I am kind of torn when it comes to feeding wildlife. Many people here feed birds in the summertime too, which for me in completely unheard of. I guess it is just one of the many things that are different here in the United States. Others include the option to de-claw your cats, windows that don't open from the side which makes them really difficult to keep clean, and having to drive to a park in order to go for a walk. We decided to put a couple of bird-feeders out when the nights got frosty. The birds and the squirrels love them, as do our cats.
I haven't been particularly inspired when it comes to outfits lately. Who knows what it is - the gloomy weather is a strong contender. Instead I have been planning our veggie garden for the coming year. There are so many things I want to grow - herbs, lettuce, spinach, carrots, peppers, tomatoes - and I am loving the huge amounts of varieties to choose from. (I mean, miniature peppers called Jingle Bells? I am sold!) My past experiences with gardening range from watering my mom's small greenhouse and weeding our potato field when I was little. I have never actually grown anything myself. I still hope that my mom's extensive gardening has left its mark on me. After all, I have seen her do it for over 20 years.
