The next time I buy a flower basket (which will be next May at the Lynden High School Plant Sale)...please...PLEASE, remind me NOT to buy one that's mostly petunias.
Typically, baskets on my porch don't last much past July.
Die in July, it's called at our house.
I forget to water for a couple of days, and before you know it, the end is near.
I am determined to get past July.
I will water that stupid thing every day. And I will pluck off the dead blossoms like a mother monkey grooming her baby:
In other news...
Shelby has been getting letters from colleges all over the country for the last few months...about javelin. It's pretty cool...she loves it. Just letters like they send out to tons of other kids, I'm sure...but it makes her happy. And it's good for her confidence.
And it's nice to be wanted. :)
Everywhere from little private schools I'd never heard of...to Columbia, Harvard & Cornell...
Cal Poly, Oregon State...it's fun to see where they come from.
Then West Point sent a letter. Then they called. Yesterday a packet came in the mail.
Gulp...whole new meaning to 'we want you!'
All good stuff. I'm happy she's happy. :)
Enjoy your Wednesday...
Sorry I didn't send that thing in the mail Luke...I will today. :)
Or maybe I'll hold it hostage until you text me more. Hmmmm.....
