Yesterday, when I cried

my heart out about Kris, that really was not what I meant to do.  I sat down to write about something entirely different and that is what came.
Actually, my intention was to show you pictures of our property.  We are so excited to have purchased.  This shot is of the river.  Entiat River in Eastern Washington.  We bought close to 8 acres.  Both sides of the river.
This shot is across the river.  Currently the river is too high for us to cross it.  There is no bridge. During the summer it will be an easy wade across.  Our property goes up into those trees.  Not sure how far though since we can't get across yet.  It is OK though, we wanted that part just for the kids to go exploring.
This mountain shot is taken from our property.  It is looking further up the valley.  Not sure of it's name yet.
We spent a night two weeks ago.  I am here to tell you, never again!! Not until it warms up or we have a cabin built.  It was SOOOOOOOOO cold.  Down in the 30's.  Two pair of pajamas, wool socks and a coat on.  As well as sleeping bag and down comforter over us.  Not only was it cold, but I had two panic attacks during the night. Closed into a tiny tent is not my idea of comfort.
Pepper loved it though.  She ran and ran and ran.  She is over on the neighbor property in this picture.  We don't have grass yet.
These geese were on the neighbors property too.  We think they may have a nest there. They floated down river and then flew back up about 1/2 hour later.
Across the river again.  I was watching the deer over there.
Stan is walking the road side of the property.  Checking where we might put a cabin.
Platform we built down near the river. It is to sleep on until there is a cabin.  If it warms up enough, I will actually take a bed over there and put it on the platform.  I am too old to sleep on the ground~~~~~ever again.
We are looking forward to lots of fun hours over there.  Perhaps some day moving onto the property permanently.

I am so glad your back and posting once again. Your new property looks and sounds great. Hope you get that cabin built fast and that you enjoy every minute of your new place. Havea blessed day.. Madeline

Oh lovely. Each of your pictures show such promise. It is a tad bit too chilly to be tent sleeping right now. The platform is a great idea. Up off of the cold ground. I'm envious of your property and I know That's not a good emotion. :-). Have fun, planning and. Building.
