I’m still finding it hard to write much, people. I apologize, but I also don’t want to whine.
So what do you get? A cute picture of Herr Meow, discovering a pumpkin at the US National Arboretum the other day. You would have thought that it were made of gold, the way he zoomed right into the creamy orange skin and almost wouldn’t let go of the jolly orb.
He’s exhausting but he is a cutie. And yes, mama succumbed to disgusting commercialism and bought him a product (red) onesie. I am a chumpess, but at least I’m a chumpess with a cute child who is easily visible from a mile away.
Also, the Crazy Hip Blog Mamas have a Photo Friday thingy going on, and this week’s theme is on "Land."
Trust me: it doesn’t get much sweeter for us city dwellers than the expanse and the beautiful lung that is the Arboretum here in DC. It’s a beautifully maintained place where you can not only learn about plants but touch them and see the dance of the seasons play out through expert gardening hands.
Oh, and it’s free.
