Just another manic Monday!

Whew, what a Monday. I was at the statehouse convention center early to take down our extension display. We loaded up my car and Mark’s truck and then helped load things going to our office via the big truck. afgs tear down (2)

After that, I switched cars and made a run for ingredients for a dinner party tonight. Then I stopped by my son’s house where he had a crew to help him uproot all the bushes along the front and get ready for planting. kyle landscaping.feb29 (1)

Then I made it back home where I wrote two columns, and did all my laundry, since I am leaving town later this week for a girls trip.

I finally got done what I needed indoors, and I headed outside. I pulled up some of the blooming mustard cabbage feb29.16

I harvested a bunch of the dinosaur kale for a kale salad for tonight. kale harvest feb.29 (2) I replanted in the areas I have been harvesting with spinach, more kale, lettuce and broccoli. I sure hope it really is broccoli this time instead of cabbage like last time. veg garden feb29 (1)

I got inside and showered and changed and started prepping for dinner. We had friends over who had out-of-town family in. It was a great visit and a wonderful night to start outdoors. dinner party feb29 (2)

It helped having a little help with the meal. A fun time. The dishwasher is finishing up and I am not too long from bed!

Tomorrow after voting, I will head to Hot Springs Village to speak at 11 and then on to Garvan Gardens to tape TV. I hope the rain is gone by the afternoon. Don’t forget to vote!
