Sky watch Friday #2

Busy week and not much time to post. Took the dogs in to the vet today. Max had a growth on his gum removed and Teddy got "fixed", and his claws were trimmed. He's been destroying the floors. He also got his rattlesnake vaccine, as that's a real problem out here.
Here's a view of the next door horseranch at sunset. Check out Skywatch Friday for more skies.

Max and Teddy Explore








I had an all day conference today. When I got home, the dogs were eager to explore. Unfortunately, they need supervision as they have discovered the joys of rolling in horse poop. Baths 3 days in a row now.

We're In!


We are finally in and actually sleeping in the new house! What an odyssey! We had moved some furniture in for preliminaries. On Easter eve, the movers came again and we had most of the remaining large stuff transported. It took nine hours and we filled the truck, which is amazing to me since there is still a lot of stuff in the old house. I've been stopping by after work and loading up the SUV. I've also had to begin maintenance yard work at the old place to keep it up for when we finally get it back on the market. There has been continued work, and we had to do additional appliance and cabinet install. Lori and I have been doing a lot of dust up and clean up.
Mom and Dad came and stayed for a week and sure kept busy. Dad took some of the scrap pine we had for the ceiling and made a floor for a downstairs basement closet where the concrete wasn't finished. We worked on a gutter that was knocked down (already) by a very heavy snow that we had. It was very heavy snow and there was a large drift over the gutter so I'm not too concerned about the others giving out.
So far, no major failures and things seem to be working the way that they are supposed to. I haven't been able to keep up with this site given the new and old house maintenance and work. A few photos for now at Flickr.
