Not that today was a disaster re: planning. But really, when was the last time it worked out as planned? But them in the larger scheme of things, maybe “not working out as planned” is a good thing. Otherwise, where would adventures be?
Today, Simon dashed off to Nelson to be interviewed by the local radio station re: Mannethorn’s Key. (listen to it Monday at 8.30 – Kootenay coop radio – it streams). He also left with a shopping list.
Meanwhile, Nicky picked me up to go to Seedy Saturday in New Denver – then on to Butter for a snowshoe. The sun was shining. All was good.
We walked into Knox Hall, clutching our wallets, ready to spend money. And the room was dark, a projector at the front and a man telling us how to save tomato seeds.
Yes – no side rooms for lectures. If you wanted to buy seeds, you had to sit through a one-hour lecture first.
Ah. No. And really? Dare I use the word “idiotic” in describing this? These people lost sales. Every other Seedy Saturday does optional lectures in side rooms.
Okay – grrrr. Off we went to Butter and shoed up. We had great weather. The sun shone and the temperatures crept up above freezing. It looks like the beginning of our thaw. Fingers crossed. I also used my right arm pole for at least half the time on the hike and that felt wonderful. So – a good day after all.
Now then – I MUST get the puppies out tomorrow or they will never forgive me. Maybe, just maybe, I will get down to the lake across the road -or at least to the edge of a big cliff where the view of the lake will be grand.
