i'm here, i promise!

I'm here, but oh so busy! I've been trying to sew...mostly unsuccessfully. We've been scrubbing mostly. The house was left very dirty, in fact I keep my barn cleaner than they kept their house. But, that is enough negativity.
We've got the 2nd floor where we're mostly living almost clean, just one room left to scrub vacuum, and wipe down.
Peter and I finished fencing in a new section of pasture, and a farmer neighbor offered to bale part of our field for $2 a bale! I'm super stocked about that, since hay prices are around $5 a bale out here.
Peter and his brother, Kurt, worked very hard and got an eyesore of an old antenna off the roof this week. I'll post pictures of that, and the crazy stunts they pulled to accomplish it later this week.
Our most exciting news is that we discovered we have our own little beach. Our property is bordered by a small river and a creek on two sides. Where the two water bodies intersect is a nice beach made up of ground up Goshen stone. The stone is very soft and the size of grains of sand, but black and gray. It also happens to be by a stand of trees. We eventually want to set up a picnic area, and groom the beach and deepen the water a bit as well. Photos of that to come as well. It's quite a bit past my bed time, so good night all!
