flickr favs friday

I used to do this, rembember? I had pretty much forgotten about it until this mom-to-be's post reminded me all about it. So, since I have been struggling to keep my few meager vegetable plants alive, have been fairly obsessing about it, actually, I decided this would be the perfect subject to start this meme up again. So here is a mosaic of some veggie gardens my 1' x 3' plot of dirt aspires to be...



1. spring vegetable garden, 2. Vegetable Garden, 3. Vegetable Garden Overview, 4. THE vegetable garden, 5. 2006 Garden Vegetable Beds, 6. Vegetable Garden Full Grown and producing, 7. Vegetable Garden, 8. winter vegetable garden, 9. Vegetable Garden

Petra Haden

Have you seen this amazing commercial?



I love it so much that I just had to find out the artist who is singing this version of Let the Love Flow. Her name is Petra Haden. All the "instrumentals" you hear are actually aren't instruments but man made sounds (or woman made actually). She's pretty awesome.

A thumb not so black

Thanks everybody who sent me well wishes and commiserated with my migraine woes. It's nice to know we're not alone on our off days, isn't it?

Anyway, remember my little garden that I told you about? And my apprehension about killing the poor hapless plants? Well, good news...my tomato plant, this tomato plant...

is now this humongous tomato plant...

It's up to my hip, which ain't no small thing being 5'9 and my hip being pretty far off the ground. So my thumb is not quite so black, maybe just a dark shade of gray-green. The other plants are... well, it's about a 50% mortality rate around here and that's ok with me

Tomorrow, tomorrow, I luv ya, tomorrow...

Have you ever had a day when you just wish you could take a break from being you? That's me today. I woke up with a slight headache that is turning into a migraine and I think I broke my chi. Is that possible? I dunno, but it feels broken. Things are off kilter today and I'm just wishing it would hurry up and be tomorrow.

What is going on?

I am a bad blogger! Yep, you heard it, bad blogger, bad! First, I've only done 6 (6!!) blog posts in the last month. Then, I have gotten sooooo lazy that I've relied strictly on my Google reader which means I've only read 5 blogs or so for the last few months and the ones I have read I've left only a handful of comments. Terrible! And the last offense, the worst offense in my opinion, I've abandoned my camera! I haven't taken a single picture in at least 2 weeks. And today, I'm really regretting it. Today is Mother's Day and I have no pictures of our outing with our lovely mother. Not only am I a bad blogger, I'm a bad daughter! Sheesh!





And it was such a nice outing. Lunch at a local Mediterranean restaurant then a quick trip to Dogwoods a Mediterranean deli and grocery store. I guess there was a bit of a theme. My poor mom doesn't get to eat any type of "different" foods when it's just her and my dad, he's stricly a meat and potatoes kind of guy. So we had a Mediterranean day of it.


Since I didn't get any photos today, I leave you with my favorite of my mom which I've posted before but it's such cute picture I can't resist posting it again...




Happy Mother's Day!

I do not recommend this!



I just finished watching 3 hours of Grey's Anatomy...straight through. Big mistake! I should have known that I'd be ablubbering fool by the end of the first episode, forget about all the way through to the last. I mean really, I cry at everything...why did I think I could watch 3 whole episodes of Grey's?! I'm not gonna give anything away as far as story lines if someone out there hasn't watched the last 3 weeks worth yet but jeez! They really put us through the ringer emotionally. So if you're a cryer like me, do not, I repeat, do not watch more than one episode at a time!
