This last photo is the veiw from my deck looking at the neighbors main entrance. Really hope I did'nt depress anyone this morning. I know soon that it will be much better for myself. I can hardly wait. Life is good, and can only get better from here. I hope.

The beaver were pretty busy building a dam.
We did see some wildlife, including elk, moose, squirrels, lots of different birds, a wild quad drivin jack russel and a weasel right on my own land. That might not be a good thing if I were to have chickens some day, but I really don't see much in the way of mice either.

I have been keeping myself pretty busy lately. Got the backhoe running, and my quad, and I have been doing some cleaning up out there. Also research. I have been reading alot of different things, on framing, and wiring etc. I usually just go and build things and not even worry about it, but it is a little different when you know the inspector will be involved.
They're forcasting snow for tonight, and by the sound of the wind outside, just about anything might blow in tonight.

Now I have been busy with other important things pertaining to my little project. #1, still hiding from work as much as possible. #2 Trying to get some front wheel bearings and seals for my old quad. It's been riding around in the back of my pickup on three wheels for quite some time now. The goodies should be in maybe Thursday. I went to a bearing place for my parts. Two bearings and four seals all for the price of just one bearing at the local Kawasaki dealer. They don't need my money very badly I guess.
She needs a couple new pins and bushings in the bottom of the boom.
It was an interesting day. I got all greasey and dirty and I loved it. Anything is better than measuring and drawing all day long. I got the boom off the tractor, and pins in hand. Tomorrow I'll see what I can do to beat John Deeres price for pins and bushings. Maybe I can get some built, and save a hundred bucks or so. Maybe I can build my own. We'll see. So thats whats going on in my life at the moment. Still being frugal, still being Candian and still being a hermit and still trying to keep everything as simple as possible, which is sometimes easier said than done.
