Osterglocken, can you see them? 3/11/2010


I can’t remember the American name for them, but this means spring has definitely sprung! It got up to a lovely 70 degrees today and the rain that they called for held off for another day.
I even removed the bubble wrap from the kitchen window and moved the black-out curtains, that were blocking the draft coming through the front door, back to the bedroom.  It’s supposed to get cold for a couple of nights next week and this move is probably going to bite me in the butt and I’ll be freezing again….but I couldn’t resist letting some of this awesome, bright sunshine come into the house.
The Dell from hell is back at T-Jay’s.  I went back today to help him get on the internet and now everything is back up and running.  As soon as he gets everything off of my laptop, I’ll get that machine back over here and will give it a reformat to clean it out.  This way I have a spare that’s in good working order, in case something happens to the one I’m using now.
I just read mmpaints latest thread about healthy eating and Monsanto.  I watched another documentary about Monsanto last Sunday.  How do we forget bad news so quickly and just kind of accept things and go with the flow?  We ask questions once….listen to the half-assed answer and then everything gets swept under the rug. Most of us have gotten so spoiled and lazy and have grown totally dependent on our forever growing supply of grocery stores. 
Just thinking about growing our own food to feed ourselves and our families seems like a huge almost impossible task.  If we do go out of our way to buy home grown organic food, the price is so high that it’s not in our budgets.  I know it’s not in mine.   This has gotten me pretty worked up, can you tell?  I’ll be taking baby steps and starting my little garden next week.  Some home grown food is better than nothing.
LOL….it’s time to go to sleep, but my pussy has lost her mind and wants to play with my boots….
