My Garden

Lotta, from Lottas Trätdgård, asked me about my garden, what must be forever ago.  I went outside and took some lovely photos.  Which, I have to say, just seemed pretty dreary in late October, but now that it is December, it looks so warm and inviting.  It just a lesson, I need to learn, love the place and time that you are in, you’ll miss it when it’s gone.  I’m sure the heavy cold drops of rain that are falling tonight will be nostalgic at some point in my life…well maybe.

Lotta, so you know, I live in a new housing development, so everything from the grass, and even some of the dirt has been brought in over the last three years, much of it by my husband and myself.  Now that I’ve said that, I’m pretty happy.  There is a TON of more work to do, but it is coming along and starting to come together.  So here is the peak at my garden.



PS the birch gives me a taste of home, I hope to have two more in the upcoming years.

My Husband Called Me a Geek

While I was reading some blog about Donny Osmond on Dancing with the Stars, I was lead to a link on Hulu.  Hulu?  What is that?  It's cable for your computer.

I don't know about you, but I really can't stand to watch TV these days.  My favorite day is Wednesday because I can watch NCIS on USA.  Otherwise there really isn't a lot on.  There is V, but I'm forgetting to TIVO it, then there is Desperate Housewives, but otherwise, I'm just flipping around just trying to find something with a storyline.

So today, I found Hulu.  It’s a website that offers tons of shows for free, and return you have to sit through a couple of 30 second commercials.  Honestly I don’t think there are two minutes worth of commercials.  There are tons of shows to click on, such as the pilot for V that I missed the first critical 15 minutes.  I'm going to watch it, but today I watched a Lou Grant episode.  It was great.  I loved looking at the dial telephones, metal desks, and the 70's cars driving by and in fact I enjoyed storyline.  Next time Monday or Tuesday rolls around and I want to watch some TV and WWF is on instead of NCIS, I am tuning into Hulu.  So, my husband has called me a geek for watching 70's and 80's programming.  What  can I say, I'm a child of the 70's and the 80's.  I’m sure I will be watching RhodaMary Tyler Moore or even 21 Jump Street down the road.

PS my husband is watching Lou Grant right now, who really is the geek?
