I amuse myself

Bigger and bigger

As you may remember, this was taken June 7th.

Lookie, lookie...what a difference 18 days can make.

Here is a close up of some of the good and not so good that is growing. I don't think I can ever find something nice to say about the green/red/yellow pepper; therefore, I will stop here. BUT the little tomato, I can't wait to try them. Right now, we have four visible tomatoes.

We are very excited how our garden is thriving right now. Wezul and I hope we can build a second planter box next year. :)

Wezul has worked for the past two weeks. Woo hoo! We do not know if Wez will have "regular" work for next week. I am amazed I haven't had a complete and utterly nervous breakdown yet. Just kidding! We can't complain. I can't wait to be able to blog that Wezul has gone back to a regular full-time 40 hour per week employee. I know he can't wait for it either. I know that he is terrified that if this continues much longer he will be fitted with a mop, hair net, and gloves for his new profession...Pfeifle Housecleaning Extraordinare and Yard Boy. Yes, this includes him scrubbing tubs and toilets...hmmm...I will be selling the pictures for $5 a piece to any interested party. Haha!!

40 Hours...Jumping for Joy

I cannot remember the last time Wezul got 40 hours in one week...I think his last 40 hour week was at the beginning of March.

I am enjoying having my chauffeur/carpool buddy this week.

We have no clue if Wezul will have work next week. I am crossing my fingers he does have work, I need the 20-30 minutes of extra sleep I get while he drives...haha...just kidding...(maybe).

However, Wezul isn't sitting by watching the grass grow either. He is working hard for Wezul Web Design even though the accountant is twiddling her thumbs.

Our garden continues to grow...and grow...can't wait for the tomatoes to ripen....

Other than that, we are becoming experts at finding the silver linings in the up and down nature of this lovely recession....

After three weeks, Jason will be working next week. It may even be a full week of work. We are not jumping for joy just yet. There is no guarantee for any work after next week - but it is a start we will gladly take.

I also survived my swift water training. I have a few new bruises thanks to the experience, swallowed a lot of nasty water, and spent the day with alot of firemen. Ooo la la!!

This is a quick review of the starting of our planter's box. We took this picture on May 4th. The tomato plant and various bell pepper plants were itty bitties. The white radishes, green onions, and spinach were just mere seeds that had not germinated yet.

I took this picture this evening. What a difference a month makes.

Doughnuts, Millstock Music & Art Faire, and more...

This was a short week for moi! Wezul has not worked for the past two weeks at his "usual" job. He has been busy with the web design work; however, it isn't in the cha ching mode yet and it will probably not be in cha ching mode for AWHILE. I have a really long day ahead of me this week (more about that later); therefore, I decided to take Friday off to burn some credit time that I had maxed out on and spend the day with the Wez!!

What a day it was! Can you say National Doughnut Day?!? Yes, we took full advantage of it. All I have to say is Krispy Kreme. Unlike an unnamed other doughnut distributor, you were able to get a free doughnut without purchasing anything; however, the hot doughnut now sign was on. Yes, we did buy a dozen. It is impossible not to buy them when the hot doughnut sign is on. It is against the law of physics to escape the vortex that is a fresh, hot original glazed Krispy Kreme doughnut.

The weather the past few days has been quite lovely! It's been raining; however, the temperatures have been amazing for it being June. Today, I needed the pullover I left in the trunk of the car. Highly unusual for us down here. Wezul and I decided to check out the Millstock Music & Art Faire in Clayton today. Wezul found out that Dread34 was going to be playing. One of the guitar players in the band is married to a friend of Wezul. His friend has invited us time after time to see her husband play, and it finally worked out we could make one of his gigs. We are thoroughly happy that we did! We completely enjoyed their set. The only thing that could have made it better was if it was free...oh was FREE!!!

Back to why I needed to burn some of my credit time. On Tuesday, I am traveling to Charlotte for the day. It is going to be a long day. I have to be at the office around 5:30am and won't get home until 9pm-ish. I have to go to the U.S. National Whitewater Center for Swift Water Rescue Training for work. Can you say "dreading this like getting my wisdom teeth pulled without pain killers"? I guess I wouldn't be worrying so much about what I am getting into if I didn't have to sign a waiver stating I would not sue if I get injured or die....hmmmmm...not quite the warm fuzzies I hoped for. However, with all the insane chicken yellow belly fear I have, it is something that is necessary for the job. Though I would prefer to have the normal training I went through when I first got there...jumping in a pool with my waders, jumping in a lake with my clothes on, sticking my hands & arms into a huge barrel of frigid ice and water to unlock a key...not quite sure I am ready for swift following water...laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

What a Nice Night!!

It is hard to believe. It is the beginning of June, and we are sitting outside with our Mac Books surfing away. If the summer stays like this, it just might be pleasant this year. Even more scary than this weather that is permitting us to surf and have fun outside - Jason and I have survived 6 years of marriage together....
Darn mosquitos...they are being completely obnoxious right now!!
