Today I ate lunch down by the waterfront in Bangor. Chunks of ice are moving down river. 

I got to use my new sander and got most of the stain off. I had issues with the paint stripper but hoping with some extra work the bureau will come out looking decent. I did bring in the snowman that was sitting on the porch. Please no more winter. 

I made salsa verde chicken enchiladas tonight. Simple recipe I found on Pinterest and my boyfriend loved it. I think he's starting to think I can cook.

Happy Grilled Cheese Day! We made grilled cheese using garlic bread and mozzarella cheese.

I made dinner tonight trying a new recipe. I made pork chops with parmesan and spinach pasta and broccoli. The recipe for the pasta I found here. I used shells instead of orzo. I grabbed a photo before Peter ate it.

Started refinishing project. Did paint stripper today to get off coat of polyurethane. Still more to do but looks good so far. Will post more pictures when I am closer to being done.

Tonight I decided to try something new and made stuffed peppers for dinner. My boyfriend loved it and wants me to make it again. I've been enjoying making dinner and getting my boyfriend to eat more vegetables. :)

It was nice to be able to make dinner for my sweetheart. I tend to forget how much I like cooking. I used to work nights for years so making dinner wasn't something I got to do often.

I found a cute case today at the Salvation Army for $1.  Trying to find something different besides white. :)

A friend thought this was a joke but there really are peeps on donuts right now from Dunkin Donuts.

I've been trying to identify problem areas and try to resolve them. When I say problem areas I mean organization. It drives me crazy when the kitchen counter gets covered with mail and random stuff. Another issue was coats being left on chairs. The entry way closet won't be done until it gets warmer out so I tried a different option. 

Mail has a home now by the door. 

Coats are now up instead of covering the chairs in the kitchen. Happiness!

I just had to share the new basket I got on clearance from Target. Cute eh?

The last few days I've been trying to make sense of my office. I want to make changes to the room to make it more functional. I was excited to get a new desk from Target.

This afternoon I went through the large pile of pennies Peter has. I was super excited to find a penny minted in San Franscico. I don't care if he called me a nerd. 

Peter was kind enough to send the time today and make us a boiled dinner. 

Celebrating St Patrick's Day wearing green and having a Guiness at one of the local Irish pubs for lunch. I made sure to stop and grab a Shamrock Shake before heading home.

I tried to have some self control this year and have only a few Shamrock Shakes. Today was the first day I had one. :)

My recent dining room chairs from After a few years finally have matching chairs. I think in the Spring we will alter the table to make it easier to fit chairs under it. 

Happy Pi Day!

Lots of snow here in Maine. When will Spring appear?
