I was supposed to meet a group for the Great American Cleanup on Saturday. The meeting place got changed and I didn’t get any message, so when I showed up, nobody was there. So I just started picking up trash! I had a couple of bags sitting by the car, and one of the guys that was involved stopped with his truck, picked up the trash I had collected, and told me where everybody was meeting. Yay!!
He’s turning 18 today.
Lately, they’ve been starting at 7am. And then as soon as they’re done with breakfast, they want their breakfast dessert of a new kind of treat we got.
I’m almost done with the second list of things I love about Trav. 🙂 🙂
This guy is amazing – he just completed a solo trek across the Atlantic ocean on a paddleboard. A PADDLEBOARD! I can’t wait for the book about his adventure. This entry in his log is wonderful.
I especially like that he had a pilot fish accompany him for many days.
Every morning, after they eat their canned food, they meow until I give them some of the Sheba meat stick.
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.
