Dark January Days


Well, we lucked out in terms of snowfall – only a little snow yesterday morning and then the rain came in and washed it all away.

It has been dark though – dark and dreary and not the kind of days to fill a person with energy.

I think I can tell in the afternoon that the days are increasing in length; even those few minutes are welcome to see!



This is this weekend’s project. It won’t be as dramatic a change as the upstairs bathroom was, as it had already been somewhat updated a few years ago with a new vanity and mirror. It still has the old floor though. So replacing that will give it a nice fresh look.

This is the last makeover we have to do. After this we just have to paint the downstairs office and put new shelving in a couple of closets. Then, our major job after that will be a lot of cleaning out and pitching stuff. Even with all the cleaning out we have already done, we have more to go through.

We do have a little fun coming up this weekend. Last year, we gave our niece Hannah a shopping excursion for her Christmas gift. We all enjoyed it so much we did it again this year. So we will be heading to Albany on Sunday to enjoy some clothes shopping. I will try to remember to bring my camera this time! Open-mouthed smile

Have a great day everyone!


  1. I am so envious of your planning in advance. Just think, we had not even considered a motorhome until a year and a half ago! Then didn't decide to full time until recently. We have given up on setting a departure goal. We are just keepin on keepin on.

  2. I hear ya on those dark January days...will be glad when they are gone. Good luck on getting the new flooring installed.

  3. I love your banner photo. Reminds of a trip we did in 2008 to the Finger Lakes area. Are you near there?
