My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

-e-mailed foundation about meeting next week to discuss fundraising for son's service dog
-e-mailed friends and family about fundraising e-mails
-set up a chore board for family
-setting up for dinner with friends donating carpet for autistic kid's pacing "habit"
-replied to e-mail re: interest in buying one of our goat babies
-rewrote CL ad for goat babies and chicks for sale
-wrote CL ad for getting donations for son's service dog
-posted link on facebook for CL ad for donations

Still to do:
-pay e.r. / medical bills (yeah, with what?!?!)
-clean kitchen and tidy house
-write letters to local colleges re: what requirements do they have for special needs students?
-remind son to vacuum and dust and clean his room and take a shower
-check on chickens and goats, collect eggs

SOOOO much more to do but I think this list will barely get done as it is. Today. You know.

Ooops. Still have lunch sitting beside me. It's over 2 hours old. Oh well. Will eat tonight.
