A Festival, A Feast, & A Blown-out Knee...

Hi everyone! Wanted to let ya'll know that we will have the farm open on Saturday, October 3rd! We may not have lavender in our fields, but we'll sure have pumpkins! Our neighbor, Wild Boar Farms on Luckenbach Road, will be hauling over a truckload of fresh grown hill country pumpkins. Stop by and pick up your Jack-O-Lanterns for the season AND hang out and visit with us for a while; we'll let you know all about growing lavender in the Hill Country, AND - well, what we're still trying to figure out about farming lavender in the hill country ...

Jack will be happy to talk about farming, and I'll be chatting with anyone who will listen about my inspiration of Hummingbird Farms Aromatherapy Body Care.



It will be a busy weekend in Johnson City! Five other area lavender farms will be opening their gates, AND the locals will be preparing for a feast complete with live & silent auctions and entertainment at the 10th Annual Wild Game Dinner held at the Blanco County Fairgrounds in Johnson City.

If you can make it out this way, please go to www.johnsoncitytexaschamber.com or call 830-868-7684 for more information and to check out the other farms that will be open.

So - when it rains, it pours! Literally. We haven't had rain ALL summer and FINALLY after months of waiting for Mother Nature to give us a drink of her cloud juice, she decided to bless us with a bucket or two of the stuff. AND - in addition to that......

Get ready for this one.....

Jack and I went hiking in Big Bend National Park over Labor Day weekend and I blew out my knee. For real. I severed my ACL and tore my meniscus. But - this is a whole 'nother story.... I'll share more details later. In the meantime, I am scheduled for surgery on Thursday, 9/24. So - it looks like I'll be wobbling around out here at our place on the 3rd, and will probably just find a cozy place to sit with my leg propped up...... But anyhow - we sure hope to see you!

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear about your poor knee! I'll be thinking good thoughts on the 24th! ♥ Diane

Sir Nottaguy-Imadad said...

Sorry to hear about your knee. I tore the meniscus in both knees at the same time. Here's hoping you'll have a good surgery, effective rehab and a speedy recovery.

Justine said...

{{{{{{{{{{Deb}}}}}}}}}} The festival sounds wonderful, but you poor thing! How the heck did you mess up your knee so badly?

Justine :o )

Kelly B said...

Yowie!! Just reading that made my knee hurt! We will be praying for you! ;0)

Mrs. B. Silly said...

Oh no, Deb, I'm sooooo sorry to hear about the knee. I just tore my meniscus, I didn't have the additional ACL injury. So are they going to do a repair of the meniscus or just a clean out or have they not told you yet. The repair takes a while to heal and you'll have to wear a brace for a few weeks but the upside is that you get to drive those motorized carts in the grocery store, milk it for all it is worth and take good care of yourself, you don't want to mess up what the doctor done fixed!

Mrs. B. Silly said...

Oh and be careful what you eat while you are sitting around on your fanny, I gained 15 pounds after my surgery! I've taken it off now but there for a while my fanny was in need of one of those wide load signs. lol

Lavender Chick said...

Thanks everyone for your well wishes! Well - thanks everyone except Mrs. Silly.... 15 pounds! Are you serious??? My Lord, I feel my fanny expanding already!

LivingTheLife said...

Yowzers...that had to hurt. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers during the surgery and recovery.

I went hiking, too...over this past weekend...nothing big but it was beautiful in Seattle so we took advantage. All the while I kept hearing my knee...creaking...I actually thought "what in the heck I would do if I threw it out in the middle of nowhere"? Sorry you had to experience that! I am anxious to hear the story, however.

Take care...have fun at the festival...I would LOVE to be there...but I'll be in DFW for a baby shower friends are throwing for our daughter.

Blessings...
Teresa

Have been meaning to tell you that I really LOVE that green velvet chair in your picture.

Theresa said...

Deb, so sorry to hear about your knee! Please do EXACTLY what the doctor says so that your knee will heal correctly.

I certainly wish Sir Nottaguy and I could be at the Festival. I've never been to Texas. As a matter of fact, I've never been any farther west than St. Louis.

Mrs. B. Silly said...

Hey there, Just checking in to see how you are doing. You're probably doped up on the good drugs still. I'm hoping you are feeling no pain!!!

Hugs, Bridget

Barbara said...

Wow, sorry about the knee....
Everything seemed to have happened on the first weekend in Oct and I had planned a vacation to Virginia.

Would love to have attended the Lavender Festival...next time.

Take it easy.

YaYa's Funhouse said...

So sorry about your knee. Hope you have a speedy recovery.

Mrs. B. Silly said...

Hey Deb, I was just wondering how your recovery is coming along. I hope you haven't found that 15 pounds that I lost. lol

Kat said...

Hi sweet friend! Life is gradually getting back to "normal" for me so I'm hoping to be able to visit everyone more often.

And...look what happens when my back is turned! So sorry about your knee. I sure hope you're healing well and will be back blogging soon.

Hugs!
Kat

Hi L.C.,
hope the knee is on the mend.
In the mean time enjoy your lavender & if you are like me, you've already started crafting Christmas goodies w/your lavender.
I have 126 plants up here in Spokane WA....not the best place to try to grow it,,,but I am determined & hopefully this WInter won't be so harsh. Oh and they say deer won't eat lavender,,,maybe so but they do like to trample over it! lolol!-uugghh!
>^..^<

Italy Fever said...

Oh my gosh! I've been so bent out of shape over my sinus surgery that I've not been keeping up with things. Your knee makes my nose sound rosy! Take care!

Kat said...

HAPPY HAPPY THANKSGIVING sweet friend.

I miss your blogging and your visits. I hope your recovery is going smoothly.

Hugs!
Kat
