Well it is the eve of my 31st birthday. Yes in about 7 hours and 14 minutes I will start fielding calls from my zany relatives. For some reason in my family we all know what time we were born. My aunts and mom start calling me at 6:26am (well sometimes Aunt Cindy forgets that shes an hour ahead of me and thats a real fun call lol) Im kinda wishy washy about the whole thing, varying from blah to dread and everything in between. There has been so very much that has happened since last year....On Friday we will have been at this house for a year! Can you believe it?!

We have had a nice rain the past day and a half. The rain barrels have been replenished and the garden is clipping along at a good pace. Most everything that was direct sown has sprouted. I still need to get the spaghetti squash in and buy some thyme to replace what I lost. My broccoli started to flower, I had tried to tell Bill that we needed to take what small heads there were he did not agree and now they are mostly blooming....grrrrr. The spinach bolted so I will need to replant, along with the radishes which we ate. I harvested the some lettuce tonight for a big dinner salad to go along with some homemade bbq pulled pork. Hmmm good food for nearly free. The pork we got from the boys mom for taking them for a week while her power was still out. We spiced it and boiled it up before putting it on the grill, which left me with a bit o broth thats now being frozen. I'll use it to cook up green beans later. What leftover meat we have is being frozen in small batches for future lunches.

All in all today was a good day. I hope for the same tomorrow.
