A few more days, and I'm headed back home.
I've been keeping an eye on things from a distance...
Everything is fine, but the house does look lonely.
After I get back home and settled in, I gotta hit the ground
running again. Winter is just around the corner.
Yippee!... Not :/
That does mean, a few things on the to do list have to be taken care of asap. For one, I need a back porch. I'll be honest though, as far as moving stuff in, boob height access has made things a little simpler. No steps to climb, just a willing helper on the inside grabbing things. I would like better access over the snowy months though. I won't fret over it if I don't have time to complete it before the white stuff comes in, but I'll give it a shot.
All I need back there is 4' x 4' with the steps going along the house. Someone with experience would have it done in a few hours I'm sure. I'll have to give myself a few days with my limited experience. I did build the front porch all by myself ~ grin. And I think it turned out pretty good. I still have to board up the sides to hide the framing, but that can wait. Here's a night time glimpse of it...
Not bad for a first attempt, eh ;-)

Jack brought up the story I wrote a few years ago, about flying with my father in his plane. I had to read it again.
That "moment in time" is definitely one of my favorite.
My Dad's Plane (one of 'em)
This is the picture I have on my sidebar, so it's not very clear.
I have more at home I could post, but since I'm not there for a while,
I had to settle for this one ;-)

I took this picture back in June, a few days after starting excavation with my backhoe guy. There were a lot of deer tracks too, but this guy was the biggest critter to visit that night. I set up a trail cam after that, no luck yet. I'll be sure to share when I do get a few good pics out of it.
And yes, that's my big ol' steel toe rubber boot you see there.
...My Woodlot Slippers ;-)

~ View from the Backwoods ~
You guys gotta know I wouldn't give it all away at once.
Where's the fun in that... ;-)
I can actually see all 4 of my buildings in this pic :P
Workshop, House, Storage Shed, and the infamous Still Shack.
A little history & links below, if you're interested.

Someone once told me : "On se fait le cadeau d'une vie"
...loosely translated: "Give yourself the Gift of Life"
It kinda stuck with me, and helped me push through a very difficult chapter, helping me realize what I did want out of life. I'm in a better place now, and feel I need to dot a few i's were the blog is concerned.
I kinda put My World on the backburner lately,
all the while knowing I couldn't stay away
for too long.
