Ah fickle spring


It's the first day of spring on the calendar, but the weather says otherwise. Two days ago the snow was long gone, the temperature was in the 60's, the motorcycles were out and I was beginning to worry about what I was going to do about this atrocious landscaping around here.

Today, the thoughts were more to, getting the car cleaned off, hoping it doesn't last long, and that my daffodil buds are ok.

Very important day tomorrow! Someone in our household (youngest angel)  turns 15. I think I have a thing or two she'll be happy with. For one I'm about 1/2 way through with the remodeling of a basement storage room into a 2nd bathroom, mostly for her use :) I can't wait until that's done for her!!!

Spring - Reading and digging




Can't wait to get to some of these. Sometimes I'm so anxious to get to the next book, I don't give my current book the focus it deserves. The one I'm on now, is NOT that kind of book. (it doesn't really deserve it, but I've started it so I may as well keep going)

     1) The Host - Stephanie Meyer


     2) Sara's Key - Tatiana de Rosnay

 
     3) Looking For Alaska - John Green (he's one of my forever favorites!)



     4) Water for Elephants - Sara Gruen

That's all for me. I'm still in the midst of bathroom remodels. ~~ I got the gray paint on the wall and I LOVE it!!! :) The dove gray and white will work out splendidly! Anyway, so I won't have as much time to devote to reading because I won't be able to get to bed early, which is when I DO all my reading.

I'm also in the midst of a landscaping crisis...the crisis is there is none in front of my tiny house and I hate any that is anywhere else around my tiny house...I need a total re-do. And I'm not a plant person...actually I'm a plant serial killer I"m afraid, so I have no idea where to start...except simple.

I even toyed with the idea of simply doing hostas all the way around. pretty cheesy huh?

Catching up

I never get a chance to do the relaxing, putz around things I love it seems. At least not anymore. Consequently, I don't get here too often.

I've accomplished some things I set out to do that are pretty fun!

I'm working on adding a bathroom to my basement...or my carpenter is. I have before pictures and will so happily post afters, once I get there...color scheme is gray and white.

I finished my fall reading list (plus a couple) just in time to start a spring one...ohhh decisions!

I've gotten some good bargains, just no time to post about them...totally jonesing for yard sale season!

And the love life...well they still call me the one date wonder :)
