We finished some renovation projects in January, so we had so much time to just relax in our home, get ready for baby and focus on some hobbies. We went to our very first NHL game which was incredible! I'm sure many of you have been to one before, but I just couldn't get over the amount of people! We don't get out much...to the city that is. It was amazing.
We finally bought a rug for our living room which really makes it so much more cozy in there! Eventually we will be ridding ourselves of the boy's blue chairs and getting a three seater couch (one day)! We are getting pretty cramped on our little love seat.
Mitch started making homemade wine, beer and cider this year as well, which he has always wanted to do...because he doesn't have enough hobbies already!...gardening, "orchading", biking, renovating this home, hunting (he just got his license), music, baseball and now wine making. I love this man. I love his passions for so many different things in life, which he always seems to be naturally good at. I personally could never make wine...way to complicated for me with all this "specific gravity" nonsense. None the less, super proud of him. I'm sure by the time 2017 is closing there will be something else added to the list.
March and April consisted of spring cleaning for me. I always get to it during these months but I had a very specific list this year as we are prepping for baby. Everything inside our home got done pretty fast, and then I plugged away outside. It's a much bigger job out there as there are a lot of sticks to pick up from the winter, poop and scoop, rake and garden. Other than our vegetable garden, we have six perennial gardens. I was able to weed, "de-rock" and prep them all prior to Adelaide coming. I wanted our home 100% ready. I want to enjoy my time with her without anything hanging over my head, so now that everything is complete we can actually just enjoy her outside and enjoy our property! Mitch is also taking some time off when she arrives and after a few weeks we are so wanting to make a trip to Bradford Greenhouses and do some more planting!
