I was rudely awaken, at an early hour, this morning so I could get myself going and out the door BACK TO DODGEVILLE. Sigh....The sign up for the Conservation R (can't remember what that stands for) Program, (maybe rotation?) was today. We've had some land in the program for 20 years but now the state and government are doing things differently and we had to reup.
Now, you get points for what you have planted in the fields, apparently, we have three types of prairie grasses, water table, runnoff, etc. Let's just say that the land was once an ancient sea bed untouched by the glacier that moved down this far. The top soil is probably about 4-6" and it's considered a "fragile" environment. We're the caretakers of this land, for now. We're trying to repair some of the damage from over farming the land.
That all made for a drive through Micky's for my free senior coffee. But, wait, don't leave I'm getting to my tea.
I would love to have a nice picture of a beautiful little china cup with my tea in it but I'm sucking down Yogi, Echinacea Immune Support tea and in my largest practical mug.
Both Riley and Mary are sick with head colds and I DO NOT WANT TO GET SICK. I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT WANT TO GET SICK. I'm actually saying that outloud so the universe hears me. I have way to much to do, places to be, people to see to deal with my nose running, sneezing, coughing and sleeping my way through my life.
So, no pretty cups just lots of Immune Support tea and let me tell you it doesn't taste all the great. They may have added European Elderberry, Mullein leaf, Astragalus root, cinnamon and rose hip but it still tastes like........................sigh.
I want to THANK ELIZABETH and BLEUBEARD, http://alteredbooklover.blogspot.com/ for featuring my blog on her post today. What a nice thing to do.
And, then I want to THANK ALL OF YOU WONDERFUL people that stopped by to say hello.
It helped make the last cuppa go down.
Some of you may have zipped by the link on a post a while back. I'm putting the link here again because, well, she's just cute and NO it isn't my youngest granddaughter, although she's cute too.
It's our new resident groundhog. She's making a winter nest behind the boulders that line our driveway. She's quite busy going in and out, creating new entrances, snacking on the ripe plums I put on her "sunporch".
I'm off to the studio, whooohoooo!
:)Bea Dance, it makes you feel good. Sing outloud it makes you feel even better.
Dance and sing at the same time and your cat will snicker at you.
