We have been enjoying living out where we do. A few weekends ago we cleaned out Jon's work shop. We were going to wait until spring to do it.. But it was a nice day and we took advantage of it. I'm glad we did.. because..
... Jon has been enjoying going out into his shop and fiddling around with his tools. I love seeing what he can do. He is so talented when it comes to building and planning. Heres a little sign he routed out.. :)
The dogs love staying close to the fire, its like our sleeping pill for them. haha Have a nice fire going and they will lie by the fire in the sun all day.
Today is Friday March 7th, the beginning of my vacation from work for March break. It has been a very cold winter. The wood stove has been going none stop and at times has a hard time keeping the house warm, with -30 + weather I don't blame it. Theres a glimmer of hope around the corner though. The sun has been shining in all its glory and I could not be happier. It seemed the sun hasn't been around all winter. So I love being able to go outside and feel the warmth of the sun on my face. The clocks spring forward as well this weekend. More daylight sounds good to me!
I took the pail of ashes out to the back of the property and got some nice shots of the sun shining along our fence line and backyard I love that I can look out and see a church in the distance, what a nice view to have!
All the patients kept asking what my plans were for March break, asking if I am going anywhere warm etc.. (maybe another year or so we will) But this year I'm having a stay-cation. When I look around at where I live I don't really need to go anywhere. People buy properties outside of town by the water to use as a vacation/cottage spot. I'm blessed to have the seclusion of living where we live. So I honestly feel staying home and having time to relax in my house is a vacation. I can make myself a cup of tea and sit by the warm fire and just enjoy peace and quiet without having to be thinking of going to work... hmm.. I think thats what I'm going to do right now. :) Hope everyone that has March break off has safe travels and if your staying home enjoy your vacation at home and just relax. I think people need to learn to just relax and enjoy. If that means working in your work shop, scrapbooking, taking a tub with a good book, taking your dog for a walk. What ever your idea of relaxation and enjoyment is try and do it this March break.. and just remember Spring is around the corner.
