Today:

Finally get the bathroom that was brooding chicks cleaned. Ew.

Rake up goat pen. Trim hooves. Tether them for a bit.

Plant some stuff outside. Onions, chard, wild flowers, clover, beets, snap peas, parsnips.

Buy the parsnip seeds. (That should be first I guess)

Knit more washcloths for the kitchen. Freddie keeps eating them.

Color eggs.

Chicken bathroom fully de-chickened.

Parsnip seeds bought. Along with more nasturtium, beets and kohl rabi.

Compost turned today instead of tomorrow because I realized I had nowhere left to put new manure.

Eggs colored.

Knitting!

Tomorrow’s to do:

Sit around and think about not watching Game of Thrones until Michael gets back. •_•

Art, maybe?

Turn compost.

It’s amazing how lazy I get when I have no outside pressure. Michael is out of town and Mia crashed right after school. I haven’t seen her since I got home.

Popsicles for dinner? Sure! That’s fruit, right?

So all the shit I talked about my hairdresser yesterday is erased. Sort of. With a wash and blow dry -minus the round brush, serum, mousse and paste- I like it. I just don’t understand why she tried to attack my hair with all that crap to disguise the actual cut! I don’t do “volume” or “edgy”. I said I want something that was low maintenance and she styled for 30 minutes after cutting for 15.

Anyway, I guess I will go back again. I’m just going to insist that she back off with the squeeze bottles and jars of goo. I was sure I wouldn’t be able to do anything with it. It is actually easier than the last cut.

God I did take a picture but just can’t. Maybe after I wash the massive amounts of styling product out and try to do something else with it. She even braided my bangs to one side (I think to hide the fact that she royally fucked up).

blech! me 

2PM

Got my haircut again with the same lady as last time. Last time I really liked it. This time I really want to go buy a hat. She said she learned a new technique that she’d been trying on everyone and thought it would be good on my hair. My hair is now too poofy and shredded. Gross.

I think she could tell I was not totally thrilled, but didn’t do anything to change it. I even said I thought I looked like my grandma on hairdresser day. She just kept saying, ” it’s great! I like it!”
No. Who cares? Not your head.

One side of my head feels like it has a big bubble in it that I can’t hear through. The other ear is ringing. This is so disorienting.

11AM

Basil, dill, and mesclun mix salad with almonds and parm sounds like heaven right now. Too bad no time for lunch.

Oh yeah, I get to put the hive back where I wanted it. Because the finished compost is still frozen to the ground and I can’t move it to start a new pile. So the new pile is going where the hive was. It’s warm, but there’s still ice in unexpected places.

9AM

To do today by 6:00 (yeah, right):

Clean house, Finish cleaning chicken coop, Finish weeding strawberry bed, Plant carrots, peas, lettuce, spinach, etc…, Pick up dog poop, Start on goat pen, Rake pine needles & cones in front yard, Clean chick tub, What else am I forgetting?

Spring is my nemesis.

I set up the bee hive. Michael doesn’t like where it is. My second best option has been our catch-all spot. I started clearing out the junk and leftovers… But the burn barrel full of pine needles and cones, and a a sealed 50 gallon drum of who-knows-what that’s been there since we moved in, are frozen to the ground. If they don’t come free by the time the bees get here, I guess it’s staying put. So there.

I cleaned up my flower garden today. I think the cold killed my lavender and sage. We will see. But the goldenrod, valerian, calendula and hollyhocks are fine.
