Julius the orange tree is molting. Julius is wintering in my bedroom, and I find leaves on the floor every day. It’s kind of depressing. But, Julius perked up last spring and I’m sure he’ll do the same this spring.
Also, I’ve had a cold. I continue to be impressed with my own snot. I’m also not entirely sure that the giant blue fuzzy I found in my handkerchief didn’t come from my head.
Since Julius and I haven’t been feeling our best, I made myself a “Laura Happy Meal.” (Julius got water for dinner.)
The main course — quinoa chickpea pilaf. (It makes good hair.)
Unfortunately, carrots with balsamic created a bit of a head wound on the plate. No worries — it was a happy head wound!
I know I feel better. And I think Julius is coming to terms with the leaf loss.
