notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

Giving Thanks

Well, Niki's doing the obligatory Thanksgiving thing, and Jeff left his in comments over there, so I guess I'd better give a few gratefuls myself:

1. Grandma has Cleo out of the house, I slept until 11:53 this morning, Vikki is cooking a Turkey, and the Talking Heads are on (Friday Random 10 (Thursday Edition) (Special Thanksgiving Edition) in progress). It doesn't get a whole lot better than this.

2. Fresh coffee from a french press.

3. I'm not working today. At all. I'm not even responding to e-mails. Nothing.

4. I don't have to listen to this asshole for the next four years.

5. I can stop trying to think of things I'm grateful for until next year.

Update - 11:30PM: If anybody knows why I capitalized "turkey" in this post, please feel free to provide an explanation in the comments.
