A day in the life...

My peeps...

I think they like their new digs, lots of space to stretch
their pseudo wings...still little, but oh so curious...

OK, me and my Mom are collaborating on new ideas
for the shop...she crochets and I brainstorm...

... when I started making the travel soaps,
I started getting feedback from everyone saying
they loved them because they hated hotel soap...

...then I was having Mom make these lil' 6 x 6 wash cloths
that fit perfectly into the same lil' deli containers
that the soaps are in...voila'...
TRAVEL KITS...!
Thanks Ma, you're the bomb!!!

This is how I spend my spare time...expanding
my existing garden...the heirloom snow peas will be
planted on this snow fence and for the first time EVER,
I am going to save seed...with the forecast food shortages,
I figure it might be a good idea...
have you priced seed lately...!
I also do everything by hand, no tiller, 'cept
the ol'timey one with the metal wheel...
I love that thing, I'm lucky because my soil is
sandy loam, easy to till and weed.
This year I'm determined to have a great garden
in spite of the weather...!

Speaking of...
this is what the back edge of a thunderstorm looks like,
as it barely misses you...
I could see the lightning and hear the thunder...
but no banana...yayyyy!
Back to the garden...

Your thunderstorms headed toward us.
Fierce, fierce winds. Hail. Warnings for tornados. We rarely get them this far north. The tv is reporting winds up to 90mph in one county to the north. Bad hair day? Yup!
BUT we have kept our power so far.

All snow gone except the biggest highest bank we had.
Snow predicted for Thursday. But then the farmer says the frogs have to freeze in 3 times before spring is official. So having heard them since Thursday we probably are due....
in fondest. Tilda
