I really thought that as the summer progressed I’d have more time for blogging. The greenhouse is only open by chance or appointment so that should give me more time, right? We’ve had some catering events, but no longer serve lunch six days a week. That should give me more time, right? The baking season hasn’t started yet. That should give me more time, right? Somehow, I think I need to study up on time management, cuz I can’t seem to get it right!
Mark & I did get a weekend away over the 13th and 14th of August. We went to Bismarck/Mandan, chilled for a bit, and went to the annual Chuck Suchy concert at the Bohemian hall south of Mandan. He is a folk singer from North Dakota and he had several other North Dakota entertainers join him for an outdoor concert. The weather was perfect, the music was wonderful and we enjoyed ourselves fully. I’m sure it is the most relaxed we have been in a very, very long time.
We drove through the Badlands on Sunday on our way to Williston for a company picnic for Mark’s work. I always wonder what the settlers to our prairies thought when they came across the grasslands and suddenly hit the rough terrain of the “badlands”. There is really no transition, just prairie, then canyons.
Back home we are working at catching up on projects and on maintainance. Our lovely pole fence that we put up several years ago will keep us warm this winter. We really will miss the look it gave the farmyard, but it was falling apart badly.
