We’re Building a Loft Bed!

Wow!  A tough job in such a small home, but we’re doing it.  And we’re actually more than half way there.  This kind of construction is relatively simple, the biggest problem we’ve encountered is simply trying to maneuver such huge pieces of wood in such a tiny space…  to give you some perspective…  the bed will be 8’8″ long when completed (including the frame) and the space it is in is only 10′ wide.  So, it’s been a little tough.  LMAO  The space being so tiny is also what has made the loft necessary.  It really should make a world of difference for this family of three + four + one + one + one (all the pluses are for our animal family members).

Anyway, here’s what it looks like after day one of construction:

Our hearts will never heal.  On this, the anniversary of the attack against our friends and neighbours, we remember all those who’s lives were ended, and who’s lives continue to be affected by the loss of those closest to them.   Never forget.

Our old crooked fence

It’s been snowing steadily for the last two days.  And I have to say, it’s about time!  It’s close to the end of January, and it’s finally starting to look like the beginning of December around here.  🙂

Hmmm... frosty goodness.

I’d have loved to photograph all the crisp white snow with my good camera… but it’s still too much strain on my eyes.  Looking forward to picking up the D70 again.  I really am missing it.  Shooting for the first time sans-glasses will be an experience and a half.  It will be worth the wait.
