Let’s get the under-the-weather stuff out of the way. Still feeling crappy. Still congested. Have now entered the coughing my lungs out stage.
I was trying to decide whether to go to a run-through of Kiss Me Kate on Sunday or Wednesday. Well, no one needs to hear me coughing constantly as he/she is trying to remember lines and sing and dance, so Wednesday it is. Thank goodness I have some flexibility there.
And I just found out I’m going back to Chautauqua for 3 weeks to coach Our Town. The director is an old friend of mine – one of the most delightful people I know – and I loved Chautauqua, so this is a win-win. Don will hold down the fort here. Don was just in Our Town. Now, I’m coaching it. Full circle in the Hill-Sparks household.
And you’ll get to see photos of Chautauqua – a delightfully charming place, which is like another world. Sort of like Brigadoon.
I ventured out in the afternoon yesterday to see what was happening on the property. My word for this post is: Green. New growth is everywhere.
Flowering quince buds
Lilacs – just about ready to open
Glorious. Everything is late this spring, but today’s temps in the high seventies and bright sunlight will move things along.
I still haven’t mulched, simply because I don’t have the energy to go the garden shop to buy it. Maybe Monday? For now, I’m taking it easy because I have no choice. I’m just about finished with my current book and then I have to start another one to review. I have several book reviews coming up in the next month or two and that means more giveaways. Huzzah!
That took all my energy. I’m going to sign off now.
