Bathroom done! And farm spring (almost!) clean-up

Our bathroom is done! (except we have to sand and paint the door and its trim)  Since this is not technically a farm blog topic, I have posted the photos of this project (in case there's anyone that might be interested) on flickr.com at:

Yesterday we did some almost-spring clean up.  We had used what orchard prunings we could as wood chips and firewood.  The rest we hauled to the burn pile and burned.  I picked up stuff that hadn't been quite put away from the winter's projects.  We then used the tractor to haul a large tree top to the cows to rub on (which they love!) and then to haul the remaining gravel to the front of the barn, the back barn gate and our driveway.  I pulled the pallets up from the now gone hay mound that was in the barn and am getting the space ready to hold lambs.  Now we are just holding on waiting for spring with it's wool shearing, lambs, kids and bunnies!!!

I love the tile in your bathroom, AND the fleece border of your blog!

:oved seing all your animal faces - nice to have your bathroom all finished up, I'll bet. Since you were talking about it on your "blogoversary" post, it looks like it's been kind of a long haul. T.

We really need to redo our shower. Your tile looks really nice. Did you do it yourselves?

Thanks for the compliments. We hired my brother to help with the tiling since Tom and I have no experience tiling, and our bathroom has no square edges (or flat surfaces, or level planes, etc.). It is really nice to have it done and be able to use it!

It has been a long haul- but we have made progress here so it is nice to look back and appreciate it!

By the way, the fleece border is a photo of our Shetland ram Jocko's back- I am just totally in love with his wool!
