Waxing Gibbous Dark Moon (I’ve been wrong on this for several posts)
Kate’s home and likely will be for a while until we get her neck dealt with in one way or another. She’s read. She’s sewed. She’s cooked. She’s helped out in the orchard work. Not enough for her sturdy Norwegian work ethic. Her neck is bad enough that work just makes it worse, but when she rests it subsides enough that she itches to get stuff done, a tough place to be in for such an active and alive person.
A bit more garden work to do. Stake the trees in the orchard. Put protective sleeves on my 2-year old, toddler trees. Put down black plastic on the forest edge and the shade garden area. Still, the end is in sight for this growing season.
This is said sotte voce: I may be a daddy! My dalliance with the peppers and egg plants seems to have begun to bear fruit. I can’t tell for sure quite yet, but it sure looks like both plants are with fruit. If so, I’m gonna be pleased. I’ll post pictures when I know more.
Paula and Lindsay come tomorrow morning to do some rejiggering of our site plan. Our work with them feels collaborative and I like that.
Tuesday evening is an event put on by our financial planner, talking about the current market situation.
Wednesday AM, most likely, Kate will have some more diagnostic tests for her neck.
Wednesday night is the Sierra Club political committee evaluation and celebration meeting. I hope enough folks show up to help us get a good sense of what happened. How many of our endorsee’s overall got elected. Why did the four campaigns we targeted win and why did two fail? What should be a time-line for next year’s political committee?
Thursday morning we see our financial adviser. Thursday afternoon Anastasia, Allison and I will judge the Northeast Minneapolis Art Show. Friday night we’ll go to the opening. Friday AM I have two tours and Kate has an appointment with the neuro-surgeon.
A very busy week.
