Well, one night they were just four plants in a styrofoam cup, then one morning we came down to this:
Did you see it? Here is a closer look!
Pardon the flyspecks on my blind stick thingy, but
I don't dare spray it with Windex!
Uhmmmm.......no sign of the mouse since the evil day. Pumpkin still goes on alert status once in a while, but no visuals since Thursday.
We are officially DONE with harvest after Steve cut the last double crop beans Sunday evening. WOOO! Now time to finish up ground work just in case it ever decides to rain here again!
You gals over 40 will LOVE this. You younger ones take notes! According to my doctor's visit, I seem to be in stellar health except for this very annoying inability to sleep. With our little girls running around, a mom in full menopause really needs to sleep! My new doc wanted to put me on a cheap ($4.00 at Wal-Mart) but effective anit-depressant to help with sleep and general moodiness some people say I am exhibiting!
(If this person wouldn't scare the crap out of me with a blue bat and invisible mouse, I might not be so moody, just sayin'!)
Anywho.....I didn't want to go back on those darned things; I just want to SLEEP! So he prescribed the butterfly medicine, and I went to pick up the prescription, only to find out my insurance wouldn't cover it because insomnia falls under mental health, and they will not cover that. We are paying $185.00 out of pocket! That's like $6 something a pill! I should probably just go out and have one or two healthy LONG ISLAND ICED TEAS from HARRY'S CHOCOLATE SHOP, but it's too far of a drive to campus! You Boilermakers know what I am talking about! Now I AM starting to feel mental! UGH! Gotta go back and talk to my doc to see if he can code it differently since insomnia is also a very well know side effect of menopause! Oy!
Deep cleansing breath.......
counting to 12,654,789.....
Since I took my little blue butterfly pill, I suppose I should better end this and float on up to bed. Sweet dreams out there and have a great day!
