Vacation’s over

Worked from 4:00 to 10:00 last night, came home and milked the goats and then was up until around midnight.  For those of you who know me, you know that’s way, way, way, way past my bedtime.  Even though I went to bed so late, I was still up at 6:00 AM.  Running on six […]

Darned …

Headed out to drive to Hickory to do some shopping and Yoda wouldn’t start!!!  Seems his battery is dead.  Great.  I’ll have to wait until Wally gets home to see about jumping him and then I guess we’ll be buying a battery.  We just got through with getting a battery and new tires for Wally’s […]

Things to be thankful for today …

Good news, good news and more good news!

I went to an interview yesterday at a local Walgreens for a part-time job in the photo department.  I got hired on the spot!!!!  Whoo hooo!  Sure, it’s a low-paying job, but it ought to be more challenging and rewarding than working at Wal-Mart.  I’d go and live under a rock before I took another […]

Garden

When I went out to pick some cucumbers and tomatoes for my lunch, I brought the camera along with me.  About time I got these photos taken.  The raised beds have been a very rewarding project. The photo below shows the two raised beds we’ve installed in the main garden.  The bed in the foreground […]
