I had Friday off this week---what's another unpaid day off? I needed to sleep after my whirlwind fantastically fun time with Bestie and very little sleep Sunday night which made the week feel so loooooong. I dozed off several times at my desk. All caught up now!

What a gorgeous weekend I had. I'm gardening up a storm. I'm very into the urban gardening, using the fire escape, plastic and tin containers, challenging the odds of what can and can't be grown, my kitchen greenhouse, giving up my dining room table to hold all my pots, I'm in heaven. My hot pepper plants are still inside and about 2 inches, but I moved them out to the table where they get general light all day and then about 3 hours of late afternoon light full on. Forget-me-not seeds are on the fire escape in an old small kitty litter box, they supposedly can handle shade and cool weather. I have dill and oregano started indoors, still struggling with ginger, one very strong garlic plant whose stem I use like scallions, the avocado is not dead plus the usual houseplants and orchids in the bathroom. I love the smell of the wet dirt and all the green and life and potential life. So fun!

I went to what I think is my final b'day celebration last night with two dear old friends and one of their friends that I see about every year. Three of us have our birthdays one right after the other. They had a great spread laid out and we laughed and drank champagne and had an all around really fun night. I wore a very old dress of mine that I bought in about 1990, it's beautiful and unique. It has a form fitting bodice with a scoop neck and back and then a big flowing skirt, it's forest green and is jut one of those different things you buy and keep forever whether you wear it or not. I wore it my first NYE's out here but not since. It's like having vintage in my own closet.  A definite perk of getting older.

On a more pensive note, I wonder why I'm not dating. Do I not really want to? Is it where I live? Am I completely unloveable and difficult? I meet fantastic women and people but not potential "dates" or "mates" or "lovers." I think I want to. I can't figure out what my road block is. Am I in denial of the huge brick and cement wall that I've possibly erected? Am I Katy in "The Way We Were"?

Other than that I don't give a rat's ass about the other "problems" like bills and jobs. I'm so freakin happy, why? Who cares!!  Crazy post I know, but its Spring and we're supposed to go all crazy on ya!!
