Our Tennessee Neighbors...It's Official

Our dear friends, Mike and Pam, have finally moved here from New York.  They've been planning their move south for the last several years and retirement has finally happened.  I called them on the phone and said, "Howdy neighbors!"  I stopped by to say hello and they're already working on their first project...a back deck. The weather couldn't have been nicer for building. Welcome to Tennessee!

Back to TTU

Ethan left back to TTU Friday morning, but first stopped in Gatlinburg, meeting his buddies from school for a day of skiing.  I'm sure he had a blast. He left refreshed, ready for another semester.  It was so nice having him home these past couple of weeks. We love you!

Metal Roof For The Garage

Scott and Ethan have been working off and on this past week putting on a new metal roof for the garage.  The metal sheets are slick when wet and the only mishap was Scott falling off the roof on the back side, slipping before he knew it. Thank goodness it was on the back side of the garage where it was only an eight foot drop and Ethan was there to break the fall. He was okay, but made my heart skip a beat watching it.  Thank you Lord for your protection! Scott still needs to do the trim and ridge work and then onto the house, hopefully before spring.

Night Skiing At Sugar Mountain

Scott, Randy and Ethan headed to the slopes of Sugar Mountain, NC to do some night skiing and snowboarding with Scott's co-workers. They had a blast and Scott even took pictures for me!  They got home around 1:00 am to a Cloud Creek that was pitch black due to a power outage...I was nestled warm under the covers.
