happy new year

With prepping for xmas and new years there wasn't alot of time for me to do anything but relax these last few days. Xmas was a success and we have been busy doing nuthin the last cuppla days.
Yesterday afternoon I hitched the old trailer to the bicycle and headed off to do some grocery shopping. Picked up a lot of staples that we were running low on. Rice, taters, oatmeal, pasta etc. It never astonishes me as to how much I can put into the bike trailer and ride home with.. I always get alot of looks but WTFCares. Its green living at its best.
This morning I put our king size blanket out on the line to sun dry as it has been warm outside for the last few days and a sun dried blanket smells so good..
WHile on the way back I was thinkin again that in just about a month we will be starting to get the cool weather veggies going for the garden. I can almost taste the french breakfast radishes and lettuces etc now. This store bought stuff just does not taste the same as homegrown. Def time to start gatherin the compost material and begin grabbin bags of manure and compost from the nursery as supplementals.
While searchin the library for readin material I cam across an underground book on homemade moonshine that I may have to meander thru and see if we can truly set up a small in kitchen still for home use. yum yum. Homemade hooch.
Anyhow hopefully 2012 wil be a better year at the Trash stead.. One can only ponder the possibilities....
