This summer we've been doing lots of work around the house! One of our biggest projects have been painting our house. Our house was mainly white with our gutters painted green. I wanted to repaint our house completely white, though Dean wanted some color. We both agreed on a very light blue "iceberg", sometimes it looks light blue, sometimes white and other times grayish all depending on the lighting. All the trimming is going to be white.

We were both extremely nervous about picking out our paint since good paint is so expensive, however we are both still happy with our choice

This is the only picture I have at the moment for comparison; our painting isn't quite finished but as soon as it is I will post a finished picture!

New addition

So we experience our first tragedy two week ago on our little property. A neighborhood bobcat managed to squeeze her way into our large coop that we though we did a great job of keeping it predator proof. However she managed to open the bottom of our door about 6inches or so. In the chaos she managed to kill my lovely crested khaki Campbell and my best layer Rhode island red. Luckily the rest all managed to get to safety in time.

The way she manage to get into our coop she couldn't get out with the help of Dean. In the end though I've been dealing with a lonely Khaki Campbell the last week. Luckily this Saturday I was able to find a five week old female. My duck is now happy  again and a huge burden has been lifted. I was always feeling so bad for him that I was spending lots of extra time with him.

Here's the couple now both happily following each other!

It's been too long!

I'm sorry I havent posted in forever! Unfortunately we've been doing lots of work on our house the past couple of months; including painting the outside which is extremely time consuming because our house needed lots of preping. While we were preping the outside, we got rid of lots of wires that were no longer being used so Dean thought. Well it turned out one of those wires was for our interenet!

We didn't call our interenet providers to reput the cord up since we were going to be painting the house anyway. So for the last two months I've had no interenet! And unfortunatel my smart phone is a Tmobile G1 from 5 years ago so it's no longer so smart; making it unable to use to write blog posts! I can't wait to write up some posts and show you everything we've been doing around our house!
