile home!! Right now I am enjoying my coffee. Have a great day everyone!

Goodmorning all! It is cold here in east Tx ...only 32 degrees. I don't do cold very well. Steve <the gentlemen who is thinking of moving out here to live with us, and here on a trial visit...bunking in with Johnny my nephew>cleaned dog kennels, raked a bunch of leaves and pine needles up yesterday... put some in the kennels for the dogs to stay warm and cleaned Bacon's <our pot belly pig> kennel. We burned some brush and had a friend Layden down from Corsicana TX.  Today if it warms up I will get back on the laundry with seems never ending. The sick Beagle Lyle seems to be doing better. Bev 
< lady with Pitbull staying with us> is still trying to figure out a way to find a place to live that will take her dog that she can afford. Drew had to go to the hospital yesterday as the cold kills his back, so he spent all day in bed, I hope he will feel better when he wakes up. Samantha's<our roomie> meds don't seem to be right and she wasn't feeling good yesterday either. Talked to Troy our camper about giving him a long term lease yesterday if he wants one as he is a great guy. Today our friend Burette is coming to visit from Tyler, so guess I have to throw some clothes on and clean the cabin. For those that ever lived in a TINY space <16x24 here> with 4 adults, 7 dogs <currently and don't forget Steve's 2 ferrets>... the place gets messy fast! Well I hope everyone has a great day. Right now Bev is doing dishes, Drew...Sam...Johnny & Steve are still in bed and I am enjoying my coffee. Tomorrow is figure out the bills day which I am not looking forward too. Have a Blessed week everyone!

Drew finished getting the gate up. Sam cleaned the gutters. I moved one of the wood piles, did some laundry, raked the path to the bath house and burned trash. Troy cut a couple trees and moved his motorhome around. Drew moved the old suv. Bev helped doing various stuff. The place is shaping up. We lost one guinea last night, we think Molly the feral dog got it. We enjoyed leftovers all day. YUM Drew's pickup is not starting, so he also worked on that today. Drew and I will be heading to Dallas tomorrow to see all our friends at our thanksgiving party. I can't wait.
Lyle is still not feeling well.
