It's been a quiet few days around here except for the rain on the roof. Both horses looked tender after their trim on Friday, and the weather has not inspired me to do much training. Obviously I need get building that 70 X 140 indoor arena, but my ambitions were more humble this weekend.
David and I bought Farcical Farm in January 2007, and we officially moved in April. The house, known fondly as "The Blue Beast" was in a sad state due to years of severe neglect (see above). In August 2007 we enthusiastically entered Reno Hell, and by December we were stuck in Reno Limbo -- that familiar state where everything is functional but nothing is finished. Phase II (of two) starts sometime next month, and the threat of a visit from our contractor inspired us to finish some lingering Phase I projects indoors while it poured with rain outdoors. We now have two nice coat racks in the mud room (made from leftover oak countertop) and a shelf around the half wall in the kitchen (see below). At this rate we will enter Reno Heaven sometime in 2019.
