Planning ahead

It's not even January, I'm thinking of spring. More importantly I'm brainstorming. Last year was the first time in 5,6 years I didn't have a garden. I missed having fresh vegetables.
I love being able to go and pick what I need for a meal.
My backyard is like a blank canvas. I love that I can set it up how I/ hubby want to.
I know this spring I will plant more fruit trees. I am going to plant them on the north side of the lot, in the front yard.
I just now have to figure out how many and where to put my veggies beds.

I awoke and noticed it felt chilly.
I looked it up on my phone,

Yes, it felt every bit of -6.
Once the sun came up, I opened my curtains.

Yes, that is ice and frost. The windows are double pane. I have thick curtains which do help keep the heat in and the cold out.
Christmas was quiet. We stayed home.

My youngest son gets his braces tomorrow. My other son gets them adjusted.
Tomorrow evening will probably be a soup evening.
