Hi everyone, it would seem that Winter is holding on here. Although the day temps. have been hovering around +40 to +50, the nights are still in the freezing range. The night temps are staying anywhere 0 to 14 degrees. So, the snow is not going away anytime real soon. The sun and heat has made walking very slippery. I still have to put a log or two in the stove to take off the chill. Now for my plans.
As soon as it warms up enough, I plan to paint and roof my town cabin. In the meantime, I am picking up stuff like eating utensils, dishes, frypans and so on for my remote cabin and enough dry and can foods for a month. I plan to take these things out there as soon as the lake is free of ice. I want to go out and set the small cabin up for use and spend 2 to 4 weeks cutting firewood for next Winter. The firewood is the most important thing right now. I think 2 to 4 weeks, I should have a good supply to start.
As I have said before, I have enough material to completely build and enclose a 16x16 cabin. Well, my plans have changed. I am going to add onto my small cabin and during the Winter, haul logs to my property and next year build a log cabin instead. It just came to me a few days ago when I was sitting on my deck in the sun at 50 degrees having an ice cold Corona [didn't have a lime] but, it tasted good anyway. Doing this would give me enough building material for other projects rather than buying new material or having to freight more in. Besides, I would rather have a log cabin anyway.
Since my last post, I haven't been doing to much, mostly sitting out in the sun and doing a bit of Spring cleaning. I'm hoping with my new plans, I will start getting more people to read my blog. I miss quite a few of those who were reading my posts when I started it. I know I haven't kept it as interesting. It will change soon. COME BACK EVERYONE.
I do really appreciate all of you who have stuck it out through the fun and the boring. Take care everyone.
