I've been "dealing" with a few things lately... aren't we all :/
I will find Light at the end of this tunnel,
even if I have to Spark the Blaze myself !!
With that said, Life goes on...
& My Personal Therapist ;-)
I went over to my daughter's country home the other day
and went to town on their wood pile.
Still one of the best ways I know to clear my head.

Just thought I would share, this is the view from my work
this morning. Very relaxing, for a minute.
That purty scene across the river is US Territory. I'd wave,
but you might not see me through that thick fog ;-)

Good News: I am home, safe and sound.
Bad News: A setback has put a damper on my plans....
It seems the builder I was scheduled to work with decided to temporarily drop a few smaller clients to take on a bigger contract. That means that instead of having my house ready for delivery by October, they want to deliver in December.
I live in Canada !! That's not feasible !!!
So reluctantly, I will reschedule my project for the spring.
I did get quotes from other builders, hoping to still pull off my plans, but of course, they were more expensive. Honestly, I'm kinda glad they were, because I still prefer the work of my original builder.
I have to look a it in a good light. More time to tweak my plans, which I like. And a few extra weeks to work on felling the rest of the trees that need to go before excavation (Part Deux) can begin. Between meetings, playing phone tag to reschedule my trades, and work, I've been pretty busy.
The extra 5 to 6 months of apartment bills kinda suck. Not what I expected. Such is life at times. I will have to work my butt off to compensate though. Fun times, I like to think that I still have things under control ;-)

Just a few more days to go, then I head back home. The clock is ticking, and I'm anxious, in a good way, to start building. I'll probably be scarce for a little while, but I will check in and post extra stuff too when I get an itch for it... ;-)

that I'd have over 7000 posts in My World
if I hadn't kicked it back over the last few years....
My bad ! :/
But I think the following is more important....

Just got back from a little nature walk.
I'm not holding it close to the camera, it's actually on my laptop. Freakin' thing is almost 12 inches from the tip to the end of the stem. Y'all have mutant trees out here ;-)

Almost ready to hit the road...
But first, I feel like gloating a little...
This "contracting" business was new territory for me,
but I did it, up to this point anyways.
Got all my ducks lined up and ready to go,
for a post-vacation build.
See you in a few days...
when I land, that is ;-)

So many moving parts to this thing we call LIFE. Mine has changed in more ways then I can count over the past couple years. Whether that be my blog, my personal life, or my work. I'm not wanting to go in much detail about these changes on this post, I mostly wanna bring up a specific Clusterfuck I've had to deal with this week....
I guess a little buildup is still needed... Most of you know I have my own little Woodlot since March 2015, and that I have done some work on it before last winter set in. I haven't shared many specific, my apologies for that, I hope to rectify that in the near future. Movin' on...

~ Taking a few minutes to check in ~
There's a few reasons why I've been MIA lately.
My daughter just got done her first year of University. She worked very hard
and I am very proud of her. So between exams and moving back home,
things have been kinda hectic around here.
But that's not even the biggest "event"....
She's about to get married !!!
Like next weekend....
~ gulp ~
