Hunter Orange

Since today is the first offical day of hunting season and we can't find a dog vest to fit Nellie, we have gone the route of a people vest. This used to be Johns, but it seems to fit her like a glove! The images are a little foggy because my camera was cold and fogged up (I had left it in the car).... Also, I caught Nellie in the act of harassing Nike the cat. Poor kitty.

Starks house

Here are a few pictures of another home finished this week. It is a small ranch, but the live edge siding really sets it apart.

Swimming in October!

It was a beautiful day yesterday, mid 70's or so. A beautiful, although early (6:00 ish!!!) sunset and Nellie goes for a swim in the lake...

Here are a few pictures of a house we recently completed.

Nellie Chronicles

Here is a big Nellie update. At last weigh in, about 2 weeks ago now, she was 115lbs, she is almost 9 months old. Her latest adventure, reflected in the photos above:
1. hanging out at camp
2. getting a new hunter orange vest. We got the biggest one they had, an XL and instead of fitting around her back and mid section like it should, instead she has to wear it like a kercheif.
3. Going nuts over a birthday card John got for his sister V. This card made cat meow's when opened, which excites Nellie terribly.
4. Dogs aren't supposed to eat grapes but for some reason we had trouble getting Nellie away from the Concord grape arbor. Emily and I picked them but not without some 'help' from Nellie.
5. Although she is clearly jammed into the front seat of the car, she does not care to sit in back where there is more room. So, instead, she is either smushed in like this or actually sitting in the seat like a tall hairy human being.

Cider, cider & MORE cider

A few pictures from last weekends cider making event. Will, Kristen, Zack & Keena joined in on the fun. Will climbed several trees and sacrificed a pair of pants in this endevor, and I don't know about everyone else but I was pretty sore the next day from my turns cranking the cider press! Currently, ths cider is fermenting away, awaiting the hard cider bottling party this comig weekend.

Lastly, Nellie seems to have a real fondness for eating gords. Huh.
