Linking up today with A Rural Journey Random 5 Friday
1.These past few weeks, I have been lagging and dragging in my diligence to read or write blogs. It is my hope to feel inspired soon to record the happenings in our life, but thus far this year has just been a little too crazy!
2.Spring is trying to burst out here one day and then the next, Winter says, "I'm not done with you yet!" The water in our hot tub was frozen yesterday morning. Today the high is expected to be 78 degrees!! What?? So confusing.
3.My DH has been applying himself to the study of Aquaponic gardening and is buying and investing in all kinds of things (plant, animal and mineral) in order to produce so many vegetables this summer that we will have to give it all away! In case you aren't up-to-speed on Aquaponic gardening, the very basic idea has to do with growing plants in water and fertilizing them with fish and their waste. (I'm learning things, too. I had no idea you could order worms from Amazon!)
This pic will give you a little idea of Aquaponics:
Ours is proving to be on a MUCH bigger scale and the whole thing sounds quite fishy to me. (Sorry!)
(I'm not from Missouri, but this is something I will have to see to believe.)
Someday I think I will have to devote a blog to some of the things my DH has done. He is a guy who "must" have a project and it "must" always be something unique (weird
to me, expensive or dangerous). He is fairly creative and one thing I can say for sure, no, two actually, he has fun, and with his fun comes frustration. Fun for him! Frustration for me! Never a dull moment!
4.My 15 year old dog Trudy had to have her dental cleaning yesterday. No teeth were pulled and she's good to go. The vet says this is her last year for that as she is getting too old to be put under anesthetic. Although I'm glad Trudy is in such good shape health wise, it is sad to see her so feeble having a hard time walking, getting confused and sleeping almost all the time now.
5.Downton Abbey! Another season ended way too early! Oh well, guess we will just have to wait until next year to find out whether Bates really did it. What do you think? In the meantime, I'm ready to watch some Call the Midwife, which begins I think at the end of March. If you haven't seen Call the Midwife, you really should take the time to catch up! You will love it. Fantastic series. DH and I both sit and bawl our eyes out or laugh with joy!
