I'm Obsessed with the Haleigh Cummings Case - My Apologies

21 September 2009
Sorry about that.  I'll try to keep all that kind of stuff on my other website, Kids in Peril.  It's just that sometimes a case consumes me and I want to talk about it constantly.

A minor miracle happened on my columnar apple tree.  It was blooming a bit ago, which made me sad, because the others weren't meaning no cross-pollination and thus no apples.  Well the blooms have fallen off and apples are developing!  Must have been an apple tree somewhere near that was blooming.  Thanks little bee for traveling a bit for me. 

I have a tiny backyard, so I have tiny trees in it, among other plants.  A dwarf apple, two collumnar apples (plus two in the front yard), raspberries, blueberries, grapes, artichokes, tomatoes, peppers, cranberries a pomegrantate tree.  At this time last year it had 4 fifty foot pines in it and sappy pine needles everywhere, even the dog didn't like to hang out back there.  Sometimes I would rake up the pine needles, then it looked like a campground.  I don't like camping.  I'm so proud of what we've done.  There's fruit and grass.  The kids actually play back there. 

I saw the IMAX version of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs yesterday in 3-d.  It was really expensive but completely worth it.  I only took the two big kids while baby and daddy stayed home at watched the football game.  I also got to see the previews for Where the Wild Things Are, I can't wait to see it!

I was flipping through the Showtime on Demand menu when I came across Dexter the other night.  I haven't see it, so I watched episode 1, season one.  OMG!!!  Why did no one tell me how very awesome Dexter is?  I immediately watched episode 2, but it was past 2 am when that was done so I had to go to sleep after that.  I'm going to watch them all!!!  I love that sociopath.
