the Trash vitae

Trash is the editor-in-chief of an independent Colorado micro-publisher/ design studio. I dabble in digital photography, the lost art of film image making, and guerilla digital video. DrMAC Studios specializes in books and videos on self-reliance, gardening, dumpster diving, urban foraging and living off the excesses of others.

Before the storm:

Mrs Trash back went out again so I spent the day helping out around the stead. Did some dishes, cleaned up a tad inside and began to rake up all the pretty leaves which will become next years compost.. funfun.. crush them all. Coffee grinds, veggie leftovers and fruit scraps go into the pile all year. We turn once every 2 weeks and the snow/moisture keeps them wet and rotting..The heat during the day aids in the cooking.
It really helps with the soil. I cant see them going to landfills when our beds are in such dire need..
Anyhow took junior for a bus/bike ride down to the game store yesterday.. I am really beginning to like the warranties offered with game systems these days. For $15 you get a warranty with the system that if Anything goes wrong in 12 months bring it back and they wil give you a new system. Good call Gamestop. And these are on refurbished machines.
We left about 1 and came back a tad after 4.. While out we enjoyed a trip to the DOllar store.. .
By eveing mrs T felt a tad better so she made squirrel belly and taters with coonfat gravy ( haha chicken tenders and country gravey) With rooster sauve made for a yumyum dinnner.
