Its 8:15 in the morning and I’ve already been up long enough to need a second breakfast.
We were taking some people to the airport this morning. They weren’t ready when we got to them at 4:45am. On the way to the airport one realised she had forgotten her cell phone, with people’s numbers that she needed. When we had practically reached the airport the other realised she had forgotten her tickets and passport. So we dropped the first one off to stand in line and went back to retrieve everything. When we got back to the airport the first person was back outside, with her suitcase, waiting for the second person. I didn’t stick around to hear the rest of the story.
On the way home we stopped by Suzanne’s grandmother’s to collect some plants. We had planted a small flower bed hedge but before I could mulch it over Suzanne decided she wanted some more plants and her grandmother had weeded some out of her garden for us. This was several weeks ago. Since we had a ‘free’ day today I figured it would be a good time to get the flowers and plant them out. I felt bad her gran had had them for us for so long. (Though they were probably better off in her old tuperware tray with almost no soil but lots of water. The root mass was so dense I was ripping handfulls of bushes out as I could not seperate them in any other way. Now they have lots of soil but are probably root shocked and they better not need regular watering.) Anyway, to make a long paragraph short I’ve got them all planted out and mulched and I’m de-muded but Suzanne is still back in bed, despite proclaiming at 5am that ‘this is really the best time of the day’.
And so the day starts.
