So Much Happy News

1. Casey moved out of our home office and into his own office in downtown Brenham. I am super excited for 2 reasons. a) He will have a much more pleasant, toddler-free, castle-free work environment. I know he loved being near us, but it's hard to get work done when home and work are happening in the same room. b) With office out of the house, that room is now freed up for crafting and laundry sorting and garden preparation (more on that momentarily) and yes...the castle will have a permanent happy home. I am SO excited to have a place to sew and to craft with Braelyn and to store things in logical places. I'll post pictures of Casey's new office and my new work room soon. They are not presentable at this time. ;)

2. We started a fall garden! I saw the book Square Foot Gardening and after a quick perusal it seemed quite manageable and just the step-by-step instruction I needed to get a garden started. I will say this...if I am able to grow a single vegetable, I will consider it a success. For this first season, I just want to figure out exactly what I don't know, so that for the spring I can go to my garden guru friends and ask more specific questions, instead of, "Uh... Mandi, how do I garden?" Anyways, here's some pics...our first day as gardeners.

See. Just a little 4x4.
3. Guys...Look at this surprise that was waiting for me when I got home!Today my sweet, amazing, wonderfully dashing husband got me my first computer! I've always used a family computer, but today Casey surprised me with my very own MacBook Pro. With the office move, and Casey taking the big PC to his new office, we had been talking about getting me a new laptop so I wouldn't be computer-less, but I never thought it would be so soon. What a happy day! So...it it my privilege to bring this blog to you today from my very own beautiful, shiny MacBook Pro, which by the way I don't know how to use very well. Something was bouncing at me while I was writing this. Not too sure what to do with the bouncy things. But who cares?! I have a computer!!!!! Woo Hoo!

Welcome to the wonderful world of Macs!

Casey said...

the garden looks fun, and I would also consider it a success if I could grow one veggie, too. And yea for new computers! The bouncy thing was probably a computer update, or something... If you click on it, or minimize what you are doing, a window should be there, and you can say, not now, or update, etc. have fun!

ooh, now you need to craft something like this, in your new craft room, for your new computer!

Hi !.
You re, I guess , probably very interested to know how one can reach 2000 per day of income .
There is no need to invest much at first. You may begin to get income with as small sum of money as 20-100 dollars.

AimTrust is what you thought of all the time

Its head office is in Panama with structures everywhere: In USA, Canada, Cyprus.
Do you want to become really rich in short time?
That`s your chance That`s what you wish in the long run!

I feel good, I began to take up income with the help of this company,
and I invite you to do the same. If it gets down to select a proper companion who uses your money in a right way - that`s AimTrust!.
I make 2G daily, and what I started with was a funny sum of 500 bucks!
