We bought a new standing freezer for food storage from my garden, and I'm slowly filling it. That said, the set up we had for it was awkward. Even with my chair pushed in all the way at the kitchen table, the door didn't want to open far enough to let us take things out … Continue reading My Freezer Don’t Fit
Okay, this totally needed photos! We already had this feeder on the existing Shephard's hook. My mom gifted my husband with this one: And so I got him a matching one because hummingbirds will fight to the death over a feeder: And of course, if you have hummingbird feeders, you have to have oriole feeders … Continue reading My Husband Put Up Bird Feeders!

And then, he went through our wood pile of wood and brush and broke it down! The big, useful-but-won't-fit bits are to the side. Look how neatly it fits: Here's … Continue reading Updates on the Wood Box
My husband went picking through the pallets and wood left from the previous owner and made us a wood box. Total cost? Paint.

I gave up in the afternoon with the dishes and part of … Continue reading Cleaning for the House’s Appraisal

They've been working on cleaning up the old home, their 'starter' home of 30+ years for sale. This weekend, we visited … Continue reading Let’s Play What Circuit Is This Outlet On?
My hair had gotten to midback, and on Friday night it got pinned so badly beneath my husband that I cried while we tried to untangle because he didn't wake up right away. Plus I'm feeling awful... awful about my finances, awful about my mental health, awful about how much work I'm getting done and … Continue reading Time for Some Change – Get the Scissors!
