“A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil; but it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and small, silly presents every so often - just to save it from drying out completely.”
Pam Brown (Australian poet, b1948)
TIME: 11:50 AM
PLACE: The front yard
HH picked up 3 cubic yards of mulch this morning for our flower beds. We last mulched about 4 years ago. That was when I first edged the areas around the front and side of the house. It is definitely time to add some more. Things always look so much nicer with a fresh layer of tree bark.
This evening I went to a trivia night with some girlfriends. These are friends I made while hanging out at the bar where I met HH. We didn’t do so well; we came in second to last place. We did win the honorary title of “Most Fun Table”...so that was something. It was the pesky sports category that did us in. I did surprise myself with my knowledge of the “Presidents” category, coming up with the answers from lord only knows where. Afterwards, we went out for a couple of beers, some girl talk, and reminiscing about the old bar days.
