Snow What?

Monday, April 6-Snow day. What is wrong with this picture? We all had to bring out big bulky WINTER coats again. I cannot even begin to tell you what dislike that stirred up in my soul!! I am right smack dab in the midst of enjoying SPRING and do not care to have that interrupted with snow. Hopefully, this was Jack Frost's last hurrah with our neck of the woods. Here are some of the other fun things that happened today:
  • Watched 7 pounds. Whew! Not what I expected. I like Will in les complicated movies. It's good, very good. Watched City of Ember. Good, it was not anywhere near as good as the series of books...but then, they never are. Watched Step Brothers. I wish I could get that time back. Will Ferrell, Elf is the only good movie you have ever been in. Stop with the goofy trash mouth movies. Who is the audience you are seeking???????? I watched these movies for $3 VIA the red box. Oh my, 24 hour movie rental for $1. Me likey. ALOT.
  • Hubby cleaned out the garage and we took several boxes of things to the Salvation Army. The clutter just keeps going and it feels very nice. I hope to shed many more pounds of clutter through this year. Even better than that though, I plan to not take on a bunch of replacement clutter.
  • Hubby and I disassembled the dishwasher and found the problem. $12.95 and the part should be here in 3-5 days. Do-it-yourself is really the only way to go. If only we could pump out our own septic tank (our next home necessity!!).
  • We have our new windows (winders here in the country) and they are awesome. I hope our utility bills reflect the improvement. We also have new gutters and the overall effect of our home now is....."You need to clean your siding immediately!!!" We will get a round tuit soon.
  • Started me some 'mater plants in my new jiffy tabletop "greenhouse". Also, 2 apple trees, 2 magnolias, and 6 okra plants. Purple okra from LBL's Homeplace 1850.

I'm very tired now. I was up very late last night trying to find a lost piece of paper. Never found it. So, I'm not there yet with the de-cluttering. I didn't claim to be-just doing better one trunk of stuff at a time.

The kids had to pull out their heavy coats this morning, too. Big disappointment after running around in shorts yesterday!

7 pounds is on our list to watch. Just haven't gotten around to renting it yet.

Yay to cheap parts! So much better than paying a repairman or replacing the unit!

New windows is on my list of things for my house. And new floors. New roof. New gutters.

One trunk at a time is much better than not doing it at all. That way you can say that you know that piece has been decluttered.

I hope the weather starts improving and stays there soon. I'm so ready for spring to be here full force!

Do you know about the free redbox movies on Monday's? There is always a code at

Just thought I would pass it along!

Let me know if you have questions

I love how one home improvement project always makes other parts of your home look like they need work, too. That's how I ended up with a new stove a few years ago-we remodeled most of the kitchen.

The first thing I did at the hotel yesterday morning was peek out the window to see if it was snowing. It was. Ticked me off. Most unhappy about wearing a coat again. This truly is the winter that won't give it up already.
