twice as nice

March 13
If you've forgotten what it's like to move, here's a reminder.

March 14
I chose a book off this shelf to read. Since this was several days ago, I can now tell you I read for about twenty minutes and I haven't made time to pick it back up again. Crying shame.

March 15
If there is ever a bed head contest, this might be a possible winner. I couldn't even show you the whole thing because it is that bad.
*The runner-up for today is definitely worth checking out*

Yep, that's the bathroom floor.

Saint Patrick's Day Potluck. Chocolate Orange Guinness cake shaped like a heart!

We had a mulch morning with the roses. Then I had a cherry blossom walk. So did that kid.

Sister's Birthday! She's three-oh!

March 20
Church Hill
Walking with Mom to get coffee and she noticed this little charmer.

March 21
I was trying to be like the National Geographic-ers and take a cool picture of lightening. One problem, I got impatient and this was the best I came out with. If you click on it, you can actually see the bolt. A little.

March 22
This is where we are going to run our office supply store.

That there is a car dressed like a dog!

Not that I need to make this post any longer, but I just wanted to share that my folks were/are in town. (That would be, my dad left on Monday and my mom is leaving tomorrow. Probably.) It's been refreshing and nice and nice. (Yes, I said it twice.) I felt the need to say so since there's not too much evidence here.

Also, you might have noticed the redesign. I have neither the knowledge or skills to really do this well. So consider it now a work in progress. And it probably will be for a while.

Sometimes there's a lot of wait and see

March 8
Sometimes I can't resist how adorable my cat is. She seems to be adjusting to her new home just swimmingly.

March 9
There's a mustache on the mirror and meat on the shower curtain. One of these I like better than the other.

I knew ol' Leeny's wipers were nearly done, but did they really have to give up on the highway on the way to work?

Watering plants is nerve-racking. Their lives depended on me.

I don't know about your sky, but mine was really busy.

Suddenly everything has changed

February 28
Patterson and Libby
If you look closely to your left side of the picture, you will see a man walking his dog...On his unicycle.

My apartment is slowly diminishing.

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden
My first day with the roses. Pruning time.

March 5
Laburnum Ave
At least I got to spend two hours in the truck with Abby. The kite festival was too packed.

March 6
The day of the desk requires a story.*

March 7
I was digging the little stemmed shadow. And if ever there is a time for wine, it is now.

*Fair warning, the desk story is not that exciting.
After spending approximately two hours (probably more, but I don't want to sound like I'm exaggerating) trying to get that giant desk through the little door, we gave up. We only gave up because I had to go get CPR certified. It was a frustrating morning; we wanted that desk in that room so bad that we tried every possible turn, angle, and position, but no dice. After a day of learning how to save lives, we got at it again. My arms were in a weakened state due to the aforementioned heavy lifting, so reinforcements were called. The trying started again (this time I was a spectator) and it was determined impossible without making some adjustments. Number one: the top of the desk was removed. This involved unscrewing about fifteen screws. Number two: the door jamb was removed. This involved a razor and a mini crowbar. And only after these adjustments would the desk barely slide through to the office, where it will remain for many years to come.
The End.

For more boring stories, there are some here, attached to the other photos of the course of these days.
