things I'm doing when I forget to blog



These days, I am 
making new garden beds.  The old ones have been falling apart for a couple of years.  It has been nice to realize we've learned some things since the first time around.  We invested some tax refund money in better wood (cedar) and are making them taller, and closer together - we had quite a bit of wasted space between the last ones.  Tons of my garden pics here.  

cooking homemade pasta, but not as much as I'd like.

reading Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline.  I joined a book club, that my new-ish neighbor invited me to, in order to get to know her better.  She's usually out of town on book club night, so maybe I just need to invite her over for tea!  I picked this book up, then, off my stack, which was recommended by my oldest teenager.  If you like 80s pop culture, you'll enjoy it.  I want to finish it shortly so that I can take my kid to go see the movie in theaters, although we all know the book is better, right?!  

looking for the genealogy link that explains why I see my maiden name on Scottish websites.  So far, it's proving elusive, but I've learned so much about my ancestors this month!  

loving my family, all the pieces still alive.


admiring succulents like these.

rooting for the Rockies.

finishing the Oriental Koigu Jacket, and vowing to never make another.  


What do you have going on these days??

Such an interesting post with so many things you are doing! I checked out the links, I really like the Big Dreams and all the wonderful garden pictures. I'm ready to work outside - except it's raining. But then everything will be greener! Enjoy all your projects and keep us posted!
