First I LOVE our new location! Except it has been raining off and on since last weekend and we have discovered the driveway is super muddy with two large bogged down puddles… and we drive a Sentra.
Today it has just been me, the booger faces, and Claire bear(the dog) First thing this morning Hubs walks in with a new vacuum. I guess it was to butter me up for the fishing trip he was about to ask to go on and him getting out of working today. He did. he, also, caught a 2+ pound Bass what we ate for dinner!
After I moped the red mud out of the kitchen floor, again, I was inspired to go figure out how to fix the muddy driveway. As I stood there I realized I have one thing free, unwanted, and in abundance… pine straw! My idea is that the red clay will mix with the straw and eventually it will not be a low spot. If it ever dries out maybe it will become hard and packed down…we will see. So I set out to rake, transport, and fill at least one hole in the drive. I got half way done. Thanks to LOTS of “help” from the munchkins. I also, relized that the spot I want the garden will not work. it gets to shady in the evening. I’m going to have to watch though the next week and find the place(s) with the best sun, hopefully it will have great drainage too…
Lemon pepper fish, carrot sticks & raw ranch, and green beans for dinner. Not to “raw”, but super healthy. Hear is the link to the raw ranch I use IT IS THE BOMB DIGIDY! Click Here Mmmm. I plugged the recipe into Myfitnesspal.com and it is about 138 cals for 2 tbs. Regular ranch is about 140 for the same amount but the raw is full of cold and flu fighting fresh garlic and just better!
