Yesterday, I was getting ready to copy a snippet of SSS to share on someone's blog and noticed a typo. It's okay. I fixed it in all iterations of the book and uploaded them all. But seriously.... After all the times I went through this manuscript... :pulls out Harakiri knife:
Is it still called Harakiri or is it Seppuku now? Asking for a friend.
We voted on Tuesday. Two different 'raise your taxes to pay for things we don't need' issues. We, of course, voted no. And both of them, of course, passed. One raised the sales tax. The other raised the property tax. yay. With most everything outside our control getting more expensive, I can't fathom why people would actively vote for a increase in expenditures we can control. Derp. There was also a school board member thing. We didn't vote for anyone because we didn't think any of them had a clue. The incumbents lost, so that says something about people around here recognizing something is wrong, but from what we read about the two who got in, it'll be more of the same. I hope I'm wrong.
A 93c head of lettuce is now $1.78.
In happier news, my peonies are coming up. Unfortunately, they seem to be the only plants that survived being out of the ground for an extended period of time. Mums... columbine... lariopes... all appear to be dead. :shrug:
Wait, I was supposed to be doing 'happier news' there. Umm... Elmer the elm tree is starting to make branches, so he's not just a stick with leaves anymore. And the baby cedars - Cecil and Cedric - are coming along nicely.
The deer are starting to show their pregnancies. Yay, fawns!
I've been following a wildlife rescue in Oklahoma - Wild Heart Ranch. (If you don't do FB, here's their website.) They're pretty awesome. And they're fighting the good fight. Helping animals that can't help themselves - hurt animals, orphaned animals - and then releasing them back into the wild. They got a baby beaver in the other day. It's black. =oO Definitely not your normal beaver color. And they have this crow they raised and then released who is amazing. She's a free crow, but she doesn't want to leave, and she even helps out around the place. (When she's not stealing things and leaving them on the roof. LOL)
I actually did some writing last night. It pretty much sucks, but I have permission to do that. It'll all work out in the end.
And before I start down the unhappier road again, I'll let you go. What's on your this n that radar today?
