This little teeny tiny 8 x 10 room is our "office". You see the closet which does not have a door on it.
The "organizer" shelf that holds all my scrapbooking supplies and photos.
(not all, but the supplies at least) and a file drawer which we don't even use anymore.
I have come up with a Plan.
I'm going to move the scrapbooking stuff into the big bedroom (for now) because I hope to work on some books over the winter. If not... it's going to be banished to the little Derksen building.
I'm moving the loveseat in here, against the wall out of view to your right... and the file drawer is being pitched. We'll put the second tv on the wall to the right of the window, or on a table there.
This is going to be the "tv room" cum "computer room". Keith has to sit on the end of the bed right now if he wants to watch anything but what I am watching... and he has longed for a special place where he could be comfortable.
I think the big chair is going... but the computer, just out of sight to the left, is staying. We'll have to see if it all fits, but I think if the shelves are out, there will be room for the loveseat. Then I'm going to have to find a way for Abby to still see out of the window in the living room where the loveseat sits now, as she and Gertie used it to see Daddy coming in the gate every night.
I'll wait until later this week to start moving things, as I have Paiton all day tomorrow, the youngest granddaughter on my side.
Nancy Thellman, if you are reading this... I am SO SORRY.
So is Lilly, I'm sure. Deep down.
Neighbor Kathy's front porch.
Mushrooms? In November? Really?
The henspa flock is still working the garden beds for me, as well as the compost heaps. I can see getting them out during gardening season next year is going to take some thinking... but I do want to let them out for an hour or so a day. Right now, I turn them out at 4, when I put the goats up, and Lilly in.
This big guy... he has done a little better these last few days since I doubled his pain meds. Every morning, as long as we have had him, he has come out on the porch and barked. Here he is doing it this morning... he barked at the llamas for four years, and has barked at the goats since we got the first two in May. It's just a Ranger thing.
To his right, there is a farmhouse table with an enamel top that I bought at a sale over the weekend. I have a purpose for it. I'm not telling.
(It's going into the storage building right now to be kept nice and clean before goats decide to use it).
Hmmm. This is the south end of a west-moving Peacock that was in the road as I passed by our neighbor's, Roxanne at Screamin' Oaks Dairy. There were two out there.
I could not get them to stop for a second.
I wanted to show you this because every day on Facebook I get "Warbler Calls" which is HERE.
It features pictures of beautiful birds, and common birds, taken by professional and amateur photographers, and it is really an interesting post daily. I wanted to let you all know about it if you had never heard of it.
I had to go to the bank this morning, and ran into True Value to get another hose nozzle... (don't ask, Keith). As long as I was there, I ran into Goodwill for a minute.
My gosh, folks.
This beautiful old organ...I would buy it just to save it!
Detail of the keyboard, and if you biggify, you will see that the stops are labeled with their "sounds".
If you look back at the first picture, there is a pedestal on either side of the organ... I am guessing these were for lanterns of some kind... or candles.
I would buy it just to take care of it, or donate it.
I just may. I did try the lid, and it still slid smoothly down over the keyboard, so some one loved this organ.
And now, friends, I must go out and do some chores here at our own little place, and think about the music that must have delighted people who heard this organ in it's prime.
