As I sit at home on a lazy Saturday morning with the girls, I thought itâ€™d be as good a time as any to update you on the mostly meaningless details of my life.
My herbs are really coming up. Iâ€™m not at all sure what Iâ€™ll do with all of the sage (what does one do with a vat of sage?) Oh, and my mint is thriving! My basil has been wildly plentiful, so Iâ€™ve made fresh pesto four or five times already this season (had so much that I even had to freeze some and give it away). Iâ€™ve also planted tomatoes, zucchini, and blueberry bushes, which are all doing really well. I have three blueberries in the fridge right now ready to enjoy!
I finally finished my stump (which will act as a footstool/ottoman) and repainted the Bob room in a purposefully obnoxious pink â€“ itâ€™s really pretty!
Speaking of refrigerators (at least I was), for Earth Day we decided to empty and turn off the fridge in the garageâ€¦ I know, I know, where will we put our vats of alcohol, extra condiments, and frozen food we never intend to eat? Well, we cleaned it out and finally did it. We figured that with Bob gone, we probably donâ€™t need two full sized refrigerators for the two of us (I know itâ€™s crazy) and I might have to stop grocery shopping as if weâ€™re a family of 7â€¦
See â€“ I said meaningless, but nonetheless true and informative! Itâ€™s the little details of oneâ€™s life that you miss out on when youâ€™re far away or busy with other things, so Iâ€™m going to catch you up on my details!
By the way, Lord of the Rings is scaryâ€¦ I love it â€“ oh I love it â€“ but itâ€™s so scary! Frank was right to talk me out of watching it at night before I went to bed but watching it at home alone (albeit with the girls) is very scary! Donâ€™t worry about me though, Phyllisâ€™s sweet snoring and Stellaâ€™s warm cuddling are comforting.
Right now Iâ€™m watching The Holiday (with Kate Winslet) for something like the 47th time and I love it. A little bit of an English accent mixed with Christmas decorations and wrapped up in a romantic comedy. Why arenâ€™t all movies like this? Thereâ€™s so much ick, yuck, and ack in the world â€“ all movies should be just like this! Except of course for Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, which are perfect, flawless, and timeless â€“ even though theyâ€™re a little scary sometimes!
