Well That Was Short

It was. It was a wayyyyyyy too short weekend. I fell like I didn't get half of the things done that I wanted to. Doesn't help when I did nothing Saturday except watch movies, Christmas ones at that.
Thanksgiving was just The Wife, Squeak and myself. Sorry, dogs too. Bubby and his wife spent their time with her family. She then proceeded to get ill yesterday so they went straight home and we never got to see them. Oh well, that's the way it works sometimes.
The Wife and I ventured out Friday to do a little shopping, just to see what we could find. We didn't think about fighting any crowds, leaving the house at around 8:00. We actually found most of the stores not that crowded. Old Navy was another story. It looked like looting was taking place. The line to check out started at the front of the store, went clear to the back, then looped back around to the front. Needless to say we didn't stay. I don't have the patience for a lot of people in one place. Take a look.

Saturday was A Christmas Story, Christmas With the Kranks, and Muppet Christmas Carol. WOF kind of day.
Today. I cruised the garden (everything doing OK) then I proceeded down to my 'favorite' home improvement store for more lumber. I was able to get all of the main post bolts in, the floor down and two of the walls up on the building.

Not too bad if I say so myself. It just takes time when you're doing it yourself. I am hoping to get it under roof by the end of next weekend.
I did go through my seed catalogs and have a good idea of what I am going to be getting for next year, which believe it or not is not that far off! I will say that the Baker Creek catalog is like the holy grail of heirloom seeds! Wow!
Last but not least Growing a Greener World episode this week had some great information on home made pest repellants and killers, one of which I tried with good success this year (the dish detergent and water.) Good info here.

WOF of the Week. What can be said for just being comfortable.

Going to be long week I'm afraid, not looking forward to it. Lounge when you can kids.

  1. Love Baker Creek. Get your order in early though. Things sell out quick.
