This is what's been going on.
was also painted flower pot red with a back splash wall added. THe picture doesn't do it justice.
This project was done by our friends at INTEXT.
THen we moved into Valentine's Day. THis is how my honey said, "I love you." A new Monstroncity of a treadmill that is quiet, speedy and will make me feel like I'm climbing Mt. Everest. A Nordic Track that almost does it all for you. It arrived this morning while I was working on his gift.
For the Commander, I'm building him a raised garden. It is in the shape of a 'C'. It will be framed with a three foot high fence on the front and sides, a gate at the center opening and the back row will be fenced five to six feet high with chicken wire for the beans, peas and other viney plants.The back is 18 feet in length, sides 10 feet. My sweetie asked today if I could build another one to match. Music to my ears.
Today we hauled compost from the store, dirt from the lower pile in our back yard per wheelbarrow up the hill. My arms and shoulders are talking tonight. Finishing the fence and gate will probably have to wait until this week's storm passes before I can posthole dig.
Along with the home projects, the two older boys are in public school and doing well, now. At least the urge to strangle someone (teacher, coach) has subsided.
The USM track team is done with indoors except for two going to nationals. Not my jumpers - poo. So we are working hard to get ready for outdoor track which starts Mid-March.
Gluten is done with futsal and practicing for spring soccer, Hubby is about to transition out of the army for good, come March.
I'm still homeschooling Gluten and babysitting a four year old bundle of happiness. AND I'm back to editing the book - which has become my favorite part of the day along with looking forward to treadmill time - I say that as I sit here eating Brach's conversation hearts.
So Michelle, I hope that catches you up. I've got to get over to yours, Julies, OkGranny and the others tonight.
Have a great week.
