Hangin' Round the Ceiling Half the Time

As promised, a dahlia and one of my glads. It was supposed to be a mix of colors for the gladiolas, but so far the mix is just yellow and white.

So, today is Stinky and her boyfriend's one month anniversary. How 16 years old is it to celebrate a one month anniversary? It is pretty cute, because he is such a nice kid and he is just as crazy about her as she is about him. There's nothing wrong with being a total dork about someone. In fact, I wish that all my friends could find someone they could be shamelessly dorky with. I'm just a hopeless romantic that way...Or maybe I'm just hopeless.

Here is a photo of my tomato plants getting ready to take over the world. They're almost as tall as I am.

So, my first day back to work after my long birthday weekend was crazy busy. I had this training thing that took all morning and was REALLY boring. I didn't have time to take my car in, but I'm going to leave it at the muffler shop tomorrow morning and walk to work from there.

Tonight Dr. Lyd and her hubby stopped by to finally check out my new place. Her hubby is an engineer and was very helpful. They really liked my place and were nice enough not to notice any of the flaws...Even when I pointed them out to them. My friend K. stopped by as well to drop off some books and movies she borrowed and to pick up some more of each. I love sharing.

Now, it's late and I'm going to retreat to my lair to read myself to sleep. Depending on how much the estimate is on my car, I might spend my lunch break tomorrow buying books with the gift certificate to Prairie Lights I got for my birthday. There. That ought to take the edge off. Night night.

Happy 1-month anniversary to Stinky and her man!

Someday I'll find that special someone who will encourage me to wave my dork flag. :)

Pamela said...

wow, you've done great things with your yard. green thumb you have. do you have flowers on the tomatoes yet?

laura b. said...

Your garden looks beautiful!

I am a sucker for goofy romance as well...good for Stinky and her guy :-)

I was glad to see that your car ended up being a relatively easy fix. Yay!

You are not alone in the hopelessly romantic line! I am too... and I am total dork as well. :-) Yay for Stinky and her fella.

I love your yard... wish mine was that far along. So glad you post those pics.

Ugh... boring training. But, job security. What I hate are the team building exercises.

Glad you cleared up that car problem. Been there. No fun.

Have a great rest.

Ah, young love is so cute. I remember 1 month anniversaries!

Churlita said...

I know you will...And he'll be the luckiest guy around.

Pamela, not only flowers, but tomatoes on the tomatoes.

LauraB., Thank you. So was I. So was I.

Ananda, Yeah, let's hear it for dorky romance. ha ha.

Manuel, You and your wife are so damn cute, that I wouldn't be surprised if you two still celebrated monthly anniversaries.

You got the BEST Iowa flower garden! I mean, if I was doing location scouting and I drove past your garden and saw your yard, I'd make my driver (because for SURE, I'd have a driver) pull over, etc etc. Et cetera.
