Well, the first day of summer vacation is being draaaaawwwwwnnnnn out to its inevitable closure with a bit of help from a) friends, and b) wine. So. Updates. Some of the plants in the last post are still alive. Ha. And some are not. The cream was sour when I poured it in my coffee this morning but my SWEET children went to the store for fresh cream. How nice is that. And friends have been here until the wee hours. I suppose it's bad policy to post when one's had wine. oh well. here's to summer!
