hanging in there
Got an email from garden web today and it reminded me how lax I have been on checking in, when you all were so kind and supportive. My deepest apologies - I am the kind to crawl off by myself when I have emotions to deal with, or just don't know what to say.
I am doing okay. I still have two tables full of plants to put in as there seemed to be no point in putting them in the ground during the dry weather as it is a heck of alot easier to water trays then haul buckets out to the woods-not to mention I have well water so not alot to go around. How did it get to be fall so suddenly? I am not worried-I make the beds a year ahead of time, by which I mean dump piles of used cavy shaving in the woods, pile on leaves and pine needles and cavy bowl dumpings, turn over mid summer and *BAM* woodland beds. Last year I buried any potsful that didnt make it into the ground and they came up perfectly well. In fact I just planted my midland shooting star that germinated spring of 2004.
A friend got me into working with gemstones (settings, wrapping, beads, etc.) and I am having fun with that. I got two kittens for mother's day and fussed over them all summer. My son made it home from Japan and started his third year of college, at UB, and is the student rep. of his department (linguistics).
I am dating. Not sure if that is good or bad or worth mentioning, but I would feel dishonest if I didnt admit it. So that is a summery of me-hood I guess. I think of all of you.
