A Michigan Spring and our Outdoor Fridge plus My To Do List!


There is a quiet when snow falls. That was the one thing that I have missed this winter that we've had without snow, was the quiet.  When there is snow you hear less noise like traffic and planes.   It's is a wonderful peace!

Having an outdoor fridge is another benefit of snow and cold. Our fridge requires defrosting about once a year.  Oh it's frostless but ice forms in the freezer and clogs up everything.  We picked a perfect day to do this job... today-it's both cold and snowy and we can just put stuff outside without worry about anything being ruined.  We have a fridge just outside our door.  The joy of having a Michigan winter  I mean Spring! 

I've started back with a to do list this week.  Life gets busy and I try to get something on my list done everyday

Outside work:

If weather permits this week I hope to finish caulking the greenhouse.

Keep cleaning and organizing garage.

Inside work

Clean carpets

Defrost the fridge 

Peel and freeze garlic into cubes (I've been watching how to do this on youtube).

Clean that corner of the kitchen that I've been neglecting.

How is it been going at your house?

I love that quiet on the rare snow days here in SC.

CHef, Isn't it nice to have a free cooler? This winter is different though..just a few weeks ago it was in the 60's and we had a tornado. The weather is changing for sure. Have a great day!

Lana, It is so peaceful. I'm glad we got the snow. It will melt by Monday they may be our last snow this season.
Have a wonderful day!

I miss being able to store food outside in the wintertime. We always did that in Illinois back when I was growing up. It's the perfect time to clean out your freezer. I hope you get to finish caulking the greenhouse this week. :)

Oh Belinda...the freezer comes next! I think that will be next week if we get another cold spell. Have a good week
