I Fell Off the Face of the Earth

Well let's see.....long time no speak.  I'm thinking that I need to pick this writing thing back up.  The depression has been kicking my butt since my last post.  I'm trying to get out of the funk but things have been suffering since it got worse.  I do have a working car now. It's working out pretty good. While I'm writing a small storm is rolling over, just thunder so far not any extra rain.  We got plenty yesterday here in De Soto and oh gods did we need it! Southern Illinois, like most of the rest of the midwest, is dealing with being in the drought.  The fields here are the worst that I can remember. I tried to garden but my yard flooded again at one point and it was a major loss, then I let the whole thing go to weeds.  I had sectioned a spot out to do a fall garden but they are saying the drought may last til Halloween!!  So what I've decided to do is make the plot smaller, work on getting the rain barrels functional again and plant late Aug.  If I do that then I can start stuff indoors to have ready by then.

Let's see what else is new? I had to find a new home for Tater, which was sad but for the best.  He is very happy with his new home and owners and he has another dog to play with.  Jodie is off to basic and I am looking for a new roommate. Walley is still here and still a gods-send with helping me around the house.  Sister Zim and I are getting ready to delve into making soaps of all kinds and house cleaners. She is looking to get into selling things, I like to make stuff but I am not good at the business part of things so we'll just see.

Outside of that not much doing.  I have a LOT of catching up to do with other peoples' blogs
