Either way, I’m sick. I ache, I’m congested, it stinks.
Mother’s Day was great – I got nice stone edging around my herb garden, and two raised beds made for veggie growing. Yay!!!
I got next to no knitting done but considering all the landscaping, I won’t complain. Plus I got the first ever bloom off my rose bush!
Also my peonies are doing very well so I’m excited. You know, it was only very recently that I smelled a peony for the first time since childhood, and it was amazing how the scent made me feel. It brought to mind immediately my grandmother. She had huge peony bushes (and lilacs and a huge mulberry tree!) at the hotel. I never had cause to realize how strongly peonies and grandma were connected for me. It would probably surprise her as well. And as I write, I just remembered it’s her birthday. I need to call her and let her know how she’s on my mind quite a lot. I never get to tell her with all the noise and craziness around here getting in my way. But really I need to call her anyway, especially now that grandpa is gone, to see how she is doing. Oona never got to meet grandpa, and I want to be sure my kids get to know grandma well. Oona’s growing like a weed here. Just yesterday she had some avocado and a banana cookie.
They grow too fast.
Until they hit about 3 or so – then they don’t seem to grow up fast enough.
