I had another busy day at work until 3.30 and then it got really quiet and not much happened after that-- well, I had a repeat customer with a dead lavender plant. This is the third time we have tried to save a lavender plant for this guy's "sweetheart". I'm wondering if she really likes the plants? One never knows. Perhaps the "sweetheart" is imaginary? These are the kinds of things I think about on slow days at work.
There was a customer yesterday that dragged a large pot and the plant I had in it out of my front table display (she was buying them). In doing the dragging she also knocked over three wire deer, leaving them in a pile of legs and bodies with little concern. I know it is good to have customers like the display so much that they want to buy it, BUT she ruined it and I had to rethink and rebuild. It's never as good the second time. And it's the front table. Other than that--the greenhouse is looking very nice. Ready for a busy weekend, I hope. I hope everything is gone by Sunday when I come to work.
Tomorrow is my day off. Pretty excited about it. I have hardly any household chores other than paying the bills. The dog will want a walk. I should dig my own lavender plants out of the garden (unless it's too late and they froze to death). I have books to read and a 12x20 to work on. The only fly in this happy Saturday is making something for dinner. It was so much easier when I ate pasta.
There was something I had wanted to tell you but I can't seem to remember what it was. Oh, yes. Only 854 more pages and this blog will hit 100,000 pages read. Pretty excited.
