Back to Normal?

Ok, I’m definitely back to daily blogging as of now.  Yes indeedy.  The Big Project that’s been consuming all my time and energy went live this weekend, and there’s still some debugging to do and additions to make, but the bulk of the pressure is gone.  I learned some things about myself and programming in the process, which I’ll talk about some other time.

New Latin Lesson #13: the vocative case and imperative mood—the two things you need to know to give commands.  Next lesson will start on the third declension, which is harder than the first two, but it’s also the one with the most useful words.  I keep wanting to put excerpts from prayers and scripture in my lessons, and I can’t because they always have a few third declension words in them.  You can read a lot of stuff without knowing the fourth and fifth declensions, but without the third it’s tough.

I got the other garden bed ready the other day, adding a few inches of compost and a bit of topsoil on top to make it easier to plant in.  I planted a row each of radishes and turnips in it, but it looks like birds made off with some of them.  If they don’t start showing up soon, I’ll have to replant and put chicken wire over it this time.

In the other bed (which had chicken wire from the start) radishes starting poking through a couple days ago, but I haven’t seen anything else yet.  This rain today should give things a boost, but now we need a warm, sunny day to work with the moisture.  Lows in the 30s like tonight’s forecast won’t speed things up much.
