Happy Monday! We’re undergoing the local annual deluge up here in northern Wisconsin, so I thought I’d share some pictures from the gorgeous, sunny taste of summer we had the last couple of weeks.
It’s been slow to warm up, but anything above freezing is a win and anything above 40F means PLAY OUTSIDE.
We’re finally starting to see some green on the trees again. Little man here isn’t the only one who was getting used to it!
But it’s also fire season up here, so we’ll take all the rain we can get. While those of you south of us are contending with daily tornado warnings, we’re on high alert for forest fires. (Lots of sirens either way!)
In other news, I got a freezer!
That may not sound all that exciting at first but leaving our deep freezer behind when we moved up here was a matter of necessity, not so much choice.
Having a dedicated freezer is HUGE in keeping our food costs down, which in turn aids our quest to pay off the mortgage this year. (I haven’t mentioned it since New Year’s, but it’s still our big-enough-to-make-it-outlandish goal for 2015.)
We also scored a pretty awesome desk for $10 on Craigslist that’s now doing triple duty: desk, TV stand, and toy display shelf.
So happy soggy Monday to you all. Have a great week!
