Hi folks, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! What's on tap for the weekend? Our annual compost delivery arrives tomorrow afternoon, so I need to do some quality stretching today. I've got the whole weekend to finish spreading it, and I've gotten better at pacing myself, but it's still the most challenging workout of the year. Totally worth it though, because the garden always looks terrific when I'm done. (Note to self: Stock up on Advil today.) BDH and Little Buddha plan to alternate between cheering me on and listening to the chirping birds, so they're excited.... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back! How are you? BDH, Little Buddha, and I were just listening to the wind howl outside. It started last night, and apparently it's not going to stop until later this evening. I don't think it will have much of an impact on today's to-do list, though. One of my biggest tasks is to re-pot another plant. I did two more yesterday, and they're both decompressing in their new spaces. The guys said they'd be happy to keep an eye on all of them today and encourage them to be healthy and happy. That works, because really,... Read more →

Hi everyone, How are you? Week going okay so far? We're doing well at the moment, thank you. No luck at the bookstore yesterday. Nothing in the new releases section felt like a good match for BDH and Little Buddha. The guys are fine with that. They still have about 90 pages left in their current book, and they're happy to watch some Red Sox games and whatever else is on TV this week. Unfortunately, there aren't any new NBC "One Chicago" shows tonight, but we'll find something good. Now, let's get to work and take a peek at the... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just giving me today's weather forecast. It looks like we're going with cloudy this morning and then some rain this afternoon and evening. That's fine, it will be good for the garden. Speaking of which, I had the chance to play in the dirt for a while yesterday, which was great. Also ordered the compost, so I should start stretching now and make sure we're stocked up on Advil. Of course, I'm off to the bookstore after we're done here. The guys are having a little trouble finishing their current... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How was the rest of your weekend? The rain I saw in yesterday's forecast never appeared, so I had plenty of time in the garden, which was a treat. More still needs to be done before the compost delivery, but that's okay. There are a number of items on today's to-do list, and BDH and Little Buddha say the weather should cooperate with a high of 60 degrees. Sounds good to me. First, let's check out the headlines. The guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? Weekend going okay so far? We're all doing well at the moment. I ran the usual errands yesterday and then spent some time in the garden, which is always fun. Hoping to be back at it this afternoon, but there seems to be some rain in the forecast, so we'll see how that goes. There's plenty to do around the house if I can't play in the dirt, but there's also still a lot to do outside before the compost delivery. Anyway, no complaints on our end, and now you're here, so things just keep... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. What's on tap for the weekend? We've got the usual list of errands, but the primary goal is to have some extended garden time and get everything ready for the annual compost delivery. I should also probably start stretching now, because spreading the compost wrecks me every year. The broken back is worth it, though. So, yesterday never really got on track, for whatever reason. Some days you’ve got it all together, and some days… not so much. However, I'm feeling better this morning, so BDH and Little Buddha... Read more →

Hi folks, How are we doing? I woke up a little out of sorts this morning. Don't know why that should be the case. I slept fine, but things are just bit off right out of the gate. BDH and Little Buddha told me to take a deep breath, and they promised to help me try to focus on having a productive day. Still not feeling it at the moment, but with these two in my corner, I'm sure things will come together eventually. Plus, you're here, and that means it's time to get to work. The guys made coffee,... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back. How are you? I struck out at the bookstore yesterday, but that's okay. It will still take BDH and Little Buddha a little while longer to finish their current book. Plus, they can watch some Red Sox games (and tonight's "One Chicago" shows) until next week's new releases arrive. The guys just looked at the calendar, and they'd like to wish a happy 4/20 to everyone who celebrates it. That scene isn't really their cup of tea, but hey, cheers. They also want you to know that the coffee is ready. Grab yourself a nice medium... Read more →

Hi everyone, How are you? We're all doing well at the moment. I successfully re-potted another plant yesterday, and it seems to be adjusting well to its new space, which is great to see. I also had about three hours in the garden yesterday, which was fantastic. However, there's still plenty more cleanup to do before the annual compost delivery arrives in a few weeks. Didn't realize it was supposed to rain so hard this morning, but it's really coming down out there right now. That's fine, it's good for the plants, and BDH and Little Buddha say it will...
