My favorite book of all time.
Yesterday I bought a classic to read this summer. I try to either re-read a great novel or try something I missed in school. I bought Wurthering Heights. Even though I seem to know the characters and the basics- maybe from movies- I have never personally read the book.
I also bought Wine 101 2008 and an herb book and some other terrific finds.
Toonces had a meeting in Roanoke and I rode with him. We lunched at Metro on some of the best sushi I've ever had. T doesn't even like sushi and he loved it. If you're in Roanoke give this place a try. A trip to the Orvis store has a new fishing outfit for me...or hiking, etc. and some great new black Croc flip-flops. While regular Crocs are too wide for my feet I tool around in them in the garden. But the flip-flops with a bit of a heel are super. Hard to believe in two weeks I'll be back in Missoula (Montana).
If you come to Stuart give this place a try.
If you make it over and Bull Mountain Arts is not open give me a call. If I am home I will come over and give you a personal tour.
This morning I was so happy to have the day to work in my flowers...turning soil, dead heading blooms, pulling weeds....then I remembered I have a 10am appointment. Dang it. At least I don't have to put on my make-up and I won't be away long. But I really wanted to go around in my soft scrappy tee and shorts working until T gets home. Darius is looking forward to a day in the garden too.
I am looking forward to seeing my Thugs this morning. They left out on their rounds early and still aren't back. Serious dog business must be at hand.
So good morning, have a great Friday and weekend. Here are some scenes from the garden this morning.
Anyone close by family/friends that wants a start of lemon balm just let me know. It is like the mint family- it spreads quickly and aggressively but is great for fillers and spots where nothing else will grow. And it smells wonderful. I read last night that the scent chases the blues away.
Post-post note: Sorry for all the template changes the past few weeks. I am trying out several styles to find what works for me. Right now I want black but had some complaints on the glare. After having several people look at it for me this is what I am sticking with- for now anyway.
