Spring is here said the Bumblebee...

Actually, Spring doesn't begin until March 20 and it looks like we might actually make it until then without freezing all of the pretty flowers. Thank you Mother Nature for not being cruel. It must be because I am have been so good to you. I know. You're welcome.

Sorry for the blogging hiatus. I have been busy with realmoneymakingbodydraining work AND T just got a card reader for his working camera yesterday so I came as soon as I could.

Over the past couple of weeks I have been exploring new things. I made bread last weekend in the form of pitas and rosemary/olive loaf (not to be confused with oliveloaf bologna. Anyone else's parents buy that as "lunchmeat" when they were little?!). Anywho, it was good. I think I will continue making bread and see how all that works out. Sans eggs, of course.

I have also been reading No Impact Man which I will post about later because it/I will blow your mind with it. Hopefully.

Oh yea, and I wanted to show everyone my favorite household chore......Carpet Shampooing. If you don't have one, you should spend the $200 and purchase one. I swear it is so rewarding. This is why....
Okay so, what you are looking at is the water container for the shampooer. See that brown ish in the bottom? That is the dirty water from my bedroom and hallway. That isn't even half as awesomeblack as the living room was. When you have animals your carpet water turns into this in a matter of two weeks. Seriously though, look at that? How can I not feel accomplished after shampooing? My carpets look and feel so much better. T can roll around all he wants on them now playing with the dogs, whining, and/or taking a nap without me gaggin and puking a little in my mouth.
It's pretty much my favorite household device!

"How do you know?" said the old oak tree.

Ok, I can take a hint...I'll buy my own shampooer and quit borrowing yours. Besides, it's just weird that you own one and I don't.

Hey, can you wash the dogs using the shampooer? Might save time.

Your 'parents' did not buy pickleloaf - only your father did. And just last week he was mad when they didn't have it at Safeway....eesh, now I'm puking a little in my mouth - hate that!

Hey Em - I think you better check the TOS for the blogs - there may be a prohibition of posting photographs of certain things - like dirty carpet-cleaner water. I was relieved though, as I feared you were going to link your posted passions and tell us you poured that into a baggie, froze it, and used it later for a vegan soup stock base....

Hey, guess what ? I just saw a daffodil dancing with a fairy on a windy hill !!! (The fairy had a blossom of Daphne stuck up her nose, too, BTW.)
