I did manage to get up at a decent hour today but have done next to nothing. Kinda normal for me tho and Monday too boot. I think my mind crashes after weekends. The guys are home on weekends and when someone is in the house I cant seem to get anything done that I want to do. Seems as soon as one meal is done they are looking for another one. So I started my day with the usual house cleaning. I even went as far as to clean the showers in both bathrooms. Of all the things to clean I hate cleaning showers most of all. But the task is done now. Then I got to thinking while I was cleaning. Yeah I know, I think too much. I was thinking of how much easier it would be to keep the house cleaner if we didn't have carpet. Now I am thinking in spring I might see if its possible to take out the carpet and put down tile or maybe even wood floors. I would be happy with the prefinished hard wood floors. Then I would have no need to be running the vacuum every day. Just run a dust mop and a damp mop if needed. Carpet is really dirty stuff and hard to keep clean. We shall see what spring holds for us.
I have been lookin thru the new seed catalogs that come in. I still am determined to order only heirloom varieties and just from Baker Creek seeds. I also want to make a bed here near the house just to plant a few plants of everything I want to save seeds from. That would be real handy for things that take 2 years to make seed. I just have to see if I can talk someone into hauling dirt for me to make the bed. But I also need a strawberry bed here near the house too. That might be pushing my luck a bit. I am so ready for spring. Really tired of being in the house now. Haven't been off the farm in going on 3 weeks. If more of the ice melts tomorrow and we don't get more snow I might make it out of here by Wednesday. Just have to wait and see.
Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
