dishes and shin splints
yesterday i was in the kitchen enjoying the sunshine and all the colors when i thought of shari and grabbed the camera. it felt good to get some things done around the house, open up the windows and linger with the longer days. if you need any sort of encouragement about spring, read this. i am excited about spring, but in my heart of hearts i am a summer girl. warm concrete, drippy ice cream, buzzing bees. i love it all. even the humidity. and this i know ranks me as crazy among most. but i am ok with that. speaking of crazy, i have volunteered to "make" shirts for david and his friends who are playing in a basketball tournament in a few weeks. by make i mean freezer paper stencil numbers and logos (the shin splints) on six shirts. not too nutty, but still lots of cutting and painting on my part. i think i can run freezer paper through the printer right? anyone have any tips on this? while we are talking tips, i need some planting ones. every year i say that i am going to plant an potted herb garden for myself and every year i do not. my front porch gets pretty intense sun until about 10 or 11 am. i envision basil, rosemary, thyme, mint and maybe some flat leaf parsley. will that work? i have to tell you that i have no green in my thumb. not even a tint, but i really want to try!
i was so happy that so many of you also have secret crushes on ira. if we are revealing secret crushes, i think i need to add a new one to my list. mr. sidney poitier. so handsome. so dapper. so cool. we watched for love of ivy last night and mr. poitier was delightful to say the least.
