Oct.16…. A this and that catch up…

Sept was a busy month with picking jewelweed and making it into soap to treat our poison ivy rashes.

There was also three weddings that we attended. The first wedding was in Pa ,held at a wedding barn. It was beautiful!

We grilled the beef brisket for this wedding. We grilled the meat in Ga on our big grill then packed the wrapped brisket in three large coolers . We left late Friday evening ,arriving in time Sat morning to the reception for slicing the brisket and putting in it cookers to keep warm.

Then we went to Md to attend two wedding ,one on a Friday a niece on hubby’s side,on Saturday a nephew on my side.

We left Thursday evening to cross the Chesapeake bay bridge tunnel,for Hurricane Ian was kicking up some winds causing an alert there. We cross safely late that night with a sigh of relief.

We had a lovely weekend ,that quickly came to an end.

Hubby loaded up some door sections from his brothers business,that he have ordered for a job to do that week. Off we headed for home never once thinking that Hurricane Ian had a surprise ahead for us.

We arrived at the bridge around 3:00 pm Monday,to be told we couldn’t cross for there was an alert 2 , that meant no vehicle carrying cargo in the back of pickups allowed on the bridge. Winds were not to subside until morning. We then decided that waiting in the truck all night was not our cup of tea, we promptly find a hotel,relaxing the rest of the evening,getting a good nights sleep ,had a good breakfast in the morning . we were on our way back to cross the bridge by 7:30 am with no problems. Here a photo of the waves.

Old house on the hill

Remember this old house ? It is here in Tennessee, nestled in the hills,it is also in need of some care. It was left go for quite a few years,with windows shot out, trash left inside…(and outside), and a small fire damage where the wood stove was.

Floor damage

We are going to gut the house down to the frame and outside wall. The main structure of the house is good, we still are pulling up the old flooring to be sure the floor foundation is fine. Here’s some more of the mess we are making.

Trashy kitchen
Now we need to get some dumpsters to load all this mess into.

Some random photos from Ga and Tennessee.

Our little camper set up while we work on the old house. At one time it

looked like this…

Until the next update in my small world… Take Care!

    1. I did enjoy that good nights rest! Progress will be slower until we can get up here in the springtime,that is when our year will be up for helping the new owner take over the business.

  1. Fun reading your catching with a little of this and that 🙂 That was some barn for weddings, I imagining what it looked like on the inside. (I can taste that brisket) Despite the circumstances of Ian – I bet that nights sleep was a lovely welcomed surprise after your busy travels and events. I remember the little house and am excited to see the progress.

    1. I wished I’d of thought to take pictures but we were so busy, then when the crowd arrived there wasn’t a good shot of the inside. That night sleep was lovely! Traveling the next day was much nicer.🙂 it is exciting dreaming of what this little old house could become.

  2. Wow! You have had a lot of adventures lately, what with Hurricane Ian, a wedding, moving … Can’t wait to see how the renovation comes along. Did you ever post the finished renovation of the small building across the street from your old home? Does your daughter live there?
