Hello! Happy Monday! How’s it going??? Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was good. Something I didn’t mention on here but I just returned from spending the summer in the Pacific Northwest. My weekend was spent driving back and getting my house back up and running. Let me explain what that means…
Hello all! Welcome back! Sorry I took some time off last week…it was a whirlwind of a week/weekend (the ear is better but not back to normal which they think is actually something else now..womp womp) and doesn’t look like it’s going to calm down any time soon. =) BUT that’s a good thing because while I can’t say I’m OFFICIALLY on summer break yet (I’m teaching a 2 week summer class) it is somewhat summer break as this class is going to be FUN and I’m so so so fortunate to have this opportunity. I’ll explain more when I get some extra time. In the meantime, enjoy some summer photos of my house!
Hey, hey! Welcome back! Happy Monday! How are you all doing today? Did you have a good weekend? Mine was good. After getting some work done Saturday morning, I got the insulation and the skirting installed as per my “to-do” list. There is still a little bit that I want to try and fix as I can’t quite get the skirting to lay flat against the backside where the sewer and water line come out of the house.
TGIF! Woohoo! The weekend is here again! Since I was out of town last weekend I feel like I’ve been playing catch up all week. Don’t you hate that?! This is going to be a short post as I’m sad because I think I killed my lemon tree. Oh yeah, you forgot I had a lemon tree? This might jog your memory or maybe this one?
Anyways, I brought it inside for the winter and it hasn’t produced any more lemons and in fact the leaves are falling off. I think not watering it while I was away during Christmas break traumatized it.
It doesn’t look so hot huh? Perhaps it didn’t get enough sun in the loft…anyways, I will be taking care of that as well as installing my new toilet this weekend! I’m sure I’ll have tons of stories to tell with that so stop in next week. =)
TGIF! Woohoo! It’s Fri-YAY! =) Hope you have fun plans this weekend. I’ve gotta get in a semi-long training run in and catch up on some work. (did I mention I’m running Austin Marathon in 3 week?) Other than that I plan to relax! I need some down time after this busy busy week.
Today’s topic is on composting! =) Are you all as excited as I am??? I’m sure you are…and if not just roll with it today. =)
Happy Hump Day! Hope your all doing well and having a great week so far. Mine’s been busy busy busy as the new semester kicks off and I’m still figuring out my schedule. It usually take a good month to get into the swing of it. =)
The past few days have felt more like spring than winter – which, I know, some of you would like – however, there was one day when the temps got below freezing one night. This isn’t a problem now that I have my garage set up and water lines all figured out…or so I thought.
I awoke one day earlier this week to no water. WHAT?!?! How can I have no water when I have a (very expensive) automatic electric heated water line to prevent this exact thing? See the plugs going from the well & hose to the electric box behind?
Hello and happy Tuesday! Did you have a great weekend?! I didn’t get a chance to ask you because I was celebrating yesterday. =) My weekend was…interesting. Let me explain. So it felt like winter again here (yay!) with the night time temps reaching down in the 20’s (ok, that only happened 1 night). I thought this would be the perfect time to try out the heat lamp idea – I also had just gotten the thermostat outlet.
A few days ago I posted the idea about a heat lamp used for chicken coops….remember?
Well, I went to the local farm supply store (it happens to be 1 mile from my house and also where I go to fill my propane tanks) and discussed this with the folks there since someone where *hopefully* use these or at least are more familiar with them than me.
