This weekend was supposed to be full of house cleaning and eating at a wonderful tea house and then wandering a beautiful greenhouse with it's own arboretum and me using my gift card on some hanging pots and a princess philodendron. None of that is happening because I am horribly ill. Like clockwork my throat… Continue reading State of the plants
Lately a theme of upgrades permeates my life. My flight to Miami this week was upgraded to first class on a large plane. I had a seat that nearly lay completely flat. After two glasses of merlot with dinner I laid down and slept. It was the best beginning to a business trip ever. I… Continue reading Upgrades
I took these photos nearly a month ago and the status has changed a bit. Also, I excluded some photos because I should just take new ones. The above pilea glauca aquamarine has been a total pain for me. It's constantly dying and I've tried everything I can think of to keep it going, but… Continue reading Plants saying hi

I'm hoping I'll be better by the time I have work tomorrow. I don't want to be in recovery mode and exhausted at work. Saturday I… Continue reading It’s…Monday?
Work, personified this week: Wesley whimpering = me. Also, why is dealing with clients akin to that scared feeling of having a tooth pulled in the frightening manner of putting a string around it and waiting in anxiety for someone across the room to slam the door? Thursday: Knock Knock linen top, YY skirt, Frye… Continue reading This is for posterity
Today is the first day of spring. We are expecting 5-8 inches of snow. We are not amused here and ready for this winter business to go away. This was Monday's outfit with the new white shirt I bought. It got dirty, as expected, but I was right in how sturdy the material is and… Continue reading Someone call Spring, it forgot it’s due date.
