Just a short note to let all know what I have been up to.

I have been busy using this bad weather to work on my house. My plans are to have everything sorted and put away. Plus to clean out all my closets. It seems that every winter my closet get full, between old coats and jackets, to new winter items. So this year for every new item coming in an old item must leave. By doing this I hope to have the house finish by late Feb.

I have also been busy as ever working on my storage ( food, and household items). Winter time is a great time to rotate your can goods, and start your plans for your garden. I love getting and reading all the seed catalogs that come
in the mail this time of year. I want to add footage to my garden this year so that I can can more fresh food items to can.There is nothing better on a cold winter night than homemade soup using vegetables that you grew and canned yourself.
So until we meet again ~~smiles~~

Greetings to All. The start of the new year has came and life has settle down some what around our household. So it was time for me to get back to my poor blog. I hope the holidays were good for all. Our holidays were grand and we enjoyed having all the family around. Right now we are dealing with very cold weather as many are as well. We are doing a early spring cleaning. I have decided that while we were putting away our holiday decorations that we really needed to go though all the boxes that we have in our basement as well as our "office". If it didn't have anything to do with the area that it was in, we are going though them and putting them either where they belong or throwing it out. I was surpise how much we were able to par down in just a few days. I told my DH it was time to buy new stuff. LOL Well until we meet again ~~smiles~~
