Busy Fall

It's a busy fall season, just as it has been for years.  We have 4 closings set for the next 4 weeks and we hope to start 4 new homes.

Here's Barn VI, all dressed up and ready for sale.  This one will lead off the inning, then Farm 19 will sell, then Cottage 39 and then Arts and Crafts II just around Thanksgiving.

I've been sick as a dog for more than a month now.  I guess the double-screw job by Henning from Henning's Local and my key man was a little much for me physically having been near the tipping point of exhaustion just by our typical workload, but mentally, we are back at it, - reinvented, stronger than ever.  I don't think we've ever gone backwards for long - just figure out what needs to be done and make it happen.  It's also amazing what a little money does for decision-making.  Back in the day, when money was real tight, decisions were primarily influenced by cost - now, of course cost is important, but you can throw a little money at the problem and boy does that lessen the load.

I don't think I've ever been sick this long - couple of days and bam, I'm usually over it. It kind of feels like a cleansing of the past, and a preparation of the future - rinsed of the nonsense that I felt I needed to entertain to keep things rolling.  Rinsed of the nonsense people who cloud my ambitions.  But Christ, 30 days is a long time to be sniffling, sneezing, staying home from work, visiting emergency rooms, having an ear I can't hear out of.

Man up Petersheim - it's a contact sport for sure out there.  And let the best man (team) win.

Things are busy and they seem to be getting busier.  And if this economy ever gets straightened out, we are in for a wild ride indeed.  I run a spray foam insulation business that is kicking it bigtime after a 3 yr startup struggle so that's exciting to see the rewards from that day in day out effort.

Lucas turned 4 and we had a party for him at Circle Park in Glen Spey.  About 12 of his buds came including the representation from Cottage 36, Cottage 34, Micro Cottage 4 and Barn 3.

Saturday and Sunday were seriously gorgeous days up here.  Wow.
