After a beautiful warmish week, even hitting +6°C on Saturday, the temperatures have taken a nose dive and I am back to hiding out in the house. Which is ok, 'cause there's still lots to do.
The house tends to get neglected from spring through fall, since summer is so short and there's so much to do!
The first part of winter we really push the school work- we always start late and of course feel like we're behind until about December. We also catch up on some much needed reading, computer time, and board games. Along comes January, and gosh, oh my! It's nearly time to start planting tomatoes!
So the real work of winter has begun. The fridge and the oven both got a proper scrubbing. Closets are getting cleaned out, the basement has been tidied.
Husband and the Bigs did some repairs to the desks and then installed a new top (plywood) to make the two desks (back to back) functional for four.

Bills to file, taxes to organize.
Sewing. I need to shorten the curtains in the sunroom, a blanket to finish, and all sorts of things to repair.
