Yes, I'm still alive.
Not carried away by a flock of passenger pigeons.
No computer failures, illnesses or life crises.
I've thought about the blog almost every day,
but never kicked myself into gear sit down and write.
We've had great fun with company (more on that in a later post),
started riding the horses again after a nine month hiatus
and of course are still dragging along with trying to get the house completed.
Two weeks ago we popped the cork on a bottle of champagne
and celebrated with friends Barb and Rich
with a feast beside the outdoor fireplace.
All you suffering Louisianans notice that we're wearing light sweaters in May!! Hoorah!
So other than the glorious weather,
what were we celebrating?
We finally got approved for our Certificate of Occupancy!
Yes, we've been "illegally" living in the house since the first of the year.
Do you think it took long enough to get our CO?
Almost exactly two years after construction began
and 5 months after we moved out of the horse trailer and into the house.
We've still got loads to do to actually get the house completed
but according to the powers that be,
we're in a livable house!
Things move slowly here in Rockbridge County. :)
