The sky is gloriously blue. There’s a light breeze and it’s supposedly 60F… Nope. It’s only 52. It’s the sensor on the thermometer in the sun again. Sam is on the porch setting out an egg for the crows…and I’m telling tales because he doesn’t know I’m writing about him….
I did get a lot of the flowers processed yesterday. Not all… there were just too many. Sam and I spent most of the day, other than working with customers, doing paperwork, filing and trying to resolve some of the bankcard statements. Sam got the windows washed so they no longer say, “Psychic Fair”. Fawkes and Nexes went into Newport to run errands and then we ended up going back again later in the day (yes, I went, too) to drop off a couple of job applications and to stop at Mai’s Asian Market. I always love going in there. She has all kinds of foods, yummy snacks and teas along with clothing, dishes and lots of other stuff. I spent a while looking at the ancestor offering set. I bought a bunch of small stuff, bean threads, corn nuts and candies enough for a couple of months.
A crow just grabbed a chunk of egg. He’s standing there looking around with a mouthful. …another one just grabbed 3 pieces… and another grabbed two. …Hey, who got the last two without me seeing it?
We had a misfire last night with the Wicca 101 class. One of the students was traveling and got stuck in traffic over in the Valley. We decided that postponing made the most sense, so we all rolled on home after talking to Rowan for a while.
The guys put a supper together and I fell asleep in the recliner. They finally woke me to eat and I realized it was the last day of Kupalo (it’s a festival from my heritage) and I needed to get the St. John’s Wort cut. It was too dark to do it right, but I did get out there for a while. I need to go back out as soon as I can get this newsletter out to collect up and tie the stuff that we’re going to hang at the shop and to clean up the ragged job I did on the plants. I also cut a fair amount of horehound in the process.
Star’s family is doing the bulk of their move this weekend. We’re shifting a few more things down to the shop, a couple of furniture pieces. Sam’s got most of the rest out to the garage, so he can finish sorting. We’re all looking forward to having them out here!
Fawkes is here for several extra days. He needed a break and they actually gave him the time off, so he’s getting to play…although we’re probably going to put him to work, helping with shifting some of the things from Star’s.
Sam is going to be at the shop today. I’m going to spend some time in the gardens and on the computer (gotta get the Lughnasadh stuff set up in the computer!) and a bunch of us are planning some cooking for later in the day.
The shop opens at 10am. 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!
