The push is on to finish the exterior of the cabin before winter arrives. We worked hard this weekend. Really hard. Cutting and staining and hammering until well past dark, headlamps burning, propane lantern sputtering in the drizzling rain.

I’m sure the animals thought we were crazy. Certainly we disturbed their routine. The mouse that runs wildly back and forth across our tent every night was definitely out of sorts. It only crossed the tent about twenty times instead of the usual five hundred. In any case, we were so tired by the time we finally fell into bed we wouldn’t have heard it anyway.

We did hear the owl though. And the whippoorwill.
