sleeping in and gardening
April 27, 2012
I went to my first live burlesque show (at Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret) last night and had a great time. I also imbibed just a tad too much and did not take good care of myself, so am feeling a bit woozy this morning. Enter reason number #356 I love working at home: I can go party on a weeknight, then sleep in and muddle through the next morning just as slowly and carefully as I want. (Not to rub it in or anything…)
But what I really want to show you is the gardening I did. I had some minor dental work done this week and got entirely too stressed out about it. The appointment ended up going quickly and nearly painlessly, which meant I walked out of the office with an excess of adrenaline needing to be burned off. So I went to the garden center and bought a bunch of stuff to put in my empty planters:
Lavender, chives, basil, two kinds of mint, some pansies, and some flowering thing I got because it looked cool. And remember the tiny little columbine sprouts I had a couple months ago? Here’s what they look like now:
The best part: they’ve got buds. They’re going to bloom this year. Yay! Also, the big purple clematis is blooming! I have a real garden!
It’s been gorgeous here the last couple of weeks. I’m trying to get out and enjoy it as much as I can. It’ll be easier, now that the copyedits and galleys I had (at the same time!) are done.
