Levi Was Here!

Levi came home for Spring Break and it was great to have him here! He helped me with my projects....

And he loved on the the cat was taking a nap on the musk ox hide....he sees Levi coming....


He also enjoyed relaxing......I don't think they're feeding him enough....

With both boys home there were lots of shoes in the mudroom again....

And Mr. Adams had to keep the fire stoked so there was enough hot water for everyone....

It was fun having him home again.


  1. Nice cookstove - you heat your water thru the wood stove?

    1. Yes, Mr. Adams welded a box onto the back of the woodstove and plumbed it to a stainless water tank which is in the closet behind the rockwork. the water thermosyphens (circulates because heat rises) and we have hot water!!! it's wonderful!
