My life has become a game to see how much food I can plant in my postage-stamp, mostly shaded yard. There will be a second bed dug, for sure, along with lots of containers. On top of it all, I have a shipment of flower seeds arriving in a few weeks - a butterfly garden. I'm really looking forward to that, but I have to face the probability that I just won't have room for most of those right now. Ah well...later, I guess!
There's also been an interesting development with the laundry line. It's only been up for two weekends now, and we've already become so used to it that yesterday afternoon, we had the following conversation:
Me: I'm not sure I should wash another load today. I don't think they'll dry before the rain comes. Wait...what am I saying?? We have a DRYER.
DH: Yes, but do you see what's happened? You've already gotten used to not using it - that's AWESOME!
We actually like hanging the clothes so much that we sort of battle a little bit over who gets to do it. Labor saving devices? Bah! Who needs 'em? Clearly, not us.
