My very mundane daily life is teaching me that good timing and good tools are 95% of everything. Also, that I'm incredibly impatient.

Appreciating a financial cushion for the first time, and hoping it's not tested anytime soon!

Today I processed my first chicken. I may have to stick to plants...

    This one was about to cannibalize another hen. :( But yes, natural causes is a lot less messy, I think!

    I find wearing gloves helps. There is something about the smell while processing them that stays on your hands for a long time even after numerous washes that is awful. Gloves eliminate that.

    Yeah I noticed the lingering smell; I thought it was psychosomatic, lol. We have a nail brush I used multiple times. I'll have to remember to get some gloves and keep them on hand. Thanks!

Another group of plants in the ground (finally); that was...hopefully worth the effort.

    We went to a native plant sale last weekend and picked up a few things. We have a poor track record but... we'll see.

    Me too! I just keep trying. I have learned that house plants are safer with others, though!

Got a new denim skirt from The Skirt Outlet. I am super excited! Here's hoping it's durable. :)

On days like this, I can't tell if I'm the most awesome ever, or the biggest loser...maybe a bit of both. :D

Ok update: it was not an auger that DH made; I am dumb. It's a mini PVC well drill. And it is still beautiful. :D

My beloved DH made me a water auger for my birthday; this is genuinely the most beautiful thing I've seen in a while. :D

    No? Maybe I have the word wrong, lol. It wouldn't be the first time! Google says I did. Ok it's like a mini PVC well drill, lol. It's still beautiful! I'm trying to set t-posts and our dirt is tougher than my sledgehammering skills (which are decidedly lacking).
