Self-sufficient ... in the town !
Ah , nothing like it...growing your own ! And YES is can be done in the town , I`ve known of people keeping bees in the town (all you need is a flat roof for the hives !)...anyways , Aideen has been helping me propogate herbs and such so we will have more plants next year ,and shes been writing up in her garden journal...another homeschool project ! Heres some of our "new" plants...and our window boxes in the front windows are overflowing with thyme and parsley...the smell is amazing after the rain ! The knitting is coming along too...but slowly...WIP (thats work in progress to non-knitters out there) are : new socks for Aideen and Daisy in a wonderful rainbow coloured wool, and also the "R" I`m knitting for the poetry societry is gettign there...sure by slow...the pattern they sent me is made up of dots on graph and is driving this dyslexic Doris dotty :0) but, it will get done ! Sean is working away cleaning out his shed, in order to get ready for the coming winter months, he hopes this year he will get some projects done in the shed...why does he need a kettle in there then ??? and Daisy has found herself a new "game" Aideens connect4 that Daisy Lila and Papa Gene sent from America...she walks around everywhere with it and just opens it and sets up a game anywhere ! Its so funny , she just drops the yellow and red counters in and announces that she "wins"...but hey shes happy ! Now i`m off to read this months "Home Farmer" magazine !
