It is so beautiful here this morning. The snow is falling steadily and already deep on the ground. It is so very quiet and a Saturday!

That sounds beautiful.

Just got back from xc skiing. Truly beautiful.

It is beautiful here in western PA. Lots of snow and it's all white and pristine, not the dirty greasy slush that happens with traffic. I drove my 2005 4Runner today for the first time in a long time ... locked in the low 4WD and growled right on up the field.My oldest son came in from DC to build me the frame for a raised-bed garden that we'll set in place in a few weeks, fill to 12" with small wood debris from the woodlot and then 12" of soil on top. He's promised to build me a chicken coop for next spring ...

Are you doing a Hugelkultur bed? Do you have experience with it because I'm intrigued by the idea?

orthodoc 02-16-2014 11:22 AM

I have no experience with it, but I'm going to give it a try. It makes sense and cuts in half the amount of dirt required to fill a 24" high raised bed.

A customer made a comment to me this morning about me usually working on Sunday.
I looked at him a little gormlessly, because it's only usually my regular customers that remember my shifts and I wasn't sure I knew him.

He kindly repeated himself and I relised what he'd actually said was "You must be Sundae."
It was Carruthers! How good to see another Dwellar, especially while I'm working. I'd had a bit of a frantic morning one way or another, including a large dot com order which involves messing up my spotless cheese counter. Something I shared with Carruthers who listened politely.

I'm still here, but about to go on tills.
Thanks for making my morning, Carruthers.

Oh that's totally cool!

Griff 02-19-2014 05:33 AM

Good for one morning smile!

Griff 02-19-2014 05:37 AM

"Gormless" gives me a new vocabulary word to shoehorn in today.

DanaC 02-19-2014 06:16 AM

Gormless - totally lacking in gorm.

Awesome! Next time bring a camera, I don't know if we've ever seen what Carruthers looks like...

Perhaps that's just as well! :eek:

Nice! Take a selfie with the two of you, next time.
