Day 20 – Sit!

I decided to teach my puppy how to sit.  Didn’t go so well.  She jumps when I want her to sit, and sits when I want her to stand.  I think this is gonna take a while!

Day 11 – What is This?

I’ve had computer issues, so I’m trying to get caught up.   Anyways, I was waling on our property and came across this plant.  It’s some type of cactus, but I have no clue.

Day 10 – Gravel!

I sifted through the rocks in our wash and started laying out a gravel bedding around my rose bush. When I’m done, I will be laying larger rocks on top.  Hopefully this will keep other vegetation from growing. I thought

Day 1 – Water

I didn’t even realize it was the 1st of February; but I decided that today would be the day I start drinking more water.  I’ve been drinking way too many sodas.
