In the Works

BD6CTNZJQEB8 I surprised a friend the other day by revealing that I am a multi-project person.  My head is constantly filled with plans. It drives Alex bonkers sometimes and I have been accused of not being spontaneous, but that's just who I am.  I can't help it - I like having things to look forward to.

Here are just a few things in the works at Hound central:

  • Installing and learning to use wood stove
  • Painting living room and upstairs landing
  • Removing deck, building backyard stairs
  • Building two or three new garden beds in deck vacated area
  • Making a stone patio
  • Deciding on which kind and age of chickens
  • Building a coop for said birdies
  • Hosting garden tours
  • Planning workshops for spring equinox, container building, jam making
  • Spring break vacay to Chincoteague
  • August Canada canoe trip
  • And, of course, the ever present FINISH the kitchen (only trim and we're done!)

I think it's good to scheme in the winter.  My next Grow Your Garden post will be all about planning a  new garden.  There isn't much real work to be done now, so it's the perfect time to read, study, and make plans.
