It's been really warm here for the last day or so. Like 20 degrees celcius! I'm not used to it (Yeah, I know it's nothing compared to what some people get. But it's nice.) The birds are chirping out my window, and the baby is chattering. I think I have a daffodil that is going to bloom today. And we sorted out that fraudulent charge on my credit card. So it's a good day. I'm taking my mom out for coffee for mothers day this afternoon. I think my basil is dying. Why is it so limp and lanky? Am I watering it too much? The pot doesn't have a drainage hole, but I did put some broken pottery pieces in the bottom to help with drainage. Don't mind the weird shape of this picture. I had to prop my camera against a shelf to get a non-blurry one, which gave it a weird angle...I tried to fix it but it just made the picture a strange shape. Anyway, two of my fellow-bridesmaids (that sounds like an oxymoron) came over last night to help me assemble these shower invitations. It took me forever to get a design I like. I particularly like the neutral front of the card with the shocking pink surprise inside. The envelopes will be pink too. I used grasscloth from a wallpaper sample book. I figured since my craft corner is pretty much as clean as it ever gets, I'd take a picture to show you. I like my little area. I will have to drastically reduce it if we have another baby while living here, because we would need to move the computer to the basement too. Great wall colours, eh? Yellow and teal. They will be painted, maybe this summer.
