What's planned for the future?
It was a rather balmy day here in the Midwest - but they tell us we are due for heavy rain and cold temperatures, maybe even a good freeze.
It's ok with us- we haven't put our garden in yet. The weather here has been so unpredictable the last couple years - it's hard to decide what to do. Last year we put our garden in early and everything got waterlogged from to much rain -and the year before that a late frost killed our veggies and we had to replant. So this year we waited and it seamed like we waited way too long - but now I'm glad we did.
Just hope we don't get any of the snow - they are predicting for the Dakota's and Minnesota. The frost would be hard enough on my pretty Lilacs and my soon to bloom Peony bushes but snow would absolutely destroy them.
Planning for the future certainly gets trickier - at my age - no use doing any long range planning; and besides according to all the worry warts, who have it on good authority, the world will end in 2012. I don't know if the Aztecs were right or wrong - but I figure I best not commit myself too far in advance, just in case.
Where is this post leading you ask? Well, I really don't know. I started out just wanting to tell you about a few things I signed up for around blogland - where the other stuff came from is a mystery to me too.
Sir Knight, who usually takes me out for Mother's Day has so gallantly agreed to forgo the fancy restaurant - and make me a yummy spread of tea party treats; so that I can join in on this Victorian Tea Party. Crab salad, cucumber sandwiches and whatever else he is willing to whip up - sounds extra yummy to me. He is the best cook around.
I am so blessed- He likes to cook and I love to eat. A match made in heaven LOL
I will have to put in some serious cleaning and organizing time to get ready for this event, hopefully I'll even have the annex cleaned up and ready to show off as well. I know Genghis doesn't think it will happen - but I am a lady on a mission. Failure is not an option.
Help me, I think I'm going MAD. And right on time if I do say so myself.
Ohhhhh! I am so looking forward to this one. I joined last year but a family emergency came up and I had to have Vanessa remove me from the party list. What a bummer. So hopefully we can make it happen this year and get totally MAD .. At least I still have all my decorations that I planned on using last year.
If you haven't decided that I am way to MAD - do come and join us. The more the merrier.
At least that's what they say. Isn't it?????
