We have transferred a number of projects from the to do list to the completed list. The number of completed tasks now is much longer than the other. What a joy! I would guesstimate that we are eighty-five to ninety percent complete.
John took the old stove out and we are now ready for the new one to be delivered and installed! This will complete the installation of all new, stainless appliances in a new and improved kitchen. Woo- hoo! Each step seems like another mile marker passed on this journey.
As John worked in the kitchen, I worked with our hired worker and we started and finished cleaning the large barn. This barn was so much easier due to the fact that this was the home for our herd of Llamas. We had started and finished with the barn within two hours.
As I look back at our journey last year, I have memories of the Grand Canyon. The header photo was taken at one of the viewing spots. We spent two days touring and exploring. The altitude there was making it very hard for John to breathe, that most of our exploration was achieved by driving and looking.
If we go again, we will plan to spend a week or so there in order for John's lungs to adjust to the altitude. Then we will be able to do more exploration on foot.
John and Oliver enjoyed the view. And the views are magnificent! It was a nice, sunny day that made the cooler temperatures easier to withstand.
We stayed at the campgrounds there at the park. There were about six RVs and Motorhomes in the campgrounds so each of us had our "space." I would not like to stay there during high tourist season. I would feel like a sardine packaged. Looking out my window to see another window is not our idea of travel. The song "Don't fence me in" just popped into my mind! "Give me land, lots of land....don't fence me in!" After living in the country, having someone close gives me the shivers!
Well, it's time to get back to working on the fifteen percent that needs to be completed in order to put the house on the market. One lesson we have learned while working on the eighty five percent is that we cannot make a house that is twenty five years old to be new construction! We must stop someplace or we will be remodeling forever!
Here is looking forward to the rest of the journey! God bless you on yours.
