Spring and Projects

Where Are We Today

"The Ridge" Priceville, Ontario

Spring has sprung at “The Ridge “with the new projects that come along with it each year. Most of you read Pat’s blog, Chillin with Patsy, and know that she has been busy with the gardens and raking. She has also started going through our belongings to thin out those items we no longer use.

As for myself, at work we are on to another job, redoing a kitchen in a farm house. At home, I have a few on the go, each one connected and dependent on another to complete.

This colt was born March 30th.

Baby and mom.

These two are a year old.

All these horses are harness racing horses.

The first thing we did was to get in a load of gravel, half of it dumped next to our storage shed and the other half dumped down next to my “Hangar”. Next to the storage shed we erected a Shelter Logic shed, this is a seasonal structure that will have the covering taken off this fall, leaving the frame set up for the winter.

Gravel spread next to the storage shed.

 This is where the first connection comes in to play. The riding lawn mower from the storage shed, the winter tires for the car, Pat’s garden wagon and our new toy will be kept in here. More on the new toy when we get it. With the storage shed empty of some of those items, I now have room to put in the tool box that I bought last fall and a table saw bought earlier this year. There will be some thinning out of other items in here also.

Reading the instructions

The second connection is to the “Hangar”, that is where the tool box was stored over the winter. With it now moved, I can get back to working on airplanes.

Almost done

Now to organize what goes inside

We have more projects that we want to do, but you will just have to wait until we get them done. This is a short post, trying to keep my hand in writing them, also one of Pat’s followers is asking for pictures of the new shed. Jackie, hope it was worth the wait.

Hope you are all well, safe and surviving all this Covid world that we are living in. Take care until the next time, your comments are always welcome. 


  1. That looks like the perfect storage shed as long as the wind doesn't try to take it away.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. The shed will work for what we want, the feet are fastened to 2x6's and the boards have 18 inch stakes through them. I also have some sand bags that will be laid on top of the boards.

  2. Looks like a dandy shed. Sure oughta work! Thanks for showing us.

  3. Well you know I love the horse pictures. Such a cute baby!!! The shed looks great. Perfect for extra storage.

    1. The horse pictures were put in mostly for you Nancy. The baby sure is cute, this morning I noticed that since Friday his teeth are through. The shed will work well for what we got it for.

  4. Love the pictures! The new shed looks awesome! Can't wait to see what the new "toy" is!!

    1. Thanks guys, the new toy will be 2 or 3 weeks yet but will post when we get it.

  5. Great pictures of the horses, cute little baby. Storage shed looks like a nice addition. A new "toy" looking forward to reading about what that is. Stay safe.

    1. Thanks Tom and Deb, yes the colt is cute and they are waiting for another to be born soon. We are anxiously waiting for our new toy, lock downs and government dragging feet are slowing down the process.
