Beware the Ides of March! (Just Kidding)

Quick update for the week. Nothing major has happened, but some upcoming happenings:

M's still unemployed, but he's got 2 or 3 jobs lined up to look into and apply for. Woo!

Four more mouse casualties, but I wasn't thrilled about them. M cut into a nest of at least one adult and three pups with the tiller the other day when he was tilling up a new area for the garden. So four more potential house invaders down, but this time, they were out where they belonged...

We're (I, and M's going to be a captive) starting a new "diet" tomorrow. It's based on the book The Fertility Diet, and we're going to see how it goes. It's designed for eating the correct (basically, natural) foods and in the correct proportions and for getting all necessary nutrients from the right sources. It's not meant to be a weight-loss plan, though of course weight loss is suggested for those of us who are above our suggested weights. M thinks I'll be hungry all the time on it, but it suggests a starting point for you to adjust based on your size and activity level. We'll try the recommended plan this week and tweak as necessary. It looks to me like everything will be good and tasty, and the point of the foods from this diet are to be naturally healthy and filling.

Also starting tomorrow is the installation of our geothermal heat pump. (We are incredibly excited!)

So here's to new beginnings.

* Stringham high: We have seeds in hand and our garden planned!
* Stringham low: It's almost spring. We don't have any real lows, except some short-term money grumbles.
* Stringham super-high: Woo, heat pump!
