Despite what many think, I have interests beyond reading. I enjoy scrapbooking, bike rides, baking, people-watching and the beach. I love discovering new places, new food, and new adventures. I hate politics and most (but not all) television.
As I was preparing to move to California, I told everyone who was willing to listen that I wanted a small bit of dirt to grow things in. California seemed like the ideal place. My first apartment had just that, but sadly I did not take the opportunity. Luckily, I work for a garden obsessed library. Meet my container garden - two little strawberry plants. It will sit and grow on my little stairway. I will love it, and water it, and sing to it, and maybe even hug it a little until one day a small berry will grow. Then I will eat it and feel very proud that I have accomplished one thing I set out to do.
