It's Going to be a L O N G Month....

Well, we had about 30 hours of steady rain.

 The girls were wet off and on all day.  And the temperature remained in the 50s.
 After chores I headed down to Brockport (in my Barn clothes), as at 9:30 we were setting up our show (opening Sunday).

Home by lunch time.
 The flowers Gary won at the Gala we attended last weekend are still hanging in there.

 A little before 4 I went down to the Welcome Center to see a solar powered cargo boat!  The first ever.
It was made from scratch at a school.

 What a great idea!

 Margay, the Mayor of Brockport was there....
 and both of us learned a lot in a short time.
 The "cargo" was 4 tons of cardboard, being taken to ???? somewhere near the Hudson River?
It is capable of carrying 12 tons! 
 I would love to design one of these babies!  A solar powered tour boat.
The Solar Sal is 40 feet long and has two 5 horse motors.

 When they left for Adams Basin, where they will stay at a B&B tonight, it had plenty of gusto.
So glad I went down to see it.  Would love to have solar at our farm.
Did a little door to door and stopped at Weggies for some lomain and sesame chicken.
Not in the mood to cook tonight.
 Still can't get used to Karen doing evening chores.  Had to check things out....I'm so used to tucking them in.

It's just 8pm and I am going to kick back.
Night all.

Out of Sync....

A short sunrise was followed by lots of's still raining!

 Mornings are really weird without Karen being at the barn for chores.  
No one to talk to....I really liked that.
 By the time the girls went out, it started to rain.
 Class at 10:30.

 Tomorrow we are going to set up our show at 
A Different Path Gallery.  
The opening is Sunday from 7-9.

I had an outrageously busy afternoon and went out to see the girls 
while Karen was doing evening chores.

 Still raining.

 We are supposed to have a major cool down starting tomorrow.
Gary needs to get these mums in the ground.

 Defrosted some sauce and a small container of eggplant....mixed it all together and put it on some penne for a nice meal.  Gary made the salad.  Yay!
I stayed up too late yesterday watching Longmier, and now I am so tired
Night all.
