Semi-annual meeting with Melisandre, fiery goddess who wields a wicked  liquid nitrogen sprayer that she uses to remove ill grown things on my skin.  I got off lucky this time , only 9 burned out areas  to take care of.    How can something so cold burn so badly?
We then  picked up some plants  for the garden, 2 types of basil, an okra and a cucumber.  We were looking for sage plants because both of my sage plants succumbed to the winter weather and I haven't been able to find replacements yet.  I'd had those plants for 7 or 8 years and use them for cooking all the time.
Wrote the above on Monday, it's now Wednesday, had to go get my B-12 shot today which means I'll have a bit more zip for a while.  While I was doing that Mac tracked down some Sage plants for me, they look great.
He also mailed a package to our daughter in Japan, some goodies she was needing.  Holy, moly, I think we made a down payment on buying Japan, boy was that expensive.
Mac set some of my bears outside so they could enjoy the spring air this morning, even let one go fishing, you know how bears like to fish.  Well Miss Kitty came out and we didn't precisely see her doing it, but  we found her  in the middle of the deck with a very smug look on her face and the bear who had been fishing in the pool was then floating in the pool.
I went swimming yesterday for the first time this year, very late, often I'm in there by April.  The poor pool is full of Jasmine and Honeysuckle debris.  The lattice around the pool is covered with them and the smell is a delight, the mess they make not so much.
Off to see the above stairs cat (also known as Yohji--our daughter's cat), he won't come downstairs so I spend some time with him every afternoon.


  1. Nice to see the bears enjoying the sunshine:) Hope the one who went swimming survived the experience!

  2. I hope the bear could swim!
    Swimming with the scent of jasmine and honeysuckle sounds wonderful but I imagine the fallen leaves and flowers are a pain.


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
