Change is happening all around us.
Far Guy was quite upset that his childhood home was being messed with. One day we drove by and there were huge piles of dirt in the yard. It was hard to tell what they were doing…moving the whole house? Or putting a new basement underneath it?
I drove by yesterday and took a photo…it is a new basement.
The Motel in Osage used to be called Whistling Pines. Henry Holland built it back in the 1930’s. There was a motel and a house on the property, it has always been painted yellow with brown trim. Recently they painted it with some bargain mix your own color paint.
It is apartments now…no longer a motel. It was for sale a long time ago and we almost bought it. The house which is back in the trees had Henry Holland’s signature knotty pine walls with beautiful custom trim.
I took this photo yesterday…that color is real different. I don’t care for it…it isn’t yellow.
Yesterday I had lunch with my long time friend Susan, we had lunch at 3rd Street Market and then shopped at the Thrift Store and Linda’s Recycled Goods. I am the last of the big spenders with a 25 cent purchase for a piece of glass that has a hairline crack but will make a glass flower…someday! We had a really nice visit!
I came home and joined Far Guy woodcarving the Christmas ornaments. We now have 56 completely done…we are nearing the home stretch. We figure it takes about three hours to make one ornament from start to finish…we may time the whole process for one ornament before we are done.
