I came back to a whole lot of weeding on Saturday and ended up clearing out enough room from one of the beds I was able to transplant the tomatoes (had my first one tonight and it was delicious!). I also came home to cucumbers (another first along with corn, sunflowers, watermelon and acorn squash)..woo hoo!
Plans are moving forward to go to New Orleans next month to pickup Bacchus. Since I made the decision to adopt him I’ve gradually been getting more excited and adapting to the idea of having a dog again.
The girls are fifteen (weeks) going on sixteen and should begin laying in about four weeks (with any luck after I get back from Louisiana). I’m looking into poultry netting to expand their outdoor run, at least during the daytime while home…but options are $$$ so I may need to get creative. I do (for those who’ve asked) let them take turns in the yard while I’m doing yard work.
It’s been a long week getting up at 6:00 a.m. and not tucking in till 10:00 p.m. when I try to stay awake to read (if I’m lucky I last about ten minutes). I’m staying on top of my workouts and thanking Hilery every day for my physical transformation (stronger, slimmer, faster). Thank you Miami Dolphins for not keeping her in Miami!
Speaking of football, my beloved Bears take to the field soon for their first preseason game against the Broncos. I’m bummed Urlacher will not be on the field, but looking forward to seeing what Campbell can do (I am not a Cutler fan). Undeniably, I’m also pretty interested in seeing Manning on the field again.
