Honestly, it seems like I barely blink and another week has gone by. I've meant to post several times in the last couple weeks, but I seem to always get side-tracked.
This week is our last week of extra-curricular classes (orchestra, choir, P.E). In a way I'm glad about this, but in another way I'm not. It will be nice to be able to focus on wrapping up this school year (4 more weeks) without the distraction of running here and there. But the Professor is going to sorely miss his 3-days-a-week of Orchestra. He suggested to the teacher last week that "maybe they could have Summer band class?" lol I'm glad that he's so excited about learning and playing music. And he will continue to have clarinet and piano lessons throughout the summer, so he'll still get to put in lots of practice.
Later this week, my girlfriend from Alaska will be coming into town for a visit. Because she lives on an island, she always has a ton of places she wants to go when she comes here. She loves thrift stores as much as I do, so we'll be hitting all the local and semi-local ones. Plus shopping at the mall, which I myself have not visited since it was given a makeover (including a huge parking garage) a year ago or so. No, I don't do the mall scene much. But they do have a Cinnabon there...yum! That's worth a walk around the mall;)
Our weather has been rainy, with a few days of sunny weather thrown in here and there. We've been doing a lot of yardwork lately, as well as trying to figure out the best place to put this years garden. My hubby is thinking directly behind the house the best place... right where our playstructure is sitting. We've been talking about selling it anyway, and the spot would definitely get lots of sun. But we would have to level the spot a bit, something he says wouldn't be that hard. We do have access to a small tractor, so we may go that route. Meanwhile, I've been offered some railroad ties to use for my raised beds. But some people say not to use them because they're treated with some kind of chemical; others say if the ties are weather-worn the chemicals won't affect anything. I like the idea of free supplies, but the quality of my veggies does matter, so if anyone cares to weigh-in on the subject please do.
I think that's all for now. Have a great Monday~
