this past weekend was nice. i cashed out my stocks before the market took a digger, and got the checks on friday. i promptly spent too much on clothes from kohl’s, old navy, and ragstock… i also dug out from under a pile of bills, which decreases my stress level quite a bit.
the kombucha is coming along nicely. i have two batches going opposite each other, so it’s basically a constant supply. my scoby hotel has three mothers ready for use, if needed. i think i’ll now start letting them get thicker instead of retiring the mother to the hotel. upon matt’s suggestion, we flavored one bottle with a slice of cucumber (from the monster in the garden); it is really tasty and refreshing! i think i want to try making a savory one for salad dressing… with garlic and onion and maybe a pepperoncini.
we also got a new bird cage for free. the guy at mounds forgot to ring it up and i didn’t look at the receipt til i got home. i felt bad but was convinced by others that it was unnecessary.
moving the birds from one cage to the other was going great until polo jumped out while marco was on his way in. she squawked around the bathroom while matt tried to catch her and she ended up digging her beak into his finger. we finally got her calm and into the cage. they’re slowly getting used to it.
