Well, Things are progressing along here. we are preparing for sealift, so lots of re-aranging of the warehouses. We expect sealift on or around Sept 15. Its a beautiful sunny day with a high of 10 C however with the wind it won't feel like that. Christopher has started to come down with our cold, Around 4 this morning he woke us us because his eye had sealed shut with eye goo and this had caused him great distress, But mommy made it all ok.
Hopefully if we're all feeling well this week, I'll take Melissa out on the land and teach her how to shoot safely, while christopher is in Daycare. Since some have expressed concern over the keeping of a gun in a house with a child, I thought I'd describe some of the measure's we've taken to ensure Christophers safety. First the rifle is kept in a gun cases with 2 combination locks on the outside, If he gets past these he will find the bolt of the gun removed and a lock laced through the chamber stopping the bolt from being reinserted. The gun also has a key controlled trigger lock preventing all access to the trigger. The ammunition for the rifle is kept in another locked box hidden in the laundry room closet, on the top shelf. If some one broke in the house it would take us about 15 minutes to get everything together and unlocked in order to use the rifle. However the rifle is not to protect us from intruders it is to protect us from wildlife concerns.
We can still see snow from our front porch, this is a intentional rub at those of you suffering through unbearable heat down south. It has actually been a very cool summer, on the days when the sun is out , it has been too wind y to really enjoy the sunshine.
Things have been undergoing changes at the store and I'll inform you all of them when I'm able, however I expect our next step in the journey to come in early October
P.S. I'm running out of topics, so feel free to fire some questions at us.
P.P.S. The photo with ice in the bay was taken on July 1st.
