all in a days (before) work

I embarked on some yucky day chores today and marveled that I have kept all the plants and flowers that I got for my birthday alive. I know, I know, it's been FIVE WHOLE DAYS. :) If you knew my track record with green, pretty living things, you'd be impressed. :)
As I set out to do laundry, the tulips K (how I will heretofore refer to my husband) got me stretched their lanky limbs towards all the sun they could get.
And as I did the dishes, ok, I admit it, some were still from my Birthday (!!) (I'm a BUSY GIRL!!) at least I had this to look at...
No, the irony of it being what I look at while I do dishes is not lost on me. :) I don't think there is any better place for it. :) Although, K and I definitely have an equal-opportunity idea about chores and housework. We are a modern two-person family after all...
Well, it's off to work for me. Hopefully tonight will be just like last night...a woman who is "deathly" allergic to peppers but certainly not to Beringer White Zinfandel, and another in her 70s who asked me what an artichoke was. I wanted to ask her how she'd gone so many years and never crossed paths with an artichoke, but alas, I did not.

  1. Sorry I missed your birthday but around here we celebrate all week long.
    Happy Birthday and congratulations on your weight loss!

    Those tulips are so cute the way they head to the window.
