SFH Journal: 2018-05-01

Weather: A pleasant day with lots of sun. There were many errands and the weather cooperated perfectly. (Detailed Summary – click here.)

Daily Highlight: No, Serendipity Farmhouse is not Shangri-La. When we leave our house on errands, we won’t start aging dramatically. Yet, every time we leave the safe confines of SFH, we do encounter things that are either too sad or too humorous to bear. Today was no exception.

We watched a lady buy two enormous plants at Wegmans. Because she was parked near our car, we were behind her as she approached the parking lot. My beautiful spouse and I speculated that she must have either a pickup truck or a large SUV. Certainly, there was no way she could get those plants into a sedan.

We were totally wrong. The lady in question was, in fact,the proud owner of a small Honda Acura. We watched as she circled her car. She scratched her chin and tilted her head, she measured and pondered, she was determined that those two plants would go home with her.

The front door was opened and the seat went down. The trunk was opened and other things happened. Then the first plant disappeared into the bowels of the Acura. As we were leaving the lot, I could see that the second plant was going to follow the first.

We suspect that lady was successful in her mission and returned home happily with her new plants. We also suspect her unsuspecting husband had to clean up all the dirt that fell out of those pots and was scattered from one end of that Acura to the other. – Ah, the lovely month of May!

All Hands on Deck: Every free moment is filled with frenzied preparations. There’s very little time for reflection. As I said yesterday, we will explain everything in an upcoming post called “Ruffles & Flourishes”.

Plantings: Nothing to report.

Harvest: Nothing to report.
