Free Date Idea: Go Out and Count Shooting Stars


Posted on : 10:01 AM | By : Anonymous | In : ,

We went outside at about midnight last night (partly because our sleeping schedule is pretty far out of wack and we wake up at about 10:30 am) and watched the stars and talked.  It's far enough away from town that you can see one of the arms of the Milky Way, and you are pretty much guaranteed to see a few shooting stars, so we had a little contest to see who could see the most.

We realized when we were talking that our ultimate goal on our little homestead, besides supporting our family with our farm products, is to get to the point where we don't produce any waste at all.  Everything needs to get recycled back to the earth or reused until it can be.  We're thinking that a small herd of sheep will help us with that process, and would use our back pasture very nicely.

The highlight of our 'date' was when we saw my cousin and her husband through the basement window playing video games.  We sat there watching them for a minute and it was so dark they couldn't see us.  So then John hit the window with his hand and made them scream.  Hopefully they won't find an opportunity to get revenge, lol.
