Yet another super creative post title :)
It sums it up well though, we are getting really close to seed starting time, so I haven't started any big projects around here since my hands (and house) will be full by this time next week hopefully.
I splurged this year on a rolling cart for my lights and seed flats. I used one for a few years but it was icky and rusty from the shed so I have officially declared that it's not allowed in the house anymore. Last year I couldn't bring myself to spend the money and limped the operation along with some folding card tables I had and suspended the lights from the ceiling, it was pretty hideous. This year I got a great deal on a sale cart plus a $15 coupon so I took the plunge.
Finn insisted on putting it together. He did pretty well with daddy only helping when it got tall :)
There were 2 sizes available for the same price, one was nice and wide at 48" but no wheels and gosh, where the heck would I put it afterwards? The one I got is a manageable 24" wide, thicker gauge, has baskets and hooks, and wheels. No brainer for me, everyone knows my love of furniture on wheels! With this one the lights will hang over the sides a bit but it's only for 6-8 weeks, and afterwards this can become a nice canning or craft storage area that I will actually be able to park somewhere around here without being too cumbersome.
I'm not sure what got into my kids the other night, but they did a spectacular job of cleaning their room! I wish I had taken a "before" pic, there were legos everywhere... they are obviously fixin' to ask me for something of gargantuan proportion :)
Random: it's cold in this house! It's not that bad outside, high 40's - low 50's, but it's been damp and windy and I guess the crawlspace is really cold because I had to break out the Minnesota Girl Getup:
Random: in case you wondered, this is what a Free Ride looks like:
(I have tried photographing Sprocket the Rocket from every possible angle and the result is the same - you can't tell what you are looking at. Trust me, she's a dog.)
Random: Loch made the Honor Roll and Principal's List again, so we are very proud of him. (He's the one in the gray shirt with his hands in his pocket after I told him to not do that!)
You know what that means... more bumper stickers, just what I need!
Aren't they cute? He is going to get mad at me for posting that one :)
