    Default Friday Roll Call, 2/17

    Happy Glorious Friday to you all!

    The weather here is going to be near 60 for the next 4-6 days. May not sound like much to those of you in the south, but around here it's usually 30 this time of year. So should I just enjoy it, or should I worry it's a result of global warming?

    Sooooo, I already have bedding and towels on the clothesline. Later I'll be doing one last clean up of the flower beds before spring hits and bulbs start growing. I'll also be picking up all the sticks/limbs that came down in the last couple of really windy days.

    This weekend dh and I will hit the trails up at the Dunes, he for a run, me for more of a walk/slow jog. I did my first mile in 3.5 months yesterday, relatively pain free. I'll slowly add the miles back in as my knee and foot allow. Then we'll do a big grocery shop to get ready for our Mardi Gras party next weekend.

    What's on the schedule for you today and this weekend?

    Sounds awesome, Carol. I am in west Michigan and sharing in your weather joy!

    Today, I have some social problems homework to do some health homework to do, and some anatomy and physiology studying to do, while my 11 month old crawls and plays around me.

    We have decided to pull our 11 year old out of the public Montessori school at the end of this year, so she is in school today. When I pick her up, we are heading to our favorite consignment shop in town called The Conscious Collective. Then, maybe we'll take a walk or visit the park! I'm excited to start having my baby outside more!

    Here's the kid with a drill in her hand helping other kids tap maple trees on Tuesday. I hope it's not so hot we can't get that sap to run! Crazy night last night, the trees are positively gushing. This is for her Syrup to Cider class, a class about all things farming around here (maple syrup>gardening>chickens>food preservation>fruit picking>apple cidering). We'll bottle up our sap and take it to our friends' farm for processing today and tomorrow.

    Other than that, things are busy. Carol, DD and I are listening to an audiobook called Spark about brain chemistry and exercise; it's right up your alley. (She'll probably use the book with 9th grade health with Oak Meadow but right now it's just a good listen for the two of us)

    I would like to get in line with INMOM for the farmcycle class. It looks so fun!!!

    We came home from the library this week with a stack of citrus gardening books. Hopefully I will get to read and absorb what wisdom they have to impart. Im also preparing for some yard concrete work to be done, so trying to figure out how I want irrigation adjusted, and where and what I can plant. Exciting and a little scary, just because of the money outlay.
    So if its too wet to go outside much, that is what I will be doing this weekend.
    If Sunday looks like it wont rain, I may try coaxing Hubby into taking another trip to the desert while the weather is cool. (Cool being in the 60s, if it was the 30s we would probably be celebrating by turning on the heater.)

    So nothing super exciting.
