Oh, what a rut we’ve been in here.
We’ve been preparing like crazy for our upcoming art festival — three days of desert camping and collaboration with somewhere between 30 and 200 of our closest friends. I’m not being facetious, they are our closest friends. And like last year, we’ll have no clear picture of what the turnout will be until people get there. This is further complicated by the fact that people come and go throughout the event.
It’s this weekend. Tomorrow we’re going out into the desert for even more preparation; we’ll be outside out the reach of the internet. We’ll be back early next week, probably Monday, depending how long cleaning up takes.
Among the other things that have kept us from blogging, Emily’s been occupied by some family obligations. Unrelatedly, my mom is about to leave the country with her partner — we’ll be house-sitting for them for the next few weeks. They have a bountiful garden for us to take care of. Sunflowers, roses, poppies, pumpkins, carrot flowers. Several fruit trees, and a grape vine that looks like it might bear fruit this year. Also lettuce, broccoli, thyme, rosemary, lavender, mint. We’ll be in charge of watering, pruning, picking, and helping the climbing plants up their terraces.
