Next step for the fireplace is to choose a mantel.

In the small town of Valley Mills, TX, between here and my new place on Highway 6, there's a sawmill that cuts decorative mantels out of native woods--mesquite, cedar, oak, whatever falls off trees. I stopped once for a quick look, and there's some beautiful wood in there. Now I know the length I need, so the next stop will be for serious shopping.

The fireplace surround will be made of the same stone as the exterior of the house, and I think a native wood mantel will look great with that.

A native wood mantle sounds gorgeous, and something that will make you smile and warm your heart every time you look at it.

Dougís daughter had a large, rectangular table made of native wood for their new house, and it is not only beautiful but so very unique, one of a kind.

Your dream home, coming true.

I had to look up Austin stone...is this your color?

Gerard and Laura will be in today, and we’re off to Moraine View tomorrow til Sunday.

I have the Interstate back, after its roof sealing, and it looks quite nice....hopefully this will protect it for years to come, and I really like this independent shop just a mile or so from me.

I need a knowledgeable auto person, someone I can learn to trust, and an individual with their own business may prove to be a much better option than “employees”.

Going to have them at least annually take a good look at everything, tho I don’t believe they can do any service as their bays are not large enough. And, that’s okay, as I have Peterbilt for that.

I’ve ordered a new AC cover, as the original one has a couple of cracks in it, and they are going to put it on for me after I pick it up next week...Airstream of Chicago sold me one from their Dometic stock, and told me how to paint it as they do, with cans of silver spray paint.

Too large to ship, I will make a run to Naperville to get it on Monday and stop at Trader Joe’s on the way back...any excuse for TJ’s.

Weather has cooled off a bit, and we’re looking at nice weather for the weekend.

Maggie

Good move. Barring accidents with low-hanging tree limbs, most air conditioning shrouds give up the ghost due to UV degradation. Painting the shroud will do more to preserve it than anything else you could do, because painting provides UV protection.

Yep, that's it.

I agree completely.

Nearly perfect weather at Moraine View this weekend, with just a few sprinkles Saturday and no serious rain until last night.

We had very mild temps, til this morning when it was 49 degrees, windy, and spitting rain which felt like it could turn to snow.

It will soon be time for the first fire in the woodstove of the season...

My son and his boys settled into a lakeside site vacated by someone who had to cancel, and it was perfect for them...but that their tent was pitched at the apparent access point for the plentiful geese in the area.

The first night, much geese activity all night long, in and out of the water and quacking loudly as geese do, but last nights storm kept the geese away and everyone got a much better nights sleep.

I am very proud of my not-an-outdoorsman son, who cooked over an open fire, took the boys fishing and out on the lake in kayaks...getting it all done, and well, and making a wonderful weekend for his boys.

This was I believe the third time they had been out with the tent, and I provided only minimal, adjunct services.

The Interstate goes to the body shop for a couple of small garf repairs this week , and next we will hopefully take a few last days out before winterizing and putting the baby to bed for a couple of months.

Iím ready for serious fall weather...

Maggie

I love this...I need it poster-sized, and someplace where I can read it every day.
