Seasons in the Sun comes on the radio just as we're picking up Frida, Martin's classmate.
Liz: Happy Monday, Frida!
Liz: *laughs* I feel the same way but at least we have good music to make up for it! *giggles madly and turns up the volume*
Martin: You crack yourself up, don't you?
Liz: *still laughing* Yep! If I relied on everyone else to supply humor I would be a sad, sad puppy.
Why didn't I go walking today? What is stopping me? Fatigue, grumps, The Busy. Whatever, my excuses are wearing thin. Even if they're not conscious, and of course, they rarely are.
The rose of sharon bushes are flowering right now. I've seen several huge bushes of them around town. They're startling and magnificent and I want one. Someone told me that they're "junk" bushes, but I might have to get one anyway. In purple.
All the summer greenery is getting that chewed raggedy-edged autumn look. Plants and grasses are tipped with red and ochre and there's a chill in the air. It's not cold enough to freeze, but it feels close...the car windows have been blurred with water every morning; I suspect it won't be long until I'm scraping that stuff off.
Remember that big pink alien-looking flowering plant that I posted a picture of earlier this month? Apparently I over-watered it and today I noticed the flower was looking rather gray. When I inspected it further, it just ...pulled right out of the center of the plant. Oops. I wonder if I don't water it at all for a couple of weeks if it will be okay or if my black thumb has killed yet another growing thing. *sigh* This is why I only have succulents and philodendrons.
Work is getting busier by the minute. This is the first week that EVERYONE is back from vacation and the amount of work has tripled accordingly. It's LOOMING. I don't know how we'll keep up with it, and it's making me feel panicky. I've already talked to my boss about extra resources of some kind. I worked an hour late today and I SWORE I wouldn't do that anymore. ARGH.
La La Lovely Birthday Wishes to girlinthemoon!
