and just like that, it's been a week

Actually, over a week since I last posted here. I love my blog, but somehow, my busy schedule of reading others' blogs just doesn't leave enough time for actually writing here. Go figure.

Anyway, I haven't been a total sloth. I'm working on a little knitted gift that I shan't reveal here until it's been presented (I'd hate to give away a secret like that), as well as continued work on the house and garden. Unfortunately, every step forward necessitates two steps back.

I planted some bare root roses, but then it snowed and I couldn't finish the rest of them.
Mr Deplume started the arduous task of removing the lava rock from along the side of the house, but there's so much dirt and other stuff in there, it's going to be a very long, slow process.

I started to fix the doors on the front porch, but they were in such disrepair that after a couple of hours working on them, I just removed them altogether. WE've decided that this was a sign that we ought to just remove the porch's windows and revert it back to a proper front porch. (I'm struggling now not to just start demolition willy nilly.)

Since it's a little cold and muddy out, I have to settle for laundry duty today. It's not nearly as fun as crow bars and hammers.


  1. You can be a total sloth if you want to! I'm working on not feeling guilty when I don't feel like cooking, cleaning, or even posting on my blog... life's too short to spend it feeling guilty over little stuff. I think you need to go laze around somewhere now. I'm going to do the same.

  2. I've got rose plans too, this year. I've never been interested in roses before but the idea descended on me and now I can't get it out of my head. Sadly, I have much bigger gardening eyes than gardening ability so we'll see if this works out or not...
