I wanted to show you a few pictures of what's been keeping me busy. This is our building where we do our pecans, store our equipment & house the trucks & tractors. When Danny & his 2 partners opened up a full time starter & alternator shop they used our building here for about a year until they could find a better location. During that time our building got in a serious mess & has been in one since they moved out over 6 years ago. The old work benches were ripped out & rebuilt with better lighting and overhead storage. Peg board added for hanging up tools. The old office was torn down & in it's place...A NEW KITCHEN for me!! You can see the outside wall has been organized with all of Danny's hunting & fishing stuff. All of his rods & reels were hung on the wall, a place for all the cane poles, a cabinet for fishing tackle, peg board for hanging MORE fishing tackle, our tree climbers are hanging neatly on the wall & the fish scalier & oyster roaster are all in their on neat spot. On top of the kitchen is a large storage area. Our hunting buckets & coolers will go up there. Inside the kitchen will be everything I need to do all my canning in the summer & fall. My pea sheller & corn creamer have their place there & I will be able to bag up my pecans here after they have been cracked & blowed. Pecan season will be nice. NO one will be tracking in my house for meals or anything else. We already had a bathroom so we are good to go!
The catch here was that I thought all of this was for Danny....I didn't know I was getting a kitchen until I seen the stove! My parents-n-law & my husband had been LYING to me for the past two months! They have been coming over working like dogs Monday thru Friday for all this time & I was clueless!! Tomorrow they are coming to add some shelves in the kitchen & it will be finished. I'm gonna miss not seeing them so often. They have sure been a blessing to me! Now that is love!
