::getting to know you:: waking up

did you know that i can sleep forever?
i think quite literally.
i can go to sleep at 5 pm and still sleep through the night.
AND i can't wake up.
in college, i was the one hitting the sleep button repeatedly.
(but so were my roommates, be honest!)
__________
since i got married, i haven't had to set an alarm clock but on
rare occasions.
because i have one sleeping right next to me.
::he:: just wakes up. naturally.
and usually in a good mood and earlier than he needs to.
thanks for waking me up tomorrow, love.

A while ago, I sent an email asking people for the five books that have had the most influence in their life. The list has been steadily growing and I need your help. Leave a comment with your own top 5. We will post the entire list soon.

::home:: putting up corn

we just happen to work in a town where they have a corn festival -which means we have really good sweet corn. and all the women at work have been talking about "puttin up corn". news to me. but last night, with mom's help, i put up about 27 ears of corn. here's the play by play via photo:
supposedly this means
that throughout the winter
we'll have fresh sweet corn
to eat with our pot roast and potatoes for sundy dinner
(that's what they kept telling me)
ps - mom made my so-cute apron!

::we've never lived anywhere long enough to spring clean::

i've only had to do "moving" cleans.
so i was a little late on it this year.
we did spring cleaning yesterday.
and we will never, ever do that again.
ten straight hours of cleaning.
now it's really clean.
but ::he:: said it wasn't worth it.

i think i agree.
