We made it through an emotional weekend. After the Tribute of Life on Saturday there was a dinner and get-together at our house for 50 or so family and friends. It was a good opportunity for locals and out-of-towners to visit and reminisce and have some food. A few good friends stayed the night and helped tuck the dad into bed later – it had been an emotional day for him, complete with a speech in front of more than 250 people, so he needed a little unwinding time.
Today we cleaned up, the kids did a complete clean out of the barn and there was even a chance for a nap. I sorted through the seed order and am going to use this space to write them down. Last year I neglected to record anything and lost the packing slip, so I am leaving myself a list here where I can find it again when ordering time comes around next year. I am pretty good at keeping records, but lousy at remembering where I put them.
We’ll still have to purchase our seed potatoes, green pepper and hot pepper plants, tomatoes in several varieties and some onion sets, but this will be a good start. Next weekend we’ll start planting some seed.
