Sleep Sheep

I know, I know, I haven't posted much. I haven't been much in the mood. And since we've been trying to eat at home more I've found myself trying to make things the night before so I don't have to do it when I get home or have to make David make them. Then last night it was time for me to go out and work in our "garden". Let me tell you about the garden. I think I've already written about this but I must say I'm too lazy to go back and look. Anyway, at least you'll have an update. There's this corner in our backyard that I'm working on. It was very pretty but was way overgrown with grape hyacinths in the spring. There were tons of tulips too. However, it's such a large area to take away from the yard for just a few weeks out of the year. So about 2 months ago mom and I pulled out all of the stone edging and angled it off (used to be a square). Then I just kept digging and digging....all of these clusters of bulbs (figuring mostly grape hyacinths) were coming out. Then I would come out a week later and there were more bulbs that came to the surface. So ever since then I've been spending 1-2 hours per week out there digging up bulbs. Then about a month ago something started to sprout up. So I was digging out something that I wasn't sure was. But it has started to slow down, so I haven't dug out there for about two weeks. So it was time last night. Not too bad. I think it only took 30-45 minutes. Sweet. We still need to add fill dirt but I don't want to do that until at least the end of next spring. Because I'm sure you'll find me out there right at the beginning of spring digging out any sprouts that are coming up. I think in about a year or so we'll be able to plant grass. Patience....something I'm not good at. It's wednesday. Half way there. And the weekend is supposed to be super nice. Ah, maybe we'll finally be going to CP. Only a high near 63 Saturday. Perfect. Maybe I'll even be able to catch a few shots. David and I figured we'll probably have some time, since we're planning on making a day of it. Not to mention, everyone I've spoken to has said that the crowds are so small.....most of the rides you can walk right on. That's the way I like it. No crowds, in jeans and a sweatshirt. Maybe even a hat. Good to go. This week I've been kind of tired. However, I've been getting to sleep way earlier than normal (9:00) and even waking up before my alarm goes off. Say what?! Yeah, dunno what's up with that. Just like the good 'ol days in high school. I've been dreaming a lot too, and even remembering my dreams. I'm figuring it's because of the cooler weather. But that's just an hypothesis. But considering the past 2 days were on the warmer side....I think that debunks my hypothesis. Anyway, whatever. Guess what? It's someone's birthday today. Can you guess who?! If you guessed Justin....DING DING DING, YOU'RE RIGHT! So don't forget to holla at him. HAPPY BIRTHDAY J!!!!!!

Hi Heidi, thanks for all the encouraging words on my blog. You have such a warm soul.

I feel you on the gardening thing. At least you are keeping up with it, I was definitely not born with a green thumb.

Your pictures are beautiful. It makes you realize Sandusky's charm (did I really just say that...) :)
