Last night we voted in our small Illinois town. They said turn out was very low. I guess there will be a lot of people who have no right to complain if things aren't done their way :-).
Tonight is the wake for the wife of our employee. It should be very sad (and very interesting). We'll see how her family acts toward him. I really hope they know what a jerk he is. See this story.
Yesterday, the strawberries came. I have been reading other people's blogs about how they got them early & now so have I. We usually don't plant until after Mother's Day and last year it was even later. So I called the company & she said that if they don't survive in the fridge, they will replace them. The instructions say they will be good for 3 weeks in the fridge. So I'll just have to wait & see what happens. One kind is on backorder, so that is actually good news.
All the seedlings are doing well and most are transplanted into bigger pots now. My dining room is getting very crowded, but that is the best place for them due to the big windows and southern exposure.
No news today on the CAFO. I am going to go to a site called Homesteading Today and post a link to the blog & to the petition site. There are 568 signatures now. Great job everyone who has signed it & passed on the info to others. They would like to see 2000 signatures so I will keep trying.
We are going up Friday morning to the farm. I think Mia (the cat) is going with this time. We'll get an extra day there which will be nice since we came home early last weekend.
I'm sorry I haven't been posting much on everyone's blogs. With the worries about the CAFO and a descriptive writing class I am taking for cognitive therapy, I have been busy. Hope to get back in the swing of things soon.
