- Community Radio: I've been the only anchor in town for a couple of weeks. That means planning news shows, reporting news, and editing news for our M, W, F show, Local Talk.
- Dance: I've been pretending to be a modern dancer, with my friend Valerie's company Co'Motion Dance Theater. Every year from Feb. through April we amateur women dancers meet once a week. As April yields to May, we start meeting 3 or 4 times a week, then perform around Mother's Day, as "Women in Motion". Fabulous women, fabulous fun, total time suck.
- Social Justice Committee: Church politics, whew! We've had more than our share this year, and the upshot is that I volunteered, in a weak moment, to chair our Social Justice ministry (maybe I can use my position to organize a Days for Girls event!)
- Spring: We have four acres. It would be a crying shame if at least 1 of those acres wasn't wall to wall with vegetables, right? I've actually backed off on my ambition from previous years. Only 100 tomato plants this year!
I have been so preoccupied with a thousand details that I've let a $500 pair of glasses that I probably needed to return the first week I got them, because they don't work for me, sit around for almost a month (I missed that first week's appointment to return or somehow recoup my loss). So, no, it's not a good time for anyone I love to be graduating from high school or getting married. But dad gum it, that's what they're going and doing. Well, you know what they say about necessity being a mother!
Below is a graduation quilt (due June 3) that I have been working on. The fabrics are so delicious! The triangles are large, 6" a side, so that I get to ponder and play with the placement of each one. And what an exquisite pleasure it is. I guess I'll call the eyeglass doctor tomorrow.
