June 5: Our new in-house OCD test:
Real-life picture layout on our welcome-wall (first wall you see walking into house).
June 8: The newest member of our crew at Willow Rock Farm: flew her home from the Palmer airport.
June 13: My work over the last week: organizing (and thinning) the books in my library.
A job I haven’t done since before we moved here.
It was fabulous to discover/recognize the pattern of my “collecting.”
June 15: Got all three freezers emptied/defrosted/inventoried this afternoon. A few people commented on the soggy ice cream. (It all took about as long as you’d expect…)
Still in awe of the accomplishment, and figuring out the best way to meal-plan with the new information.
June 18: Pleased to announce that ‘that magazine project’ I’ve been talking about for months is now live.
Wyn (wynmag.com) is an online magazine focused on providing resources and hope for mental and emotional healing. Each month’s issue has a specific theme that runs through all the articles.
I am so excited to be a part of this project with amazing women from around the globe.
Please stop by and join the conversation on the blog.
June 19: Wheee 2a.m. and a gentle tiredness on top of a feeling of productivity. Got some good writing done and kids are at Gma’s so I can sleep in.
Dunno if you can tell from these pix, but this is Griffin scratching himself six ways from Sunday.
Can’t tie him out b/c he’s helpless against the bugs, and now I can’t even walk him, because we’re both *mobbed* instantly.
Finally just turned him loosen out the front door (which I *never* do on purpose). He was back five minutes later: more itchy, but less whining. Took care of business, I assume.
June 27: Vamp bucket. The mosquito magnet catches them, but this model at least has trouble getting them into the collection plate.
Freakiest part: we’re still chewed on in the length of time it takes to cross the yard, and the dog continues to be scared to go outside.
