hay there, it's been a while.....

ok, i'll admit, three months between blog posts is stretching it a bit. but i have a good excuse.

life happened.

first it was birth. then bringing home baby. then colic. then the end of my maternity leave.

but now everything seems to be settled down. (i'm ducking as i type that, i'm pretty sure one of the gods just threw a thunderbolt at me for saying it) and i think it's fitting that i re-start the blog on earth day, don't you?

here's some basic randomness...........

i mowed the lawn today. and yes, i still have a gas mower, and yes i know how horrible it is. but honestly, it was given to me for free. by using it, i'm keeping it out of a landfill. and to be totally honest, i've tried the "no motor push mower" and guys.... it sucks. my house is on a slope, and i have that isoysia (or how ever the hell you spell it) grass that's a bitch to mow even with the gas mower. but i figure as long as i keep the mower well maintained, i'm good.

plants are starting to come up in garden one; onions, blue potatoes, and garlic. garden two hasn't been started yet (rosemary, anise, jalapenos, okra), but i'm going to pick up the landscape timbers tomorrow on my lunch hour for a raised garden. i haven't decided where the white corn is going to go in... may just have to have a garden three...

i've recently become addicted to Confessions of a Pagan Soccer Mom's blog. i'm totally trying to make black salt like she did. it's a time consuming process, but i recommend checking it out.

i think the manchild is starting to teethe. he's been super fussy for the last couple of days. drooling like he's a spigot. mouthing anything he can get his hands on. just when we get over colic. sigh.

ok, i think youre all caught up. and it's getting close to bed time.
