The prophesized summer slow down has finally arrived. This week is slow.. it’s only Tuesday and it’s s.l.o.w. And while this should be a great opportunity for me to work on some of those other projects I have in mind, I’m having a hard time motivating to start something new that I know I won’t be able to finish before I get
crushed under the boot heel of oppression caught up in the fall frenzy.
The cucumbers in my garden seem to be growing at a near-perfect rate. I’m getting one-per-day-or-two, which means I get to eat garden fresh produce every couple days without getting sick of eating cucumbers ad naseum. Here’s hoping next year I can get cukes *and* tomatoes..!
I’m tempted (*a LOT*) by the roving Mary Kay is selling. I am pretty sure I can justify the Khaki and Peacock merino, but I’d really love to get one of the larger lots of either the Rambouillet or the Bio Clip(!!) Merino. However, at $2.50 an ounce.. ouch.
Which reminds me, I’m not going to be able to go help shear Clun Forest lambs after all. The shearer had a conflict, so they moved the shearing to this weekend instead of last weekend, and I’m committed to the motorcycle rally for HCWR all day Saturday, so there’s no way I can get out there to help. Which I’m pretty sure means I won’t be able to get a fleece because they have a deal with the shearer where he just takes all the fleece so they don’t have to figure out selling it and I’m pretty sure they won’t want to be bothered trying to keep one out for me if I’m not there. So I’m bummed, but I s’pose there’s always next year.
