Random Randomness, Part 286

  • We're packing for Florida. Yipee!!
  • The ducks are gone. I miss them, except for their poop. They were really fun.
  • I'm looking forward to getting chickens, probably next spring.
  • I think my neighbors think I am nuts.
  • I made a huge batch of Monster Cookies yesterday and spent the time reminiscing about camping trips and road trips where we ate mass quantities of my mom's Monster Cookies
  • Tyler took his first steps yesterday.
  • Just kidding!
  • There has been a woodpecker going to town on our aluminum siding. He's a smart feller.
  • I've been squeezing sewing time almost every night this last week. I work like a crazy woman while Jeff and I watch documentaries from the library. As soon as I sit down, I fall asleep.
  • My garden is 2/3 planted. Phew! I started everything from seed and even though they grew just fine now I think I'll be worried til they get a little bigger outside. Did I mention that I had to clear my new garden ground (the top left picture) all by hand? (It was grass) What a pain. But fortunately after I did that a neighbor came by and told us to use his rototiller to till it up. The new bit brings the garden to a total of 11' by 50', and I also extended my flower/herb patch quite a bit. The bamboo thingy is going to be a fort for the kids. We are going to grow pole beans on it to make the walls and roof.
