Not exactly the type of project I was planning on undertaking, but necessary and exciting all the same.

The (nearly devastating) bunk bed nightmare of a girlfriend prompted our debunking. (Praise God, He is good!) Little Mister now has an even bigger Big Boy bed. And Little Miss is thinking thoughts of draping canopies of gauze- Princess Style - to fill the newly vacant air above her bed.

While I never worried about the safety of the beds...blissful ignorance to be feels right to have two big kid rooms. Big kid beds. No worries. Now every playing surface is 2 1/2 feet aff (above finished floor - shout out to the chapter on hold) or lower. As long as no one is playing on top of a dresser. Hmmmm. Something new to worry about, I suppose. Perhaps today will be one of anchoring all furnishings.

I've been bitten

I have been bitten by the crafting bug. Little rascal. I have got to figure out something to pour this new energy into...before I start tearing down wallpaper or some other expensive project. I need something small...something cheap...something fun, and quick, and FUN!

I've enjoyed a little taste of Spring, but have been made aware of the weekend's forecast. Winter, Winter, and more Winter. At least until the following weekend.

I'm not sure how safe my pocketbook will be if I'm cooped up with all this creative energy. This could be a very fun weekend.

Spring is in the air

This week has been a respite for my soul. Spring's light is shining at the end of Winter's tunnel. I have begun mentally planting and positioning new additions to my gardens. My personal archive of Martha Stewart Living catalogs have been dangerously inspirational.

I know that I want to incorporate vegetables and herbs into the floral schematic somehow or another. I'm trying to visualize attractive rabbit and squirrel barriers. I find myself daydreaming through naptime.

It's nearly time to plant starters indoors...but what will those starters be?
