Our starts have are looking great! You really get the itch for spring when they get going.

Oh…and take a look at our newest project. Hydroponics! So far we want to do peppers, lettuce, tomatoes and watermelon with this method inside.

Kangaroo Farm

Leave a comment Standard

Friday Zoe and I had the great surprise of being invited to tag along with our friends Monica and Xavier to the Kangaroo Farm in Arlington. We had a blast. They have all kinds of animals and the kids were able to feed and pet almost all of them.

One of the kangaroos was named Zoe. She was Zoe’s favorite. I’m not sure if it was because they shared the same name or because she was a bit smaller than this guy.

Zoe (the kangaroo) had a little joey in her pouch. Zoe (the child) was a little confused when I explained the reason Zoe (the kangaroo) kept putting her head in her pouch was because she was licking the baby that was in there. I think she may have been wondering if I ever did that.

Monica found a new friend. This little guy (a Capybara…worlds largest rodent) came running up from nowhere, passed everyone else and headed straight for Monica.

Lets not forget the llama kissing. (I was trying not to laugh while holding a pellet in my mouth…not an easy thing to do with a llama headed for you)

Zoe was able to hold a little joey. He had just turned 6 months old. As soon as she got him she starting rocking back and forth. The joey fell out of his mama’s pouch and wasn’t able to climb back in so she left him on the ground. Luckily, they found him in time and have been raising him inside.

And we’re back

It probably hasn’t seemed unusual that we haven’t posted in a while since I am not the best consistent blogger out there but, this time we had a reason. Our computer decided (just on a whim) to stop. It just froze up, turned off and had the slight smell of burning electronics. So we had the lovely time of being without a computer for a little while. (and anyone who knows Greg understands how even a short time without a computer can be a very long time) He was lucky to have a computer at work he could check. I, on the other hand, did not. All the best stuff was posted on Craigslist while I was out of commission :O). But we are back now and all is good. I am fortunate to have married a man that does the whole computer thing and just builds us one instead of having to actually buy one off the shelf. It saves a lot of money.

This also happened at the same time my car, Ginger, (yes we name our cars) needed to have some work done. And of course once you take them in for what you know is wrong they will inevitably call you with more things. We paid them to take care of some of the bigger issues and Greg took care of the other things himself. (he just gets more and more handy)

Well, that’s about it for now. There are no pictures today. We have misplaced the cord to get the pictures off the camera. Our laptop had its own little spot for the card. Now that I know its missing we’ll find it soon.
