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.
Bouquet of Flowers
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:
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.
