Forgive me for the inordinate amount of sunshine I am going spew at the world today! I even searched for a fun GIF (I won’t pretend I even know what that stands for) to share with you displaying my excitement, similar to how my friend Alyssa did, but alas, I don’t have the knowhow to find or implement said GIF. C’est la vie!
But let me just tell you that after spending 4 days in pajamas and only walking to and from the bathroom, I felt like a new person this morning when I woke up, HOPPED out of bed to put on REAL clothes and met David for a working breakfast at La Patisserie (a spinach, mushroom and Swiss omelet, breakfast potatoes, which are seriously creamy and delicious and wheat toast, split with the little munchkin).
Seeing the outside world did wonders for my mood! I promise to never take my health for granted again. That’s probably a lie, but I’ll really try not to.
I think I finally felt like rejoining life again last night, when instead of slurping down another applesauce, I opted for real food.
(Served with non-local couscous)
The farmers market has me inspired to get to work in my garden and grow my own food. And flowers. I’m really going to try and get better with tending to my overgrown yard, especially now that I’ve learned a new trick from my friend Jane Marie.
Do you love hydrangeas? I do! And we have a gorgeous deep purple hydrangea bush. Well I learned that if you pull a lower branch to the ground (without cutting it off), put a brick or heavy rock on top of the branch and cover it back up, that the branch will root and you’ll have a whole new hydrangea plant next season to replant wherever you want! More details here. Isn’t that awesome?!
OK, this post has no point. Clearly my energy is back, but my mind is still trying to catch up! Perhaps some time in the garden later today will help clear things up.
What is your favorite vegetable to grow?
I’m going to pick up plants this afternoon!
