One of the cardinal rules of blogging, if you want to keep a sustained readership, is to post with regularity. So here we are, one week since my last check-in. Hi, howya doin?
I was Wrong when I said Spring had Really arrived last week. Just last night we had Another Frost… It’s okay, though, because this really is it. Tonight the lows are in the mid-40’s and then the lows rise into the 50s — highs up to 80!
All this garden talk goes over on my gardening blog, and I hope you’re not too bored with pictures of plants and beds of dirt. It is an obsession this time of year, I admit.
Olivia and Samantha came over Saturday to play with us while their M&D saw the new Avengers movie. We played croquet (the only game I rule) and walked in the woods, picking wildflowers and making wishes before we blew the dandelion puffs away. I didn’t take any pictures, dang it. Here’s one from our visit to B&N the other day…
This morning we visited the Antique and Collectible Show at the 4H, soaking up the sun, murmuring at the high prices. I did get some $1 containers, the light styrofoam-like things, nothing antique. We came away with some ideas, too.
The next few weeks are busy, especially The First Saturday in May — KY Derby Day #144. Olivia has a piano concert at 2pm that day, and if the weather stays nice Casey and I will head over to Ellis to watch the Run for the Roses. Don’t forget it’s also Cinco de Mayo… decisions, decisions… Margaritas? Mint Juleps? …or both…
Olivia turns 10 on the 9th and has a birthday party on the 12th, Mothers Day is the 13th. In between, we’ll get the gardens planted, finally.
I’ve been studying the horses for the Derby, and I’ll let you know my conclusions in time to make a bet.
