|Reading nook in our bedroom.|
Our 220 year old home has no closets, so, this week Brandon created a closet for me! It is at the top of
the stairs right outside our bedroom. I have 2 rows of closet rods, lots of rubbermaid bins and drawers a shoe rack and my label maker got a major workout!! All of my hanging clothes had been in a wardrobe that was in the living room. This new closet will go along way in reducing the "streak factor" in our house. ;)
|Okay, so the shoes could be neater, but believe me, this is a HUGE improvement!|
|My start to organizing our homeschool area.|
We are still really enjoying the chicks. They have tail feathers already! We had a chick fall prey to Amos our hound. Still not sure what happened other than he snatched a chick and killed it. She had no breaks in her skin or anything. It was very sad and I felt so guilty for letting him get her. The kids took it okay. Anyway, we are down to 7 chicks.
Yesterday I finally got a chance to get out in the garden for the whole day! With Mema's help, I got the potatoes in (I think we will have around 40 plants). I got another bed dug and planted cabbage, dill and radishes. My Mama planted flower bulbs and a bleeding heart in my shade-loving perennial bed. Brandon got the 3+ acres of grass cut and it looks fantastic. I had forgotten how beautiful our yard is in the "green" season!
It is raining today, so we are going to keep it pretty low-key. I may even try to catch a nap later!
