Drive Into A Snow Free Zone: Great Garage Plans

04Dec 2019

One thing that you can always count on with mother nature is that the weather is never going to stay the same way for very long. I read a sign the other day on a plant nursery that has made me giggle every time I’ve thought about it. The sign read, “Autumn was definitely my favorite day this year.” The reason it made me laugh so hard was because its so true! One day it was a nice balmy day, then the next day it was cooler, and the leaves started turning and it seemed like the very next day we had snow in the forecast and the leaves on the trees abandoned ship.

Can you believe that it is December already? Time seems to have just flown by! Now that it’s December, its time to start thinking about getting everything ready for the winter. (Unless you happen to live in the Southern Hemisphere and in that case, “Welcome Summer!”.) Old man winter is never a kind fellow to deal with and he tends to have some pretty rowdy moods. To help you and yours get through my least favorite season, we are going to look at some fabulous house plans that will make you feel all warm and cozy.

One of the things that is so stressful to me this time of year is traveling back and forth to relatives’ houses. I hardly ever host Thanksgiving dinner at my house because, well, my house is a bit too small for everyone to be crowding into. Usually we end up at my aunt’s or my mom’s which are both over an hour away from where we live. The best part of the drive is listening to the kids try to sing the songs that come over the radio. The littlest one hasn’t quite figured out how to pronounce a lot of the words yet, so it makes it interesting to hear.

Thanksgiving is that time of year where we get together and spend time with our loved ones. We get the best recipes out of the old recipe books and make sure that everything is done just the way it always has been. Thanksgiving is also the time of year where we get to see family and friends that we may not get to see very often. And we all know what happens when we see people we haven’t seen in a while. It’s time to catch up and see what’s new with everyone.

In the true spirit of the holiday, let me show you what’s new here at Nelson Design Group.


Thanksgiving Decorating Tips

Welcome November! We all know what this month brings. Turkeys, Christmas Carols and people losing their minds the day after Thanksgiving. Well, that and figuring out what makes you thankful. I feel like people have lost sight of what this part of the season is really about. New Years is about new beginnings and letting go of the past. Christmas is about family and love. Halloween is for the kids. Thanksgiving is getting a bad rap in my mind.

Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that sneaks up on me every year. Every year I tell myself that I am not going to get caught by surprise. That I’m going to have the turkey bought and the dressing ready to go. I keep telling myself this and now its only two weeks away and I haven’t gotten anything ready. I don’t have the turkey bought. I don’t know what kinds of pies I’m going to bake. Should I do candied sweet potatoes or mashed white potatoes? Should I brine the turkey this year or should I just roast him without brining?

Thanksgiving. The idea of the traditional American Thanksgiving always makes me think of a couple of things. Stuffing myself until I can’t move and all I want to do is take a nap, watching the Macy’s parade on TV and spending time with family. We usually did Thanksgiving at my grandmother’s house. She had the formal dining room and the large living room, and she was the best cook in the family. Of course, I think I’m the best cook in the family now, but our house is too small for all of that.

This past Monday was Veteran’s Day and I feel that thanking Vets for their service to our nation only one day in the year is not fair in contrast to what they have given us. I know that our lives are busy and that times are hectic, but I want to do better. I am always striving to be better than I was the previous year and I think this year I’m going to add this to the list. I am going to try to go out of my way to thank Vets for their service.

With the holiday season right around the corner, its that time of year when everything starts to blur together for me. I have trouble keeping the holidays separated in my mind. Of course, part of that problem might be the fact that department stores want you to open your Christmas presents while you eat your turkey and dressing and wearing your Halloween costumes!
