Made me smile…

June 28, 2007

Today has been a very, very bad day. (See HERE for details. I can’t write it out again)

But this actually made me smile.

No Sir, I don’t like it

June 25, 2007

I don’t like this. My husband just left for his sleep study and I’m suddenly feeling very lonely. I haven’t spent a night without him at least in the house for three years and I already miss him. I don’t think he believes that – maybe he thinks I’m having a party with the cat and dog – but I do.

Thinking about it, this is the first time I’ve slept without another human in the house in seven years. Yikes. It used to not bother me at all. I used to like living on my own. I don’t think I would anymore.

If only I could get away with this…

New flowers

June 22, 2007

Things in the vegetable garden haven’t been going well. The tomato plants seem to be doing okay – the flowers have started blooming so that’s a good sign – and the pumpkins are doing well, but not much else is.

The lettuce and squash never even sprouted. I think I have three pea plants, but they stopped growing at about 1 inch. I have three watermelon sprouts, but they’re still tiny. The strawberries are growing and getting ripe, but they’re really small.

The things that are growing the best are the vegetables I planted for someone else – radishes. They were the first thing to sprout and I’ll be picking them this weekend. They did great! I’m not a huge fan of radishes, but I ate one the other day and they are so much tastier straight from the ground. I’m not surprised by that – I was just surprised that it made me want to eat the whole thing.

The flowers are doing much better than the vegetables this year. The plant I’ve really been wanting to flower finally did this week and wow, is it beautiful. The yellow roses opened up and they’re huge and have a pink fringe around each petal. Here, check it out.

Edited Saturday, June 23rd because I called my radishes both turnips and radishes in the same sentence.

Norbert?

June 8, 2007

NorbertMugglenet has posted artwork for the Deluxe Edition of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Quite interesting. I think this is the first time riding a dragon has even be alluded to.

To me, it looks like this dragon has a ridge down his neck, and I assume it keeps going down his back. Perhaps this is Norbert, the Norweigan Ridgeback from book one. Hey, it could happen. I’m sure Hagrid would be happy to know he’s alive and well.

How fast do dragons grow, anyway?

Can’t wait for July.
