It was a good year but I'm glad that 2013 is here
Forgive my lack of posting in December. It's been a whirlwind of activity at our place of late. Entertaining, house guests (and the musical beds that that entails), parties, celebrating, eldercare, babies, cooking and gifting galore! Whew.
I can see that the calendar is clearing just like this photo (taken while peeking out at the farmer's field behind our back tree line). Wide open white spaces... ahhhh :)
2013 looks really good to me right now. So much is planned for our homestead and we're knee deep in drawings and ideas for another greenhouse/chicken house and a new shed (for starters). As we look to incorporate permaculture concepts on our land, we view things quite differently now. No more single function structures ~ instead, well planned, multifunctional spaces reign. Lots of work to climb this steep learning curve, though...
First up, however, is inside work while we are in winter's icy grip. To start: a massive, month long re-organization and de-cluttering project that began today with me putting away Christmas decorations. I inherited my Grandmother's china cabinet and I'm thrilled to be putting it to good use in our living room which will free up some cupboard space in the kitchen... the domino effect has begun, LOL.
Kelly has been tackling the garage and it looks fantastic! After 18 months of neglect while hubby worked out of town, it's finally looking really organized and functional out there. So much better for working on the new projects this year.
Welcome 2013 - give us what you've got!
