Week 1 2017

It seems strange that the first week of 2017 is almost complete.
It's been below freezing here for the week. I love seeing the sun and the blue sky, but the cold takes your breath away. This summer/fall, we will be installing a pellet stove in the basement. My new windows are holding up amazing. No drafts, no ice!

Hubby and I decided each payday we will pick up something for the house. Today I picked up trim to put up around a door we replaced in the basement. Next pay day I will get some paint for the kitchen.
I am hoping by March, to begin replacing the rest of the Windows.

Andrew and I went to Lowes to pick up ice melt. We picked up 80 pounds. I don't want anyone slipping,falling or getting hurt in my driveway or walkway. As we went in, we spotted the vegetable seed display. I am hoping in a week, to begin planting and growing lettuce and spinach in my kitchen. The area is bright, gets plenty of sun.  Andrew was pouring over the watermelon seeds. 
I love spring, and being able to plant and grow things!


  1. Good idea to get some seeds started - I need to do that too! Spring will be here before we know it!

  2. My husband emigrated to Australia from England back in 1960 when he was 30. Whenever I say I would love it to snow (our summers in Perth are exceptionally hot) he says snow looks pretty on Christmas cards but is not always easy to live with. I just pretend sometimes when the temperatures soar. :)
