I want to add some yucca, but they are the State flower, so I can't dig them from the wild. I'll need to go buy them. Allan bought me a bag of wildflowers with fertilizer and I hope to plant that around the corral area, too. I want my whole property to be one that requires little to no replanting and upkeep. And I want it to be as natural as possible. In the fall, I will plant a few daffodils, crocus, iris, just because I love them. And I want a clump of fountain grass for for the same reason. I wish I had brought some from my house in KC, but I forgot to dig it. Guess I'll be buying that, too!
Last night I attended a Village Chamber of Commerce meeting because I volunteered to do a newsletter of events in the county so that everyone (myself included!) can be more informed about what is going on here. There are tons of events, but if you're not in the right place at the right time, you'll miss something fun. I wanna have fun!! ALL the fun!!
Tonight was the Village Council meeting and I attended with my new employer to tell them about the event we are putting together and ask for some financial exceptions since it is a charitable event. It was interesting to watch the wheels in motion. And I like hearing about some of the mundane; it tends to keep the whole view of the area more real. I love it here, but I don't want to be oblivious to the real mechanical workings that keep it moving forward. It is rather easy for a small town to curl up and die. I hope I don't see that here, and it looks as if that isn't likely.
Don't you wish you had my schedule? I'm as busy as I wanna be, and I can say "No" to anything I want to! Even my "job" is something I can say goodbye to, should I want. Yeah ........
Life is beautiful!!!!!
