A lion or a lamb?

I am not sure if March will arrive like a lion or a lamb but the last day of February has arrived and I am working right on schedule. I have projects to list or re-list every few days for the month of March.

March has always seemed to be a long month for me.  I am not sure if it is because February is so short or because  there are 31 days in March.  In the past it seems that the budget just goes out the window.  Well this year I have set my mind to keeping the budget and progressing right on into April with a surplus.

There are so many things to look forward to in this coming month.  We have a friend who has been building a school in Haiti for the last six months that will be returning back home to stay.  They have finished their part of the school finally and it is ready for the next stages of constructions. His family and my youngest son spent their Christmas holiday working on the project and all are excited to see this completion.  Spring break is just around the corner.  The boys will be coming home for the week or at least part of it.  I do miss the kids being is really quiet without them. Oh and of course we have St. Patrick's Day. It has always been a fun holiday for this family.  One of the special things we would do is have green eggs and ham for breakfast.  Great way to start the day. 

So no matter if March arrive like a lion or a lamb it is going to be a great month.  Until next time have a blessed day.

February is moving right along. Even with all of the freezing temperatures, my projects are progressing well. We had to take time to work on a busted line from the water well. I really like the modern luxury of having running water to the house. I am not sure I would have made it well in the pioneer days of hauling water but then I would have never known the difference.  I guess we become accustomed to the life in which we live. I have always considered myself a survivor and creative enough to make things work, so maybe I would have made it OK.

I have several complete projects except for the photos. That will be my first project for this weekend. My new projected listing date in starting March 1st. What a great way to start spring. I know it doesn’t officially start then but by my calendar or wishful thinking it is spring time.
