So the dog and the husband are into their physical therapy. Basil had her second back (right) knee reconstructed. She is doing fine but because she thinks she is all better we need to keep her on a leash so she doesn’t go tear-assing after bunnies and blow out her new joint. Dad has been in physical therapy for the past couple of months trying to get his sacroiliac joint to unfreeze and to get he muscles to quit trying go clamp down and render him crippled. It’s getting better but it is oh so painful.
In addition, we are working on getting our house in the shitty ready for sale. We have a bathroom that needs to be re-done and they start on Monday. This project costs more than the entire greenhouse setup. Me thinks contractors are shysters. Oh well, once we get this done, Zina is going apartment hunting for a place for us to hole up in the city for work. Having the burden of two places to upkeep while both of us work and a son who is in college is just too much. It will be a welcome relief.
Here is a video update of the greenhouse. Considering that we are dealing with a plague of grasshoppers this year, it looks like we will still have a harvest worthy of Colorado homesteaders. Our freezers are completely filled with meat because of the chickens and pigs we’ve processed, so all of our produce must either be eaten, canned or dehydrated. Usually this time of year we make a trip to Munson Farm in Boulder to get a bunch of sweet corn to freeze and use for the year… this year we simply don’t have room so it looks like when we need corn we will use what we have left or go to Whole Foods to buy organic.
So all is going well. The dog is healing up, my hip is doing much better though not perfect. My most recent mental melt down is being treated and it appears that all will right itself with work (I was convinced it wouldn’t). So whatever you do, whatever you fill your time with, enjoy the adventure. After all…. what else is there?
