we went to samuels last soccer game, so we had to go watch andrew play too. he played in his last soccer tournament of the season. i dont know much about soccer but i want my grandkids to know i support them in whatever they do.
the prairie band pow wow is coming up in less than two weeks. my sister and i decided to have a stand at the pow wow. i have eight roaches done. i had more but donated one and made deals for a roach with a niece and nephew for their kids. it dont matter. if i sold all eight, which is unlikely, i would be happy.
i coulda had more but only had all fall, winter and early spring to make some eh. i was sorting hair and making roaches. then other things pulled me away. i will probably always make roaches. creating art is an outlet for me. i get satisfaction in seeing something i made.
i dont mind hanging out at a stand during the pow wow. thats better than trying to hold onto a good seat near the arena all weekend. thats too damn much sitting for me. i’d rather be kicking back in the shade and meeting people. we set up a tent or two with lawn chairs and have people stopping in for visits throughout the weekend. laughter can usually be heard around our stand.
i will charge the batteries to my nikon camera. i will take pictures at our pow wow. its kinda understood that people are gonna take pictures. some want to have their picture taken too. i need pictures to put on my website. i usually post pictures of indians dancing, singing or being indians.
i am dealing with the bone spur in my ankle. i will admit that it has slowed me down. i havent gone out and picked nenwezhek this spring. we have some left that i picked last year. that will have to do. i did get out to pick morel mushrooms.
i walked twice last week. i also danced bout half an hour last night. i wore my ankle brace each time. i didnt notice any pain. i do apply an ice pack to my ankle. i will continue to walk to strengthen it. not much i can do bout a bone spur but live with it. more than likely it is caused by my arthritis. i tell people in my mind i feel young, but my body is slowing down.
today we are grilling out. some of our family members are coming over. i like it when our family gets together. we sit around and visit. i like to see the grandkids. we are in a wind advisory. winds will be around 20 miles an hour most of the day. we will work around that.
i lost a coupla hens. the door was opened one day. we shooed a hen back in. i made a count and noticed two were gone. no sign of them anywhere. hawks may have got them. if it was dogs, they wouldnt let up til they were all gone.
gotta get ready for a cookout.
