Thank goodness for this blog. I can dump all these random thoughts here and make room for new stuff in my poor little brain.
1: Second Saturday has a new produce vendor. With the closing of Become Eco, McGuire Grove no longer felt they would be stepping on toes to come out to Sorrento, so we’ll have some lovely squash, citrus, and whatever else is growing in their garden. This is produce that’s even more local than Become Eco offered, and while it’s not certified organic, Chip says he hates pesticides and doesn’t even really like to use commercial fertilizer because it’s so expensive. He says his dog ate all the snow peas…and he told me how to cook beet greens so I’m going to give it a try.
2: Little Red, our current escape artist chicken, was chasing a squirrel in the backyard just now. No kidding. I wish I had a video camera because I know noone is going to believe this.
3: There was a baby bunny in the next door neighbors yard. He was awfully cute, but if he gets into my earth boxes I’ll have to have bunny pot pie for dinner.
4: If you pray, please pray for Maya’s Mom. Pray for Maya, too. Pray for the doctors to get a diagnosis and not be horse’s asses. That’s my job.
5: This morning I was thinking about a project I worked on about 10 years ago and an attorney who helped me get it going. Then this afternoon I noticed that she had commented on one of my Facebook friends’ posts, so I sent her a message. She said it was funny that I had messaged her today because she was called upon for a very similar project TODAY. How cool is that! Seriously, I’ve never spoken to this woman other than the project we worked on so long ago. And all of a sudden, she shows up, I message her and she’s been working on that same sort of project just today! We also agreed that our Facebook Friend Scott must have more facebook (and real life) friends than anyone else we know.
6: Original, Spicy and Extra Crispy are growing fast. It is much easier dealing with three chicks than eleven. For one thing, I can keep them in a much smaller (easier to move around) cage. They like playing outside but cannot yet chase squirrels because, of course, they are caged birds. Soon they will be
applying for scholarships and getting drivers licenses growing combs and wattles. Ha. Soon like 12 weeks from now.
7: Do you think it’s strange that I have the first egg the girls laid? I kept it because they laid it on the morning after election day, thereby proving their brilliance. Also we waited so long for that egg that to eat it would have seemed disrespectful. What’s the oddest sentimental thing you have?
