Blue Skies and Sunshine

The sky is blue, the sun is shining, the birds are singing and my little chicks are out playing. It's a good day.

I went yesterday and ordered all the metal for the house. It was exciting but a little scary at the same time. Fortunately, those prices have come down some. The trusses and the framing lumber is scheduled to be delivered on Tuesday and I think the builder should start next Thursday. Wow, it seems like a long time coming.

The weather here has been crazy. It's in the upper 70's today. Not sure if we're going to have a winter or not. While I've been out in the orchard the last several days, the geese have been flying overhead. But they are already flying back north! What's the deal?

I think today I'm going to town to look at doors for the house. I've not yet decided what kind of exterior doors I want. I had no idea there are so many different doors. I've three doors to pick out. My kitchen and family room is going to be one big room with the kitchen in the back. There will be a door off the eating area to the carport and then a front door. The other back door is in the utility room. Since we always have a breeze here, I would like screen doors. So what kind of front door do you cover up with a screen door? I'm open for any suggestions...please! I'm including an older picture of the barn. The house is going to match the barn except the house will have great big cedar posts across the front porch. I was thinking of a green front door with a Texas Lone Star in it...but then I don't want to cover it up with a screen door. I keep thinking if I look long enough something will come to me...I don't have too much more time to be looking!
Happy Trails...

  1. They make screen doors where you can only see the screen when you have it "opened". When the screen is not up, it is just a glass storm door. They are great and you can still see your nice door.
