Things have been crazy lately. With the big move happening this Saturday, most of our stuff is in boxes. I had to unpack a potato masher last night just to make dinner. It’s hard to know what needs to stay out of the boxes until the very last minute. Apparently for me, it’s a potato masher. All chaos aside, we’re really excited about the new place. I already have the back deck completely designed in my head – hanging baskets, a wooden bistro table, a string of white lanterns… now we just have to get it all over there.
Plant-wise, things are pretty slow at the moment. The corn just up and died one day so that’s gone. I might try it again next summer since it can live outside then. The bay tree is looking marvelous as always and the rosemary is half dead – literally – one side is brown and dead and the other side is lush and green and healthy looking. No idea what’s going on there – if anyone has any ideas, let me know. And the two peppers are still blissfully flowering away – and producing no fruit whatsoever. Hopefully they’ll do a little more once I get them out on the back deck.
My sewing machine is in a box and so are all my craft supplies, so nothing to report there. Though I’ve got some crayon rolls and ugly dolls on the sewing to-do list.
That’s it for the moment, but I’ve been trying to write a few more articles in between all the packing and I’m hoping to get those up before we’re consumed with moving this weekend. Wish us luck!
