Our internet satelite is now INSIDE my new mudroom. And, apparently, the satelite doesn't like trying to do its thing through wood. So, until we can get the satelite mounted in a new location and re-aimed (which will likely take a sweet forever, given the satelite company's past response times), I'll be offline. Of course, I'll snag some Wi-Fi when and where I can, but it probably won't be often for a while.
In the meantime, you can just imagine all the nailing, sawing, roofing, siding, retaining wall building, and such that is and will be going on around here. At least we've had our first frost and most of the gardening work is done!
