I have been pretty terrible at updating this space. In my defense, my life has been pretty quiet, and; I personally find it super annoying when I click onto a blog just to read a post about how the author is too busy to update, but, hey! Thanks for stopping by!
I mean, why bother?
So, clearly I haven't. Bothered.
Anyhoodle, there have been a few events in life that are worth sharing, hence this here post. So, let's get started!
Kristi finally got the notification that her VISA had been approved on Thursday, October 5th. The UK embassy overnighted the VISA, and, Kristi had it in her hot little hands Friday morning. She flew out of Hooterville on the first flight out Saturday morning, and, after changing planes in Denver, Toronto, and Luxembourg; she finally landed in Manchester Sunday evening. Upon landing, she hopped in a hired car and made the two hour drive to the small village in Wales that she and Erin will call home for the foreseeable future.
Since arriving, she and Erin have toured several castles, as well as the other small villages surrounding their own. They are really happy and I am so happy for them. I miss them like crazy, but that can't be helped.
I pulled six large butternut squash off the vines, plus one that had grown through the wires on the trellis, which required me to cut in half in order to harvest (I diced it and threw it in the freezer). There are still five butternuts on the vine and I am hoping they will be ready this weekend, because I need to pull the vines out, completely. I also need to pull up the last of the tomato plants, peppers, and the last rogue basil plant; then my gardening will be done for another year.
I had hoped to have a greenhouse in by now, but; Hugh has thrown up roadblock after roadblock (as a sidenote; This coming spring, I will be taking a page from his Procurement of Substantial Cash Purchases Utilizing Joint Marital Funds playbook by purchasing the damn thing first and telling him about it, later. Preferably upon delivery).
Anyway, that's a little bit of what's been going on around here. I know it's not much, but at least I didn't ask anyone to jump over to my Instagram for a Day in the Life rather than writing a post. For the record; I also hate it when bloggers do that.
