Apple Bagging

Worked on the logo yesterday. I think it's ready now. I still need to tweak the instructions and create a container to place it all in. Maybe a box - maybe a tube - not sure.

I have all the supplies now and I'm ready to assemble and make the first prototype. Stay tuned!

Five to Fifty Five

Well - My birthday is coming up soon - next week. People say - what would you tell your child self about the future. 

- Nothing - she wouldn't listen anyways.

Remember when you were a child? Old was old and you wanted no part of it.

So - even after all these years, I still have uneven bangs.

Five years old

Work Trip

First Level - second door from the left
I worked a conference last week in Sarasota - Lido Key. The hotel's views were spectacular. You open the door and the gulf was right in front of you.

Bobby came with me and visited with folks he knew that moved down here from Illinois. Go figure - it's a small world.

I have more pictures still to post. It was a great getaway for February. Even if I worked - one of the perks of my job.

While we were away, the temps in Chicago were in the high teens and Sarasota had 70's.

Stay tuned

Growing Spinach Indoor

Baby Spinach
I love baby spinach. I love the way the leaves look. I love the fresh taste. And the health factor. It's so good for you and it grows to eating size pretty quick.

Take some potting soil and some spinach seeds. Any container you have is fine as long as it drains. Place dirt in container - sprinkle the spinach seeds - cover the seeds lightly with soil - water - place in a sunny spot.You can cover the container with plastic wrap or a clear cover to keep moist.

In about 7-10 days, you'll see little sprouts. Then the little round leaves will appear a week after. You can start picking the leaves off after that.

Nutrients in the winter - Perfect!
