What goes up ....

I'm king of the castle! And you're all dirty rascals!
Yup, it's really cool being on top of the waterhouse.
I spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how to get on top of this thing
and now here I am. Life is good.

Here I am. Huh. Still up here. It's kinda boring up here.
View isn't as good as I thought. And how the heck am I gonna get down?
I need help. Hey! Quit laughing at me! Somebody hellllllp.

"Just trust me," Dave says. It's not his butt up here.
I hope there's no dog poo on the bottom of my shoes...

... if there is, now it's all over my jacket. 

Do I look stupid? Because I feel stupid.
Nope, this isn't humiliating at all. Not if you're six.
Unfortunately I'm 12. 

Stop taking pictures of my butt!

Whew! Safe at last. 

Now I gotta find the camera and destroy the evidence
before Mom posts this on the internet.
GAH! TOO LATE!

  2. Watch watch out, Cathy - when he grows up & you're in your dotage he'll have some say over which nursing home to stick you in! (That was the threat my son used if I ever embarrassed him!)

    1. I've already told him he's changing my diapers... which freaks him out to no end. Especially since I'm an "old" mom, that dotage is closer than he realizes! Muahahahahahaha!

    1. Our log cabin doesn't have a basement so the water lines from the well come up on the outside of the building. To make sure they don't freeze, Dave built an insulated and heated "waterhouse" around them! Isn't he a talent?

      I'm not sure what the official name for it is, but we always call it the waterhouse!

  11. Is that YOUR house? It's fantastic; those corner dovetail joints are superb. I'm jealous.

    1. That's so nice, Cro, thanks! Yes, it is our house! Built in 1880, which may not sound old in Europe, but it is one of the oldest structures in Muskoka, where I live (wasn't settled by the dreaded white men until mid to late 1800s). And no doubt built by trappers or loggers with trees on the property.
