Yes, this is *that* blog entry ...

You know, the first one after not blogging for like a month.

So here is a couple of daisy's from the garden.

Once again, life is busy, but thanks to having a day off from work and basically unplugging from the Internet I feel like I'm starting to catch up on things and starting to feel balance again.

Work is still crazy, but I'm getting used to that. It will still be a while before things settle back down into a routine.

I've finished some things and started some things. I will post them all separately.

This past weekend we went strawberry picking. I got my canning fix and out of one bucket of strawberries I got 12 - 8 ounce jars and 6 pints of strawberry jam. It is very yummy if I do say so myself.

I have also collected a new hobby. I am now a geocacher. Last Monday I got my new handheld GPS. It took me a while to figure it out. But once I did, everything else seems to be just falling into place. We got this one because it has all the maps you could want. Some GPSs make you buy the maps and the cheap ends up expensive. And since I figured I'd want this to OTR directions as well, this one seemed like the perfect one. I'm very happy with it.

So far we have found three geocaches. We even discovered a cemetery that we didn't know existed. It's somewhere around 100 years old but someone is still taking care of it. There were little flags next to some of the tombstones. I'd love to go back there and stay longer but the flying bugs were bad even with having repellent on.

My baby tomatoes seem to be doing great.

They are about 3 weeks old and are just getting their second set of true leaves. The are looking pretty healthy. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I know at some point they are going to be too big for my little bookshelf green house. I may make a light stand out of PVC so I can adjust the lights once these guys are in bigger pots. I'm debating on whether to bring the bigger bookshelf greenhouse up from the garage. I've have to rearrange some stuff in the living room if I do. Then I suppose I'd have a good excuse to start even more plants.
