Thursday Afternoon

Can't remember who it was that suggested my last labrette didn't heal correctly due to a reaction to the nickle in the surgical steel.. Today I started a plantain poultice --- but the effects aren't as lasting because I drink a lot of coffee and gunk it all up again. Apparently the kids have a professional day tomorrow. I had no idea. Normally I'm kind of up on these things, apparently not today. Oldest son comes home in two weeks. He's been in Japan for a year. Def miss that kid. Halted at level 11 on WoW - yes, I am THAT lame. I suck. I've made it further before but then get tired of the very similar quests.

First Official Post of Spring

Even though it has felt like spring for a long time, it is indeed here now in full swing. The lushness of the lilac and elderberry trees already blocking out the more direct view of our neighbours and the road beyond. The Asian Pear and Quince tree have already lost the majority of their blossoms, though I think the massive short blasts of wind we've had dancing through the valley has had a lot to do with that. The boys are growing so quickly. My 7 year old is reading quickly and effectively - nothing gets past him. He is at that 'alien' looking stage - elongated arms and legs, large-ish head. Baby fat gone, and the ability to see him as he will be when a teenager very apparent. I quite remember this stage with my three (now) adult children. My 6 year old was a bit slower with reading, but being born the very end of December he has always been the youngest in the class, and a wee bit behind with certain academics. This week however when doing his daily reading I notic
