It's a plant I dug up from the rocks and concrete next to our previous place - there were wild butterfly bushes growing on a patch where a new building was to be added, and I wanted to save one. I only managed to dig out one of the smallest ones, it was maybe three inches high at the time. First it lived in a pot on our balcony, then we planted it in the garden. And today I needed the ladder to cut it down - a project made slightly more adventurous by the honeysuckle vines that tried to strangle me and kept the cut-off branches in place...
The kids pleaded for a game of Quirkle, and it's amazing how much better they got at it since last time - especially Toad. I won, but not by much, and Toad was calculating the scores very, very fast.
Sewing was slow - just partially patterned Titania's underdress. Client postponed her appointment, which was okay by me - I'd much rather see her at a time when the kids aren't home.
On a less happy note : I am crossposting from Dreamwidth, and I will be deleting my LJ shortly. Not out of a particular personal fear, but things like censorship and discrimination (and worse) are a dealbreaker for me. So, follow me here if you want to keep in touch !
