earth moving

Joel had some time off of work, so he started playing with the tractor last night after working on the new furnace connections all day. He gets a lot of stuff done in a short period of time with the tractor. He began moving one of the clay piles and using it to level a depressed area of the property east of the pond. Hard to do with low hanging branches of pine and hemlock trees, but he was patient with the tree situation and has gotten a lot of the levellling done. Needs to do an oil change on the tractor before he can finish up, but the progress is amazing. I'll have to get some photos soon.

Well the wood furnace has been replaced and tested on Friday. We tested the heating of the hot water in the house also and it worked really really well. It is going to be a lot different than our old hot water furnace, but I hope it will be much more efficient. There are a few wirinig things that have to be finished up in the house and woodshed to add more outlets now that the furnace (with pump and fan) is taking up more outlets we need more for lighting and to run to the pond pump and filter and waterfall..and probably some lights by the pond..so Joel will begin to work on that today. He may be off work but he'll be busy..so thankful for him.
