    Super D has been at it again!  He built us a table and shelves for the trailer.  This has really helped to get things in order and give us a place to eat indoors.  I love the new space and getting things up off the floor. 
I love how this frames the window and the top self extends the whole side of the trailer.

Sassafras trying it out mid build.  See all the stuff I was trying to get off the floor. :)

         So did you wonder how I do laundry with out running water?  Well, right now we go to the laundry mat.  But right now it usually costs us under $10 to wash everything about every week or two but if we dried the clothes there it would more than double that!  So we bring home the wet clothes and line dry everything.  The first time we did this we winged it and Super D ran a couple lines for me.  I don't think we realized how much we had to hang!

      That is actually a the volleyball net we set up, plus lines to the four wheeler and from the trailer over.   We have since put up a nice long line that zigzags through the trees.  
     Next on the list for upgrades is to keep clearing out the woods a bit.  (Most of that work was halted due to extreme heat!) And hopefully a well soon.  Still pricing them out and figuring out the best way to go about it.  Super D is also wanting to get  a couple more solar panels built too.  Again extreme heat has really slowed us down.  But we got some glorious rain the other night and it has cooled slightly.  Amazing how 90 degrees feels nice after weeks of 100 + temps.

The Lake

  Well, these pictures are over a month old but too fun not to share. :)  We went to Bull Shoals lake to go boating and tubing with a friend of Aunt S.  It was a great day and inspired dreams of having our own boat to do fun family outings.  We all had a blast.  There are several lakes close to us and they are all seem to be connected by the rivers.  Very big lakes that you could easily get lost on!  We had fun swimming off the dock and watching the views.  This land still takes my breath away daily!

Super D and Sugarbug with our neice and nephew.

The girl cousins get to go first.

I ride with our nephew.  Lots of fun.

Me and Aunt S flying.

 Of course no tubing trip is complete with out someone falling off!  At least my Sister-in-law waved to me :)
