The Root Cellar

Happy March! And I sure hope you February rocked as well. I know I haven't been updating much lately. There's not much exciting happening around these parts other than winter. Cold. Snow. Slick driveway. Let's just say I tend to become a hermit over the winter. And I really believe SAD is a real thing! 

The chickens are getting coop fever. They can get out on a path I shoveled, but they're bored. The dog lays around and sleeps all day. The kids really need aired out. The forecast has some warmer temps coming up and I couldn't be more thrilled. 

We have a few projects we've been working on. Namely some basement projects! When we built the house, we knew we wanted a root cellar. What's the point of growing a lot of good food if you don't have a place to put it? So, Dan recently put in some shelving. Let's just say it made a huge difference. He had some big plans for his wine storage in there as well, but this helped us majorly clean things up. Now, just to see those jars filled with food!

He also framed up a storage closet. The pictures aren't terribly exciting, so I won't bore you :-) Our next big project is the kids bedroom. We are getting some bunk beds this weekend and have some major closet organization planned. I guess there's more going on than I thought! 

Check back this week and I'll show you the curtains I sowed up as well as tell you what happened to Rex Roo!
