He’s a treasure trove of photos. He’s been scanning them and putting them into a secret Facebook group, where we can all see them.
A few weeks ago, I bought a couple of potted herbs from the grocery store – thyme and peppermint. Feeling pretty good because they’re still alive. I’m planning on making a little garden area next to the steps of our main door. I can keep things going if I see them all the time!
I was able to forage a little bit. Didn’t want to take too much since the plants are just coming up.
We’ve been listening to Keith Urban’s newest album today, and some of the songs are rather sad, about people breaking up and stuff. But Trav has stayed, so no sad stuff here.
I had a tooth pulled, a molar that had started coming out of my head and I couldn’t shut my teeth properly. I got a cavity above the enamel and it got infected. Now that it’s gone, I can put my remaining choppers together. Yay!
I went on an edible plant walk. There wasn’t much to nibble on, but I did learn a lot and especially about pine needle tea. It’s full of vitamins C and A, plus it tastes good! I’ve been foraging in the empty lot kitty-corner from our house. There’s a few sand pine trees over there and the tea is quite pleasant. And of course I always thank the trees for providing.
We get a capital credit at the end of each year, and during the winter our electric costs go waaaaaay down. The weather has been beautiful this winter! Hardly any very cold nights and lots of temperate days.
Even though we’re trying not to accumulate new things, I needed some non-sneaker closed toe shoes for the cold weather. I found some nice boots – thank you, Dad! That’s what you got me for Christmas. I also found some neat tie dye socks to add to the collection Kelly sent me. And, I got a really cool new purse.
Warm, but not hot. I love to turn my face up into it to get the full effect.
They make such a great pair.
He went 30 miles the other day and saw alligators and other neat stuff.
With some birthday gifts… an Altoids bike emergency kit, tire pump, and misting water bottle.
