May 23, 2014

Well, I'm finally starting to feel better and am trying not to be overwhelmed by all there is to catch up on. Yesterday was a beautiful day so I took the camera outside and made a different kind of a Behind the Scenes, taking everyone on a tour of the garden. It was nice to get outside and to see everything starting to grow. We also had some work done on the house and hopefully (hopefully!) we'll be done with leaking when it rains. That would be so awesome.


Although last week was a mega-finale week, the there are few that trickled in this week as well including Supernatural (don't spoilers). But it was wild to see yet again the awesome The Road So Far montage, for the 9th season in a row. Wowza.


Every day has been insane lately but yesterday was really nuts. We finally got all the crap together the former owners of the house dumped us with and went out to an industrial recycling place and paid $11 to legally get rid of all the junk they left us with. I have never been to a place quite like it and it freaked me out a bit.

I totally can't wait now Shannon and I've had Wayward Son stuck in my head for days, LOL. Yup, soon there will be little to watch. Maybe we'll get lucky with some new summer shows.

It really is finale time. It's amazing the space that it opens up - though I'm sure there will be new shows starting too!

Wow, Suzie, wtg for doing the right thing and disposing of things that way. As someone who doesn't have a car, I've always been frustrated by the options available. It's great that you guys got that done. WTG!

I'm so glad you got to get out in and share the garden Jamie! And here is to hoping the fixings on the house keeps it's safe and dry from the rain :)

Whoa, what was the recycling place like that it freaked you out Suzie? I thought that being able to safety get rid of stuff would feel awesome (although of course it's not awesome others left it for you to deal with).

Oh Jamie, what a beautiful video. I could feel your connection to it so strongly and I'm sorry that it has been such a hard winter. I loved seeing all the plants and especially the ones that migrated to your home from Mom's. The photos at the end made me tear up!

It's crazy how hard they make it to be responsible with junk. We had to drive at least half an hour to get to the place. They wonder why they have problems with dumping here. And the lineup was quite long, not a fast process at all. I can't imagine what people without cars do!

Any industrial space like that freaks me out Shannon. It's all human-made, nothing natural and it feels destructive and sad, all this stuff no one wants. I am glad they have found ways to recycle it though but it always makes me uncomfortable.
