Flowers from my garden! The orange flower is a Mexican sunflower — it’s super tall. Which probably means I shouldn’t have planted it in the front part of the garden. But it’s happy. So happy it’s blooming.
My watermelon-eating skills were recently compared to those of a polar bear. At first, one might think this is insulting. However, after watching an online video of a polar bear eating a watermelon, the comparison is freakishly accurate. The opposable thumbs are really the only difference. Me and polar bears — we love watermelons.
Also — a little baby watermelon is growing in my back yard! It’s so cute! I just hope a polar bear doesn’t bust into my back yard and eat it. That would be unfortunate.
I’ve become a BIG fan of Skype. For some reason, I never felt the need to Skype until Carolyn moved to El Salvador. We’ve Skype’d twice now. As an added bonus, I believe Skype will help me have better posture — apparently, my chin dips below Carolyn’s computer menu bar when I slouch. I don’t want her to see a chinless Laura. I’m much better looking with a chin.
Hmmm…I wonder if chinless is a valid Scrabble word? Meredith?
