I realize that I am a day late, but seeing as meal plans are some of my most popular posts, I figured they should not be messed with, so this recently post is getting posted a day late.
In the beginning of the month I was able to get outside for a short stint to build a fire pit in our backyard, only for it to be hailed and snowed on shortly there after (we are talking hours people). That polar vortex was no joke. I was outside in sandals in the morning only to be bundled under blankets watching snow come down that afternoon. The next few days were filled with more snow, and storms causing power outages, trees to come down and lots of damage to homes and buildings around us. It was not so fun.
The poor weather did force me to get a bunch of stuff done inside however, including some decorating and even more purging. I really need to have a garage sale soon. There is so much to get rid of.
As month rolled by the days warmed up. I was able to get some of the cooler weather seeds into the ground (think peas, arugula, kale, radish, lettuce etc.) and my early spring flowers have started to bloom in full. I’m loving the early bursts of color!! I’ll be posting more garden stuff soon. So hold tight.
During my super inspiring trip to Philly Chuck and his dad got a solid start on our fancy new deck. I can’t even tell you how excited I am for this to be done. It is going to be a huge addition to our home and really make our lifestyle that much more feesable. Seriously we are outdoor people after all.
In addition to my trip to PA, Chuck and I made it out to NH for family stuff, and a big party for a friends 30th birthday.
It’s been an intense and busy month, but we made it through and I’m looking forward to more spring fun!
