I wish we could tell a month ahead of time what the weather was going to bring. I'm not sure if we want to buy more wood for the wood stove. Its a lot cheaper to burn wood than it is to turn up our furnace for gas. To have it delivered you must buy a minimal of four cord and we don't want that much hanging around here all summer long waiting for the next cold season to get here.

My husband has been working on salt water aquarium. He has found out that it is very time consuming and also a very costly project. When setting up a salt water aquarium you get very anxious to put fish in too soon. It can be your biggest mistake ever. If they aren't very hardy fish they probably won't survive if the aquarium isn't established yet.

We are thinking about switching the living room around a bit. Its been about three years and I'm getting bored with it. Where the TV is now its on a low stand so you can't use the reclining and be comfortable on viewing the TV from this position. So a new tv stand with mount is the first step to our project. Hopefully I can talked my husband into replacing the rug at the same time.
On our many yard sale searches a couple of years ago we stumbled acrossed the deluxe set of Lincoln logs. My husband said it was nice to find those for our little boy to have something just like his dad did growing up. Our little guy may not play with them everyday but a couple of times a month he likes dumping the box out and building a log cabin or two.
When work was slow in the early eighties my husband took his work truck and his two lead guys and took off for North Carolina. A lot of times over the years my husband has had to go where the work is for a carpenter. Before he started work he sought the assistance of a business lawyer raleigh nc. Its always good to make sure everything is legal. In my husband's case incorporating was the best thing to do and the best way to do it was to seek professional help.

My husband finally got our 46 gallon aquarium up and running with our new salt water fish. It's so exciting. The aquarium is so HD. The fish are so bright and colorful. We've gone as far as to name everybody in there that way if there is any trouble at least we all know which one we are talking about.

It seems like years ago we had bought a new washer and dryer. They were so dependable. We sold them still working after fifteen years. They were getting old looking. I just wanted to update to something nicer looking. It was less than two years and I had to call for appliance service. Apparently my son's small sock somehow lodged its way up under the agitator on the washing machine causing it to break.
I thought that we would get through the winter with our 8 cords of wood. Burning the wood in our wood stove saves lots of money when it comes to gas for our furnace. Fifty dollars worth of wood heat is like one hundred dollars worth of gas heat the way way that we figured it. Hopefully we figured right.
