This week, she turned 50, so I thought we should do something special. I wanted to buy her a season pass to the theater, but the passes don't go on sale until May, so I bought her a huge tropical bouquet, took her out to lunch, then went to the mall with her.

    Oops, a few days late posting this!

    Spring is definitely on its way!! The seeds I planted indoors are all sprouting and growing quickly, reminding me of how soon the day will come when I can put them outside!! Growing in my windowsill right now: cotton, zucchini, cilantro, basil, oregano, peppers (mystery), cherry tomatoes, plum tomatoes, beefsteak tomatoes, scallions, and pickling cucumbers.
