Another beautiful morning, but I'm glad that I didn't move any plants from my greenhouse outside yesterday.
This morning's frost seems almost as intense as yesterday's. And, yesterday's cold snap did in one of my plants which has been sitting outside for more than two weeks.
As busy as this weekend appears, there may be a silver lining, preventing me from having time to move veggies and flowers to their summer homes.
I read on Facebook yesterday about one person who had moved stuff from his house to the greenhouse, only to forget to close the greenhouse door night before last. He's planning to start all over cuz he lost everything.
I spent the most of my Friday on the lawnmower or behind the vacuum cleaner along with scurrying from one chore to another.
One pleasant interlude came as I pulled out of the driveway and saw a group of folks with their dog coming down the road.
Turns out it was Alicia (whose thoughtful neighborhood-watch efforts have kept us alerted on wandering Brooke), her sons and her family from Nebraska. I was headed to town and told them to stroll around our newly mowed lawn. It's looking pretty nice these days.
Later, I remembered the lure of petting the horses in the barnyard and worried that they might not see the electric fence signs. So, I came back for a visit and to treat them to a dog romp in the hayfield.
As the Border Collies did their usual games, Little Foster remained enamored with their dog Duke.
We worried briefly that the two may take off through the woods back to Alicia's place. Finally, someone managed to grab Foster's leash as he raced by.
So, as the visitors headed across the field through the woods on their trek back home, Foster and I went on to town.
Later, Bill and I went in to town again and enjoyed the usually delicious meal at Mick Duffs, where we saw the mayor of Kootenai, Mike Keough aka hubby to Sen. Shawn Keough.
Mike says that it's extremely important that voters not take situations for granted and show up at the polls for Tuesday's primary because of several hotly contested Republican races involving local candidates.
Again, I second his motion. VOTE TUESDAY!
We received word this morning the Willie made it safely to Seattle to meet the European travelers. So, Willie and Debbie should be heading back to Sandpoint sometime this morning.
We're looking forward to hearing Debbie's stories of her wonderful trip.
Lots to do, with my farrier coming soon and the mother-daughter tea at 11, so I'll sign out and wish everyone a wonderful Saturday.
