We've had the loveliest weather this week, with several days in the high 60's and even 70's - in mid-December. Hubby and I have been working on the foundation and floor for our recycled shed and have it nearly finished now. It's exciting to see progress.
There's a lot of work going on here. Much of it is small tasks that aren't worthy of mention, others are big like the floor of the big shed. I can't remember when I last went to bed at night without hurting; my muscles are sore and my joints hurt. But there is so much to do and so little time to do it before bad weather arrives. I'm thankful that winter has been late this year, and in the meantime I'm using a homemade cayenne salve for the pain.
I've mulched the perennials (roses, comfrey, walking onions, garlic and so on). I didn't get the cold frame finished for use over-winter, but I'll keep working on it. I plan to have it ready for early spring planting.
One thing I miss about the holidays now that our children are grown is going to see Christmas light displays. (I miss music programs too, but that's another story.) Hubby and I took an evening off and went out to dinner, then to a nearby town's light display. It was a simple outing but I enjoyed it so much.
