Good morning! Rise and shine. It is 6 AM, I’ve had my shower and coffee is in hand. E and our guests (workers) are still asleep. I’m afraid I broke them. They all worked so hard. So much was accomplished yesterday.

By five o’clock all walls were done, the pony wall along the centre of the cabin was up and the 28 foot 4×10 beam built and raised.. wow.. whew,,

Our other guest loves to wash windows. I know! She says it’s a Dutch thing. I recommend, especially if you live in a glass house, getting yourself some Dutch friends. She washed all of my windows, inside and out. Did you know if you wash windows, they shine? Who knew? Gorgeous.. she just uses vinegar, water and a drop of blue dawn.

It goes without saying that after a lovely dinner, bottle of wine and a glass of port, everyone was sound asleep by nine pm. I’m worried maybe it was too much and I broke them. I do hope they wake up. The bathroom ceiling has to
