Water Hyacinth
2007-03-04, 8:40 p.m.

Day 924 Part II

Testing!! Testing!! Do not adjust your set. If youíre seeing some very funky looking flower below, this actually worked. To see the normal moaning & groaning that normally happens here, go back one page (not advised Ė itís really whiny)

This is my new favorite flower. Itís a Water Hyacinth, grown in our pond last summer. These beasties are safe up here in the tundra because theyíll never survive a winter outdoors. I understand that in the deep south they can be quite a pest. Thatís what you get for not getting a decent freeze or a hundred every winter. Rumor has it that temps got into the 70ís down in Texas Sunday. Hmmph!

If I buy the food and do all the cooking, can I borrow some couch space for a week? I can be there 2 days after you say itís cool. I promise to knock all the snow off my van before I cross the state line.

Have had a quiet Sunday, especially considering Friday & Saturday. Have so far avoided the temptation to ďdiscussĒ Friday evening. Itís been pointed out be a couple of my unofficial on-line sponsors (hi ladies!) that itís likely a manipulation tool. Iím interpreting it as an attempt to maintain a certain stress level in the house, in order to have a ready excuse to go have a drink. Never anticipated that an addiction could plan that far in advance, but it makes a certain sense.

So, my new mission is to avoid conflict and reduce the stress level in the house. That may even include being civil to Cindy under war like conditions. Better crank up the meditation studies. Lordy, I canít wait for water hyacinth weather. It would be so sweet to meditate out by the pond, with the water fall gurgling in the background. Of course, itís gurgling now, but it looks more like an ice fortress at the moment.

Soon. Only 17 days till Spring.
