http://ediemariesattic.blogspot.com/ I wanted to make sure I put this up. She is having her first give away, go check it out.
We have the prettiest sunrises and sunsets here, this is the start of one this morning about 5 am. The tree on the right is a huge old maple, I want to make a small patio under it so we can sit and watch the sun come up.
Jim is on his way back to work, it was so super having him home for 4 whole days. Looks like he will have nice weather for the drive. If I could only find something to do from home then he would be able to take something closer. I do have some leads, apparently it is pretty easy to set up a home business around here. I am hoping that on the next long weekend that Jim is home we can clear out the big garage and rearrange things. I can put up the insulation and washable wall board and the heavy duty wiring is in. This will allow me to hook up my big oven and be able to do more in the cake and pet treat lines.
From what I was told I should also be able to do catering from here, that would solve quite a few of my problems. Having no added overhead and not having to commute will make this much more feasible. I had not started this earlier thinking that I would have to jump through all kinds of hoops. The laws here are much more reasonable it seems. I have all the proper sinks and exhaust fans and I believe all I will need to get this up and running. Time will tell, I am crossing fingers that the information I was given is correct.
Charlie is snoozing under my feet, recharging his batteries I bet. He is getting much better in all areas, we are working hard on not chasing cars and coming the first time we are called. We also need to not chase cats, no matter how tempting it is. Star seems to be pretty much back to herself, so most probably was a bad bruise or sprain. Everyone else is doing well, Peaches has one again taken up residence in the upstairs bathroom. She is the Flame point Himalayan and about 15 or 16, she was a rescue so age was approximate.
I am so grateful that we have been having some nice weather, my gardens and the weeds are doing well. I get such a tickle being able to go out and pick my own salad, I even have some tomatoes which should be ripe in a few days. What is great is that even people in apartments or with small yards can do this. One of those long plastic planters could be used for the lettuce and since you are picking the mature leaves you will have lettuce for quite a while. I have even seen examples where they used a trash can, planting tomatoes, herbs even potatoes. If you are interested there are articles on container gardening, just Google it. The roses are outdoing them selves, covered with buds. Vases of roses everywhere, love it.
Best to you, Barbara
