Happy Homemaking!I hope you had a happy and productive week on the homefront. I sure did. Things are starting to come together around here and that is very exciting.
For starters, my hubby Jerry made great progress on his first tough job for our little fixer-upper. He removed old drafty glass sliding doors and a large window. The job turned out to be a bit bigger than we expected as there was pretty significant termite damage, but he has made repairs and everything is all walled in. Ready for drywall and cosmetics inside the house.
I was really impressed by how much changing out that old door for newer better insulated ones increased the temperature inside.
Today, he is back at work replacing more old single pane giant windows upstairs.
That man amazes me.
I am not gifted with his strength or construction skills, but I can hold my own in a pile of dirt so I spent a few sunny afternoons this week tilling and prepping a few flower/vegetable garden beds right in front of the house...
Silly maybe, but there's incredible soil here and I just can't waste it.
As I type this post, he is leveling a place for me to have a small garden this season in the backyard.
This morning, he built me two 16' long raised bed boxes. Woohoo!
Now we need to work on a temporary greenhouse... it seems that we're going to put those old single pane windows and doors to good use afterall.
Well, that's what we've been up to on our little homestead this week.

May this next week bring you joy and happiness and find you busy in projects too.
