happy thursday

i must go upstairs and get my second cuppa. currently, snowing here and brisk hovering around 28 degrees. i don't feel like doing a damned thing- can i call in sick? i have a to do list and i got lots done yesterday but i really must go through my seed catalogs. i have 2 i am picking from- has anyone seen seed catalogs lately? jesus christ in a sidecar- they rival the jc penny's catalog. i mean do most folks need 50 different types of tomatoes? so, i need to get that done and my orders sent in so i get my choices. first come first served in the world of seeds.

i know what i want to plant- after i get the seeds ordered- then i get to figure out where to put it all. i intend to grow fresh herbs inside and out- so i can have fresh and dried. luckily, many of my houseplants are biting the dust this winter. guess i haven't quite got the hang of the new house and daylight and humidity and stuff. sigh. that's ok- i like variety and this will allow my to plant different stuff.

i am going to be social this eve- yes, i know, i must be lying right? nope. i am having a beer and burger (or whatever) with a couple of friends to catch up and whatnot. apparently, i am not the only family to have major shit go down over the 'holiday season.' these guys had to put their second cat down- they had 2 in one year- and had a relative die of a massive stroke. yep. sucks. so, i guess this season should really be for the kids after all since the grownups are dealing with massive shit.

anyhoo- on to the second cuppa before shoveling. yesterday, i removed a good quarter inch of ice from the drive. i know. i am getting decidedly mundane and boring in these posts. haven't found my 2009 groove yet :)

Hey, its hard to blog for me lately as well.

Life can get in the way of blogging...

I thought you like the heirloom seed thingies?

Gotta go, the Big O is speechifying..

Happy Thursday to you as well, dear betmo.

It's not that I am finding it hard to be inspired...it's the dropping the fingers down on the keyboard that I'm having trouble with. Normally my muse tells me if she is taking a hiatus, but this time it would seem she didn't and has left me fingerless... She'll come back to me, I just don't know how long it will be...Today? Tomorrow? Next week? Sometime in the near future I hope.

Peace.

yes indeedy i buy heirloom when possible or otherwise organic, non genetically modified seeds. i also try to avoid hybrids when possible. bit harder to care for but the rewards are worth it. :) currently i am poring over seed savers and johnny's catalogs. no easy task as everything looks so good- and i tend to jump in with both feet and the rest of my body as well :)

Given your invading "Pesky wabbits", perhaps a basic sowing of potaoes, onions, and carrots, plus the use of one large stewing saucepan.
A side order of lettuce, radishes and tomatoes...
Bon appetit.

It's hard to pick w/so many choices. I would love to have a greenhouse.
