Still here!

I've been thinking for a long time that I needed to update my blog, but it seems to always stay a little further down on the "todo" list than the things that actually do get done.  To be honest, I'm drowning in a sea of pictures, I am much better at taking them than at deleting, cropping and publishing them.  Getting them downloaded onto my computer is about as far as I get most days.  I also ran out of memory for the blog and my online pictures, so I've been trying to clean up and delete to find some space (yes, it would be easier to just buy more space but I'm stubborn!). 

So for a quick "nonpictorial" update, we are doing fine.  We've both been hit by a cold/flu and just the general vegetative state that cold weather and dreary days seems to bring.  I'm taking a class for Master Gardener status, so my Tuesdays have become very long days.  I'm enjoying the information and can't wait to get started working on our yard/mudpit.  We have spread over 200 lbs of seed in the hopes of having some grass this summer.  It seems everytime we spread seed that we soon get a deluge of rain, so I believe we will have a wonderful lush yard down by the pond, but I'm not sure we'll have much up around the house!

We went to the orchid show, and this past weekend we went to the Butterfly House, both wonderful ways to spend a Sunday afternoon.  However, I can manage to take a hundred pictures, so I still have plenty of work to do!  I promise to post pictures soon, this will be my priority this weekend, as Mark has a meeting in St. Louis and two talks to give this weekend.

More to follow!
