Since they don't make the bird-a-day calendars I love anymore, I've been re-using the two I have - 2016 & 2017 - alternating years so the pictures aren't as fresh in my mind. I'm using the 2016 one this year and guess what? The days of the week are correct for this year. Yay!
Little things can still amuse me.
If you've never tried them, Marie Callendar's pot pies are da bomb. We had beef ones for dinner last night. Yummers.
Kira seems like she's most of the way back to normal now. She's still not interested in standing up to eat, though. I suspect that since she's learned she can lay down while she eats, she's going with it. It's probably not good for her, but she's 86, so she gets to do whatever the hell she wants to do.
I spent some time yesterday learning about composting. Yes, I lead an interesting life.
I want a chainsaw. You'd think we already had one, but no. Everything I do in the woods right now is by sheer muscle and hand tools. I love my bow saw. Unfortunately, I'm getting to the point in my life where using a bow saw makes me pay for it the next day. Plus we have some thick trees that need whacking up and the bow saw just ain't cuttin' it. Gonna have to go with power saws soon. Look out world. Heh.
Yes, I am on the fringe of becoming a prepper. I mean, we were already pretty prepared for emergencies, but last year upped the game. And this year is already looking worse. I'm still on the fence about getting chickens and/or rabbits. They are so much work. So's a garden, but I'm leaning toward plants rather than animals. If I get lazy and neglect a garden, the plants might die, but it won't be cruel. We'll see if any of this comes to fruition.
I also spent some time yesterday learning about terraced gardens. We live on a hill. Terracing seems like the logical choice unless I want to take over the one kinda flat spot in the yard. Right in the middle of the yard, by the way. If I terrace, I can put gardens on either side of the yard. Again, it's a lot of work. I'm not allergic to the work if I'm doing a project, but long-term maintenance makes me lazy. Which is why I haven't dusted in a month.
And that's it for me. It's more than enough, I think. Got anything to add? Any this n thats in your world?
