It was a gorgeous and productive couple of days at the Liberty house this weekend, and I really want to tell you guys about the level of personal filthiness I managed to achieve in the last forty-eight hours. I do. There were two-and-a-half dead birds involved. Unfortunately there was also a neck injury involved. (No, I didn’t fall off a ladder.)
I’m not entirely sure what happened, to be honest. I did my usual crazy amount of lifting and hauling and wedging myself into teeny, tiny spaces, and I don’t remember actually injuring myself, but as Saturday wore on I gradually lost my ability to turn my head to the left, and by the end of day Sunday I could no longer blink without a searing pain shooting through the right side of my neck.
I’ve had my fair share of sore muscles from a good day’s work, but this is something… beyond. So in an effort to move as little as possible (did you know you use neck muscles when typing? no? me either, but I do now) I’m going to just shut up and share some snapshots I’ve captured over the last few weeks, as summer comes to an end…
So basically it looks I’ve been spending a lot of time laying in the grass and taking pictures while I’m driving… which is probably pretty accurate.
My first summer at the Liberty House was epic– house projects aside, I learned a ton about living out here in the country and maintaining my little chunk of land. Fall and Winter will bring different challenges, and even though it’s a lot of work, I’m still excited to watch the changes as a new season rolls in.
