As you may know, we're in the process of renovating a little old farmhouse outside of town, and trying to sell our beautiful current home. (I wish we could take it with us!) We were out at the new place for a bit on the weekend. Things inside the house are just finishing up the 'it gets worse before it gets better' stage, and I'm so excited to see it come together. Adam's been cleaning out the chicken barn, and that little nest with a chestnut in it caught my eye. I'm so excited for the weather to start warming up and to see what comes up out there - I found a few snowdrops, and there are some bulbs poking up that appear to be daffodils. There's definitely an old rambling rose and a lilac up by the house, and who knows what other treasures we might find?
In other news, we have a blizzard warning for tomorrow (March 26?! this is crazy) and it's shaping up to be the worst storm of the winter. Errr... I mean early spring. So maybe the windows won't arrive tomorrow as expected.
Also, I seem to have caught some kind of disgusting something. I stayed home from work today and slept all morning, which helped a lot.
We have a house showing on Friday! As usual, my fingers are crossed.
I've been reading every beekeeping book I can get my hands on. Did I tell you that we ordered our bees? They'll be ready in June. I am soooooo excited.
Oh! And one thing that I am most excited about in the new house is that we can fit an end cupboard for cleaning supplies next to the fridge like this one! Wheeeee!
And the other special thing about this day in particular, is that on this day four years ago, a certain someone joined our family. He has been the happiest, most mischievous kid, and we're so happy that he's here. He loves anything that can BANG! BOOM! CRASH! or be otherwise destructive. He peed in the garbage can the other day. He loves to tell jokes, cuddle and read books, and to snuggle with a soft blanket. A few minutes ago, he unrolled an entire roll of toilet paper. Give him a tool (a lawn mower, perhaps?) and he's happy for the rest of the day. He is funny, and loves to put on a show for anyone who will watch. He's smart (he was telling the doctor a few weeks ago about what white blood cells do) and kind. And he talks non-stop, with the cutest little voice. Thanks to Adam for the picture of our fantastic four-year-old!
May you weather the blizzard with ease, and enjoy these last few days of March!
