Update on the day….

Well, sheets got changed and washed. Floors got mopped and vacuumed. Half of the bathroom got cleaned, and some laundry was washed and folded. So housework, check.

Mostly we spent the day, giddy with excitement, as the house arrived, piece by piece, every 2 hours. And we would take new rounds of photos, and upload and update the house website. SO that was a lot of fun, and really, we almost feel emotionally spent.

Included in the watching for the house was a long hike down the road to see the house come down a hill. All blogged at  This New House.

The meal for the middle son has gone ahead. He is having blackberry ripple cheesecake for dessert. Recipe here at Mennonite Girls Can Cook. Love this blog!) It took all morning to get it right.. I had to make the sugar syrup 3 times and botched one batch of eggwhites  in the process… my candy thermometer is decidedly off. But in the end, it got into the freezer. We are also having mashed potatoes, and this recipe for Cornish Game hens… remember, the birthday child gets to choose what he wants, and this was the request from the middle son.

I leave you with a few pictures. It may be awhile before I am back again…tomorrow I start back to work, and of course, there is the house excitement. So, be sure to check back in… when you have time.

Thanks for sharing the summer with me and for sharing the house excitement!

One thought on “Update on the day….

  1. The house progress is amazing. I have never seen a house in parts like that before.

    When you have the time you can email me your address so when the doll is finished I can post her over. I can’t imagine that she will be ready before the end of next week.

    Enjoy the house doings.
