This and That

It's 5:30 AM and I've given up on trying to get back to sleep.  I'm hoping this trend of waking up at 4 in the morning is going to end soon.  It's like my mind is going a mile a minute and I can't fall back asleep.  So here I am and this is what I've been up to lately...

Earth Day on Bayou St. John.  I got my tiny activist on and signed petitions for wetlands and water management, purchased marsh grass, donated money for the restoration of the Bayou Bienvenu Triangle, ate well, listened to music, and met Mother Earth.

I got my hair cut like this and because it is so fine and stick straight, it looks just like this but shorter.  Sis #2 also had her hair cut like this, but because her hair is curly, well she sort of looks like we went back to the 80s and she is not pleased.

Went to French Quarter Fest and hung out at my Katrina refuge.

Hung out with cats who were also hanging out.

 Had lunch.

 Sanded and primed this dresser that is going to eventually be peacock blue.

Tended my garden.  Yay strawberry!

Did the bridesmaid's brunch for my son's wedding at The Court of Two Sisters.  Get the grits and grillades and avoid the hollandaise sauce, (way too much salt).

And last but not least, I dug out this little deserted island thing all by myself.  I've got ice cream flavored banana trees, black coral elephant's ear, orange canna lilies, some ugly red and yellow lilies that J. insisted he must have, and to the right a tiny pineapple plant that is supposed to get huge.  Now all I need is some sort of border and some sort of sculpture.  Actually I was thinking a volleyball with a bloody hand print.  I think it would be nice if Wilson had a nice place to rest.  Yeah I'm nuts.  Any other suggestions that would be more sane?


  1. Jude, I'm sorry that you can't sleep because you should be tired after all of these wonderful activities!

  2. I am rubbish at gardening. Mind you, I can only do it on the balcony. Even then, I seem to be killing all my plants. What's an ice cream flavored banana tree?
