All Good Things.....

Why is it that whenever I get started on big projects, there is a hurry up and wait factor? I made a decision on the windows, and took the one with the lowest quote - Not because they were the lowest, but because they seemed to be the most... Read more

So….I’ve got my third window quote. It’s the highest one, and it seems to be a pretty fair offer. However, the salesman has been here three times, and is always late. He’s hard to get ahold of, too, and tells me that he’s in areas with no cel... Read more
Still Trying to Find Tradespeople

Good grief! It's a good thing I don't have any major issues right now. Electricians in this area are ridiculously hard to find. I've left messages at every office and have yet to get a call back to schedule! Since January!! Criminy! It... Read more

We never did get a good solid rain yesterday afternoon – Little sprinkles here and there. If it rained last night, I certainly didn’t hear it. This morning I woke up to fog, which slowly cleared to what we have now – Cloudy, threatening rain, ... Read more

Yep. It’s another one of those gray, looks like rain, days today. Here in Florida, you never know. It might rain…..might not. Regardless, it has us moving in slow motion. I probably should be mowing the front lawn, but sure as I do, it’... Read more

Today was another awesome day - Sunny and warm. I didn't even need a jacket when I saw to the chickens this morning. I'm enjoying it while I can - I'm willing to bet that we'll get at least one or two more cold spells before Spring really sets... Read more

Things do move slowly here, but they get done eventually. I’m supposed to hear from the third and final window company tomorrow. They’ll give me a time certain to come out and measure, and then I get to wait for the quote. I’m STILL waiting f... Read more

After a couple of days of sunshine, we' had two foggy mornings and lots of clouds. Today, the first day of March promises rain, as does March 2. The rest of the week boasts warm and sunny days. 'Guess I'd better get my butt in gear and get a ... Read more

It's quite possible that I will be unpacking for the next year, LOL, maybe longer.... Saturday was another busy day. Cool and rainy in the morning. Lots of unpacking and putting, and of course, chores and preparing meals. I also finally ... Read more

Today I got a few things checked off my to-do list. Yay!! First off, I made sausage and cut up a smoked ham into slices yesterday, so today I made up the bags for vacu-sealing. By the time I'd finished vacu-sealing the ham slices, the rep... Read more

Quiet and Relaxing Sunday

You guessed it - Cloudy and drizzly today. And chilly. My son and I both did a lot of nothing, and I actually did a little napping. Since it was cold, I thought it might be a good time to get my grow lights up. I'll be starting peppers a... Read more

LOL, I think it's going to rain for almost the entire month of February. Honestly, its not a constant rain, but it's grey and drizzly. Yesterday was almost 80 degrees - Today is 54. At least it's fairly temperate here! This morning, I in... Read more
