Where has the time gone, can’t believe a week has already gone by.

Well winter has finally come to us. We had bare ground and within two days we got over a foot and a half of snow, had a day off from the snow and now it is snowing again, so far at least 6 more inches today. It is crazy. And to make it even better the toilet in my bathroom got a leak in the tank and I didn’t see it for a few hours so my floor is soaked with a ton of water. Pretty sure we are going to have to rip out the carpet, we have been wanting to redo that bathroom but not just now. So I will be looking for inexpensive  ideas of what I want to do.

300 a month,

I did much better this week I didn’t spend anything yah. I even had to run to town to get a couple things for the daycare. So I am still at 154.41 and that leaves me 145.59 for the rest of the month.


I didn’t get much done on the rooms, but I am going to have to get it done if we are going to have to redo our bathroom. It is a huge bathroom with a empty corner that I use to store stuff in so I am going to have to get  the room doable to put that stuff in so we can do the bathroom.

I am going to try and deep clean a room a week, with the holidays and just life in general my house has gotten a little lot cluttered and in need of some deep cleaning and redecorating. Good grief how on earth can it get to be such a mess in such a short time?


Well I still didn’t get bread made I don’t know why I can’t get that done seems like I just don’t have enough time in the day. Well hopefully this week I really need to get it done since I told Andy I would get him some bread made. I have some bananas that are a little past date so I need to get some banana bread made with them I also have a few apples left that I want to make a apple upside down cake with.

Sewing Table,

I got Joleens pants mended just in time for her and Katie to bring me a couple more pair to mend so I will try to get those done this week and the zipper put in Andy’s coveralls, now that we have gotten the snow and cold he is going to need the extra pair.

She looks so happy lol

The fiber basket.

I got Joleens hat done, I want to make another with a heaver yarn and in black so going to try to get that done this week, Also want to get some spinning done and work on the afghan.

    I am curious about your daycare. I have thought a lot about that where I live, because it is such short supply, but the regulations are burdensome. how do you handle it?

      I am not licensed, when I first started I called about getting licensed and they were out of the paperwork so she told me just do it if there is a problem do it latter,that was 13 years ago. All my parents know we live in a small community so most of my kids are from family’s I know. If you do decide to do it let me know I will try to help, give a few pointers and send a copy of my contract if you would like.
      Have a great day
