Growth

I spent most of the afternoon in the garden, trimming the hedge that's just over the vegetable patch - can't do that once it's full of young plants, right ? Mostly, the butterfly bush hadn't been trimmed down for two years and was as high as the house.
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 !

"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 !" I totally get it, this is a large part of why I decided I need to delete mine too.

And so glad you're here!

Yup, it really bothered me. Kinda surprised it didn't bother others more than it did!

Glad to see you here!
