Happy New Year!

31 Dec

Happy New Year hd wallpaper 2015

Well, once again we find ourselves here on the eve of a new year. I like to look back on the past year and remember what has transpired as well as look forward to the new year. All in all, 2014 was a good year for Sweet Thing and me, although there has been some illnesses in my family that have kept me from getting much homestead work done lately, but that is just part of life I guess. I think it is time to bring out my list of resolutions from last year and brush off the cobwebs and just reuse it again for this year. After all, it is always the same old things isn’t it? I’m not any thinner, richer, wiser, nicer or more helpful so I can just look at last years list and scratch off the date and start again this year.

Oh, but I think I need to add one new resolution to my list. That would be to stop buying so much crap from Harbor Freight! Today I bought this multi-position ladder and this section of heavy-duty scaffolding. I am a little leery of the ladder when I get too high up, it feels a little shaky for comfort, but the scaffolding is really nice and sturdy. I have wanted both of them for a good while, but I really didn’t have any room in my barn for storage, but since I added on the new section I have plenty of room. I need to get to work enclosing the new washroom, but all those good college football games are on tomorrow so I will just have to put it off a while longer. Keep prepping everyone!

Christmas Tune:Jessica Simpson;I’ll Be home for Christmas

Only 2 more days until Christmas, I can almost hear those sleigh bells jingling can’t you? Tonight we have the final (24 different ones) version of this classic song performed by Jessica and a sailor from the USS Harry Truman, Petty Officer John Britt. While we are all atwitter getting ready for Christmas, how about we say a prayer for all the members of our military, especially those serving overseas who will not be home for Christmas this year. Merry Christmas and God bless Our Troops!
