Has anyone seen my phone? This happens daily. But, this time I seem to have misplaced it really well…for almost a week now. I remember talking to my father one morning and haven’t seen it since. It could be anywhere from here to Lowes. Gah. I hate that thing. If you’re waiting for me to call you back (like you always are), it will be a bit longer.
Mary Mary quite contrary…ah. An old favorite. Rylie and I scampered all across town to buy veggie plants from local farms and pots and dirt. That’s right. I bought dirt. People, I have no green thumb. I am a little nervous. I have been known to kill ALOE– perhaps the world’s most resilient and healing plant. But, I really wanted to grow some ‘maters… and then I saw some peppers…and some cucumbers (or ‘cukes’, as the locals instructed me) SO we’re going for a little container garden this year. We’ll see.
Curt and I are buying a second home. Please don’t yell at me about the price or anything. We spend a LOT of time camping… and we plan to have it for the next 50 years. We gave my parents our super rad 3-man tent for Christmas (Yes, you can do that with loved things…I hereby free you from your fear!) since we increased in size and they decreased. I doubt all the goats will fit, but they’ve been having a hard time fitting them on the motorcycle anyway. We shall break in our vacation home this summer with an innagural trip to Big Sky Country. Daniel Charles and his better half need to meet their niece before she’s walking and they move on to Wine Country.
My given-to-me Kenmore sewing machine is being cleaned and greased and loved on at the local quilting store. In 2 weeks, the creating shall begin. WOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO! Look out, fabric scraps and old t-shirts! Rylie needs some new pants!
Blake (on American Idol…I know you know…don’t pretend) is absolutely amazing. We’ve never followed a season before but got hooked on this one, and I simply cannot get over this guy. He has style and talent and skills like I have never seen before. I don’t think he’s American Idol pop…but I do think he’s a legend-in-the-making and I am so glad that show will put him on the map. Good night, I love that kid. Nice try, Bon Jovi, saying America would have a hard time with his rendition of your “classic” the other night. We all know it was you who didn’t want the song jived with.
I think I’ll write a book. Or rather, I’m in the process of writing a book…it’s called The Adventures of Curt and Katie Mulder: life in Texas North and beyond. What do you think? It’ll even print your comments! This site also converts your Flickr photos into a picture book, makes recipe books…you name it. A real, live, hardback book. Love. It. So the question is: do I edit and take out all the (early) posts I’m embarrassed about or do I just leave it all in there for posterity’s sake? It makes me all itchy just thinking about it.
I’m trying to get a chicken video uploaded to YouTube for you…but it seriously says ‘8 hours to completion’ so check back this weekend. I’m pretty sure it’s Oscar-worthy.
I’m typing like you’re still reading.
Bravo to you if you still are.
I love you for it. I really really do.
I have visions of many of you fake-dead and gagging of boredom on the floor.
Get up! Tomorrow’s Friday!
