Warm and cozy

After getting all the gardens tucked in, mower et al stored in the shed and the woodpile restocked, it was time to kick back and enjoy doing nothing for a while. (Didn't I start reading a book sometime last February? Wonder where I put it...)

Well, that 'relaxing' thing lasted about a day. LOL

Honestly, it's really hard to just shut down cold turkey like that. So, having put down all the garden gear, I had hands free to take up caulk guns, glass cutters, tack hammers, sand paper and (be still my heart!) power tools. Yes, it's time for the opening of the Melissa Majora indoor winter games! (Commonly known as -- home improvements.)

I figure now is a good time to handle all those household projects that got pushed aside this summer in favor of gardening. I'll have to prioritize.

So I'm making a list
Checking it twice.
Gonna find out what I can make nice.

Oh good grief... ;-D

(P.S. For more Household Adventures, check out the new blog page listed at the top of the sidebar. Thanks for the idea, gld! :-D)


  1. That fire looks so cozy. We have an airtight old wood stove that works great, but we can't see the fire!

    Now, you need to share what household tasks, I need inspiration.

  2. Ah, gld, thanks for visiting the blog. :-D What a shame that you cannot watch your flames. They are sooo therapeutic!

    Tell you what....I like to keep the main page of the blog devoted to bee subjects (like the gardens, interesting bee & pollinator info, etc.). But I'll create a 'house projects' page and, when ready, will list it on the top of the sidebar along with the other blog pages. Thanks for your interest!

    Meanwhile, I've re-glazed a cracked window, sanded down and primed a used French door and am now working on sanding/priming all the interior bedroom/closet hollow doors. The old varnish is looking tired and have decided to eventually paint them a nice cream. But right now I'll settle for getting them all primed and I'll angst about final color later...


Thank you for visiting. I appreciate your notes, comments and questions and will try to reply to each one! :-)
