The garden is taking up a lot of time. However on the good side, I am nearly complete. About 2 days away till I have conditioned, added good topsoil, rototilled, and finally planted my vegetables. Then it is off to the edges of the house, where I will not go as deep as I had previously and I'll spread out the perennials and add some annuals to the houses exterior. Then after all is said and done, the outside of the house will be on its way to recovery. The last owner kind of let the exterior of the house (yard plants, grass) to either grow wild or not let grow enough. Either way, with an exterior looking good, the interior can be worked on without the problem of frustrated neighbors over an empty house.

At least that's the plan. Good neighbors are sometimes hard to keep. First impressions are very important.
I am an idea man, and I know that one day an idea will make my life and the life of others a little easier. So saying this, I had a great idea this weekend and the idea is so simple, so usable I think that I may have something to start with. This could be the starting block I have been waiting for. Not going to reveal to much, but it deals directly with my job.

The inside week of renovations has begun. I have been putting the inside stuff off because the weather was so nice and the gardens needed tending. Now since my father has painted 2 walls in my house, I can start to see where all my mudding and sanding is starting to lead. Today, is simple, sand and mud, and then sand. Tommorow, prime, and by weeks end, paint.

I have however another matter. My two weeks off from working out has come to a close, and I must go back. The cravings are too strong, and I must succome. That will be first on the agenda, and then the house.

School is over, the house is coming, the garden is still being prepared and the things of life are still grinding their way through my life. I passed my courses, but not with the marks I expected. My linear algebra class was going so well I am surprised with the mark I received. The good news is that I passed, and I am off to the next hurdle. I need to figure out what I am going to do.

The house. It is a project in its own. Each task seemly small in the beginning, unravels into something much more involved. I had a feeling like that was going to be the case. Only so many hours in the day. I seem to be able to fill everyone of them. Today, I am spending money. Money on tires, money on shoes, money on life. Things cost money, so easy we see only the steps in front of us, never expected to see the hurdles 100 meters down the track.

I am meeting my neighbors. Each time, getting to know them on good terms, and not with bad first impressions. It is nice to know the neighborhood with virgin …
