beth i made the costume at the expense of all other activities that *should* have been happening like putting laundry away and trying to declutter/sort mail/pay bills. it was fun/procrastination. i have some halloween decorations but i can't get them out until i CLEAR SOME space to put them
: the kitchen table is overrun with the sewing machine and all that biz. the house is messy messy messy. it was making me a little
: this weekend. (i have a giraffe costume that would fit luke if you are interested in borrowing it. it is a little giraffe jacket with a giraffe head hood. isaac wore it last year).
thanks for the lasagne gardening links sarah. i think that looks cool except i don't have any mulch to really make it work. and shoveling mulch might be just as much work as my method. i just turn the grass over a spadeful at a time (grass down, dirt up). it looks all chunky but i think i will dechunk it just in the areas where i want to plant shrubs and then cover it all with the leaves when they fall off. the grass should mostly just compost back in although it won't be foolproof. maybe i'll put newspaper down. i can get a good amount done when i have a burst of energy....which i didn't this weekend. but this week the weather looks awesome.....we'll see how i feel after work. dh is sometimes really great about digging grass for me. and then he lets me do the planting (fun part). he isn't so into gardening. he got a lot done in the basement yesterday and he just went home to work on it right now. so he's getting good honey-do points
they did a nice job replacing that basement window yesterday. i don't like the blue paint i picked but i'm not going to tell HIM that
right now i feel extremely WAY too full. (where's the fat smilie?) mexican food. i got to go to lunch with dh. nice treat.
i'm at his office and i better get this shizzle done. borrrrrrrrring!
