Last nite it started snowing – yes snowing – and did not stop until lunchtime today. This is just crazy.
Last week most of our plants started producing buds. The snow was nature’s way of telling them not to get too eager.
I killed the indoor plant I bought about a month ago. This was a new world record for me. I think it started dying when I picked it up in Lowes. I have told Cate I will not buy any more indoor plants because I just cannot cope with the inevitable losses and subsequent trauma.
Sure everything I plant outside dies as well – but it does not do so in front of me and I may not notice it for ages - when one day I look at a curled up brownish crispy thing and think – ‘didn’t we have an Aspidistra there a while ago?’
The line above was typed by Sissi. I refuse to let her do what she really wants to do – which is sit on the keyboard – so she hovers at the end of the desk and marches across it every five minutes. She is rubbish at typing.
I have been collecting unusual names of check out people. In the last four days I have seen Waynomi, Roechelle, Jezzica and Synthia. I am not sure why parents do this to their children.
What’s the matter with good old fashioned names like Molly, Lenny and Biggles.
