No Spinning, No Knitting
The adventures of a knitting grandmother
She spins, she knits, she blogs about it all.
9. You're all waiting to hear about the new job, aren't you. So am I. The job opening is still posted on the internet. But the lady currently holding the position invited me to "follow" her for a few hours last week, which I did, and we will be doing the same next week. So that I can be familiar with what is involved. And with the staff she manages. And they wanted to know my birthday for the office celebration calendar. I hope this is not jinxing the situation. I hope I have an official job offer by the time my vacation is over. Keep the good thoughts coming.
10. Have I mentioned that the grandbabies are coming?
It has been quite windy here the last couple weeks. Shingles have been blown all over -- fortunately none of ours -- and leaves and branches now decorate the ground. Strong winds in the spring are a staple of our yearly weather. And every year the winds come along right when the fruit trees are blooming. One year all the flowers blew off the plum tree and it actually bloomed a second time. And we had a great crop that year. This year not so many flowers were lost, but the young fruit took a major hit. Tiny plums litter the ground under the tree. It's always so disappointing to see this. But quite a few still remain on the tree.
Let's hope these manage to hang on. If they do, they will be ready to pick in about four or five weeks.
The pear tree seems to be doing well. I've found very little fruit on the ground. But these, of course, won't be ripe until the beginning of September.
Hope your gardens are doing well!
