Greetings from cold and snowy Indiana! Spring is struggling to get going this year and our spring projects are a bit slower than we had planned. In my cup this morning is regular old coffee with stevia and almond milk.
One of our projects was to build a backyard chicken coop for the chickie babies. Not so much babies anymore…they are all feathered in now and getting big. But they are growing fast and outgrowing the dog cage they are in. We have all the supplies for the coop…just waiting for the weather to cooperate. So far our diva dog Pepper has been very good with them, so we are hoping she will turn out to be a good protector and not an antagonist.
I had hoped to get the early spring garden in but again, trying to work around the weather has made it a
challenge. My seed starting indoors was a
big failure and I haven’t had a chance to redo the heirloom tomatoes and peppers I wanted to start. Are you seeing a pattern? lol Even so, God is in control so in His capable hands I will leave it all and just take things one day at a time.
One of the indoor projects that we did finish turning a spare closet into pantry. Hubby and son work hard and got it finished and I got it filled it up. It is so nice being able to have everything in one place now…and fairly organized. They did a great job! Our washer also sprung a leak and thankfully hubby and son were able to fix that as well saving us from having to buy a new washer. We are also waiting for better weather to finish the roof.
Another things I’ve been up to is I have been slowly working on restarting my craft business. I had it going successfully for a long time, then decided to pull the plug when it (and other things) started taking a toll on my health. Things have changed a lot in the short few years since I stopped and since I want to do this right I am not rushing things. The most time consuming part for me is taking pictures of everything and listing them. I have lots to list so taking pictures, editing and listing is a slow process. Despite that I find myself enjoying this much more than I ever have.
That’s it for now. I hope all is well where you are, I’d love to hear how your spring is going. Until next time, grace and peace!
Have mercy upon me, O God,
According to Your lovingkindness;
According to the multitude of Your tender mercies,
Blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.
