Heading in to another weekend with blurry vision, making crafting and reading virtually impossible, I hit up the local nursery on Friday’s drive home. I could easily spend an entire paycheck at this place, so it was probably good that I only had 30 minutes until closing. I managed to get out of there with just a few lantanas and a bag of micro-brewed garden soil. The other plants on the back porch, also needing more-permanent homes, from a previous trip to the nursery, made it a little easier to curb my spending.
Unrelated to any effort on my part – the loquat tree that we inherited with the house is starting to produce fruit, but most of them are too high up for us to reach. I’m not sure what one really does with a loquat fruit, anyway, but wikipedia says I can make pies with them, so they may be worth harvesting after all.
Here’s hoping this time next week I’ll be off all those blurred-vision-meds and can get back sewing the binding on a long overdue quilt and finally finish the Margaret Atwood book I’ve been reading for the past 4 weeks.
