When they say "When Texas Freezes Over",,,or is it another place

The weather has been a little different for a few days, but heck, down here we can have all four seasons in one day.

You hardly see any progress with the "hotel", but at least you can see that I have started on the porch that will go along the front of the building.  A fair amount of work has been done on the inside, but you can't see that from this picture.

Below. to the left is the grandkids area; post office, general store,
reading room, art room, etc...they have free roam in this area.

The office, or "writing room" is almost finished.  Just a few more boards and trim and I will be able to "pickle" the ceiling rafters and then put up wains coating then I will be ready to paint the wall.  The finished floor will be last, when I put the floor down in the rest of the building.  Saying that this is a bigger hill to climb that first thought would be an understatement.
Here are a few more photos of work to be done.  The attic  will be two sleeping lofts and the upper center floor will be removed at the last and the center, common area will be vaulted to the roof ridge.

Questions and comments welcome, and actually encouraged...
Thanks, Glenn

I Stopped Writing,,,But Now A New Project (maybe)

I stopped writing...a couple of years back after I had a health hic-up.  I did not stop because I did not feel well enough, it was because I felt so much better,,,I think.  I plan to start back.
   The Blog scene has changed since that time.  A lot of my followers, along with myself, have cut way back or stopped altogether, with their blog posting.
   I have so much to learn about the craft of writing and I enjoy writing.  I am kicking around a "new-approach" to help with this learning process. 
   My "Aunt Sadie" who was an actual, true-to-life "Rosie the Riveter" during World War II, told me on several occasions that everyone  needs one new project going along with others with which you may be working.
   This new project is a website that invites the participation of other writers from the writing group that I belong to, web-friends (writers), and hopefully established writers from other areas.  Writing tips, method or handy-hints that anyone would care to share with others along with interviews both in print and YouTube.  Included would be author interviews, book reviews and links to where authors could sell their stories and books.

Suggestions from individual participants will certainly be considered.

  Your thoughts even though you don't want to participate would be greatly appreciated

Thanks, Glenn
