Wildflowers for Sale

Do you ever pay money for something only to realize later that you could've gotten it for free--and much more easily? Well today I was looking out my window at some flowers growing in the jungle and I thought, "those are pretty flowers." Then I thought... "PRETTY ON MY TABLE!!" and realized I'd just bought a whole bouquet of them from Rubia's on Tuesday!!! Arg!! They're growing crazily right at the top of our driveway, I hardly even have to leave the house to pick them, and here I paid $2 for a bunch of them AND had to get in my car and drive to get them!

Silly, silly me.

I have to brag about my new station. It's "Nanci Griffith Radio" but I realized today that you can add other music you'd like that particular station to play, so I added Jeffrey Foucault and Peter Mulvey and now I have created THE BEST PANDORA STATION IN THE UNIVERSE. I get shivers just thinking about all the good songs this station will play!!

Speaking of playing: Kim & Annie tonight at Village Coffee House 8-10. That's not an exciting event in and of itself, but what's ridiculously exciting is that JOANNIE is going to be there!!!!! HOORAY!!!! She doesn't know it yet, but we're going to invite her over for coffee at our house tomorrow. We have this vanilla biscotti coffee that Martin just opened this morning and it was so strong and yummy smelling that it woke me up. And funnily enough, it's Folgers, so it was just like in their commercials where I woke up sniffing the air and then was happy to get out of bed to go downstairs and smell it some more. Yum.

Today for lunch I packed some sandwiches and fruit and drove down to Crawfordsville to have lunch in the arboretum with Martino! It was very nice. He told me all about the trees. I wonder if I would find Wabash nearly as intriguing if I weren't married to someone who knew so much about it? Probably not.

I'm totally going to play "Universal Soldier" tonight and see what kind of response I get... from Joannie. Haha!

The other day Martin told me I'm the biggest pot smoker who's never smoked pot. I guess he's kind of right, although I'd never thought of myself that way.

I am so in love with this pandora station. It makes me just want to sit here in front of the computer and listen to it forever.

Did you play Universal Solider while I was there? I was all ready to protest the protest song! Hahahahahahaha!
