House Hunting

My boyfriend has decided that he wants to stop paying rent, and instead start paying a morgage. We’ve gone out a couple times to look at houses so far and have only found one that we’ve both really liked. Unfortunately someone else out bid us on it so we are back to the drawing board.

With the amount of money we can afford, we’re finding most of the houses are smaller than we want. For me, it’s all about the layout. Two houses can be the same size, but the layout can make one house feel a lot bigger.

If we don’t find something soon that we like, the search is going to take a break for the winter because we really don’t want to move when its cold. It’s not like were in a rush to find something so we will wait until we find the house that is right for us.


The weather network was calling for 20 degrees today so I got dressed in my shorts and waited for the sun to come out. I had hoped to sit in the sun for a while today and finally get some things planted in my garden.

But the sun never really came out. It was overcast all day. I decided to walk out to the garbage bin to gage the temperature and decided it was warm enough to get some stuff done.

Last year my garden didn’t grow anything. So this year I decided to get rid of some of the dirt and put in new dirt. I found lots of earth worms so I figured that was a good sign. I didnt dig up as much dirt as I planned on, so hopefully it was enough.

I got a bunch of seeds planted and I also transplanted my aloe plant. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen the little visitor that also liked my Aloe.

I really hope that my seeds grow this year. I would love to see more life in my little garden other than weeds.
