A sign of a good day? [Apr. 3rd, 2017|10:31 am]

I just received notice that my medical flex account claim was received. I had to email it on Saturday, a day after the due date, as the fax failed on Friday several times. They don't say whether the claim was accepted, but they don't say, "too late, the money is OURS."

So, some hope that that will sort out.

Unlike my phone, which the dog has chewed on. The screen is cracked but it seems all works, except for a crack across the lens of the "selfie" camera. (And even that works fairly well.) Given how rarely i use that camera, i may be able to get some more use out of it.

Then there was the rosemary i bought yesterday. I read the tag, after it was planted, and it says "Not for Human or Animal consumption. " Here's a larger plant with the same warning (under the image). Best i can guess is they pesticide-ed it to death in the nursery? Surely that would go away after, i dunno, a year? I'm rather irritated. (Lowes says one year. Might return it and get the much smaller plant, but it might not be as big as this one in one year. Hrmph.)

I discovered the phone and the rosemary warning shortly before water boiled over on the stove and sent the fire alarm off for a rather long bit yesterday evening. Loud sounds stress was an unwelcome addition.

Eventually, we got things settled and had a lovely dinner.

It was a bit of a roller coaster weekend.

Distress over the fax failures and my procrastination that had me submitting the medical/vision expenses at the last moment.

Lovely walk in the woods with my sister and our dogs.

Some elephants on Saturday.

Overheated the greenhouse and melted my lettuce. I feel discouragement about starting plants from seed.

Discovery of what looks to be a patch of strawberries, which i marked off with stones and mulched with wood chips.

Compost won't get hot.

Corn has sprouted! Potatoes are up!

Three different tick bites, two from tiny ticks.

Dog hair is everywhere. The shedding is astounding.

I wouldn't worry too much about that rosemary warning -- and once it starts growing, you can just trim off whatever part was exposed in the first place.

They used to grow amazing rosemary hedges outside of my grocery in Austin, I always plucked and used what I needed. And then laughed inside when I saw people paying $3.99 for a little thing of fresh rosemary.

I wish to high heaven rosemary could grow wild here. I hate buying it anew every year. But when the ground freezes solid half a meter down and the neighborhood is a mess of persistent hungry herbivores, well, phoo.
