Haus Weaver II
It has been a busy few months, the house is painted, the kitchen mostly finished except for a couple little jobs. We are moved in and enjoying this little nest of ours. It took a few more dollars than planned, almost a few too many weeks. We lost a beloved dog, got married, and adopted another dog from a rescue in Aurora.
Remember what the kitchen looked like?
This is now! Hickory cabinets and a nice dishwasher. Many many thanks to Ev Brunke for installing the cabinets and designing a lovely matching backsplash for the countertops. We are also grateful to Mark Malmskog for his tools and expertise, and to the high school kids Paul wrangled into painting our ceilings one weekend. Clicking on the photo below will take you to a gallery of more before and after pictures.
I also dug through some shots from last spring and found a few of Ten Sleep and my family's ranch, click on the photo below to go to the gallery.
Paul and I are pretty excited for our next trip up there, the premier of the movie Wanda the Wonderful is happening over the 4th of July! I don't think I've mentioned this much, but my great-grandmother Wanda was a traveling sharpshooter for Remington during the twenties, before she met and married my great-grandfather Carl and settled (sorta) down in Worland/Ten Sleep. My cousin Carolyn Macartney wrote and directed the film about her. My only claim to the film is a split second scene of a pistol being fired during the trailer - and I was the one shooting it. Anyway, here's an original promo portrait of Wanda; click the picture to go to the official film website.
And here's gorgeous ol' Castle Gardens, a few miles west of town. I would ride my bike out here and just wander around reveling in the loneness of the place. Somewhere in all my stuff are pictures and a video my sister Joslyn took of me dancing on the rocks, there is a hollow, a wide windowed shelf covered in a deep layer of sand that serves perfectly as a stage.
