This Time Last Year

There was much activity on the farm at this time last year. As I mentioned in a previous post, the work started the first week of December, the sections of the house arrived the second week and we were able to begin moving in on December 20th.

Digging and installing water lines to the well house

Neat photos! I've been trying to take photos of every phase of what we're doing on our property. That a really great looking modular! Cool interior!

I love your cow and barn photo! The colors and drama are just right

I also understand, very much, your goat story, only ours was with a bull this year.

Thanks CMouse, around here photos are the only way that the better half and can see the step by step activities with being on the road all the time.
I am hoping to put a scrap book together with the before/after phases of the farm.

Thanks Linda,
Don't know how you handle the cattle. Way too big for me.
