What else I found in the yard this morning……


……a sprouting potato that I buried under a foot of straw many weeks ago.  I had almost given up on it.  As soon as it stays warm, I’ve got some other plants that I’m going to bury there.  I wonder how sweet potatoes would do?

I was dreading going to the DMV this morning.  I just knew I was going to be there for hours.  To my surprise, I was only in there for 20 minutes and the cost was about a 10th of what I had thought it would be.  Phew….that had me stressed out all day yesterday.  I’m sure glad that’s over with.  Now I need to get my emissions done to the Evil Twin some time next week and I’ll be able to do the rest online.  That reminds me, I better apply for a DMV pin number so that I can actually do that.  It usually takes a week for it to come in by mail.

Last night I took my laptop to work to see if I could upload my photos, but nnnooooo, it didn’t work.  The part of the site for the photos was blocked. 

Turns out that I am off on Sunday.  Woohoo, I'm going to go see my Mom.  After she hugs, kisses, feeds, and spanks me, I know I will be feeling a lot better.  Got to get out of this gloomy mood that I’m in.  I’m missing the days that I could just pack up my car, get away, and start over.


  1. I've never heard of sweet potatoes being grown in straw; they're no relation to potatoes, you know.

  2. Donna...yes, I know, but I've seen some amazing veggies grown in straw bales.

  3. Hi, you asked about fried green tomatoes. There are many different ways to prepare, flour, flour and cornmeal mixed, cornmeal or bread crumbs. You can flour, dredge in egg and then cover in one of the above. I just keep it simple...salt and pepper, flour and fry. I may try the flour and cormmeal mix one day. Glad you didn't have to spend all morning at the DMV...Have a great weekend, Sheila

  4. Sheila...thanks, I'll have to try that. You have a great weekend too...I know that I will :)


I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
