Last weekend, at the wedding our house guest attended, the bride had thoughtfully put basil plants at each place setting for her guest to take as a party favor along with a recipe for pesto. (how creative is that?) Brook and Celeste, the kleptomaniacs that they are, took several. And I was the happy recipient of some of their "plunder".
The bride had tied each plant up with burlap and a brown ribbon. Enjoy! we shall!! Thank You Libby!
Today with Isabelle and Jackson I potted the basil along with a house plant that needed a more permanent home. They had a great time digging around in the dirt. After potting the plants, I put them on the porch for the afternoon to "toughen up", and forgot about the house plant.
While doing some picking up later in the day, I wandered into Isabelle's room to find this:
The house plant, on her tea party table. "How sweet" I thought. "She's taking pride in her room." "What a little decorator!"
Then I saw this:
The contents of her table. Swished onto the floor in one swoop of the hand. Decorator? maybe. House keeper? probably not.
And that was the good part of my day. Jackson slept just long enough for me to eat some lunch, and then followed me around and cried for the rest of the afternoon. Ryan had a few things he wanted me to do, and I did get those finished, but I was not near as productive as I wanted to be. I am tired, cold and grouchy. I think I am going to go soak in my tub.
