Come to my world and witness the way things have changed
Let's start off the week by trying something new, shall we? I was a busy boy over the weekend. There was shopping and running and landscaping and manscaping. Photos were taken. Care to check out the labors of this fruit? I'm gonna parcel them out as time permits for the slow reveal effect. It'll be like LOST only without the suspense, drama or beautiful people. This first one is the pot I planted for my front porch. It doesn't look like much now, but when it's in full bloom, it'll be gaw-jus. If I had a nickel for every time I've said that. For those of you with the inclination, there's some English ivy in there, double blooming impatiens, red dragon coleus and white scaevola. OK, since I'm getting a late start, here's another. Spring is almost come and gone, but I needed a light jacket and they were practically giving this one away at the Levi's store. Seriously, the salestwink practically threatened me to take it or else. I like the Carharrt vibe it's got goin' on. Mmmmm, I could go on and on about Carharrt....unnnh. Oh, and don't even start with me on the cheesiness of a headless shot. I'm not in the mood for your shit. So, we've covered shopping and landscaping. What else? Oh yeah, running. I've decided to run a half-marathon next month with a friend of mine up in Ann Arbor. In light of that, I ran a ten-miler yesterday morning. It was a glorious, cloudless spring day. A little nip in the air. With the aid of one of Max's Boot Camp mixes in my earbuds, ten miles just slid by. OK, how about more landscaping? This hanging basket, one of a set of twins, was a purchase, not a plant job. Of course, there was a little more shopping. I bought another pillow for my bed. I'm not a fan of mounds of pillows, but a little more Nate goes a long way and the black pillow in the center sports his signature key motif, after all. A subtle change but it makes me tingle in all the right places. You? So I guess that just about covers it.
