Knitting, Uploading, Stacking, Etc.

I must say that I had a really good day today and decided to stay home and work on a couple things. So I broke out the second clog and knitted away at that while sitting in front of the computer, loading CDs into iTunes for use on my iPod! Here is a shot of it in it's cool iFrogz skin, which I would highly recommend.

I must say that I held off on getting an iPod for a long time, but now that I finally got one, I love it. I use it on the way to and from, and even at work. So today I got all my Shonen Knife, Magnetic Fields, and a good portion of my Fall CDs done. And in doing all that I got the clog done...yaaaayyy! Here's a pic of one knitted/felted and the one I just knitted.
After that, I had lunch and relaxed a little before heading out to work on the woodpile. Last Tuesday we had three and a half cords of wood delivered for the upcoming winter season. So now we have to find a place for it all! We have an area that the previous owners set up just for that purpose. It has a roof that is built off of the back of the garage and holds a decent amount of wood.

Then I started a stack between two trees in the backyard. The work went pretty quickly and we ended up with a pile as tall as me.

But as you can see from the pic below, we still have a lot of wood left! Not that that's a bad thing! Even with all that wood, I'm sure we'll need to order some more before the winter's over.

Here are a few shots of some of the goodies that we grew ourselves. Along with the peppers...


and sungold tomatoes...


we also grew a lettuce mix, kale, jalapenos, squash and cucumbers.
I want to take a minute to say "Hi!" to Ruth-Anne. I've gotten a few emails from her letting me know that she has made it safely to Colorado and even has a few interviews set up already...woohoo! Good luck Roofy, I miss you!

LISTENING TO: SHONEN KNIFE - "Happy Hour"
If you've never heard of Shonen Knife, they are made up of three Japanese women who play Ramones-ey punk/rock with a twist. Their songs are full of references to Japanese culture and are usually pretty silly in nature. This, their 8th album, is full of fun songs. This time many of them are about food such as "Banana Chips," "Sushi Bar," and "Hot Chocolate." And they end it all with a cool version of "Daydream Believer!"

That is an incredible amount of wood! AMAZING. Is that your only source of heat, or do you have a backup system? I just went back to look at the pics again. That's STILL a lot of wood
Nice batch of produce, too.

Wow, you're a busy boy! I was a total bum this weekend. I didn't realize that until just now, though...

That's one hell of a lot of wood! The vegetables look great, I love home grown produce, somehow it just tastes better.

Geez I love those clogs. Did you attach a sole, too? I have that pattern, but it looks complicated. I'm just a chicken--I worry that I'll mess it up.

69 Love Songs arrived in the mail yesterday. LD from Flare has been after me to sit in on a session for years. Saw Sugarcubes in a tiny concert hall in Bremen during the summer of 89. Seems like we have similar tastes in music.
