Fluffed & Folded

Friday is over. The highlights were buying my pink zinnia at Loew's for $4.71, eating the last of my roasted beets for lunch and a long hot shower. Lots of ticks at work. I had to lift, carry and arrange all the Hosta in alphabetic order. They weren't. Now they are. One of the college kids rigged up a "thing" (wooden pallets, chain and cement blocks) that he pulled around the yard with the tractor to smooth out the lumps and bumps in the walking, driving areas. Creative. Another college guy offered to sweep the dirt piles left all around the greenhouse (by high school sweepers) into a dustpan. When he left for the day (5 pm) he wished me luck in surviving until 7. Slow. DEAD.

Tomorrow I am taking my camera to work. There are a few lovely things to see. A Lily of the Nile blossom in bud. I wish I could record the sound of the wind and birds coming from the Shrub & Tree Nursery. Or the feel of the wind as it changes and cooler air comes in off the ocean. I will record the sights that interest me daily. Almost like being there.

I had toast, blackberry jam and coffee for supper at 8 pm. Another pain pill before bed. Leg and arm cramps.

Isn't it amazing how the little kindnesses at work, like your coworker sweeping and wishing you a good last few hours, stay with us and make our days more civilized? I love things like that, try to do the kindnesses myself.
