I feel like I have not been home in days. Sunday I was out of the house all day. The past couple of evenings I have had to be out. I have been looking forward to this evening all week. I got to come straight home after work. It was heaven. I came home, put on my sweats, hugged my doggie for a while, baked brownies, had leftovers for dinner and puttered around the cozy cottage and garden. It was so nice to have an ordinary evening. Liesl was loving it too, and made sure that belly rubs were included on the evening's agenda.
Now that I am employed again, I am back to thinking about all of the projects I want to get done on the house. After a very chilly winter, I have been considering a fireplace. I was thinking about the gas ones that you can start with a remote control. However, I was watching HGTV the other day and they were talking about the warmth you can get from the ethanol fireplaces. These fireplaces are relatively inexpensive, still have a real flame, do not need venting and are somewhat easy to install. I am giving it serious thought.
I am also thinking about the gardening that I need to do. I really want to make it beautiful back there. Unfortunately, I have an abundance of weeds and gophers right now. I am hoping the gophers will move on to greener pastures, so to speak. The weeds are going to take being pulled by hand, inch by inch. I have a somewhat large yard so I see Tylenol and a heating pad in my future...
It was so nice to be home tonight. It is so nice to think about what I would like to do with the house. I feel blessed with having my home, and that I have choices in it. I loved being home tonight and look forward to more evenings like this one. Life is good!
