Under Construction

As you can see, I took a week off from work (and blogging) to help DH build the new chicken/garden shed. Wow - - it was a lot more work than I had anticipated...imagine that! In four days, we got the floor down, walls up, roof on, doors & windows set, shingles, paint and part of the siding on. Yes, siding. It is leftover from the house.

The shed is 12' x 8' with a wall in between (half for the chickens, half for garden stuff).

Next, we need to schedule the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting!

We also took a couple days to go down to Des Moines to stay at the Adventureland Inn. DD's skin is still puckered up from all the swimming she did. We stopped at the Woodsmith Store out by Living History Farms and took in the Home & Garden Show. It was a nice little getaway.
Heading to Decorah to the Silos & Smokestacks Conference at the Hotel Winneshiek. Very excited!

Hey! You were in my neck of the woods! And oddly enough, I'm going to Decorah this weekend for a wedding! Talk about a co-inky-dink! How'd you like your stay at Adventure Land Inn?

Adventureland Inn during Boys State Basketball Tournament time is not exactly a "romantic getaway." But DD had a blast and we enjoyed the mini-getaway. The hotel rooms could really use a little update, though. I swear they have the same bedspreads as they did 25 years ago when I stayed there as a kid!
