Miscellaneous Monday

(how often do you see the word "miscellaneous" spelled out in its entirety? Not often enough, I say!)


1. We are awaiting the arrival of our best friends' baby. B had to be induced...so here is to hoping things go smoothly. ShankRabbit left his cell phone (a fancy schmancy new Blackberry Storm) turned up last night, so every time it made a sound, I jumped up thinking, "BABY?!"

1b. I also got one of those fancy schmancy phones (thank you, buy one get one free!). I *heart* it so far.

2. I spent a good portion of yesterday in a cleaning frenzy. Unfortunately, all of my hard work only resulted in getting two rooms done - Peanut's bedroom and the kitchen. That's what I get for wanting to scrub the floors on my hands and knees.

3. Supplies were purchased for growing our own herbs (basil, cilantro, chives, oregano). We wanted to get it all set up last night, but had to wait until Peanut was in bed. Since we had the soil, we decided to re-pot our houseplants as well. It was too dark and chilly outside for my taste, so I thought it would be a good idea to work in the kitchen. You know, on the floor I scrubbed.

I am a bright one, I am (I blame the margaritas).

Um, so now your floor is EXTRA-clean?

Good for you: I cannot keep anything alive. Especially herbs. Can I have some? :)

Isabella said...

I'm not all that great with keeping plants alive either...so I'm hoping this works out. Fingers crossed.

And, if it all works out, I'm willing to share! :)

I want to do my own herbs. I think that would be so cool. I keep thinking about it, but keep forgetting to do it. Ahhh well. I need to do some extra scrubbing today myself.

Otter Thomas said...

Good luck with the herbs. I always thought that would be a cool thing to do.

Hmm, Margaritas good. Especially if they are as potent as everything else alcohol related that Shankrabbit throws in a glass. What would be really funny is if you mixed the herbs up and when they grew in tried to put oregano in your salsa--yum.

Yeah, you know me... get her drunk enough and I'll get to... you know...

... pot plants with her.

Dirty, dirty, soil.

The Storm is an awfully nice phone. If it wasn't for the extra $30/month, I'd have one.

Ooh, the Crackberry Storm looks cool!

So excited to hear about your friend's baby!!

I try seeds every year but have absolutely no luck. If I start from established plants, however, things go great.
