“I dream of painting and then I paint my dream.” – Vincent Van Gogh

Beautiful weekend days allowed me to be outside for the majority of Saturday and Sunday.  I have had big plans for lots of planting in the garden.   I planted 8 trees, 14 shrubs, the remainder of my herb seedlings, and a bunch of different seeds.  I ran out of plants so I had to Read more about “I dream of painting and then I paint my dream.” – Vincent Van Gogh[…]

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” – Mark Twain

I have collected half a dozen pallets, which are to be pulled apart and used to build another Rabbit Hutch.  I promised my eldest son that, if he could show that he could be responsible, we would buy him a Rabbit.  As we need a new Rabbit, this fulfills two roles… a pet for my Read more about “The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” – Mark Twain[…]

“I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 96% how I react to it.” – Scipio Africanus

On Wednesday the wind started to increase.  I didn’t really notice it where I am, I suspect that the nearby hills and forests protected us from the brunt of the winds.  Apart from losing power three times overnight, nothing really happened.  On the drive to work I did see fallen trees on the roadside and Read more about “I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 96% how I react to it.” – Scipio Africanus[…]

” Open your eyes, look within. Are you satisfied with the life you’re living?” – Bob Marley

I recently read How to Grow Food in Small Spaces, a book which Kitty bought for me, as well as the How-to cards the authors have created as a companion to the book. The book, How to Grow Food in a small space, was an interesting and easy read.  It was created by Fabian Capomolla Read more about ” Open your eyes, look within.
