Pot Holes

Winter is hard on the roads, especially for areas that get snow and ice that requires treatment with salt and sand. And let's not mention the snow plows scrapping the snow and ice off the roads.

So now that Winter has appeared in my neck of the woods with a vengeance, there are POT HOLES every where.  So much fun to dodge car-eating holes in the road!  There is one that I manage to hit EVERY day on the way to work.

So I am all for the state, county and township representatives coming around and filling them.  BUT, I think they should check the weather forecast before they go around and fix them.  

This week, the state was around fixing my morning pot hole but my problem is that there was more snow predicted for Thursday following morning.  Enough snow that the plows would be out again.  So really, was there a reason for filling the pot holes just to have them reopened the next day??

So while I was sitting in traffic watching them fill the pot holes, I was also fuming about my tax dollars at work.  And wondering if I would get stuck behind them again next week.

Did I mention I hit my favorite pot hole again this morning?

Spring is coming.

See?  The Dog loves his Balls.

Garden Planning

Spring is coming, right?  I have to be thankful that we haven't been pummeled by the storms like New England.  Sorry, my New England friends - Chin Up - spring is coming.

Local stores are putting out their spring and summer supplies and it makes me want to get my garden started.  Or at least planned.

Last years stuff

Pallet gardening last year

So I have been making plans for what I want to plant this year.  I also have added to my Pots and am planning to plant some asparagus  in one of the new pots.  It will be some time before I get any crop from it but will be worth it in the long run.  And since they will be in the pot, if I move it will be easy to take them with me.

So, I'm drooling over seeds for beans, peas, lettuce, spinach, tomatoes and peppers.  YUM!  OH!  Butternut Squash!  Maybe I'll do something different and start some onions in a pot as well.

I can't wait for spring and summer to come so I can have yummy veggies.

Dreams, Plan and Goals

For a long time I've lived without any dreams for the future.  Ok, the standard I will work and pay into a retirement account and eventually retire to some place warm and cheap.  But no specific dreams to work toward.

I think its time I start dreaming so that I have a goal to work toward.  Something to look forward to in the future. Its always going to be a work in progress cause a better idea or desire may strike.

I imagine you should have short term and long term plans and goals.  Right now, I'm working on the long term dreams.  Once they are some what established, I can work out the short term goals in order to get to the big dream at the end of the rainbow.

I want to travel and see the country and maybe even the world.  There is so much to explore and see. So much that I haven't seen cause I've lived in one place all my life.

After experiencing RV life with my parents, I think that would be a really neat way to travel around.  It would be like taking my apartment with me.  I don't know if I want to choose between an RV or a trailer.  With the RV, you park it, hook up and your there.  Unless you trail a vehicle behind the RV.  But I do have a vision of me riding around towns on a little pink and purple scooter that rides the back of the RV.

Cute, Right?
This is not me...YET
Of course, then there would be the trailer option.  Yes, you park and hook up but you also detach the truck and have the freedom to explore outside the camp grounds. But it might not be as cute as me on the scooter.
Its feels good to have a dream.  Something to work toward.
