Last night was so much fun!!! I haven’t gone out with the girls in such a long time (years) and it was just great to see everyone. Whats really great on top of it is that this morning is not like the mornings after girls night used to be. I am not hung over and that is a precious gift. I am tired, though, since my best friend and I stayed out until closing, sitting at a table, talking like we haven’t talked in forever. That is an even bigger gift.
I have today off and am sitting here with my coffee wondering what I want to do today. Ok. I know I want to finish getting the planting area ready and get my seedlings in the ground but I also want to drive out to Port Orchard to see my friend that is set up at a street fair going on there this weekend. The problem I am having is deciding which one is more important to me.
The friend doing the street fair is a close friend I haven’t seen for quite some time and would really love to see her. She recently went to Australia for work and I know she has some great tales to tell from there and probably some pictures. I’ve also been too busy to find the time to see her when she has been around in the past.
On the other hand, Port Orchard is an hour away. That’s not that bad, until I start to do the math. Two hours drive time, at least an hour at the street fair, its twenty minutes to 11am now. That’s pretty much the whole day at this point.
Then there are my darling seedlings. They need in the ground asap or I fear they are going to start dying off. It will probably take most of this day to get the area prepped and part of the evening to get the plants in the ground.
Both things have their own pay off. Both pay offs are long term. Both would be sad to miss out on.
Ok. I’ve decided. I’m staying home and getting my seedlings in the ground. I know it would be a daily sadness for a bit to see my seedlings start to die off, especially with all of the seedling disappointment I have had this year so far. That said, I’d better get going!!!
