Weekly News

Winter is winding down here and I'm actually looking forward to getting my hands in the dirt. 
I didn't plant a large garden last year because I thought we would have moved sooner. Because of that, my family did not enjoy the benefits of that garden and I missed out on dirt therapy. 
But here I am a year later. So this year I am planting my heart out, even if our house is on the market. If we're not here to enjoy the harvest, the new owners will!
Construction Update
I was hoping to send this email sharing the good news that our house was finished, but that will have to be a future email. The recent rains have prevented us from our exterior painting. However, the good news is hubby is done with all of the construction on the house! YES!!!
Since we've had rain days, he decided to turn our garage back into a carport with a shop. He claims it will look nicer. We shall see, but I trust him. 
Wrapping up interior painting this week and then hopefully we'll get some sunny weather to finish painting outside. 

Southern' Sayin' Of The Week: 

" Life is good in the South, and it's just not the weather, it's the people"

Do you have a Southern Sayin to share? They crack me up!

Our goal is to invite you to join us from conception to completion and form a Community of like-minded people to share this adventure with.
