smallish tidbits

hhmmmm...........

I thought I had a lot of things to say ....but now I can't remember them.

well, I guess I'll just randomly write things...

My lettuce mixes are sprouted, but because of the F'ing sprinklers, they are getting over watered. Getting some stuff to take care of that this weekend.

Also getting a new vacuum this weekend! I'm so excited. The vacuum we have is about 5 years old, and has had the same filter the whole time, since no one sells them anymore! It's supposed to be changed once a year...not gonna make that mistake again, will buy a few replacement filters with my new one.

ALSO going to the County Fair this weekend. Kaia loves fairs, and so do I! We get the bracelets that allow unlimited rides and just have a blast. She gets annoyed that she's too short to go on a lot of the rides, but has a blast on the ones she's allowed. She likes the livestock barns too. Will take pictures and maybe actually post some?!!

I emailed a good friend from high school that I haven't talked to in about 10 years. He was a really interesting person, I hope he emails me back so we can catch up. He's still in Vancouver, so next time I go down there, I'm hoping to see him.

I fear that my other lettuce, the iceberg, is having an identity crisis. It seems to think it's dandelions. It grew to the exact size and shape of dandelion leaves, and there is stayed. It doesn't seem to even realize it's supposed to form into a head, much less have plans to do so.

My saffron crocus bulbs arrived!! Now I just have to wait until my bulb food gets here and I am on my way to producing the most expensive spice in the world! I realized I don't think I've ever actually eaten saffron rice, but looking forward to it!
