just a normal night on the prairie

yes, we grow cats in pots

rhubarb -- hopefully the manure will spice it up

pussy willows have already "blown" out to leaves ...

getting a feel for the size of this years "patch" ... looks larger than I thought
next up tonight is plotting the rows
and looking south towards town

got Bessie out for a ride.

ducks in the neighbors pond.

and on the day of rest

she worked most of the day (and is still at the office at 8:05pm) ...

I had an early morning meeting in Gaylord ... nice drive in Ruby ... a trip down to the local Shopko for some binders and $100 later it was a couple of bags of stuff ... Mom and I went to Mankato for lunch and a spot of shopping ... 28 yards of fabric in 1/2 hour and $100 later (it was a good sale!) ... a haircut from family friend Keith at his new shop (it's a nice place!) ... and back to work.

tomorrow is another day.

the big day

it's kind of dull around here today.  we (I) like it that way -- clean up the messes, get the shit tossed that needs to be tossed, file things away and make plans for the rest of April.

tonight is a meeting in Mankato (I get to leave town) .. will pop back into the office to check the answering machine and the computer -- the efile acceptance confirmations have been slow to non-existent today (overload).

tomorrow is a ditch meeting in the metropolis known as Gaylord Minnesota (population 4 -- well almost 4) ... at 8:00am ... need to leave by 7:15 --- it's a pretty drive thru the countryside.

lunch with Mom.  maybe a haircut and a eye job.  and back to the office to work on the projects. 

I'll sleep in on Sunday.  More time then.


ps.  the garden got tilled today!  big plans for the patch this summer.  retirement was short lived (really short).

the end is near

it's been a 105 days of work.  lot's of work.  and there is much more to do.  but the end is close -- really close.

I couldn't do it without  Robyn, Meagan, Kevin, Jeremiah and Cindy ... they rock!  Other than a spot of drama on Thursday -- we've been a drama free work zone!

4 more days and I'll be sleeping in -- or rather sleeping in until 6:00 instead of 5:00 ....
