A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That


This week, it's a little bit of this, a little bit of that. Outdoors and indoors.
Two more of the 100 Species Challenge, and getting the guest room together--which is what I am doing when I am not teaching, preparing to teach, or doing the regular chores that keep the household from falling apart!

First, we go outside for two more of the 100 Species Challenge!

33. Bouteloua dactyloides: Buffalo grass.
Here mixed with weeds and Blue Gramma grass. (counted last September).

34. Atriplex canescens: Four wing salt-bush. Here, it is a brighter spring green than I have seen in June for a very long time. This is likely due to the very strange monsoon-like afternoon rains we have been getting for the past two weeks.

Now, we go back inside to check on the progress of the Library/Guest Bedroom.

Shayna is excited to “help” as I unpack books and order them on the new bookshelves. These books have been packed for three years, and I feel like I am greeting old, half-forgotten friends with every box.

I brought my rocker in from our bedroom, where it was looking crowded into a corner. We got an inexpensive mattress and box springs for the bed, and the bedcovers were one of those sets on clearance at a Big Box store. The set came with the sheets, shams, and decorative pillows, as well as the bedspread. A good deal indeed, I picked it up last January.

I teach this afternoon and evening, a full three classes, so I must get to preparations for a long day on hard floors! (I did get the sandals . . . and that’s another blog entry).

My small “t”, “c” and “h” are not working on blogger, although they work fine in Word. So I am writing in Word and using copy-paste. That’s enough of that for now!

That's going to be so beautiful, and so satisfying!
