Maybe it's the weather. Rainy & gray. Sunshine always seems to make me feel better. It is supposed to come out tomorrow. We had dinner with our son & his girlfriend last night. It is alway fun to get together with them.
I've been tending the seedlings and before long it will be time to plant. The potatoes arrived yesterday. I have five pounds of Yukon gold, 5 pounds of Yellow Finn and 2 1/2 pounds of Rose Finn fingerlings. They will sit out in a warm spot for a couple weeks and them I will cut them up and let them harden over for planting. We have just finished eating the potaoes from last year so that was a success (besides or in spite of the Colorado potato beetles :-) We'll pick up the hazelnuts & chestnuts on the way up tomorrow and heel them in. We'll plant when we get swales dug.
Next week I start a new therapy. It's called Interactive Metronome Therapy. One of the uses is for adult neuro rehabilitation patients. Two times a week for six weeks. Let's hope this helps the whole left brain/right brain thing.
You may be wondering what has taken place since the funeral of the wife of one of our employees. Let's see...new Ipods, talk of a new car, season tickets to the White Sox. Oh and "now I don't have to hide phone numbers anymore." Just how I thought he would be. The first thing he told Steve when he got back to work was how much he is getting from Social Security for the girls. Not how much he misses his wife. He's not smart enough to lie I guess, for sympathy.
I think I need some happy news. Too many CAFO thoughts lately.
Maybe tell me some jokes?
