It was such an honor to be asked to speak at Nelson Middle school in Renton for their Impact Day about pursuing your dreams. The kids were amazing.
Yesterday, Amelia and I started work clearing an area in our yard for a composting bin. I decided after watching a reality show about Alaskan Homesteaders that I should attempt to use the extra wood and scraps around our yard to build our own composting bins. We cleared the spot and then I was perusing google for a prototype when I ran into a problem…step one: don’t use treated wood!
That was the wood I had been planning on using from a deck remodel. Argh.
Step two: cutting the wood. That dusty circular saw in the garage looks pretty sharp AND baseball in the yard with Patrick, Ty, Baby Grif and Amelia seems like so much fun!
I love Halloween. It is one of my absolute favorite holidays. This year I had to deal with my pesky cat, Duncan getting into my garden beds…see my Renton Reporter column.
Learning a few tips and tricks from local gardeners, I finally figured out a way to grow pumpkins! Check out these glorious beauts! I am so friggin’ proud of myself.
City Fruit is a non profit organization based in Seattle that picks fruit and distributes it to hungry people…what a concept!
