Haven’t been cooking much lately…my bad. I am exhausted.
I’ve been thinking that I should explain my lack of interesting things to eat to those of you who actually keep coming back to see what’s been bubbling in the oven or on the stove! Thanks for that, by the way!
A couple of months ago, Hubby thought we should make the switch from apartment renting to house renting. I (aka Personal Assistant Girl Friday who also happens to cook him yummy stuff to eat) was tasked to see if such a thing could happen.
After investigation, the outlook was pretty dismal.
We had a reassessment moment…listed the pros and cons of renting v owning…and decided that we needed to build a house.
I have three acres of land in a fairly rural community on a little bayou just south of Houston that my parents gave me when I married Hubby. So, being long on labor and short on cash, we are clearing the first by hand…
This is how it looked when we started. Scary, right? I think Bigfoot is lurking in there somewhere.
My boys are working SO hard!
Even my parents, in their 70s and 80s are helping out!
After a couple of weeks, the pile of stuff we’ve pulled out seems enormous!
As of today, we’ve accumulated such a large brush pile that we had to have it removed! With a front end loader.
Really, it’s pretty amazing how different it already looks.
They took away 4 trailers of brush on Saturday. They’re coming back for the rest on Monday!
So, for the moment, posts will we fewer. I hope to make up for the lack of quantity by the bounty of quality.
And then, I will have a kitchen with actual windows and sunlight!!! I might even be able to post pics of my food looking as appetizing as I keep telling you it is.
And as a bonus, because it rained this week (so I got to take a day off), I will post actual food.
