  5. Good Morning Everyone!! I hope everyone is doing well! I'm going to try to watch the cabin work and do a little blogging but, it's coming to the end of my classes, which means for me a little extra work. I LOVE this cabin and I don't want to miss a thing, but if I want to graduate in June, I need to concentrate on the homework….just a little more….

  6. Looks like work is beginning on the landscape. Wish I had time to watch throughout the day. We sure are enjoying the nice temps here the past few days.

  7. Good Morning Everyone, I know it's midweek but I thought you would enjoy some Fresh homemade Apple Fritters this Morning…On the go snack for Anyone who just needs "a pick me up". ^_^

    A few observations this morning—
    1) Looks as though they are getting ready to install the front porch steps.
    2) So I think that would mean, they aren't going to cover the underneath part of the porch???
    3) I thought I saw the top cable is broken on far right end facing porch.
    4) Mr. Eastman has a lot of responsibility and has to be serious, but I would like to see him Smile every once
    in a while just to let Us know he is enjoying this Great place and journey he has taken on..He should be Proud!!.
    5) Everyone who has joined this wonderful project is doing an Outstanding job and should be so Proud!

    Just some My Thoughts:p^_^ Have a Good Day!B)<3

    • Just some of my thoughts

      Jennie/Florida on May 8, 2013 at 10:34 am
    • These are some great thoughts! I hadn't noticed the broken cable–I've been working on homework–I also agree with you, these wonderful people that have been a part of restoring "our" Cabin have done an outstanding job and deserve to be recognized.

      Thanks for the Apple Fritters!!! Just what I needed to help me along the way… <3

      TishaStanley on May 8, 2013 at 10:53 am
    • Good any time Jennie ! ;) You always make my mouth water with your choices. Wouldn't it be great if the winner has a get together and the bloggers could attend ? Everyone could bring their speciality ! ! Some of us live too far away but would be there in spirit ! ;) <3 What a time would be had. There I go again, Dreaming. Well, I had better do some things that need to be done today.. Have to come back to the "real world" once in a while. Bye for now- best to all ;) <3

      Nan on May 8, 2013 at 11:11 am

  9. Hi guys! I hope everyone is having a great afternoon. I have been trying to watch on the cam but it hasn't been cooperating too well. :S Guess we all have it busy, busy, busy! haha It does look like they are doing a lot of things in the yard today. Seems they are working on the paragoda and going to be putting down some rocks down and making some platforms. Hopefully we will be able to see the firepit and things start to take shape as well. It is getting so exciting being able to watch them again!!! wooohooo Much Love!! <3<3

  10. So far what I can see is steps on the west side by the mud room, and 21a being put down between the posts under the pecan trees.

    • Are you talking about the gravel, or whatever that is?

      karenlin91 on May 8, 2013 at 3:36 pm
    • Yes it is a compact able base, usually used to pave or concrete over, but not always. But you can get 100% compactability from it.
