What do Lemons, Mutant Carrots, Honda, and Dead Sunflowers Have in Common?

Me, I guess.

Dear Friends,

I sat down the other day to write my heart out. Pen. Paper. Coffee.

Journaling, coffee, and a lemon. via @jennyonthespot
And a lemon?

I had bought a few lemons and limes before sitting down with my journal and coffee (a grocery store with a coffee shop… two birds/one stone). It was symbolic, really,  since much of my mind-emptying had to do with discontent and deciding to make lemonade.

Too bad I don’t like lemonade.

Well, I LIKE it, it just makes my stomach upset.


Speaking of produce, I pulled this little number out of my garden this week:

Um, carrots? via @jennyonthespot
I am not a good carrot grower.

I can’t even bring myself to eat it. My husband wasn’t so sure it was appropriate for me to even post a picture of it.


LOOK! I’m in a car!!!

That was video shot by the folks at Honda. I went to Santa Barbara in September. Or August. Whatever. You can read about my Honda drive experience here.

I think I wouldn’t mind making commercials for my livelihood.

Lastly, here’s a picture of our sunflowers.

They were actually quite lovely only a couple of weeks ago. Now they are sad little guys. Or big guys.

I mean, they are taller than me.

Which… actually, a lot of things are taller than me.

I recently met someone who was surprised by my charming shortness.

I think my blog header (me towering above the earth in the sky) suggests I may or may not be a giant.

I am a giant on the inside.


I think I should go.

Do you have a garden? Do you have a green thumb, or do you grow mutant carrots too?

    I do have a green thumb. So green in fact, I kill flower plants like there is no tomorrow, but I can grow the hell out of a tomato and pepper plant. Oh, and basil, yet, I have not made any pesto. Need pine nuts. I think you should shoot commercials forever. Yes, even when you are 98 and still on the spot.
