Caffe Latte & the Wood Furnace

It's hunting season and my husband warned me that working on the house was going to stop until after hunting season. Well, I'm not a hunter, so I'm doing what I can. I had three different companies give me a quote for installation of our heating and cooling system. Hopefully this week, we will be getting that installed. We went Saturday and purchased a wood furnace, which will definitely keep our house warm. But, on those days when Eric is out hunting or we are away for a couple of days, the heat pump will kick on. Our rock back splash in the kitchen has been done for quite some time but, I don't think I ever got a picture of it up.

In October Eric and my dad made a trip to Colorado for a Elk hunting trip. They had a great time. I made a goal that I was going to get the house painted while Eric was gone since he despises painting. My cousin loaned us a sprayer to stain the outside of the house and we still had it. I figured that since I was working alone, spraying was the only way that I would get it all done. I took off work on Thursday, taped all the ceilings off and painted the primer coat. I was out on the farm all alone until 8:30 pm. It was dark and extremely scary. We only have 2 lights in the whole house and none on the outside! Then Friday evening I painted the first coat of color and Saturday I sprayed the second coat. The color is caffe latte and I love it. It's a beautiful color of paint. I'm sure you can't see its true beauty in this picture of the bathroom wall. It was a difficult 3 days but, I got the house painted and Eric was very happy with my efforts.

While I was painting and being too difficult to work with (I was being a brat), Mom was in the basement painting Eric a fall scene on the concrete block wall. Here is stage one. Stage two will consist of deer. Eric loves it so far. We both can't wait to see how it turns out.

Hopefully, it won't be so long until my next post.
