This last fall I found some nice pieces at garage sales.

I am in the process of stripping them down. One is a small table, and the other piece is a shelf.

They don't have any paint on them. I am just working my way thru the poly and stain down to the bare wood.

It's almost like a hunt. To see what the wood looks like naked. LOL!

Kat that sounds awesome. You should take before and after pics on projects like that and share them here!

Jimininy, LOL! You always make me laugh! Oh no, my cat was up on the table in front of my computer and I was petting him. Now there is cat fur all over the keyboard. I use a big makeup blush brush to clean it off.

OMG, I'm still wide awake!

Cats are crazy animals. Mine likes to steal whatever seat I use in the house then acts offended when I come back to it!

LOL! Yup! Right now, mine is whining like crazy because I'm still up. Once I go to bed he calms down and falls right asleep. Well, usually. He is about 9 years old and has the energy level of a kitten.

Cat's rule ...

My cats are super tolerant !

If you get in their face ... they just grunt at you !

(No hiss no scratch! )

Hey everybody!

We made it


Earlier we let everyone know we were headed out to my moms house which is way way way out in the woods far from civilization. She offered us $100 to fall two trees, de-limb, chop em up for firewood and haul it back to the house. We still have to do the same with two other trees that are already down, but that's for next weekend.

When we were done she cooked us pork chops, pesto spinach raviolis, and roasted Brussels sprouts.

Oh yeah! And a mixed berry pie we just remembered we brought home.

Now I am learning that if I don't hurry up and finish this post and get Mrs. Shred a piece of that pie heated up in a bowl,Not a plate with vanilla ice cream on top then I will be missing out on dessert even more delicious than razzle berry pie and ice cream.........

Anyway we are really tired, I wanted to show all of the cool pics we captured today here is one or two for now,
. First this BadA woodstove/cookstove I figured we should install somewhere in the shed

....

As you can see, mamashred is busy splitting wood for our new fireplace and there is more on the way.

Now we can cook whatever we want

You have to be tough like Mamashred tho, she burnt herself countless times, feeding her family off of one of those.

First she would endure -20 below zero or less splitting the wood small enough for cooking (we called it biscuit wood) then dang near melt standing over the flames making sure dinner turned out good.

We tried for awhile to fix those pictures and make them display upright.

We should have been in bed hours ago so we gotta give up for now.

Sorry bout that


Goodnight all.

Good morning sunshines 🌞 or to shred and I, goodnight moons πŸŒ› Had a busy day and excited for you guys to see some neat pics! We wanted to add this beautiful wood stove to the shed. I can't wait to cook a feast on it for everyone!

This 1800 (yr) wood stove taught my sweet 3 yr boy and myself patience,and appreciation. I taught myself ( a girl from socal who has never seen snow before) how to cook on this beast, and fell in love with it !

Sometimes going out in -15 ,to split wood to come in and start a fire, maintain it till it's hot enough and finally cook some dang eggs could get draining! But the experience and countless memories we made as a family were priceless.

We don't have a wood stove for cooking or heat at the moment, but when we build our forever home in the future I will definitely have a wood stove to cook on and teach my little girl how to cook and love it 😊

Shred

Hey Mrs and Mr Shred! Looks like You guys had some fun! Awesome old cook stove! Very Cool!!

Oh, I found out a while back that when an image is posted and its not here the right way, just save the image from the page it's on here, use a photo prog to turn it the right way, (remember how it posted, and turn it the way it needs to be so it's right) then re-upload here and it should post correctly. I actually fixed them both using a free program called PhotoFiltre 7, (it's not misspelled) and the one with Mrs Shred uploaded here, but the other one was too large...? Any help You might need, don't hesitate to ask Me, or anyone here.

Timely, How many cats do you have? Throughout the years I have had one to three at a time. We usually had two, but there was always that one that seemed to find us and need love and a good home.
We just have Kya now our Siamese.

Shred, love the pics, even though I had to turn my head like the girl in the Exorcist movie to see them. LOL! The food sounded delicious!!!

MamaShred, I LOVE that antique wood stove! My friend and I saw a similar one in an Antique shop a couple of weeks ago and thought it was so cool!

Syx, Thanks, glad you enjoyed my story entry! I figured I waited long enough to make an entry. Wolf and the wildcat will be returning to the shed with the others soon. I have to remember to include Taylon, Night's love interest as no one knows what happened to him and if he survived the war or not. Your turn!
I just loved the dragon vids you left for us!!!!

Hiya Skiddy! How is the new place, your Mom and work? I miss hanging out with you at night. There is hardly anyone around at night in here anymore. The lurker monster got ahold of them and won't let go.

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!

Hi CC! What color will Syx's room be? You make me feel like I should be doing something, but went to bed soooo late and haven't been up very long, so I'll just sit here and have some coffee.

My bathroom has this nice robbins egg blue. I love it! It makes it bright and cheery. I also like seagreen though more a bluish than green, but it's Syx's room so I don't know if he wants bright or dark colors. There are cool shades of purples. In here we don't have a lot of windows so I prefer lighter colors, though two rooms have dark paneling.


As for stairs, you'd die if you saw how many Mark and I have to climb up and down. We live on the 3rd floor and there are even cement steps to get the landing before the porch steps then all the steps in the hallway. On grocery days I feel like I'm going to die! LOL Even our younger healthier friends can't stand climbing them. I know we would both be better off elsewhere, but this place is so perfect for us.
