I've been working crazy busy hours still. That project finished yesterday, the new project won't require the crazy hours, so there is a big sigh of relief that I will have time to clean and garden. Remember the freesia I showed you on Mother's Day? I was feeling very guilty that I hadn't found the time to plant those outdoors. What was I doing? Well besides working, I went to the thrift store and bought another couple of bags full of ties. That's a few of them on a very busy carpet
On Memorial Day weekend, we went to the Asian Festival. It was good as usual. I bought a beautiful blouse for a very good price. We do look at the booths for a short time, but most of the time, we like to sit way in the back under the trees and watch and listen to the shows. They have several stages, five I think, all of which have one show after another. I didn't realize until the photos were loaded on the computer that his lady was balancing a basket on her head.
Then the next day we went to an American Indian Pow Wow. It was very casual with just a few booths, but we had never been to one. They had people show how to make moccasins, fringe, etc., and they had dances. We spent a lot of time talking to the people in the booths. I don't do that enough - just talking to people to find out what they know that they can teach me.
Eventually I managed to plant the freesia outside. I have a barrel near the sidewalk and thought it would be a great place to plant the fragrant flowers. The next day, I came out to admire my handiwork, and apparently something had pulled them out and chewed out the roots. I guess the delay just gave me a few more days to enjoy the flowers.
