Easter Cactus

I think I may have really f-ed up my arm pushing the car out of the snow over and over again. I was sore for a few days, but now that the soreness is disappearing - I still can't seem to lift my left arm over my head without whimpering.

Last night jb and I went to Costco to pick up some stuff for the store - but I got distracted by all the gardening inventory. I bought three huge bags of potting soil (hopefully enough to fill the clawfoot tub) and a four pack of plant seedlings - strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries. Right now I'm torn on where to put the tub - because it's hella heavy and will have to stay wherever I fill it. On the sidewalk I have a feeling it will get vandalized, but there is very limited space behind our house. I suppose I'm leaning towards leaving it where it is - right outside our back door. I'd love to give it a paint job before I start the garden, but that may be a little ambitious. In other gardening news - I have this plant that I inherited when my grandmother moved. It was really small and sickly looking and planted in one of those disposable foil containers for leftovers. I repotted it, and while it's grown, it's always looked kind of sickly to me. But a couple of days ago I went to water it and it had this beautiful red flower. I didn't even know she could do that! So case closed. I totally have a green thumb.

This morning jb brought me french toast with powdered sugar and fresh strawberries for my breakfast in bed (she brings me breakfast in bed every weekday morning). It was such a nice treat.

    sandra, i heard about the cleveland trip. and then jess told me about another trip you were going on for work. you never sit still for long. always going somewhere. sadly i won't be coming to pittsburgh for my break. money is always an issue when you have to drive 300 miles. but with the in mind you should plan on coming to my recital in may, on the 11th, at 5:30.

    hope you're doing well sandra.
