Spring on the Homestead!

Well hello!

One would think that not having a full time job would give me more time to write, but in fact its quite the opposite.  Funny how one can get writers block the moment you have time!

BUT, Spring is finally here (in the calendar sense), and I am very eager to get back into the swing of all things life!  And to me, writing is life for me.  If I am not typing something, I’m writing into a book.  And I have so much on my mind, that it’s really impossible to put it all into one post.

But enough of that.  So, what’s going on at this homestead?

Well, the weather thankfully has moved from the high 70’s to mid 80’s with nighttime sleeping with the windows open.  One of the best things about Spring is the scents.  Magnolias, fresh cut grass, hyacinths and many more are sweeping through the air and coming into my windows.  Especially during vespers, the scents become almost intoxicating!  And there is nothing more dreamy for me than to open all the windows and doors.

Sadly, I live with 3 men who don’t like opening anything!  My front door has a glass pane and because the door is fairly old, getting a screen insert has been impossible to find.  Our side door is a big wood and glass door, with no way to use inserts.  There is no screen door to go with it. I always kept the back door open, but the fear of bugs coming into the house causes lots of disharmony when they are home.  Over the last several weeks I opened the Magic Screen and purchased a screen all by itself with velcro where you can attach the screen. So, yesterday while my son was nursing his tooth extractions (he had to have a couple removed for his braces), I put both screens up.  It didn’t take long for the complaints to begin, but both screens are in place, so that’s a big win over here!!!!

I am also excited to tell you that we are getting a window put in our kitchen!

See, when we first moved in, we knew this would eventually have to do this, as one of the owners from long ago put on an addition to our home, and unfortunately they did it off the kitchen, leaving no light in our kitchen.  I personally don’t like it.  It’s way too dark in there, and let me tell you, when all you crave is light and life, the last place you want to be in is where it’s dark.  I have been waiting to get this done, but our builder can’t do it until we get out of this cold, rainy season.  So, we were hoping for a mid-April date, but now it looks like it’s going to be May.  Either way, I’m getting morning sun soon!  And that’s going to be GLORIOUS!  Yay for light!  Yay for spring breezes!!!

I am currently trying to learn how to edit videos…I have always been somewhat savvy in different software, so when I bought Wondershare’s Filmora© I made the wrong assumption this was going to be quick and easy.

Oy.  Let’s just say I’m feeling things out, and hopefully I will be able to produce more video blogs.

Hope all is well!
