More Bunk

More Bunk

I thought a new title might add some flare to an already tired subject to blog about. Bunkie work and gardening. And canning.

The work has gone from outside to in. 3 windows added and a new patio door. New to us anyway. 2 of the windows and the patio door were free. The patio door has some fogging but we sealed it up and covered over things with privacy screening. Great stuff.

Wiring, insulation for 3/⁴ done and some vapour barrier installed ta boot. The rest was awaiting loft finalization..which we just knocked out. Went swell once we flattened the main log beam to make good square contact. More support and finishing is needed but smooth sailing from here on out..once we vent the propane exaust from the fridge. And install the woodstove. And finish the needlessly complicated 12v system. Been fun so far and not to bad a state for a twice snow collapsed shed. Yes, the first 2 did not sink into a swamp. This one is sure to stay up. My neighbor was by and works on metal buildings so I asked him his opinion of our construction job and sealing up of the metalwork around the windows and doors. He thought the structure would ‘…not budge before we die.’. A* has never been more happy.

Chow and Jam

No,  not the chow and jam dance moves..

We have not really done much canning and with the tractor and the potential for a proper cold room (and room/plans for a bigger garden) we wanted some practice..

Making a concerted effort to try to use what we produce..not that the grape vines produced much.

In No Particular Order

..starting to feel better after 3 weeks of being sick and miserable. Away on vacation and some R and R was just what the doctor ordered!..nice to get away and visit A*s parents and family, catch a hockey game as well as eat excessive amounts of food, shop and get some kitchen ideas for our summer projects..but the best thing was getting better cause I was a disaster and was starting to think I would never get better..it was also a Christmas miracle we got everything into our luggage for the flight home! Hehe

Moose Tacos

Who doesn’t love Moose Tacos! We slapped a moose roast in the oven to slow roast….after several hours it was fall-off the bone deliciousness.. here is the before shot:.image

And here is the after (or during) shot:

..or at least an approximation. We set it outside after we seperated the meat and the dish was nooooot quite high enough for our roving acrobatic scoudrel Loki. She ate it all. About 2 lbs of moose. Moist delicious potential taco moose. Gone. Regular tacos are still a favorite but my first resolution of the year is no more moose tacos for Loki in 2012.

Roll on the Floor Flooring

image

..well, we opted for a quicker solution to finishing the floor. We know we are going to do tile but in the meantime we picked up some vinyl flooring in the meantime. With the rest of the place near complete we want a final version..at least until we finalize it. It being the season for people popping in we has a neighbor drop by with a guitar to play and some canned caribou (and a bottle of whiskey to wash it down) which we cooked up as per his instructions with boiled potato…very tasty! Does caribou give you a headache the next morning?
