Still no snow on the ground, so this past weekend I decided to get the red pavers down on the north end of the garden area. After the paver base was laid, installed all the pavers so most of the patio area is covered. It will still need some leveling out but that can wait until spring. Also found a easy way to build a portable grill using cinder blocks. Found this in Mother Earth News so if you want inexpensive, this is the way to go.
Plan on painting the tv room and/or dining room ceilings this Thursday. Hopefully Laurie will help out and maybe we can get the gray-blue color hidden under the light orange color we both like so much. It reminds us of Berres Brothers, our favorite coffee roaster in Watertown.
Garage door was repaired when it failed this past Friday. It certainly isn't cheap to repair, but this entry level starter condo was all we could afford. Now we are picking up the pieces when something breaks. Not sure if we can find a small plot of land, but would really like to build my own and make it the way I want it. Also too many restrictions because of the association we have to listen to. Dear Lord, please help me find an affordable quarter acre of land near where we live so we don't have so far to move. Thanks Lord for hearing my prayers and answering them. I look forward to how you will solve this dilemma.
Also thinking about the plants I want in the berm area. Two mounds of squash along fence, new girl tomatoes, transplant rhubarb in front of door, move perennials to around rocks. Hopefully the asparagus will still be alive and viable for growing. Edible flowers Johnny jump up for salad, kale, lettuce (under cold frame). Will edit as other vegetables are added to the garden.
