It’s already 6AM but it’s still pitch black outside. We’re up really early this morning because Alan is headed off to another business meeting in Denver.
What a way to begin Monday. =) I could’ve opted not to get up because Alan has left once or twice and I just felt him kissing me and Angel goodbye. But I couldn’t let him leave without breakfast this time around. So after he had his sandwich and coffee, here I am blogging bright and early waiting for the car service to pick him up.
It was raining a lot yesterday — here’s hoping it lets up today.
My basil garden by the window is helping to aromatize my dining room. I had tried to raise three different herbs over spring but only the basil survived. (Hey, I tried..) I have two other small greens struggling but they are alive and well. I hope to cultivate the basil to grow healthy enough through the winter and onto spring next yaer. Mabe then I will be able to get a window planter that I can hang outside my window when it’s cool enough.
The cuttings I have in the office have grown healthy and are springing new parts which I will hopefully get to cut away into a separate plant before the year is out. Talk about growing!
I have no illusions I have a green thumb but it’s very fulfilling to see the plants growing. It gives me a sense of measurable accomplishment. Of course I have to try hard this time so that they don’t go the way my calamansi plant did — it whittled away and died in the common garden outside my unit for lack of watering. (Yes, I forgot.. I plead guilty.)
