Went down to the house today to meet with a guy from Home Depot. (Igor) He spent about 5 hours showing us samples and helping us design the kitchen. Wow! It is an awesome design! But not something we can afford to do right yet. Over $14,000!!!! We will have to see if it fits in our budget someday! Brian also mowed the lawn and I unpacked a few more boxes.
Only 2 weeks until the work party. We have so many things to get done!Must make lists!

We have been down at the house for the last two days. We rented a back hoe and Brian spent a good amount of time moving an awful lot of dirt!!! We managed to dig a lot more out of the back yard area, to create a level spot to dig the well. He also smoothed out the lawn and did some filling in where it was needed. I tore down more paneling in the front hall and worked on unpacking boxes and organizing stuff. A very busy two days for both of us!

We had the witching done today by Carl Blunt. Interesting process! He was able to mark a good spot for us! Brian and I both tried it and only when he held the stick along with us did it work! He said he has located over 300 wells and over 80 with the this latest stick he uses! Now to get the well driller down here to see how deep we have to go!

We were finally able to spend two nights in a row down at the house. Unfortunately Brian caught some sort of flu bug, so did not get very much done, but was able to get all my scrapping stuff upstairs in the office and get it all organized. I even started the Memory Book for the house with sample of wallpaper etc...Did a lot of cleaning and sweeping upstairs. Tried to do quiet stuff so Brian could sleep.
When Brian started feeling better, he went outside and worked in the yard for a while, got the lawn mowed again! It seems to grow a foot every week!
Art Mc Mullen came down and we are going to get him to did the well starting mid month. But first we have to get it witched! How nice it will be to have water of our own and not from Richard's property.
