My amazing mom and dad came over this morning to help me install a humongous mailbox and post. I don’t know what I’d do without them! Visit my dad’s blog right here for the mailbox installation tutorial and photos of the process (and of me clumsily trying to use a post hole digger). Now I can ship out incoming Father’s Day card orders without driving to the Post Office quite so often! I’m going to paint the post to match our house and get some cute numbers for the side of it. Mabel was kind enough to try it out for me. That’s her “this is the most terrifying experience I’ve ever had” face. You’d never know it though, since all her faces look pretty much the same.
Daniel has been asking me to dye my hair red ever since I dyed my tips pink. Finally after almost 2 years of telling him no, I summoned all my courage and did it (all my courage was only enough for semi-permanent dye). Then, I showed up at Daniel’s work to surprise him. He had no idea I decided to go red, and his reaction was totally worth all the towels I’ve been ruining every time I wash my hair. Luckily I like the red too!
My St John’s Wort plant is completely covered in buds. It’s just about to explode into a tangle of sunny yellow blooms. I’ve had it for 2 or 3 years, and it has only ever produced a few flowers. Early this spring I gave it some fish fertilizer. That stuff smells awful, but I’ll learn to love the stench if it makes this big of a difference in my garden!
