A few updates.......
What a week. Both kids sick with strep, and I'm trying to catch up from being gone last weekend. I have done no real bogging (sorry, I miss my online friends), or writing, since last week. Cabin fever abounds. I did see THE DUCHESS to keep myself from going nuts, but I hated the movie. I don't usually blog about movies or books I dislike. This one just didn't work for me.
The conference was great. I still need to devote a real blog entry to it. Hopefully, that will happen this weekend. I need to tell everyone about the great authors I met, and some new ideas I have.
Construction update: No pictures (will post some this weekend), but things are happening. Walls are going up, the geothermal unit will be hooked up in a couple of weeks. We are still using the temporary electric radiators. I dread our Feb electric bill. They have dug a trench from the 6 wells to the house, and broke through the wall yesterday. The one window that needed to be moved has been moved. Our new couch is in, and they're going to hold it for us. Completion date is 5/5. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
I loved participating in OWOH and plan on doing it again next year.
Yesterday was my dig-in-dirt day. I get to start thinking about the outdoor garden in two months. Too long to wait, so I needed a plant fix. I went to my favorite garden center and replaced all of my (indoor) herbs that died while we were gone over Christmas, and a couple other plants that bit the dust (again, pictures this weekend). I'm planning which plants will go where when the remodeling is done. That's as much fun as planning the furniture.
I saved the best for last---I'm out of my walking cast. Yea me. It still hurts some if I'm on my foot all day. No high heels for several more weeks, but no clunky cast, either. I ditched it for the conference last weekend, but needed it for a few days after I got home. Now it's in the closet.
So, what's new with you? Any good movies you would like to suggest? Are you doing any indoor or outdoor gardening?
