It’s just lovely this morning. A chickadee is busily preening his toes on the feeder.
I’m really liking the stars that we can see again. I’ve missed them.
I’m moving very slowly this morning. I needed a bit more sleep, but an automated phone thingie rang the phone at about 8. I’m hearing crows squawking away about something.
First thing before we rolled down to the shop yesterday morning was harvesting various plants. I wanted to get more into the flower press, so everything from sweet woodruff to grass plumes went in. Nexes found me some wonderful bracken and cut some of the pansies out front, too. After I got to the shop I got everything into the press, then got out of the way for the other teachers to do their classes. I ended up going home for a bit while Sam and Nexes were at the shop to rest, then went back to close up for the night, and we had still more customers in. We finally got back to the house with the Brigdhe’s Flame stuff and did our ritual. Afterwards folks came back to the house and we visited for a while.
Today’s chore list is to get the newsletter stuff sorted for the week, then house chores, then work in the garden and on the pathways. Nexes promised me that they’re going to dig the comfrey today and we’ll see what we have left of the plants that the comfrey has been “eating”. The St. John’s Wort needs to be done today, as well. If I get a few minutes I’m going to work on photos and fabrics. The Slugs ‘n Bugs fabric swatches ought to be here soon and there’s something at the PO, already. Maybe the fan order….
The shop is closed today. Summer hours – Thursday through Monday, 10am-6pm! If we’re supposed to be closed, but it looks like we’re there, try the door. If it’s open, the shop’s open!
