Whew! Where did April and May go? We're into June and I guess the testament to my activity is that I haven't had time to sit and blog. Something I want to change and need to build into my practice. I thought I would use my 'tweets' from the last months as a way to play catch up:
30 Mar - Off to check out milk cows under a BLUE sky
2 Apr - Sitting down to write article on agroecology and missing my view over Schumacher College garden

18 Apr - Back on the porch with a book and the sun... Oh how I missed this in the winter
21 Apr - PC candidate says election is about leadership & talks of "steady hand of Harper"... Oh that's what it's called.
21 Apr - PC candidate doesn't think questions from Sask. farmers valid bc they aren't in his consisutency. That's leadership...
