Here we are in the last half of October. The weather continues to play the hot/cold game. We have had a hard frost just a couple of days ago and winter is breathing down our necks. Normally, I look forward to winter, but this year, I am dreading it. I don't like being cold and last winter I don't think I was ever warm except when I went to someone's home that had a woodstove.
My home needs insulation in the worse way, but when I got a quote on the insulation necessary to stop the scratching in the walls, I about fell out of my chair. $6,000 for the spray in foam insulation that eliminates bugs and all. The problem is that because I'm in an existing home, the dry wall will need to be removed. So I'm thinking that $6,000 will be more like $10,000. I don't have either amount so I've dismissed that idea and will just need to keep knitting, baking, and snuggling under the covers with layers of dog and cat.
I so need more time before winter gets here. I've got to get a shelter of some sort put up for my alpaca girls. I have some lumber, but have no clue what to do with it. Where do I go from here?
I need to get started relocating stock tanks and running extension cords for the tank de-icers so that I'm not doing it in the freezing cold. From the looks of the weather projection, next week looks like a great week to do that.
Well, I need to get off here as I have to get ready for work. Tomorrow I work an 8 hour shift. That will be awesome as I could sure use the extra income even though it will only be $40 more. Until next time....Bye!
