Great Xmas

What a fun, comfortable family Christmas we had. Kept the house warm with a roaring fire while we exchanged presents. Then we packed up a bunch of snacks & some perogas and drove out to see big Sis for the evening.

So now it's easy for me to wish the whole world a Happy New Year too! It's always kinda weird as the last few days play out. We can all use the extra well wishing.

Mid Winter start of planting season

Dad filled a couple of 288 trays yesterday with fresh made soil and I've just about got the plant/sprout room cleaned up. Gotta buy a few seeds but should have early spring greens planted before new year.

I've been having a good time in the dark mornings writing on some software for android apps. Should have my first apps up on Market in a month or so.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Good skygazing to you!

Hooray! Full lunar eclipse tonight! Got my eye on the radar images, looks like there's a clear spot on the back of the next front. Should be through in about 2-3 hours, leaving (maybe) an hour window for viewing right around 10:30. Good sky gazing to you! Thanks Uncle Bob (Amos) for getting me into the stars.

Showery Fall Wind-down

Headin' out to do a little prunin' on the apple trees between rain showers. Mt Fielder is looking quite pretty on this rather temperate late fall day. Hope you're all being productive and/or having fun.

Fall ruminations

Wouldn't you know it, just when I overcome a couple of hurdles and start to make a little progress on my software endeavors, the rain goes ahead and moves out. Darn! good weather means outdoors work.

Not that we were totally sedentary in the rain. Yesterday Dad and I dug a trench in the big greenhouse to drain one of the air inlets and then we fenced an area in which to slaughter the hogs. <-How's that for not leaving a preposition at the end? Also set up a tarp cover for if it's raining, probably the reason it stopped all butterfly effect and stuff.

So we'll probably kill the hogs this weekend sometimes, not sure if I should post pics of that.... probably not a good idea.

Hope y'all are enjoying the fall wind-down.
