Vacation Hell Week Day # 2

Well, it's Vacation Hell Week Day # 2 and BF is still alive. Darn the luck.

Before I start, I need to know something. What is it about men and weed poisoning? Is it just BF or is there an army of men out there who are chomping at the bit to don their gloves, face mask and destroy every living, growing thing that sprouts up on God's green earth?

Now, BF has strict instructions on what he can and can't spray, but what is it about men and women that there is no communication thingee going on? I talk, he listens, agrees, and still does the same damn thing he was ordered not to do.

So, I'm out there (still hobbling, but better) and I notice that my baby's breath hasn't come up this year. And...then...I happen to notice my beautiful patch of oregano isn't coming up either. Both sprout up year after year and, then...I remember....BF's obsession with the weed killer.
He thinks he has pretty good excuses, too.
"You want to cut the grass? I don't."
"But, I showed you where NOT to spray."
"But, I didn't spray there!"
"So why aren't they coming up?"
"I don't know. But, I didn't spray there!"
Yeah, right, like they decided to declare this year was the year they wanted to sleep a little longer.

Speaking of plants, I got a really nice gift in the mail today. It was from one of my authors who is going out on tour next month named Karen Magill. Now, Karen lives in Vancouver and I live in the States, so it's a wonder her little present to me today made it and I so want to find the camera to take a picture of it, but for now, I'll find one on the Internet. Hope I can anyway. Hold on, I'll be right back.
Okay, this is close, but mine is much prettier!

Isn't it the cutest thing? It's called a Bamboo Good Luck Plant. I've heard of bamboo but didn't realize you could actually have one in the house and Karen must have realized how much I love plants or I needed a bit of good luck!
Wasn't that so nice of her? Thank you, Karen!
Well, I'll let you know tomorrow if BF is still alive and, btw, I'll have a guest blogger tomorrow!
Her name is Sandy Lender and she's on a virtual book tour for her book, Choices Meant for Gods. Ought to be a great interview so y'all come back now, you hear? ;o)


  1. Hi, Dorothy!
    I'm waiting until I get into a new place to venture into the bamboo realm, but I've been dyin' to get one of these guys. I also want a bonsai tree some day.

    In the mean time, I'm pleased to announce my significant other won't be spending any more vacations in my space. He's moving out today. I have mixed feelings on it because he's taking his cat. I'll miss her...

    I'm watching for our interview and the flood of interested inquirers sure to follow along!

  2. What a wonderful gift - I'm so glad - you deserve it.

    Well, men come in all flavors and mine, thank goodness, is a real gem. We are definitely soul mates.

    I wish I could give you back yours.

  3. I am glad it is so pretty! It came from FTD in the States by Fed Ex that is why you got it in such good shape. It is so great, I am so glad you like it.
