Continuing the Spring theme, I found the Sunset Western Garden Book at a used bookstore (in a totally dull plaza in middle Vancouver -- who would have thought that a huge, great bookstore is hidden there??). Anyway, I am TOTALLY into it!!! I'm voraciously reading up on plants plants plants with an interest that has not been seen since, oh, fifth grade and Greek Myths? Thanks to Maggie for telling me of the book's awesomnicity. My garden shall rule the world!!

I beat the TG16 game Cratermaze (60 levels!?) on our every-game-in-one arcade rolly pet of fun from Willy! Willy, the only name that has stuck for this device is Magical Pony. I'm sorry, I'm so so sorry. (Dr. Who voice) If you dub it something cooler, I will call it that, promise!!

What I did this FEBRUARY weekend

(note how it is FEBRUARY)

* Dug a big garden bed
* Got strawberry plants from a neighbor
* Planted strawberry plants, and various bulbs
* Put up a third hummingbird feeder to keep up with demand (!!!)
* Drove with the windows down
* to the garden center
* and bought more plants
* to plant tomorrow!
* still February!

People, the ground never froze here. And it's been a bright, sunny weekend and everyone's out doing yard care and taking walks and being cheery. I can totally live with this!!
