Today I pulled up plastic off the floor. The tape has been Kilzed, textured and painted. Peeling it up was tedious. I unwrapped blue tape off door knobs. Put a second coat of paint on doors. Peeled tape and plastic off windows. Living room and kitchen still have plastic on floors. I’ll peel it up tomorrow.

I laid out quarter round in the bedrooms. When I took it up, I numbered each piece, taped in a bundle and labeled what room it was. I drew arrows for what direction it went.

I have the quarter round laid out, just needs to be fitted and brad nailed.

It’s STORMING! Lightening, thunder and blowing hard RAIN!!!! Been raining hard for 45 minutes. Power is off. Wish I knew where the Tac lights are. I got a wind up light. I don’t care, it’s RAINING! I hope it’s raining at the farm.

We got more rain last night, a soft soaking rain. Just watched Tyler weather forecast on my phone, since Direct TV saw fit to take Tyler channels away and give me Houston news channels. If you want to get depressed, Houston news is the place to go. Multiple shootings, stabbings, drive by and murders daily. WHY do I want to watch that? I don’t. Plus the Houston weather reports never even show Trinity county. Phooey on Houston channels.

Tyler weather is predicting up to 4” of rain through Thursday. The road to the farm will be slush. Only drawback to the farm, crappy country road. Oh well. I’m trying to get moved now and build pens and shelters for sheep so I can move them. Not complaining about the rain, we desperately need it. It just makes it a little more difficult.

I didn’t even go to the farm yesterday, was too tired. Went to Lufkin, did some errands. I’m recharged and ready to work outside today, weather permitting.

It's everywhere! Don't understand why ... So senseless. This morning they reported two incidents, just few miles apart. 3 dead and 2 more injured in one. 2 dead in another. :idunno :rant. What ever happened to break your nose fist fights? 🤔☹️

When we moved out to Wyoming we signed up for DirectTV. After the "sigh-on" deals ended and they upped our bill by $100, I called to cancel. She wanted to know why and I said because we don't watch it enough to make the cost of it acceptable. Besides, I live in Wyoming and I can't get any local news channels to check on weather and such. She said I could get NEW YORK for my local channel. In what universe is New York considered local for Cheyenne? I asked if they had anything local for Denver Colorado, as that might be close enough for weather. She said let me see - oh, you can get New York. I said "wrong side of the country" so she then she said I could get LA. Ah, no thanks...

@Baymule The work you are doing in the house is turning out beautifully!
Hope you get moved soon and the rain greens up those pastures.
Thank you! Moving some stuff tomorrow. Chris is bringing his brad nailer for the quarter round. Going to put in the new toilet and take the old one out of the other bathroom. Then I’ll get that bathroom Kilzed, textured and painted. If have time, I’ll get him to put blinds back up. They are brown and will look ugly, but I need something now.

Today I worked on putting wire up at the front gate to close off a couple of open places. The other place that needs closing up, I have the wire there, taking hog rings to secure the wire. There is an enormous tree in a corner that has all kinds of net wire and barbed wire grown into it. I cut away the wire and cleaned up the area. I should get a picture. There is a hackberry tree growing up against this giant oak, with a railroad cross tie (covered in all the wire) between the two trees.

I’m going to go hitch up the stock trailer and pull it up front. Moving starts tomorrow! I’d start loading stuff, but it could rain overnight.
