HydroponicLettuceI'm starting to run low on a couple of things. I only have lettuce enough for one salad. I have no tomatoes. My hydroponic lettuce is begging to sprout, but it will still be weeks before I'm able to harvest. If I do this experiment again, I'll have to start growing lettuce in November.

Other things I'm going to run out of reasonably soon: cream, milkbones, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, deodorant, and laundry detergent. (just kidding about those last five)

I'm going to try Jet.com for laundry detergent. Some of the stuff on Jet is way cheap. Other things are normal price. You have to shop around. I'm closing in on a cover for Madelyn's Nephew, which is good. I should have that out easily in a couple of weeks. I'm really enjoying the HIIT workouts on YouTube. Instead of doing the cardio in P90x, I've substituted the HIIT workouts on those days. They're much more difficult. Plus, it's good for a change.

Sales have slowed down in January. I'm hoping Madelyn brings them back. She ought to be able to--as far as I can tell, that woman is pretty tough. We had a little snow this morning even though Siri promised me last night that there was none coming. My Siri has a male voice. I might switch to the female to see if she's any better at predicting the weather. My horse (Rocky) is pretty damn bored. This is his first winter without a pasture-pal in ten years. He doesn't like it one bit.

We watched a pretty good Austrian horror movie last night called "Goodnight Mommy." I liked it a lot. 

Today, something was scratching at the laundry room door. Finn heard it too. There was nothing there and no tracks in the snow. Good times.

I've been thinking of places I might like to go in April--exotic locations, like Target and Home Depot. Can you imagine?
