Money's just something you throw off the back of the train.

We're not talking about money around here. About how we don't have any. Or ever will.
We're just living in the moment. For now.
And buying a lot of our groceries at the damaged freight grocery store.

A current shot of the tiny house in typical March/April weather.
Keith has table saws and saw horses set up in the front yard for cuttin' and buildin' and other tiny house construction activities.

We primed the shelves that Keith built and got a piece of old lumber to hold up the counter top so we could fantasize about how it's going to look some day with the sink in, etc.

We priced galvanized pipe (guess what: it's expensive) and thought about other materials we could use for counter supports/legs... and came back to galvanized pipe.

One design/house blog I read has a shelving unit made out of plumbing pipe and I like that, but I don't know if it's the right diameter, proportionally.

Of course, Home Resource, where we got the counter top for SIX DOLLARS, had some recycled galvanized pipe, but we Keith didn't think we'd need it. Yeah, that point has been made.

Mia's got a bum ear: an aural hematoma. The vet's going to fix her up next Friday but she has to deal with a water balloon on the side of her head until then. (The ear on the right in this photo.) Poor girl!My running plan with Lazlo is going so-so. I'm repeating week 3 because I don't feel confident I can do week 4's plan yet. Honestly, he's holding me back. Running up a slight incline while pulling a 95-pound pit bull is HARD! Yesterday I took both dogs, which was also hard. Keith says to leave the dogs behind, but I like taking them (or one of them at least) with me. And Lazlo acts excited to go---at first. I do think his leg is still bothering him, where he got bit. I'd be slow to run, too, if someone bit a chuck out of my flank. So I'm cutting him some slack.

I did book the two weddings I quoted, which is really exciting! They're both local and should be pretty straightforward.

(This shot is from a roll I recently had developed, didn't realize it was from the wedding I did last September! Oops.)

I really like that first picture, with the clouds in the background.

Poor Mia! I hope the fix up isn't expensive.
