In Maine, we leave our wreaths up until July for the most part!

My Martin Luther King wreath is still hanging by the back porch door. Then it's going to be the Valentine wreath, the Easter wreath....you get the idea. By September they come the Fire Starter wreath.

(seriously - it's going on the burn pile as soon as I wade through all this snow to get there)

It's 48 here right now. Woohoo!! So, my girls decided it was "FREEZING" out and dug out their snow boots that we had bought for our trip up last spring. They just came running in, tracking dirt and sand with every step all the way across the tile from the back door to the kitchen - not an easy thing for this obsessive floor sweeper to see!!!

So, do ALL houses up there come equipped with handy-dandy mud rooms? Please say yes......another thing I've only ever seen on TV and in magazines. I would love to buy one of those cute benches with the storage under the seat. But mainly, I'd love to confine the mud to.....well.....the room that was intended to contain it!

No mud room on my house yet. It was supposed to be done this year but then there's the pesky problem at the mill and not knowing for sure if Steve would have a job...

It's 5* now. 40*'s this weekend.

Default Uh ohhhhhhh.........

While I was in the shower the delivery truck came with the insulation. Seventeen rolls of insulation. He didn't bother to knock on the door to ask where to unload 17 rolls of insulation. I know this because the dogs would have barked. Look where he put them.


The plow goes on my Blazer. The insulation is between them. I'm kind of laughing over this. When Steve comes home in a couple of hours he's going to come through the door muttering words like "dumb ass." I'm going to have to listen to him mutter off and on all the way to Lee Academy and back. It's not funny but then again, it is. WHO the hell does something stupid like this?? It's a good distraction. I can sit here looking out the window at this minor problem instead of writing the column that's due tomorrow.
