Today we cleaned up the garage a bit, just enough to get Mom's VW bug in but not our own car. It was community junk collection day and we did our part by dropping off a few boxes. I also purchased the lumber to finish off the compost bin. It was just warm enough to stain the wood. We have almost a whole cubic yard of "black gold" with another in progress. I'm not sure where we're going to put all the leaves that are beginning to turn. Guess I'll have to spread some compost first to empty out one of the bins. Unfortunately about halfway through the day Amy started feeling queasy. Apparently she's got a bit of stomach flu. So that meant the rest of the afternoon was spent feeding, playing and bathing the kids while she rests. Hopefully none of the rest of us get it.
