< Bye Bye Kitty
A Weekend of Freedom! >

Later Today: While I was gone to the pound --and I wasn't gone very long-- somebody stole my spading fork and the three bags of bat guano I had set out to use in the garden today. Grrrrrr. I don't know what I will do. The nursery is so far, and I am trying to conserve gas. Maybe I'll see what they carry at Orchard Supply when we are on our way home from the theater.

Rachel and I are going to a matinee of Corpse Bride.

At the pound, there was a dog in the closest corner cage that really wrung my heart out. It was what I think they call at Blue Tick Hound, and so beautiful! But it was so thin and scared! I was tempted to bring it home, but I don't know anything about hounds. Also I don't need more expense, etc. I feel very bad about it. Rachel pointed out that you can't save every animal in the world. Oh, but it's sad!

I have cabbages, broccoli, and parsley to plant, as well as my three kinds of peas. I also have seeds for spinach, chard, lettuce, carrot, radish, and various esoteric salad greens. Something tells me I'm not going to get it all done today, but the pea seeds have been soaking,l so I have to get those in. I pulled out the last of the beets and all the basil. I'm trying two ways of preserving basil--keeping it in a vase with water, and freezing it.
