I Love You, Weekend
Going home is good. Got two meals I didn’t have to cook (ok, I had to put a burger on the grill, but that’s hardly ‘cooking’), two loads of laundry done, a few groceries courtesy of mom (riiiiiiiiiiice!), snuggle time with kitties, and time to just hang out. Jeremy and the kids were there for a while, too. I quite enjoyed myself.
Played in my garden for a while before dinner. Two of three lavender plants are doing good… the other one looks kind of puny. St John’s Wort is up and at ’em… feverfew, spearmint, and peppermint are good… oregano is making a slow comeback… and I can already see the tiny little starts of columbine leaves. Trimmed off all of last year’s dead shoots, cleared the redbud leaves (the nice thing about putting your garden under trees… it insulates it for the winter for you), loosened the soil and sprinkled it with fertilizer (read: chicken pooooo). I’m not replacing anything that doesn’t recover… except maybe the sage. I’m not sure what’s going to happen with that, since I had to take it to the ground last year. I might just pot a little bush out on the patio here, and bring over my smallest lavender bush. Just depends. I still haven’t gotten a handle on how much sun this place gets… but my little window herb planter dealie is already sprouting, so it must get some.
Tomorrow; read anthro book, study anthro exam, write cover letter. IT NEVER ENDSSSS.
