The Race....Is On!!! {Garden Party... March 30th...and 31st!}

The Race is On!
I have set the dates... to reopen the Rabbit Hole...March 30th and 31st...11-9,
 {refreshments...6-9 both eve's...} 
Sunday, April 1st, noon til 4.... 
{Mid West , and Collector's Eye Shows...only 8 minutes away....make plans to attend...they are Amazing... they are Sunday, April 1st,...only...} {more on those...later..}
My heart...has been very Heavy...broken...for the last several months...for so many...many... reasons...
{ I even started smoking again....and...I don't care...Sally is paid for...and...it is...what it is...}
it's been nearly impossible...to get in gear...
But...now... I have set the dates! so... I have to Rock....
Dug in...today...even bought a new shop vac...immediately got it plugged up... and...it blew up...{well...it Belched...Dust...Everywhere!!!!}
 {have you ever eaten a dust covered ice cream cone?....my teeth feel just like that.... YUK! My hair...skin...they feel like I've been taring down Country Roads...in Sally...with the top down... and....Everything...in the Greenhouse...is coated...with dust...YUK!}
 I remember the old shop vac doing that, to me, and Peg...
Peg...oh my... she was flying out the back door to get away from it!
 All I saw... was the Back Side... of  Bib Overalls.....Hacking...and Exaggerated....Coughing...as only...Sweet Peg, can do... her feet weren't touching the ground!
 {Pray...Pray...Pray...for Peg... it's getting..soooo hard....for her...
only...one more week...then...they will send her home...but....she needs strength...and...Light...}
I started...on the Monster Clematis... in the Greenhouse... Oh My Gosh... Talk about...Hacking...I was ripping and taring...all the dead stuff off... made....HUGE...Messes.... Ugly...very ugly...
It's going to take me...every bit...of a month... to get everything pulled together...but...I will...
Love to Ya!

{Please...no anti smoking...lectures... I know...I know.... I've heard it all... you're right...I'm wrong...I haven't written....about the last several months...in detail...but... please...don't judge....it's taken...every ounce of strength...I have... to get out of bed...in the morning...let alone...take on...'The Journey'...Thanks...to all who...have held me up.... God...Bless...You... Thanks...to those who sent gifts...of kindness... my way...and went out of their way...to keep things...turning...I don't know...what I would have done...without them... : )}
