Jack’s guest post sneaks under the wire again –
What a week!
We just finished our annual Celtic festival which, while it’s a lot of fun and was very successful, is very tiring and draining. But Wendy had an away from home rural health conference immediately afterwards and I had the post-festival tidying and financial stuff to deal with.
Wendy got back last night and sets off for her own annual GMEC conference tomorrow and is away until Sunday.
Tomorrow evening the wonderful Scottish harper Billy Jackson (who headlined our festival) will be back for an overnight stay before we both head to the Lincoln theater in Marion for a concert on Friday night.
On Saturday night, a bunch of volunteers are coming to the bookstore for a get-together ahead of the November elections.
Meanwhile we have a menagerie of seven foster kittens plus our own three cats who all have various levels of need.
Alongside all that of course we also had –
- Beautiful weather for the festival
- Marvelous music from good friends
- Wendy got a nice hotel with a tub in the bathroom
- The kittens are delightful (and exasperating)
- The weather forecast for Wendy’s conference is excellent
But, perhaps next week we’ll be able to draw breath!
Just before I got ready to post this I put a load into the washing machine and now it’s making beeping noises – – –
