with geobins and crocuses and gardensoxx all in a row.

today i set up our geobin compost system.  it does not look like this:
geobin
i suppose it could, with some serious wrangling, but for now it’s more of a lopsided oval shape.  and you know what, it works just fine that way because it gets the job done.  plus, it holds compost better than a cardboard box.

before the builder laid down the sod for our front lawn, nugget daddy spread out 450 crocus bulbs.  they’re a naturalizing variety, so they should become more dense over the years.  it sort of looks like we’ve stuck a bunch of artificial flowers in our lawn.  still, they’re fun to see poking up, and a nice way to welcome spring.
spring is here!

nugget loves flowers!

i also started my first tray of seedlings today.  it includes:

big rainbow tomatoes

mix consists of equal parts omars lebanese (red), dutchman(pink), golden sunburst (yellow), black russian (purple), aunt ruby’s german green (green) and djena lee’s golden girl (orange)

yikes! i almost completely forgot to write about the gardensoxx! (i actually had to drag myself out of bed and go back to my desk after catching my mistake on my crackberry.) anyhow, once the seedlings are ready for transplant, they’ll pop right into these cute little tubes of landscape fabric that come prefilled with organic growing medium. we have really heavy clay soil here and tilling a temporary garden is such a pain. i hope these work out well. they look so promising!

here’s a look at a really cool stream bank restoration project using filtrexx products. it shows the gardensoxx being made on-site.

bleomycin toxicity appears to be the real culprit behind the fever.  the pneumonia they thought i might have had is actually pneumonitis.  it’s basically the same thing, pneumonia being caused by infection while pneumonitis is not.

 

the treatment is steroids, solumedrol in my case.  i’m getting it in my iv for now and will switch to pills once i go home.

  

 

 

                                                                            

i’m still on antibiotics, levaquin, as a precaution, though all of my blood cultures have been coming back negative.
 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

right now i have to use extra oxygen to get up out of bed.  hopefully, i’ll be breathing easier once the steroids are in full effect.

 

 

 

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

i’m terribly sad to be missing trick-or-treating with the nugget.  nugget daddy will bring her here to get ready and maybe we’ll do a few laps around the nurses’ station before they head off to the halloween event at the mall.  it’s going to be a little too cold for nugget to go door-to-door in her tinker bell costume, so the mall it is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

we’re hoping i’ll be well enough to leave the hospital this weekend.  nugget’s grandmamie has been here taking care of her, and nugget daddy and i couldn’t be anymore grateful for all of her help.  i’ll still need a lot of help once i’m back home, but i’m sure we’ll manage to work something out.

 

we’re anxious to see the progress on the new house.  all the flooring is in, as are the cabinets, sinks, tubs, and granite counters.  toilets and faucets should be in soon, if not already and appliance installation has started. 

we’ve ordered all of the appliances that we chose not to buy from the builder and have almost all  of the lighting fixtures now, too.  we definitely weren’t spending our money with the builder on those selections.

  

 
 

we have crocus bulbs to throw down under the sod as it goes down.  i’m hoping to be well enough to do it myself.  they’ll make a spectaular addition to our lawn in winter as the first early sign of spring.
