Maybe not in the sense of priorities--you want to give them the best nutrition possible so they don't up and die on you, or waddle around fat with too many seeds in their belly because they need more vitamins and can't fly to burn off the calories. And I've got two that are popping out … Continue reading It’s pretty bad when your parakeets eat better than you do…
My Copy: 9781787133198 This is a pretty good little book and I was glad that I picked it up. Live Green is all about finding different ways to make your life a little cleaner and friendlier to the environment. From what I could see, I believe Ms. Chillingsworth is a Brit, so there are some … Continue reading Live Green: 52 steps for a more sustainable life, by Jen Chillingsworth
I'm getting the sneaking suspicion that I should maybe get off this "I want to be a writer for a living" kick and try and save up money for a farm, because plants seem to be all I've focused on this past month. Somehow, without planning on it, I started thinking of nearly every size … Continue reading Oops, I did it again… hopefully for the last time this year.
My Copy: 9780471327943 (image from bn.com) This is a health book I'm glad I picked up to read over and think about, largely because with really short chapters and the number of topics covered, there's something to learn for anyone. The Longevity Strategy may seem miraculous, but honestly, it's a lot of research and science … Continue reading The Longevity Strategy: How to live to 100 using the brain-body connection, by David Mahoney & Richard Restak, M.D.
I never thought I could get this much done in a day again, but that weather was back and a nice breeze keeping it decent most of the day. And so I spent the time afterward with throbbing feet, kicking back with some cheap red and Hot Pockets. I'm sure I could've done better for … Continue reading Damn the pencils, full shovels ahead!
I'm trying to figure out how it happened. Other than a quick go early this morning online to do a few basic things for my gaming team to get points, I got started with my day. I think I only touched YouTube most of the day to put some stuff on for noise come mid … Continue reading I forgot what a full (& productive) day felt like, til now.
I fully expected my new cage to arrive around Friday and figured I had a few days to get some other stuff done. But when I checked my e-mail this morning, I was amazed that it was already on the truck and showing up today. Thus started a long morning of grocery shopping, getting some … Continue reading Operation Upgrade was a success for my feathered ones…finally. I’d crack open the wine to celebrate if I wasn’t so tired.
My Copy: 9780811862806 (image from amazon.com) I'd set this in my to-read stack quite a while ago, and it was a tough book to find the first time I went looking for it (I'd grabbed pretty much anything written by or about Alice Waters that week). But this is a pretty good book for pre-teens … Continue reading Edible Schoolyard: A universal idea, by Alice Waters
Once again, the angels of duty and responsibility have reared their heads and declared war on my demons of procrastination. Though in my defense, it wasn't entirely wasted time. I WAS doing necessary and relevant things outside while the weather was good. But damn, this place is a few dust bunnies and dirt clots away … Continue reading Pushing Myself to Clean Better
I'd tested them out before a couple of times when I first got them a couple of months ago, but I guess it really wasn't all that helpful, or my feet felt fine, so it just felt like I was putting undue pressure for some reason I couldn't understand. But after several days outside, walking … Continue reading Had a reason to try out my acupressure foot mats today… and they were SO worth it.
