Parrot update: The owner has given up trying to catch his macaw. The bird has since taken off to parts unknown. I am very mad at the guy...very mad. I've heard hand-raised parrots don't do too well on their own in the wild. Sad situation.
My garden update: I've planted a couple tomatoes, some squash, green onions, spearmint and collard greens. Tomorrow I'll plant my watermelon and cantelope seeds. Wish me luck!
My "craftiness" update: There is none. I have given up crocheting. I DID make 4 bars of soap which came out ok, so I think I'll get some nice oils and make a bunch for Christmas presents this year. The melt and pour method is so damn easy, it's silly! But I like being able to add what I want to the soaps.
My car update: Still making 4 different sounds, although I did change the oil last weekend and my hub got the front brake pads replaced. Runs ok, just sounds like crap. Oh, and two of the tires have plugs in them.
Potty Training update: Well. He is trying more now. Still no poop on the potty, but he will pee on it. My goal is to have him out of diapers (at least during the day) by the time my hub gets back from Italy.
Reading update: I am really loving Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas series right now. Since joining book mooch, I have a pretty tall stack of books on my nightstand waiting to be read! This week I've been reading "The Man Who Invented Florida" by Rany Wayne White. I love his Doc Ford books. Hell, I love just about anything that is set in the swamps of Florida!
Dancing With The Stars update: Bye, bye Priscilla. Now go find a decent polastic surgeon who can work some magic on you so you don't look like "The Joker" anymore.
American Idol update: David Cook rocks! Jason Castro is his biggest competition, I think. David Archuletta is good, for sure, but too boy band-ish.
I may head out to the Picayune State Forest this weekend to check on one of my geocaches and hopefully get a few good pictures to share.
