The New Look

I have been contemplating changing themes lately, mainly because the LonelyTree theme does not want to properly nest comments. That is really my only gripe with the theme, and other than that, I think that the folks at Gauson Designs have done a great job. The Hybrid theme, which i am using now, is one that I have had my eye on for a while. I like the clean, minimalist look, and the flexibility of the theme. I will be experimenting with it over the next few weeks, so don’t be surprised if you see things disappearing and popping up elsewhere on the site. One thing that I’ve just noticed is that the Flickr Gallery(great plugin, by the way) page is not loading properly now. I don’t know if that is due to the new theme or not and will look into that over the next few days.

I have been very busy with daily life as of late and have not had much time to devote to this blog. What with work and Spring(Planting time!) I am lucky if I get everything done in a day, even with cutting sleep to about 6 hours on most nights. Se la vie. I am having a wonderful time with it all, so I do not mind:”Give a man a task and he will be content.” as the saying goes.

Last week I finally got to irrigate on my day off, and during the daylight hours too! Bodie and I made a lot of progress on the ditches in the yard, and soon I will be able to focus more on actual gardening now that the water is getting to where it needs to go and NOT getting to where it shouldn’t be. All of the trees are now gettings properly flooded. The evergreens are particularly thankful for this as they have been battling the bark beetle and the extra water will allow them to produce more sap to push the buggers out. The wheat and alfalfa growing wild in the yard have crested two feet now and do not look to be planning to slow down any time soon.

Well, I’d best get back to that daily life business I referred to as I’ve a bit more floor shining to do before work. Signing off for now…

    Quite timely, this post. I had been wondering if you’d fallen off the map. Been looking for something new from you for quite awhile.

    Glad to know you’re still alive and well, and growing things…:)
