A good day to work outside. Still gotta fix the netaphim since other matters interfered the last couple of days. Lots of weeding to do. Even in a drought our watering supports the weeds just as it does the vegetables and flowers.
The Minneapolis Art Institute balanced its books. That’s a good thing. Those who work and volunteer there know the last year saw colleagues cut from the work force and strain was present.
