I love everything about this: 100 things you’ll never regret doing
I feel like it captured pretty much everything I love about life: libraries, giving things to thrift stores, buying lemonade from children, and using a clothesline. *happy sigh*
Along this same vein – I sent the following text(s) to my Mandy-sister last night. We daily share our moments of enlightenment/frustration/silliness/food cravings/shoe cravings with each other via very, very long texts.
A sampling from what I sent her last night:
“You know what I can’t do? Keep my apt clean. You know what I can do? Buy cheap flowers weekly to make it a happy mess. You know what I can’t do? Have time to make pasta that doesn’t involve…gasp…canned chicken. You know what I can do? Use whole wheat pasta and peas to balance any health issues.”
(5 min later)
“My big pasta pot developed leaking holes in the bottom. I shall plant something in it instead and embrace the holes. Also I don’t have a vase…so my cheap flowers live in a blender. You know why? Because I don’t have time to make smoothies.”
(1 min later)
“You know what I can’t do? The dishes. Because I’m cooking this pasta one piece at a time with my small pot. So the chicken and peas are taking their turn draining in the sink.”
And I thusly find myself excited about the prospect of planting things in decrepit kitchen accessories. I would very much like to plant something in a toaster. My long-term goal involves a garden inside an old bathtub. One with lion feet.
