The time has come… finally!

We are beginning the work on the house this weekend!

When he gets off work Beloved will go rent the power washer or sand blaster to strip the old paint off the house.

We are also working on getting the yard cleared and ready for our… new yard tractor! After months of thinking, saving, and other research Beloved picked out a Husqvarna which is as I type arriving in my driveway!

She is a beauty.
This afternoon ds and stbdil and I will work on putting in the raised bed garden. 
I will be taking some pictures this afternoon, of the garden progress, and what the house looks like now. I am so glad the time has arrived to begin the work!

Oh yes… Beloved also did some shopping last week end…. I am now the proud owner of a
Kitchen aid! A Red one even!
Here it is on amazon:
I am sooooooooooooo excited! We got ours at HEB. It was on clearance.  I have wanted one of these for years and never would allow myself to spend the money. Beloved saw it as we were looking for the ice tea makers and said you are getting this! So she came home with us and I used her for the first time last night. I think I am in love. 

He also purchased Family Tree Maker Deluxe 2010 for me. Also a book I have wanted for years. 
A Patriots History of the United States. I am looking forward to reading this one. I love history!

He definitely spoiled me. Plus getting the house worked on is something I have only dreamed of for years. 

Well I need to get back to home keeping. There is as always laundry to do and dishes to wash and dusting to be done. Plus today there will be gardening!
Before I go, in other exciting news… DS got a job! He has not gotten his ours yet, they are waiting on his drug test results. He is going to be trained for a tech spot at Office Depot! 

Meanwhile other ds is being tested to become and on site tech. That means travel! He wants to travel so that is a good thing!
Have an awesome day ladies!

  1. Whoo Hoo Mel….All good things happening at your homestead. So excited for you. A Husqvarna for your beloved and a Red Kitchen Aid for you dear one…..Blessed, Blessed, Blessed!!!! Wonderful news about the boys! God is so faithful! Can't wait to see the garden pics.
    Hugs, Ella

  2. Love the mixer! I have a cheap version and while I like it, I don't LOVE it. I think it's because it doesn't work as well as the real deal. Some day I'd like to have a real kitchen aid.
    I love history too. Let me know how you like the patriot book, I might want to get it too!

  3. I am so, so happy for you, Mel! So, what have you named her (your Kitchen Aid)? I really like mine. I don't have any of the special attachments for it yet, but would like to start 'collecting' those soon.

    Congratulations on your riding lawn mower. I absolutely have a blast tootling around on mine on the Farmstead. That, with my little utility trailer hooked to the back, has proven to be an invaluable asset.

    And, I'm *dying* to see some garden pictures! We've been busy with our plots here. Hope to (need to) do some planting this week, but the weather hasn't been exactly cooperative.
