Three things happened last weekend:
1. We drove about an hour out of town to check out a possible wedding venue. Everything was going well until we headed home and Terry got lost without realizing he was lost. "Why didn't you tell me we were going the wrong way?!" he asked me. I thought the Welcome to Pennsylvania sign was a clear indication we were not heading in the right direction, but I was wrong. Apparently when he said "Right now, we're going towards Pennsylvania" and I affirmed "Yes, we are headed towards Pennsylvania" he took that mean we were supposed to be going towards Pennsylvania. But we don't live in Pennsylvania so I'm not sure how one would derive returning to our home in Maryland via Pennsylvania. Unless of course we were returning home from maybe Vermont?
2. I attempted to eat more veggies and was successful! I really do enjoy vegetables, but I'm a fan of summer vegetables. Fresh tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, zucchini, that type of thing. So in the winter I struggle. The night after our trip to Pennsylvania I prepared roasted broccoli and eggplant with a tomato and mozzarella salad.
3. I re-potted by button fern. The poor gal was all but packing up and moving out of her old pot all on her own, but before I could do anything I needed to find a bigger pot for her to relocate to. Flower pots and planters are one thing I'm always on the hunt for at thrift stores. They're so unbelievably expensive at nurseries and garden centers. I recently purchased a pot from the Goodwill that still had the price tag on it - $44.99. I paid $2.96. And now it's housing my begonia bulbs. Larger pots can be harder to find so I'm always keeping my eyes peeled for a comparable alternative. This weekend I didn't find any large pots, but I did find a small trash can...
So when life gives you a trash can - make a flower pot!
