December 28th in Northern Maine

This has been the weirdest year for weather. Today it was 48 degrees and raining. I can't believe how nice it was. I cleaned up my front porch and am so glad I got to do that. However tonight the wind howled and the temp has dropped to 7. Seven degrees? Seriously it is an icy mess out there.

Just a little bit of water out there.
I finished my doors for my hutch and put the windows in. I put them back on as it was easier than trying to putty the holes from the hinges and storing the doors. I actually really like it, especially with the clear glass.
Now just to find the perfect new hardware.
Oh and last but so not the least I got a wonderful present in the mail. My dear friend Patti from Raspberry Lane Primitives sent me a Christmas box full of such great things. OH and she added Sweet Annie. Lots of it. The lady at the post office was bringing it to me and I could smell it coming. I LOVE the smell of that stuff.
The grungy candle, The gingerbread man, the ornament in front of the candle, The tall candle (which is actually made out of fabric), and the snowman with his bundle of candy canes and sweet annie. it is all just amazing. Thank you so much Patti. Oh and there was also some sweet annie seeds and egg gourd seeds. I hope I can get them to grow this year. Not sure our growing season is long enough. ARRGGG
I am sure there is so much more that I am forgetting but there is always tomorrow. I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and that the New Year is your best one yet.
