I was so excited last night to be able to see lights on in our log home! I hope you are able to see both buildings in the dark from where you are.
Isabel and I picked the last of the tomatoes from the garden and canned them. This would have been very sad without the help of a 4-year-old. She decided to do her own canning as well. She even picked her own produce for her "cans"! :) She also reminded me through the hours we spent together picking , washing, and canning that this means Christmas is coming and the snow will be here in a little while. While the end of the season harvesting began by feeling like saying goodbye to a friend, it ended with a sense of anticipation for what lies ahead.
Air conditioning and heat have now been added to our home although right now it has been nice enough to open a window during the day and close them at night. There are many moments during the day that I wish we could somehow clone Kris temporarily! He has so many little details to attend to and we are only able to clean up sawdust, move boards, and wait.
