Snow! Snow! Snow!!

This is our first snow storm in our new home and location and man do they get alot of snow here. I don't think I have ever seen so much snow in my own backyard EVER!! I have gotten well  over a foot over snow and it's making its way on to two feet!
                          This is the picture of my backyard two days ago there is even more snow now!

I love the way our property looks in the snow, I almost forgot what our house looks like without the snow. Right now though I have major cabin fever; I finished putting all the Christmas decorations away, did all the laundry, tackled the linen closet that was holding junk and am running out of things to do inside.  I wish I had bought paint before the storm hit; I could have repainted my whole masterbedroom and bathroom by now!! *note to self buy project supplies ahead of time before storm hits.

Our Asa bear (our chocolate lab) is however loving the snow! We got Asa four Christmas's  ago during another winter snow storm when he was just a little over 6 week; we took him out to play/potty constantly throughtout the day and night so he has became a Snow dog!! He becomes a completely different dog when it snows.
                                     Our Asa Bear stoping long enough to pose for the camera!

Running and leaping in the snow, he's not very graceful with his stopping skill yet.

My first blog entry

Hello Everyone!

I decided it was time for me to start a blog of my own. I've been greatly enjoying reading others blogs over the years and now that I bought my own house I figured it was time for me to start documenting the progress and improvements we gradually make to both the house and the property.

I grew up in the country with lots of apple trees, a huge plum tree I use to climb and my favorite a red barn. It has always been my dream to move back to the country. On September 23rd 2011, my boyfriend Dean and I finally accomplished my dream. We went from living in a 800sq ft. apartment to a 1700+sq ft. house on 2acres!! Our chocolate lab Asa is absolutely in love, though he still isn't sure about the deers that come into our back yard. Tomorrow I plan on posting some pictures!

Thanks for stopping by!!
