animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook


I’ve been neglecting the blog a little lately. I’ve been watching season 5 of Dexter, so I don’t have movies to force me to blog. That will be remedied soon enough. Maybe I’ll even read a book (if I can ever finish this book of zombie short stories I started reading on vacation).

Gardening note: I decided to remove the herb garden as it always turns into a mass of weeds by the end of the summer. I try to keep up with it, but there’s only so much time to do weeding tasks. So, it’s on its way out. I’m just going to plant grass in that area. I’ll still grow some herbs, but they’ll be in pots. There are so many things growing out there that I hardly ever use, so it doesn’t seem worth the effort.

There are still some things growing in the garden, but the tomatoes have been removed. September has been a bit rainy so I haven’t had a lot of time to work outside. Plus, it gets dark at 7:30, so that cuts into my gardening time even more.

The good news is that soon I will have time to do some things in the house. I need to beef up my Everyone Drinks inventory as well as work on some home-improvement type things. I guess that’s one good thing about fall/winter.
