Should I Be More Nervous?

Part of me feels like I should be more nervous about my presentation on Saturday. Do I really want to get up in front of twenty plus people and talk for 20 minutes? No not really…but I could have opted out and taken an open book test….I chose to do the presentation. 

Talking about upcycling will be easy peasy and I am bringing examples of things I have made in addition to the new things I made for the birds. All I have to do to help me is put my facts on some index cards. All I need to turn in is an educational based resource page…which I still have to put together and print out.

Today I was lured away by dirt…you already know about my hanging cherry tomato baskets and my hanging strawberry basket. Today I went out and bought a few plants, I spent less than $40.00 so hopefully I will grow at least that much in food.

The barrel has kale and red leaf lettuce and in the ground I have a pumpkin, some acorn squash, and some butternut squash.

Here are some roma tomatoes and in the small container in back I have some bib lettuce.

Here is the plant for the BLT’s. Hopefully by the time I get a tomato big enough, I will have mastered some kind of bread recipe.

Eggplant on the right, peppers in the barrel, and some zucchini on the left.

The lavender I bought last year from the pricey greenhouse that was supposed to come back….hasn’t come back yet. I bought two regular ones just in case it doesn’t. I haven’t taken the cover off of the grill yet but I noticed it in the picture. The cover is not even a year old…I guess it didn’t fare so well this Winter.

I also put some herbs out on the back porch…

And some sweet banana peppers….I can see the no bread/cracker thing becoming a problem come harvest time.

I also picked up a movie while I was at the library today. I had every intention of watching it tonight…I just ran out of time. I still have to food prep for the next two days. Where did my day go?

I have heard it’s a great movie, maybe tomorrow night after the Italian class party?

A couple of things about the ex mother in law….remember that part about teaching the kids how to be good humans when I cooked her breakfast on Mother’s Day? She said to the Boy “I must be dying if your mom is cooking for me.” She has since had a relapse and the infection is back. They also think she may have had a stroke or has possible alzheimer’s disease? First rule while living in this town….don’t get sick enough to need the hospital. Also…. I am not taking the blame for that one. It’s true what Big K always says “no good deed goes unpunished.”

The boy came home and said he might have to go live with his grandparents now? Way to step up to the plate ex husband.  I can honestly say…that is one decision I have never regretted, making him an ex I mean. Such drama….I hate drama.

Now I am off to make my breakfast and lunch for the next two days and chop up some vegis for a vegi tray to take to the Italian class party.  If I’m lucky I will have a little bit of time to work on my resource page……Zia
