Musings: Last Saturday of March 2010

Self quite at a loss as to what to do this morning. Should she and hubby see a movie? But he’s already made an appointment for a haircut (Funny, because there really is very little hair there — to cut, self means. As usual, self digresses) and he goes to a barber who takes  an hour and a half.

Of course, self could see a movie, and here are the choices:

  • Alice in Wonderland — Er, no. It looks creepy. And self doesn’t wish to mar her memories of this delightful children’s classic.
  • The Bounty Hunter — Again, no. She wishes Gerard Butler would go back to being a Spartan.
  • Diary of a Wimpy Kid — Self never wants to watch movies that remind her of how she used to be, so likewise no.

  • Hot Tub Time Machine — This is the one Read the rest of this entry »

Even though self’s brain is fogged up (She believes she got close to three hours sleep — spread over 12 hours), she managed to pick up three 1-gallon pots of Osteospermum (What an odd name, but anyhoo) from Home Depot, her new favorite plant place. One-gallon plants were $4.45 each, what a deal! Though the drawback is that a lot of them look like they’ve been underwatered, or have roots crawling out of the bottom of the pot, so self makes sure she only gets plants that look like they haven’t been allowed to languish. Today there were quite a few serious shoppers who reached in and pulled out individual specimens and positioned them this way and that, so self didn’t feel at all conspicuous doing same.

Then self went to Laurel Street in downtown San Carlos and bought four cans of Fruitables Read the rest of this entry »
