Up against it. Please, PLEASE share the links.

That up there? That's not on the floor anymore. No, it's not a new shot; still having the same issues with space and memory and download. But it was all woodwork today, and except for a little bit with regard to the mouldings in the stairwell and my sanctuary space, and the trim on the west window in the same area, it's basically done. No Sherm today, though; apparently his kid was trying to keep up with the big kids, tried jumping out of a tree, and injured his ankle. So the plaster on the vigas is delayed.

Tomorrow is the first day of summer (and writing about the dragonflies the last two days apparently summoned them — they're here!), and I am one month out from a big deadline and I have no way of getting it all done. Certainly not without shares, and not without raising a WHOLE LOT more money, whether via donations or sales. I am up against it now and at my wits' end, what little I have left, anyway, and I can expect very little sleep for the next four weeks. We need help, and badly, to make a lot of this stuff happen. It's not just the $2,500 for materials/labor next week; it's $1,700 for the electric, and ungodly amount for the flooring, $4K for the exterior top coat, and none of that includes the kitchen appliances and cabinets, water heater, or the disaster that is the septic system.

Here are the links, because we are going to need shares every single day just to put a dent in it all. Please, PLEASE share them, consistently:
  • First, to donate, the PayPal link is here
  • Second, for sales (which we really need to make, and I'll be highlighting some of his high-end stuff on the site this week), the link to Wings's site (preferably with a testimonial, if you have some of his work), because sales are gonna keep this thing rolling. 
  • And finally, the link to our wishlist (which badly needs updating), with an emphasis on the Lowe's gift cards, because those are what will help us pay for all the stuff that will make this place liveable, like a water heater and flooring and so forth. [Shout-out also to the generous person (tm, maybe?) who bought the molasses, which is how we medicate the horses, and to the three folks who sent Lowe's gift cards.] A note here: To tile the downstairs, we'll need to go to Home Depot, which doesn't sell gift cards through Amazon; they can be purchased through the company's Web site here.
Many thanks and much love to everyone. I have to go back to work now; in for another long, long night.
