I know you’re probably wondering why I haven’t written for so long. Funny thing is that I think about writing everyday and sometimes even feel guilty because I cannot. I’ve got lots of ideas to write about too. I can easily say I’m never at a loss for words.
The thing is that Brian and I are in the middle of our busiest season right now. His BIG project is painting the exterior of our house. This project is long overdue and Brian continues to spend his time prepping – scraping, grinding, replacing wood, re-glazing windows, replacing windows, patching stucco, priming.
I, on the other hand, get to do all the other stuff we do in the spring, all by myself, like the back breaking hand tilling of the vegetable garden, planting vegetables, planting annuals, spring cleaning the house, pruning bushes, and any assignment Brian doles out that will help him keep our hugest project moving forward.
I spent this past weekend, scraping paint off the front porch floor. This is less exciting than watching paint dry, and my hands are sore. AND, since I’m not done, I get to do this again next weekend.
The ultimate look we are going for is an English Country Cottage. Hopefully, in the next several weeks we will finish. And, then we can move on to some of the other 50 gazillion projects on our to-do list.
Living simply is a lot of hard work!
