Weather and back to school

My hand is 6 inches, these were around 2-2 1/2 each. Thank the heavens that there wasn't many of them so there wasn't much damage yesterday when it hit.

I got Pat's bus schedule for school, bus will be here at 7:10 so he has to be at the end of the lane at 7:00. That wouldn't be all bad except he gets motion sickness when he eat and rides so he has to DONE eating by 6:00 so not to get sick. His wake up call is now at 5:45 A.M. just like last year. We were hoping since we transferred him to the local school there would be a later start to our ( MY )day. The good news is he will be home by 3:30 and that's about 1 1/2 hrs earlier than last year.

I also won't be on the road 5 hrs a day with transporting him so along with the huge savings in money I will be able to get my own work done instead of sliding it to the back burner and operating in crisis mode.

I've been inventorying the freezers and doing a good cleaning. Down to the last one in the kitchen refrigerator to do tomorrow morning as I start the "back to school" schedule since my wake up call will be 4:45 A.M.

Hope everyone is doing well...and HEALTHY

Blessed Be

Best laid plans

The best laid plans... is when the produce it coming in, stop every thing else :)

Usually I get about 1/4th of the cabbage I plant and no cauliflower. This year I got 1/4th the of the cauliflower and almost everyone of the 90 some heads of cabbage I planted. Wished I had made sure they were Kraut cabbage, being what they are, more of a spring cabbage than fall, they are too dry to make kraut so I am pickling some, made cabbage rolls for the freezer, blanched some and am dehydrating some.

Pat started riding his bike, still can't start off at a standing stop, needs an incline to get it moving but he is riding and keeping his balance for short distances.

We have also got back some news about Pat's medical problems. He is hypoglycemic and has issues with red food coloring. We are still jumping hoops with ins. for testing of other things including a learning disability/memory problem.

The rest of my goals and plans have fell apart, part of the garden coming in and Pat's issues that needed dealt with and now I have to have 2 procedures on my back within the next 2,fun.

Blessed Be
