Thankful Thursdays

I enjoy reading Tea With Tiffany. She writes a Thankful Thursday Blog every week. Here's the link. Take a look yourself. Maybe we should all do this more often.
It's a good thing. Oh, the picture is from my Thursday sunset. I was counting my blessings too.

Tax Rebates

Here's an idea:

Why don't we ask the States and Cities to give a tax rebate to stimulate the economy? We seem to always look to the Federal government for this, but why not those entities closer to home? Most states have an income tax, they for sure have a substantial sales tax, property tax, and if you get to looking at the bills and services coming in to be paid every month at your household, you'll find an array of other fees and taxes added onto your bills.

It's worth some conversation and consideration, don't you think?

Snow in Alabama

We don't get to see a lot of snow in Alabama. However, Saturday we had some. It wasn't as much as predicted and it didn't last long once is stopped falling, but I took some pictures. The unique sound of snow flakes falling and the chillness in the air made for a few moments of beauty as God strokes the canvas with a whisp of marshmallow. Sweet!

If you keep doing what you've always done, you'll keep getting what you've always gotten.

Or worse.

Think about it.

Measured Progress

There has been a week of progress made with the greenhouse. Bruce has run the electrical so I can run a heater and installed the lights, automated vent and bottom vents as well. We have a programable thermostat coming soon and an exhaust fan.

We've moved some plants into the greenhouse now and repotting projects are beginning and some rooted cuttings are going into pots. We had a couple of cold nights and things worked smoothly, all the ducks flying in formation and such like. Ah, breathe in deeply, it smells like a greenhouse. I have missed it.

Neat As A Pin

There are still vents, electrical and such to be added, but as you can see, she's a beautiful greenhouse!

Greenhouse Framing

Will worked like a trooper putting the rest of the framing together Wednesday. Are you wondering what those poles sticking up in the air are for? I'll have another picture for you soon to help the puzzle come together. We'll need a little warmer day to add the glazing sheets. It's coming together:)

Assembly Required

The Solexx Gardener's Oasis Greenhouse arrived in six boxes from The Greenhouse Catalog of Salem, Oregon. The site preparation and assembly process has begun. Yes, I am smiling.
