OK - here are some shots of the cabin and area.
This is a shot of the cabin from across the way, and that is the driveway
going up to it. That cross piece of wood by the cabin is the hitching
post for the horses when my Mennonite landlords, Mr and Mrs W
come to visit or if someone comes to repair something.
This is a shot taken from my front porch of the stone bridge that was built
by the W family, who built the cabin for their son and his wife.
A morning shot from the front porch.
The porch faces north, and the cabin sits in a valley
so there is fog every morning, and heavy dew.
Here is the dairy barn when Mr and Mrs W's son was
trying to get into the dairy business, but was not successful.
So the buildings are not being used now, but I am hoping
that I may find some use for them in the future.
This is inside the cabin facing the back, or south.
I think you can see the staircase going up to the loft, and
there is Alpheus on the cat tree.
This is the wood cookstove with my various "tools" needed
for cooking. I have just been warming up food on the stove,
and haven't really done any cooking yet, but am planning
a trip to the grocery store today to pick up a few things.
So I will cook tonight, hopefully.
This is kind of a dark photo - but it is my cat Sarah,
and a basket of goodies, and a flowering plant that Mrs W
brought over when she and Mr W came my first day in
the cabin. They came to give me a crash-course on
lighting the wood stove, and a few other things
I needed to know.
That's all the news from here. This is kind of haphazard, I know.
And I will do a better job of it next time, and show the dumbwaiter
where I can keep items refrigerated in the sub-basement.
So, I've made it a week here, and it's been easier than
I thought it would be, but it isn't Winter yet! LOL
Oh - the outhouse does have a toilet seat, so I'm not in
jeopardy of getting any splinters! ROFL
Take care All, and I'll write more soon.
Have a blessed Tuesday.
