Ala hum dooley lai.
I’m going to Jeff’s cousin’s bridal shower today. I hate to say it, but I sort of get uncomfortable at these kinds of things. Especially because I’ve only seen her like twice, and she lives in Texas. Ah well, I remember really appreciating it. I also remember being, without a doubt, more uncomfortable than anyone in the room, so I should just go and stop thinking about myself. Ok. Done.
Katy’s home now, and it’s great being able to spend an hour with her and not be worried that I won’t have enough time with her before she leaves. She lives here now! Yay!
My herb garden. I’ve got oregano, basil (leaf, sweet, and Thai), cilantro, parsley, thyme (lemon and regular), sage, and this curry thing that looks like rosemary. I still need to plant rosemary and dill.
I also filled the bed right behind it that night with jalepenos, eggplant, and squash (zucchini, acorn, and butternut).
Unfortunately, since then Maya has found it to be a great little pathway between the back steps and the other part of the yard. So I keep finding little footprints in my newly planted squash hills. Grrr. We put up a barrier of chicken wire on the side right by the herbs, so hopefully that will help.
Jeff finally built the last raised bed a couple of days ago (it’s going to be my salad garden) but it’s been so rainy I haven’t been able to move the dirt or plant. After I do that the garden is done! Well, it’s never really done, but phase 1 is done 🙂
I was at work at 7am feeling very sleepy and I got this feeling… Do I really have to come here every day? I guess ever since the semester ended I feel like there’s not enough spice at work. BORING. Anyway, I know that will pass soon, I just need to find a rhythm.
We made a Thai tofu curry last night. Yum. Spicy.
I love Sunday mornings. My family is so sweet to me.
Well, I have to get a move on. Gift registries await.
