Hey everyone I am testing out different combos of veggies and fruits to find something good to drink. I just pressed 2 apples, one lemon, and about 4 leaves of collard greens. It’s good but I needed add a teaspoon of cane sugar for my likes. I normally do not need to add much sugar to anything but this just needed something. I need to pick up some ginger to continue playing with my juicer.
Yup it’s the last week in January and all I can think about having a real garden to plant in this year. We are going to have drought conditions in most places and strange wildfires in California and Oregon currently. There are other things trying to distract me like the Syrian conflict, shootings in the U.S., the Winter Olympics but with all of the problems out there I just want to grow something.
I was asking my friend about her gardening plans and she let me know about another friend who was looking to split some seeds and order through the same company. She also said that another person was wanting to do a Start exchange. So of course I went crazy and created a spreadsheet in about an hour and copied and pasted planting and seeds for the right month and dreaming up this great network.
After taking a few bits to the grinding stone with the input of some folks my spreadsheet was done. I think my crazy was a bit too much but I am just so excited about having a garden this year and not just pots. My hope is that I can just get a few things to grow and that I can harvest a 3rd of what I can put in the ground.
Good luck everyone and never let anyone tamp down your excited feelings about gardening if you do it will never grow.
Like Autobots kinda this video shows how utilities around the country are built to blend in and not upset the local look of an area. It’s a nice thing to not have a ugly pump station in the middle of your neighborhood.
Years ago I started fighting and I haven’t stopped but I have finally come to the conclusion that I am wearing myself out faster than I am making headway. This is my first post in a while and I have really missed writing. So many nerdy and geeky things I have thought of blogging about but I have been bogged down in the mire of pain.
This week I made the choice to stop working on putting myself in an early grave and to start lifting myself out of the fog of war. In the next few weeks I will be leaving my work and start disability leave. My world has been filled with too much pain to ignore and my body has finally convinced me that I should focus on me.
First step is to conquer the paperwork monsters and luckily I love origami and spreadsheets so I think I will be good.
Second step will be to find a place to live that is not going to exacerbate my arthritis and that may take more work than the paperwork of disability.
Yes there will be more steps but I am working thing slowly to do them without over stressing myself. I hope that the spirit can move within me and see me through the end of my journey.
