March 1

The  weather this year is different, hardly any winter snow or cold. Did manage to go hiking  everyday for almost a week.
 Now it is cold and snowy again, and I am missing my hikes.
I have got a couple books read, and a few more things off my list of stuff I never get time for.
Can't wait for daylight savings time to start, longer days are so nice.
I suppose it is time to put my snowman decorations away, till winter. But it just seems too early yet to get out the Easter decorations.
I don't decorate for St. Patrick's day, so the house will be rather bare till Easter is closer than it is now.
Just looked outside and it looks like a blizzard out there..Good thing is it is supposed to warm up again in a few days, so probably won't need to do any shoveling.

January projects

Well we have gotten almost to the end of January. I surprised myself and got a  lot more done this month than I thought I would. Finished my to do list for the month except for one items, and I still have today yet to start it.
It has been a funny year so far...warmer than most winters started out, not all that much snow as of yet. Had one day where it almost hit 45 degrees....everything melted. Now we have about an inch of snow on the ground.
Since it has been warmer than usual, I have gotten some sewing and embroidering done that I normally would not do until it got warmer. My machines do not like the cold and they are on outside walls, and we do not keep the heat above 62 during the winter.
Spent the last few days, organizing  all the 2016  pictures on my laptop into folders, and then saved them all elsewhere and deleted them all from the computer..it only clutters up the computer to have all them on there.
Did the same thing with the emails, got them down to a nice manageable number under 200.
Now to clean off all the temporary files and clean up other stuff I do not need on the computer.
Got my sewing room reasonably cleaned... well good enough that I can see the floor again and I have room to work on projects.  When I need more space, I will do more cleaning.

January Dreary Weather

Christmas was fun, and now everything is back the way it was before the decorations went up. It was so nice to have the house decorated, so festive. But now it is time to get back to work.
It would be so nice if the weather were better, though I guess I should not complain. At least we do not have to shovel rain!
But some sun would be nice, and it would also be nice if this rain did not freeze on the way down and make everything like a skating rink.
  All the snow that we did get is now all dirty looking not that pretty white snow of winter. Actually it looks more like late March out there than January. I know the cold and snow will be back and then it will time to shovel again.
But sun on new fallen snow is so pretty......
I guess since it is yucky out is would be a good time to do an early spring clean, so I can actually go outside and enjoy spring instead of cleaning then. Long as I am stuck in the house anyway.
