Rain Rain Go Away

Everytime we think its gonna be pretty it rains again. Today all of the kids stayed home because of the flu, and it rained on top of that. There was a lot of lightening and thundering too, which means that its gonna frost at least 4 times next month. That's and old wives tale that bf keeps reminding me of. The load of lime hasn't made it because of the rain, its too early to buy tomato plants or actually plant anything...I'm getting bored with the non planting stage of my garden. I did go out and find some cool things out under the shed that was my dad's when he was alive, and prolly his dad's when he was alive and so on. I want to get pictures of some of these things so that everyone can see some of the history here. I think we are gonna get goats and a llama do. The llama is already named drama. We have a new pet too....well not really, but a skunk has taken refuge somewhere on the lane.

Hopefully I will get more posting now that i have the new cell modem. I hate not having dsl!!! TTFN!

Dish Cloth Swap

These came in the mail from Rekesha in Virginia. Its not two but three crocheted dish cloths, a mini notebook and pen, notepad and darling butterfly card (not pictured). All in red and white for Valentines Day!
Also in the mail was my package of loofah seeds! I'm so excited. The new plan is for a larger garden with it being moved to the side of the house. BF said I'm gonna need all 40 acres soon!

Happy Super Fat Tuesday

Today is Fat Tuesday and Super Tuesday. I haven't been to the polls yet, but I will go as soon as I get home and get a shower. Today is also Fat Tuesday for Mardi Gras and tomorrow will be the start of the Lenten season. I've been thinking about what I will give up for Lent. I'm leaning toward Cokes, and other colas. BF and I have had our fair share the last few weeks. If I can replace cola with water, I'll be doing better on my water intake.

On another note, because my connection at home has been down for quite some time, I haven't been able to update about the gardening this year. I ordered some seed catalogs, visited the local farmers co-op, and ordered loofah seeds today. BF has decided on a salsa garden, and I'm just not sure what else I would like to plant, but loofah, tomato and lavender sounds like a start.

We found such a cool store at the Galleria this past weekend! Ambiance. Hopefully I can find a website for it soon. We hope to frequent the Galleria from now on. I did go to town yesterday and found a couple shirts to reform into dresses for K, a basket, skirt, soap bottle, and BF's V-Day present.

Next up will be more plans on sewing, gardening and maybe an update on flooring options for the house.
