  • When I bring people food and they return the dishes later, I wash the dishes, regardless of how clean they look or who the person is that had them (even my mom).   Is that normal, or am I a clean freak? 
  • I used one groomer for my dogs for years and years but she moved away, so I found another groomer.  I ended up liking the new groomer equally as much.  Then, years later, the first groomer contacted this week me to say she's coming back soon and hoping to have my business again.  There's a certain feeling of loyalty towards both ladies.  They're equally skilled and cost about the same.  Who should I use, and what should I say to the other one?
  • It's gardening season, one of my favorite times of the year.  I have next week booked off, so that I can dedicate myself to playing in the gardens and communing with the worms.  This also involves purchasing a stinkload of plants for my many gardens.  How come, for the last few days, I've gone to nurseries, walked around and left empty handed?  How come no plants are calling my name???
  • Why do I go to beer and wing night every week and never, ever have either wings or beer?


  1. So I discovered this amazing new rose that you have to check out: "Legends" - apparently, Oprah commissioned it for her Legends show several years ago and it is utterly amazing: GINORMOUS red velvet flowers. I'm not a red rose person but the rose specialist at my nursery said it is his most favorite and sold me on it....will be blogging about it soon.

  2. I looked that one up, and it'd never survive here. It's a zone 7a plant, I live in zone 2b. But I look forward to living vicariously through you - please post lots of pictures.

  3. I always wash returned dishes. I don't know if that makes us both clean freaks, or it's normal.

    I can't figure out what to fill the flower boxes on the pool deck rail with...many nursery trips without purchase.

  4. To the groomer question...Alternate. Let the first one know that you have found someone you like just as well, but would still like to support her as she comes back to the area, so in fairness to both, you'll just swap each time.
