Time to get it together

This being  the first time to blog, I am a hard time getting into a rhythm of postings. Wifey said I have been getting lax with it. Funny, I thought she started it and I was going to add to it occasionally.  Oh well, I will keep this marching along. I am rather enjoying it.

The garden is stalled this year. Trees have blocked most of the days sun and I have tried to prune them back but I can't take anymore without killing the trees. This is my first year to do this and that is where I learn from my mistakes. I should have better luck in the fall when the leaves fall off the trees.

Our dream is to be little more independent and self sustainable when we get out little place to expand. Until then we are learning and practicing while we can. Gardening is just one more step to this dream.

I am beside myself with excitement my kids will be here soon for the summer. They will be here in less than a week and I am planning lots of fun for all of us. It will be fun having them help in the garden and teaching them new skills.
I am planning to take Big Sis to her first time to the gun range and teach her gun saftey and shooting techniques, maybe bust a couple of clays this summer. Little Man gets to watch and learn about saftey also.

The lodge had a Gift of Life blood drive this past weekend and was able to collect over a hundred units for the Scottish Rite Children's Hospital. It was a beautiful day and we had a lot of fun.

So mote it be.
