Inflation of all sorts:
Minnie's udder and belly are inflating. I swear her belly is almost dragging on the ground. I don't expect her to deliver for another week, but if she gets any bigger, she will have to roll rather than walk.
Food and gas. I still don't understand why economist's don't count food and gas in the inflation index. Food and gas (sometimes in the form of electricity) are what people buy. All the rest is extra, really. Perhaps some people in Washington need to get out more. Gas is $4.49 for regular here - and Kona is even higher. It's going up 5 -10 cents a week. Because we live on an island, that means mostly everything, if you don't produce your own, comes from somewhere else - fuel increases means price increases!
The only thing that seems to be deflating is my time to do everything!
Today, the plan is to bake the bread for the week and maybe make some pudding or lemon curd out of the abundance of egg in my fridge. I have a funeral to attend this afternoon. I would like to get some more seeds started since my husband made more tables out in the greenhouse. At least that would mean some time outside. The rains have stopped for the moment, but it is quite hot and muggy because the storm to the north of the islands is pulling the south winds up over the state. At least it isn't too voggy today.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
