One down, 24 to go!

Hey, This morning we managed to get a 18' diameter, 5 ring bin up. It is up and on the cone.... Hubby just needs to put the eye bolt in the back of the cone to tie up the rope.... and it's done. done. It feels so good to have that one done! I think it's encouraging, even though we have... hmmm 24 more of the same to go... but we are getting there!
Gotta run! Catch ya later!

So, you have been waiting for pictures eh????

Well, Hello again... long time no see.... hmmm that doesn't really fit... long time no chatter... on my part or yours I guess is more likely. I have an excuse though.... we have been away working and have not had a good Internet connection to be able to post up some stuff here...... even chatter is a trying thing on the wee bit of Internet I've seen. So, today I will bombard you with pictures.... LOL I hope you enjoy them... Let me know! I mean really... talk to me... that's why I have it so anyone can leave a comment... REALLY! So, this little guy above... not so little really. I took a picture to find out it was a gopher. From where I was standing he looked like a stump sticking up... and I knew there were no stumps in this yard!!!

Below is the first 2 bins we got up, in Outlook. If you look close you can see an extra window in the 3rd ring. This farmer wanted to be able to see if the bin was just full enough to cover the rocket air inside. You see the next ring doesn't have a roof yet either....
Then hubby went and built the whole bunch of 15 foot diameter roofs. Then we got to work and built them. I have to admit.... we were faster some days than others. We would put up 2 one day, 1 the next, then have a beautiful cool day and put up 3!!!! yes 3! then the next day we did 1, because my body said that was enough! So, bins are going up in bouts and spurts. But the 15ft diameter bins are all up now. On to the 18's... when we head back tomorrow.
Above is 4 bins across the south side of the yard. Below is the bins that go along the west side of the yard. We did have them in a better line than that, and there is one hiding behind the other 2 that are pulled out. We had to pull those 2 out because they were very unstable in the line. So, pulled them out to level them out so that it would take more to take them over.
This is what the South West corner of the yard looks like!
This is the 18 foot rows. This being the North west corner....
The North east corner. North being the sliver of hopper cones you can see.. on the left side of the picture. So, needless to say there is a damn good chunk of work to get done yet!
And here... the latest ultrasound pics.... very cool. Though I believe last times were much clearer on the the full baby body pics... but, I think baby was moving pretty good! Had a heart rate of 144.... so, it was up there...
Above is a full body but with a hand in front of the face.... the below one baby has both hand in front of the face I thinks.... Little boxer maybe? Or camera shy? :D
The next strip of 3 is really good... the top pic is the arm stretched out, the second is baby feet!!! so neat!, the bottom one is how baby is laying in the belly. Face down, you can see the spine really well. Baby is about 13oz. right now. And growing daily! :) I am getting excited... can you tell? Just a little maybe? :P

This was a really neat picnic table we saw at Dafoe. We wanted to go ask what they were asking for it but... the mosquito's were so bad I could roll down the window only long enough to take the pic... LOL Hubby went to look better but I was not getting out to get eaten alive!!! LOL
This is the first baby sweater I made. It's the rectangle pattern from the Better homes and gardens page. (Thank you Pauly) It turned out well.

And Last but not least.. remember those socks I told you about... The ones for my mom that were getting to be obscenely late for her birthday? I finished them.. they are in her hands now... so she can wear them on a chilly day or wait until fall when she will really need them! LOL I love the self striping yarn... it turned out beautiful!
Well that is about all that is exciting out there... at least for me.... I could ramble on more but... I will let you all absorb this first. How is that? LOL
Catch you all later!

:D :) :D :) (: O: (:

Hey yous,
Well, Had our first prenatal class on Monday. There were little things in it that were interesting... other things I had read about already. Did you know you can get tetness(spelling?) from working in the dirt? I thought it had to come from rusty metals... odd. Anyways.. good thing to know right? I think so... So, that was Mom and my Monday night.

Tuesday, Mom and I took off to Moose Jaw to see my sis! Not before we walked the dog though... and then we went and got the oil changed on the car then picked up my sis... Man!!! SHE LOOKS AWESOME!!! (she is shrinking in the good way!! Keep up the good work if your reading Sis!! LOVE YOU!!!) So we did some shopping in Moose Jaw, had lunch, iced tea at her place then at... hmmm almost 5 I would say, headed back to Regina... :) I laid down and put my feet up.. that was a lot of time on my feet!!!! (they are tender today.. but all good!!) I think the walking is good for me though... I found a bench here and there to park my ass on! LOL Just to rest my poor feet... I didn't swell up either so all is good.(I know some of you don't want to hear that but I know some of you really really do... so.. sorry for those who don't and your welcome to those that do!) So, spent the evening with my feet up.... all good!

Today, have some stuff to get done here in Regina. Hopefully get to see my sis and the boys here in town tonight.. see how her schedule goes though!

I made the 5 rectangle baby sweater from the Better homes and gardens website. Not sure I love it, but I do like it. I will be attempting a Diaper bag sweater next I thinks.... and maybe Dad's Christmas socks(while I feel like it). I am sorry no pics of the rectangle sweater.. I hope later though.... Long as I remember.

Hubby and I are going to ask what we are having now. I have gotten impatient. And he is a planner. SO, in 2 weeks if they can tell us... we shall know :) all good!!! In other baby news... I think I am starting to feel some kicks and such! Kinda neat... sometimes I am not sure if it's belly bubbles or baby, though other times it feels kinda definitive of not being belly bubbles.

Well, will talk to you all later! Love ya much!
