Notes to self

Note to Self;
Never leave gardening gloves on top of the rain barrel. You're just asking for them to get soaked. Then again, maybe it's like a rain dance; put the gloves on the rain barrel, and the rain will come. Try it during the next dry spell.

Note to Self;
Don't get too excited about the fact that Amigo likes asparagus. Remember when Chuck complained we had it too often? Amigo responded, "I like asparagus; it makes my pee smell funny." Gah.

Note to Self;
The weekly visit to the Farmers' Market is uplifting. Make the effort to go no matter what the weather or mood.

Note to Self;
One discouraging experience does not have to make a serious setback. One meltdown is okay; then move on. Remember, depression recovery is more like the tortoise than the hare.

Note to Self;
Now that La Petite is moving out, start planning the conversion of her bedroom to office & guest room. Yes, Amigo's bean bag chairs may live there for now.

Note to Self;
Now that Chuck has a new car, find a reusable shopping bag and "hide" it in his glove box. Then train him to use it. Snicker. Tee-hee.

Note to Self;
With three word games on the Kindle, hide Kindle from Chuck if you ever want to read on it again!

The fact that asparagus makes one's pee smell funny is how I got my picky Little M. to eat it! Now it's one of his favorite veggies.

One of my friends bought her husband a reusable shopping bag that says, "I use this bag because my wife makes me recycle" on it. Sounds like the perfect bag for Chuck!

Sigh...I should visit our Farmer's Market more than once a season too. I'm such a lover of lazy Saturday mornings and don't usually even get dressed until after 1:00 pm, which is an hour after our Farmer's Market is over. We are still members of our CSA, so I still get fresh, local veggies every other week.

I'm going to have to try the gloves on the rain barrel trick for a little rain...
