Remember that house I was loving and waiting on?
A couple of days ago, the house went into foreclosure.
And it is due to be sold on the courthouse steps...
Like some kind of scoundrel.
See that uneven round thing that looks like a tree stump?
Well, it IS a tree stump. From a Horse Apple Tree...
AKA Bois d'Arc... pronounced "Bo-Dark" or "Bo-Dock"
Well, back around the late 1800's Bois d'Arc was all the rage.
This wood is said to get harder and more stable with age.
It is termite proof, too.
And so it was used in house construction.
But you hardly ever see in in houses built past 1920 ish.
They made the piers that are now usually made of concrete.
This is the foundation of the house I put a bid in.
The whole house rests on these short little stumps!
I kinda sorta crawled up under there myself and looked...
I was pretty sad.... actually!
I had not had any interest in any kind of house
Since the horrid fiasco I had with my house in 2005.
(I was cleaned out 3 times, and vandalized..)
The taxes from that house time are still not resolved.
When I am upset, I just don't eat.
I think I had a few bites of bacon and some fat bombs.
I slept about 14 hours, and that was that.
Went shopping today, to stock up on some good things...
Who knows... the house deal - might be a good thing.
Just a disappointing thing.
These are fat bombs.... Butter and coconut oil
with maybe a drop of flavour - helps LC people
get into ketosis... and mades a great snack!
A smile. That is all.... just a smile!
