Have you ever added up out how much your pets end up costing each year? Well, I figured recently that barring unforeseen medical expenses and such, our cats each cost a dollar a day to feed. This isn't a post topic, by the way, just an observation. I'm much too tired and harried for post topics. Inane blather will follow. Enjoy.
I can still scarcely believe the bevy of blossoms that unfolds from the back-stoop, so many old fruit trees and wild plums.
This was the first day in a long time without driving rain, so I took a long brake to work on tilling some soil in front of the house's two "wings" and starting some seeds outside. Cress, parsley and peas, thank you for being unfussy.
I was thinking that this could be an outfit-post, but really I'm wearing dirty overalls and a blouse I found (to my delight as I thought I had lost it) under the bed. And my mucking-around-boots. Which I guess I'm lucky to have...
There is such a bounty of growing, living things all around me, it seems like a sin to sit inside typing and budgeting and translating. It's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it. And then, someone's gotta plant some favas in some actual dirt.
Spring is a fickle time, rain and shine, computer chores and gardening. Hopefully I'll be back at the end of the week, depending on putting together our crowdfunding effort goes. Wish me luck.
How's your dirty jobs?
