I really like the wall color and would go with that for the whole room. The idea to put all the cds on an ipod is a good one, and get all those discs out of there. Any storage needed in that room would be great behind closed doors or hidden somehow. I would update the ceiling light fixtures. I think a flat screen tv in the center of those windows is a great idea, I'd get a cabinet to put underneath to store dvds out of sight. Ikea has some great ones that aren't too...
I would say we are housepoor and I wouldn't have it any other way. I can't think of a better place to spend my money. I'd rather have the perfect house in the perfect place than eat out, or go on vacations, or any other fun things. I knew buying this house it would be a bit of a stretch, but I have not had one second of regret. I know I'll be here til the day I die, and the best part is, that where we live, we don't have to pretend to be anyone that we aren't. It's...

My garden is made of raised beds that are a cross between square foot gardening and lasagna gardening.

I ordered from stark brothers this year, but I haven't received anything yet. The customer service was good. I also ordered some from fedco, but they are in Maine and I guess you'd probably want somewhere closer to you that had varieties you know would work in your climate. I would also check with your cooperative extension to see what varieties they recommend.
My dh has been self employed for a long time. His is usually the only income, but I think ideally, it would be good if I had a job that had health insurance and some steady income. Someday, maybe. Anyway, this is how I do it. First off, since our income is sporadic, I do everything by the month rather than the week. The way my dh's business is set up, he could make a lot one month, and none the next. We live very frugally, so everything is as low as it possibly...

I have specific space for muddy boots (we are very rural). I...
My favorites were black astrolorps and buff orpingtons. I'll get more of them if I start another flock. I also want to get something that lays other colored eggs as well.
I've been looking for the exact same thing and no luck. I also only found what you linked to. I don't know if they even make a griddle/waffle iron anymore, but I remember my mom having one, it folded up for storage, and for waffles, then opened flat with different plates for a griddle. If you find it, let me know.
I think there might be some on sale this week at target? Or maybe it was last week? Anyway, I am a total sheet snob and I bought some at target a month or two ago. They were $15 or $20 for a queen set, and I am very happily surprised at their quality. I don't know if each set/color is the same, but the ones I bought are a sage green color, and they are very thick and haven't started pilling yet.
You must have forced hot air? I have found that the best way to dust is with the vacuum. I always get a hepa filter vacuum, and I start with it. I "dust" the ceilings, and everything I possibly can with the vacuum, then I switch to a damp cloth. Anything else just moves the dust around.
