today i have to head to wichita. there is a health clinic there that has a gardening program. they are under the same grant as we are. i will help them in whatever way i can. so i am working with 4 different gardens. i think more people should get into gardening. i remember back when our people were poor (we didnt always have casinos) they had to garden.
some people kind of amaze me. they view gardening as a no win situation. they are sure it will fail so they wont even bother to try. gardening is a gamble but it can pay off in fresh vegetables. some think that modern methods are the only way to grow, that you have to irrigate. they dont understand that things can grow naturally. irrigating is nice but history has shown it leeches the ground and wears it out faster.
i got an email warning about the heat. i agreed with most of it. i do drink plenty of water when i am working outside. i have to since i have alot of water loss thru sweating. the heat advisory said to wear a hat or use an umbrella. i always wear a hat but the umbrella thing is a bit out there. i can imagine trying to weed a garden holding an umbrella. i think if you are outside alot you get used to it. on the other hand i dont push it when it is real hot.
i meet people that dont know who i am but know my kids. they say oh so you are their dad. either they get around or i dont. maybe a little of both. lately i just go to work and then home. when i venture out it is to the casinos. i do get my walking in though.
i got my first batch of sema finished. looks like i will have enough to last me. i notice that some people had sema that is either lime green or yellow in color. they must fix it different. i just do it the way i was told by the old guy that got me started.
i am ready to travel this weekend. i am not a fanatic about pow wows. i dont sit there from friday evening til sunday afternoon. i try to catch an afternoon and evening performance, thats usually enough. and check out the stands. pow wowing is just an excuse to travel. i remember a mall along the way that gave great massages. i am up to take a little side trip whenever they come up. if i see something that catches my attention i will pull off the road and check it out.
should be a good weekend..
