My last post was June 2013. Kind of dropped off the face of the earth there, didn't I? All of a sudden life just got a little overwhelming to me. I found I wasn't spending time creating like I wanted to or working on my home or even working on myself. I missed blogging though, so I decided maybe I would try to get back in the habit. This time around I'm going to blog more for myself- to have a record of things I'm working on and thoughts I may be having as I go through my day to day life. Towards the end of my posting in 2013 my blog felt more like a job and less like something that I enjoyed doing. Blogging should be fun.
The summer of 2014 was busy. We worked more on cleaning up our land. We added some raised beds to our vegetable garden. I continued to work on my flower garden and trying to get the fence finished. The fence is still not finished-but it will get there eventually.
Half of our roof also needed major repairs this fall and has taken up an incredible amount of our time. There were multiple layers of old shingles that needed to come off with a million more nails in them than normal. Part of the roof was rotted underneath and that wood had to be replaced. We are still not completely finished with that project-but the end is getting closer all the time and hopefully the shingles will be on before the snow flies. I'm tired and sore from all of it-but grateful that my husband and I are still able to do hard work like this because it would have cost us at least 3 or 4 times more than it is if we had hired someone after all of the surprises we have found. Anyhow- hopefully I'll start to get back to regular blogging again- I really missed it and a lot of my friends that I have met through blogging. If Donna is reading this- thank you for being so sweet and checking up on me. I look forward to visiting your blog to catch up soon ♥
