Today I arranged to have the Miata repaired. (Replace the RH fender, repair the bumper cover, repaint, and clear coat) The car is in queue and should be complete in about three weeks.
One of my favorite things about going on vacation is losing track of the day of the week. The kids are on Spring break this week and so am I.

Today J' asked me "What day of the week is it?" All I knew for sure was that it was not Sunday. At least two of us are really enjoying Spring break.

The Next Obsession

Spring break started today at 3:00 pm. While I do have a lot to do in the next week (related to school), I should have adequate time to have some fun as well.

I have been planning a garden this year. I believe the last time I planted a garden was 10 years ago. Prior to the last garden, I had seen a segment on Square Foot Gardening on PBS. (I even bought a book on the subject.) This seemed interesting to me at the time and I ended up with a 12 square foot elevated garden. The garden consisted of two 3'x4' boxes set on platforms about 2.5 feet off the ground. In this small garden I planted two types of tomatoes, squash, okra, eggplant, bell peppers, water melon, and onions.

This year the garden will be in the ground. It will probably consist of four 4'x4' plots about three feet apart. My last garden suffered from limited sunlight. This will not be an issue as the intended garden location gets full sunlight.

I have not yet determined the complete list of crops this year, but it will certainly contain tomatoes, squash, and okra. Any requests?

As you can see, I have decided to recycle a previous obsession this year. Does this mean I am running out of new and original ideas. No way!

U2 - No Line on the Horizon

The new U2 album hits the stores on Tuesday. I am looking forward to it. Time to empty out a spot in the CD changer.
