Survivor Flora

Finally! A fantastic day (as I sit here trying to recover from an over-ambitious walk in the woods). The plants are playing catch-up now, but a few have poked out, like this one:

Manhood tea?

The Super 88 Market has everything!

(in case you can't read those tea box labels and don't feel like zooming, they are: "Manhood" for Ashley, "Hair Regeneration" for Josh, and "Easy-Going & Colon Clean" for me).

Self-portrait mad-skilz credit goes to Josh (and yes, that's 2 unflattering pics with me in them, in a row.)

The tank

Came home from work on Friday, and was a bit shocked to see this little eyesore sitting on the lawn, courtesy of the oil cleanup crew on our property, in preparation for the predicted heavy rains that are now upon us.

Nice, huh?

(thanks, Ashley, for shooting this).

Something Green

I'm still waiting...

... though, maybe it's my imagination, but I thought I noticed a change in the color of people's lawns between this morning and evening, with all the rain.

Tulip Immersion

It's early April and everything is still cold and brown here. It's so depressing. It's driving me to keep buying those Stop & Shop flowers - moving on to the potted tulips, this week - while I wait for the real thing, outside.

Dinner Rolls and Fish

I'm going to step myself back 2 weeks to what was quite possibly my favorite activity in San Juan: feeding fish stale (and out-of-focus, here, sorry) bread from the small pier at the hotel.

The rocks underneath formed the perfect parking spot for hundreds of the scroungers, who went nuts for old dinner rolls and English muffins.

Wax (not plastic) flowers

Silly impulse purchase at Stop & Shop for a lush-looking $4 bouquet of fuchsia wax flowers, which I discovered had shed all their blossoms by checkout time, and then littered themselves all over the kitchen, including the sink drain.

No matter. The blossoms lived quite happily, face up into several bowls of water for much longer than the bouquet itself, in this stolen Denny's carafe (it's a remnant from Josh's youth, I know...stealing is wrong).

(good thing proper sentence syntax isn't being graded)

Stuff on Saru

Bad things happen to those who fall asleep on the couch, as inspired by

Speaking of which, here's something on Lizzy:
