Well at least for some of us it's afternoon ;)
Things have been pretty quite
as far as me blogging goes.
Since Christmas and bringing home
the horses we've been working around the
farm fixing buildings etc.
Typical things when you live in the country.
I must say though that even though
I've only gotten on Rosey's back
once since we bought she and Hope home
New Years Eve
I've been spending a LOT of time outside
which is a good thing because I
can sure use the exercise!
It's amazing how much poop
horses make in just
a couple of days
couple of days I'm out
scooping it up.
Our gardens will certainly appreciate
it eventually :)
Before I headed outside to shovel
more...STUFF this morning... I grabbed my camera
and walked around the house snapping photo's.
Now that the tree and decorations are down
things are back to normal again.
I haven't really made any New Year's resolutions
other than the usual trying to eat healthier
and being more active...
I think I've got the second one taken care of
thanks to the horses.
We'll see about the eating healthier part.
We have no plans to start renovating
the kitchen and back porch/laundry/entry
this year but you never know.
Hubby may get a bee in his bonnet
and decide to dive right in.
I overheard him tell someone the other day
that if they come to visit this summer
they'll see a new screened porch
on the house.
I'm going to be smart and not even
mention it...sometimes things work better
that way ;)
As I was putting the decorations away I found
this old stained glass window that
came from an old house in
I had wrapped it up for one of our moves
and forgot all about it!
It had an old white chipped paint
wooden frame around it when I bought it
about 30 years ago but in those days no one liked
that look. SO...I had it removed
from the frame.
I know...I'm still kicking myself over that one.
It got a little beat up on it's trip
down here to Kansas nearly 12 years ago
but it's still in one piece.
It's from the mid 1800's.
See the little antennae sticking out
from the glass?
This spring we'll be starting to paint
a few of the old buildings on the farm.
As much as I like the old 'chippy' look
somehow it doesn't feel the same when
it comes to old buildings...at least not to me
and most especially to hubby.
Also if you want to preserve the old buildings
you have to protect them from
So you'll be seeing lots of
with white trim
and visa versa
in a few months.
Hopefully all this outside work
will help get me back into shape.
Now if I could only keep
my hand out of the
cheese curl bag!
Do you have any projects planned for this year?
