New York Day 1...Not Quite San Antonio

Sitting in the San Antonio International Airport.  We were supposed to board at 1:55pm and be in the air at 2:30.  We received word that our flight was delayed 1 hour.....then 2 hours.  The delay was due to weather that Houston was experiencing and the flight we take goes through Houston and they had to wait for it to pass before they could get to San Antonio.  We boarded at 4:30, only to be told that the flight was cancelled after everyone was belted and bins closed.  Now we are waiting in the airport for another crew to come and take us.  They said they cancelled the other flight because when it arrived it had a malfunction that was fixed before we boarded, but because of laws the flight crew could not fly anymore for the night (since they were only 2 min. away from non fly time.  So another crew is coming from Houston and should be here around 8:00pm and of course that means we will not get to New Jersey until after 1:00am.  What an experience for my first time flying.  I am still optimistic that this is normal and it will all be okay.

My nerves were up and I had just relaxed after looking out the window at the wings of the plane and making peace with whatever happens, then we get told it was cancelled.

Garden 2011 #1

Here is a video of my back garden in the state before I cleaned it up for Spring planting.  Last weekend I ended up moving the:
  • brussel sprouts to the small bed,
  • cilantro and I think I will need to cut it back as it does not look too good,
  • chives into the small bed.
I pulled all the vegetables that were looking bad and the cabbage that looked like something took a chunk out of it.  I also layed the 4 large bags of mulch that I received from a fryeecycler.  My husband lent me his muscles and he Incorporated compost into the beds and turned the soil.

After the cleanup I was able to access where the plants will go in the spring and I have more room to plant more of the tomato varieties that I have bought. 

I finally got a chance to plant 3 of the 4 potato varieties into rectangular planters closed to the house:
  1. Freedom Russet
  2. White Superior
  3. Red Norland
  4. Yukon Gold (pending to plant)

New York, New York

My daughter and I are on the way to New York soon.  Be on the look out for posts and pictures of our first trip out of Texas as well as first time on a plane.  Looking forward to it.
