1.Because I’m now Madison and Mason‘s Guardian Angel, they will always be take #1. Due to her age, Madison can only be adopted with Mason! If you’d like to adopt them, let me know and I will have a matching fund drive on my blog as I did for Larisa.
2. Do you know a family who could adopt these kids? Maybe you do and you don’t realize it yet! Spread the word – these kids can’t get adopted if nobody knows they exist!
3. Were you expecting politics? Then you probably ought to read some other blog. It’s not that I don’t care about politics, it’s that I feel extremely out of my depth on the subject. And frankly, just reading all the shrieking (from both sides) on my Facebook feed makes me tired.
4. I’m thinking about getting a pixie hair cut. Somebody talk me out of it! My hair is very fine and frizzy, and I worry that if I get a pixie, I’ll look good for approximately 0.5 seconds, at which point my hair will react to all the humidity out here and make me look something like this:
5. Someday, I will get the perfect balance between tomatoes and peppers in my garden. Last year, it seemed that every time I wanted to make salsa, I had an overabundance of tomatoes and hardly any peppers. This year, it’s been the opposite: I am richly blessed with peppers and my tomato plants are struggling to keep up. I think the way to go is to skip the beefsteak tomatoes – they’re not as prolific as the medium size tomatoes and they take for-sodding-EVER to ripen.
6. I hope to get one more batch of salsa made before the first frost (usually mid-October where I live). After that, it’s time to pull up the maters and plant another key ingredient in salsa: Garlic! If you think you have a black thumb, try growing garlic. I plant the cloves in mid to late October and basically ignore them all winter, then water them with everything else once I get my spring plants in, then dig them up in mid to late June.
