Hello all — been busy getting things moving in the garden and putting out fires. Two-thirds of the potatoes are planted and some of the onions . . . .what was I thinking 32 pounds of onions? We LOVE onions at our house. And lettuce . . . . cute little things. So, one of the last snow storms (such that it was) managed to damage the east hoop house zipper wall . . . . going to have to figure out what to do about that before November! And something was in there nipping off the brocolli starts . . . had to instal bird netting. Today is blusterie and cold and very rainie so I guess it was good that I didn’t get the lettuce planted outside when I wanted to.
In the mean time, my oxygen concentrator managed to start making noise and a funny smell . . . $90 later it is in Indiana at Extreme Oxygen where it came from. Luckily they were able to fix it for not too much and it is on it’s way home. Thank goodness! I’m more than ready to sit and melt some glass.
I attended the Spring Craft Sale in Yates City — it was well attended and a couple people bought stuff from me — then off to Elmwood High School Prom Grand March! Sara managed to get left off the prom committee list and of course, by the time I got there there was no place to sit. For all of you who live in a small community — if your kids aren’t participating DO NOT OCCUPY A SEAT. I told Sara that next year I’m going at noon to camp out . . . we NEVER, in 13 years, have gotten good seats at anything . . . .(suffice it to say that I will be glad when she graduates.
Upcoming events — Annette and I will be in Milan at the MIP (Milan Improvement Project) Sunday, May 1. Please come by and visit us. I should hear by next week about Sugar Creek Art Fair in Bloomington, IL. I am excited about that.
So, today I am at the Moon Dancer at the Shoppes at Grand Prairie where the rain is keeping people from shopping. Everyone have a good day and stay dry.
