I am so happy today. The construction guys are putting in all new grass sod. Last year they put in sidewalks and curbs. I know our property value has gone up. That is a good thing.
I just got through talking to our fairly new neighbors. They bought the house for their son. He had a job over at the railroad but got laid off. He got into a lot of trouble so they decide to keep the house for themselves and just use it on the weekends. I asked him for his cell phone incase something happens to the house when they aren't around. He just showed me the inside of it and it is so adorable. We tried to get my mother in law to buy it and move out this way but she still loves the big city.
I finally shut off the heat for good today. I don't think we are going to get anymore below freezing but you never know since I live in Illinois and that can happen here. I am not going to plant my vegetables plants just yet. I might in a few more weeks. I had to repot the cucumbers already because they were outgrowing the starter pots. I am getting so exciting this year because I am going to start to learn how to can my tomatoes and also make tons of salsa and put them in jars. I want to have salsa all year round.
My neighbor to the left of us plants these great big sunflowers. They are so Big. I have to ask him what his secret is. I am going to take a picture of them and put it in my journal so I can show everyone.
I am off to go outside and repot my spider plant that is getting out of control.
