Musing of a Locavore; Rantings of a Madman

If it traveled more than 100 miles to my plate, chances are I don't want to eat it :(


Lazy Day, Ramblings, Great Intentions...

Posted by Boyd Craven III on September 21, 2013 at 5:00 PM

Today we had great intentions of getting the rest of the volunteer strawberry plants that my wife has painstakenly potted into the ground today.  I am usually up with the sun so I didn't set my alarm.  Sadly, I overslept the drop off time frame for my bags of home made tortilla chips at the farmers market.  Le Sigh......

So.......... I hop in the bath tub and await for the rest of the house to start waking up.  I was reading Grid Down - Reality bites by Bruce "Buckshot".  Very interesting book, and I love the parts about trapping and how the traps were set out.  That sent me chasing squirrels till the rest of the house woke up.

What's chasing squirrels?  It's when I go looking for information on the 'net or in books just because something interested me.  A Pot of tea later I was finished, and the kids were up.

It was almost 9:30-10:00 when I realized the sun still hadn't come up.  It wasn't raining when I let the dogs out earlier.. but it sure was now!!  There goes strawberry plantings!!!

Instead of having great intentions of working outside, we turned our energies inside.  My wife started the mountain of laundry that having 4 guys in the house can pile up in a hurry.. I fixed breakfast and lunch for the kiddo's, picked up the house, and did some more squirrell chasing.  

I had the urge, and the time to write (between folding and putting up clothing) so I was debating on working on Mr. Fixit, Dead at last 3 or a homesteading series.  The ideas for the first and last were exploding.  I finally decided to do some more on my homesteading series since it was the smaller project.  Today I finished an article on cottage foods, and gave ideas and what we do on our homestead with cottage foods at the farm stand and farmer's market.  I am thinking for my basic articles I'm going to charge $0.99 and my detailed plans for $2.99.  What do you all think?  My fiction I am going to keep in smaller chunks and priced to match that also.

And I just realized that I haven't turned on the TV all day... I am turning out to be a lousy football fan this year.  At least my sweat pants and big comfy tee shirt were remembered for a day of rest, relaxation and great intentions.
