    Right now it's acting as a very expensive chicken coop. The gals real home is almost built so they'll be moving out. Our electrician friend, who will be doing all the electrical for us at cost for parts, has fallen upon some HARD times. Hopefully the electrical will be in by the end of next month. I've not wanted to set up any benches to get in the way of running the conduit etc. My plants tell me to get a move on every day!

    Thanks Marni. There's actually a lot of positive things happening right now for me, but just so much going on that I've not put the electrical system on my list as a priority.

    I use your mug every day and think about how talented you are!

    I've had some very busy last few months with my SIL. niece and nephew moving within 4 miles of me. They moved from Hawaii from a house I picked out for them..sight unseen! Talk about trust:> That's why I've not posted much recently. Anyhoo, my electrician friend had some serious personal issues over the last several months so I needed to wait patiently until he could get to the electrical. We used it as a large chicken coop for a couple of months;> 2 long days of work and most of the electrical is in. The cost of parts ONLY was close to $700. He's finishing it up next Sat. Woohoo!

    I should add, the cost doesn't include the light fixture,fan equipment, or labor.

    So Candace said, "Let there be LIGHT"! And after a looooong wait, 4 full days put in by the electrician, and a lot of money, there was light.

    That looks really nice, Candace. I can't believe you have a parasol in your GH, though. Can't you just get a shadecloth like everybody else?
