Today is the last day of our Spring Break. It didn't feel like much of a vacation since we didn't go anywhere, but we did get plenty of work done at the house. The garden still needs one gate put up, then we're ready to plant the 6 fruit trees I bought in town last week. We had the South Albany baseball team up for dinner Wednesday night since they were in town for a tournament. It was good to see some old, familiar faces! Andy was able to install a new water softener/filter and my shower has stayed white for 6 days now! We have so much iron in the water that I had been scrubbing the tubs & toilets every 2-3 days, so this is a huge improvement. The contractor had a crew here on Friday to start the new dormer/utility/mudroom addition. We had 2 inches of snow that day, so they had to quit and will come back this week to get the dormer on and room framed. Andy will be finishing the new utility/mudroom this spring. We've been missing a big mudroom! Andy's mom and step-dad were here Saturday and headed home this morning after a quick trip to bring back my regular tires. It was a productive break, but I'm not feeling rested :) Looking forward to getting back into the routine of school again. April will be a busy month with more company coming, youth basketball, and outside projects planned. I ordered grapes, berries & plants so we'll be busy with planting as the weather warms up. It will be nice to have a big garden & orchard!
