Tomatoes & Love (The Weekend In Pictures)


Tomato seeds

I planted two tomato seeds I found in the bottom of the green toolbox.  I wasn’t expecting much.  They were old seeds and I pilfered the potting soil from the cold frame.  Every plant that has rested on the kitchen window sill has died. Why try?

So glad I did, marigolds. After a short (wonderful, heartwarming) trip to Clarksville on Sunday to visit a dear friend, I arrived home to find baby tomato sprouts checking out the afternoon sunlight.

Dozen Roses

On Thursday, I came home from work to find a dozen paper & jar roses and a note from my love.  It was the best surprise and all the more meaningful because not a penny was spent.  Just time and creativity and thought.  (Our Valentine’s Day was a trip to the symphony.  Presents were neither expected nor required.) Yeesh, what a guy!

Marigolds, my butt is starting to look like the seat of a chair.  I have a job that requires sitting for 8 hours and breathing for exercise.  Last week I started standing at work (sitting only for lunch), and let me tell you, there’s no going back.  I sway, I pace a little, I tap my toe— SO active (eye roll)… but it’s better than nothing.  I’ve stopped feeling like a lazy pile, I’m more focused, and my butt will hopefully start looking normal again.  ;)  Anyway, my husband (who also sits all day for school) decided we should integrate the standing workplace into our own home routine.  Bring on the His and Hers dresser-desks! I use the small dresser on the left for computer work, and the big dresser for clothes.  (Tim is vice versa.)  So far it’s a nice arrangement and our kitchen table has stopped looking like this:

Thank goodness this is done with...

How do you celebrate Valentine’s day?

Do you like standing and working?

—YES.  I’d love to use a treadmill desk at work.  I’m not sure I could write/compose while using it though.
