Local milk

I have always wanted to buy milk from a local dairy in glass bottles. Always! And now we can. Twin Brooks Creamery is located in Lynden and they sell milk at our grocery. They aren't certified organic but they are really close. I chatted with someone that works that and the main "unorganic" thing they do is use antibiotics if a cow is sick. I'm okay with that. SO, if you live in Bellingham check them out.

We started putting up drywall this weekend, yeah! The ceilings are pretty much done thanks to the super handy drywall lifter. I'm sure it has a more technical name, but.....whatever. Next, the walls!
Also, note the wide angle lens. Ian got a new camera for work and I got to try it out. I love it.
Also note the insulation! Two of the rooms are insulated and the rest will be finished soon. The insulation on the ceiling is brown because it's 80% recycled, which I think is pretty great.

A new fire pit!

We've been doing alot of indoor projects lately. Which, while completely necessary, are not as fun for me as outdoor projects. So this weekend Toby and I made a fire pit for our house warming party. We used rocks that were in the deep recesses of a blackberry bramble behind the house. The pit turned out great and later that evening we got to use it. Our house warming party was fun, relaxing and we burned a bunch of wood from the scrap pile!

Went skiing!

What better way to celebrate the first day of November than to go skiing?

It was a beautiful day. The weather was perfect. It was warm and sunny with blue skies. The snow was great! Sure it was icy in a few spots, but really it's November! Overall it was a fabulous day and I can't wait to get out again.
