First and foremost, I want to thank all the wonderful people who showed up for my combination Birthday
and Solstice Party. The gluten-free brownies I made went really fast, which I appreciate, because I found
them dangerously delicious and I sure didn't need to eat that whole batch by myself! It meant SO much to me
to have so many people come to my home and help me celebrate. Having come down with a terrible case of
bronchitis and sinus infection the end of May, and fighting with it for a few weeks, even though my energy
level was not yet back to normal and I probably looked a bit ragged, it was a wonderful day and I am so
appreciative of everyone who came to celebrate with me. We had a great spread of food and lots of laughter,
a wonderful afternoon! Thank you!!
The tree that broke in April and has been suspended over the power lines ever since finally came down. I
wasn't home when it happened, but I know it took the power out as evidenced by the blinking clocks when I got
home. The thing landed in my yard and hit with such force the trunk made DEEP holes in the ground. I spent one
evening after work with the loppers cutting the branches and limbs and dragging them up to the road. The next
day I took the chainsaw out and cut the massive trunk sections into manageable pieces and, with help, got all
but 3 of the pieces up to the road. Those last 3 trunk sections were finally carted up to the road 2 days later,
I needed time to recover! I would have preferred the electric company had dealt with it after I called them about
it over two months ago, but now that it has fallen, and I have cleared it, I am VERY glad to not have it hanging
over my head (quite literally) anymore. It made me nervous every time I had to mow under it.
We have an Escape Room event scheduled for the first week of July, which it turns out has a lot of people traveling
for the holiday. So I am requesting anyone who IS planning on being here in town and attending the event to please
let me know by June 29. If no one is able to make it, we will move it to another time. There are a couple different
Escape Rooms in town, we were planning on going early Saturday afternoon, July 6, but had not settled on which
location. So please let me know if you are in town and want to do an escape room on Saturday, July 6 and we will
either plan, or reschedule, accordingly.
Hope to see you at an event soon.
