i have been *so* tired lately. i usually count my snooze alarms, but this morning, i went two past normal. i’ve been having really weird dreams and not sleeping so well. especially since it’s nice and cozy and dark when my first alarm goes off.
at least i have a three-day weekend to look forward to; i have an appointment on friday, so i took the day off. if relevant, i’ll tell you more later.
the dogs have stopped pooping in the living room, so that’s nice. i think they got a bug or something from either the new bird, or a dog that visited our labor day party. they’ve had their fair share of rice in the last couple weeks, and it seems to have helped.
the birds are doing well. i still don’t think it’s a good idea to put them all in one cage, but we’ll see.
matt took care of a lot of outside stuff yesterday, which was so nice. he cut up the part of stacy that fell (from the labor day saturday morning storm) and saved some branches for next year’s cucumber trellis; he also removed a non-lilac tree that was growing out of the lilac. it makes the front of the house look weird, but it didn’t belong.
my kombucha-brewing is going well… i need to process a batch tonight. both vessels have huge, multi-layered mothers in them, so it looks cool.
my lower back has been bothering me a lot this week. i can’t put a finger on it, but it might have something to do with why i’m so tired.
