I do think there are going to be some good things about having the smart phones, but honestly for being on the internet--mostly byc and craigslist, for me, I'll probably always prefer the desktop.
Honey's new job is pretty text-intense, that's how they all communicate. His old phone was not only a dumb phone, but he was still pressing the button twice for the letter B, three times for C....texting was quite the labor for him! So hopefully the new phone will smooth his job.
I was at the fabric store yesterday and found two different horse prints for Echo's pillow. I realized if I knew how to use my phone, I could send him a pic of them and let him chose which one he wanted. I don't know how to do that yet, so I just bought both . I figured, hey, it's a horse print, I'll just use the one he doesn't want. Then of course the horse prints were right next to the chicken prints--wound up spending over $40 on fabric . I'm so not allowed to go in there again!
It's a beautiful, cold day here. I asked Honey if he can build me a shelf out of some old fence boards, we'll take a look and see if they're still usable. He started using the old manure pile to fill in our pond, I'm always amazed how just letting horse poop set in a pile for a year or so works magic and turns it into beautiful compost. I'd love to put this on the garden, but it's full of fist sized river rocks and I don't especially want those in my garden. It's a shame, though, cause the rest of it is lovely! Oh well, we'll start a new pile. We put several loads of decomposed granite down last year, so no more river rock. it will make a wonderful garden amendment next year. I may go out and screen a few trash bags worth to use in pots, though. That should be doable to get the rocks out of a smaller amount like that.
