Also, tsuj made me a lovely bud vase this weekend. So I now have a place to put a little flower if someone gives me one, hanging from my bed.
A few weeks ago, trouble4hire said she had been thinking we could plant me some mint. I really like mint tea, you know. She said if we put it in a pot outside it wouldn't get too out-of-control, but would still be pretty self-maintaining. I sort of made noises of agreement. Then she said, "So, if we did that, where do you think would be the best place to plant it?" In all honesty I said, "Your house?"
I think of myself as having a black thumb, but Fred has made it through five years if I'm not mistaken, and the lady at the checkout counter said he was beautiful. Aww. I may have to create some flexibility in my anti-plant policy.
