My birthday is on February 23. On the 23rd of each month, I share a couple of random things about myself. For the month of April, here 'tis!
I had “twins” for extra credit in science class one time.
In the seventh or eighth grade, we had the opportunity to carry around a blown-out eggshell “baby” for extra credit. It seems like we had to keep a diary of the egg’s whereabouts, and I distinctly remember having to find a “sitter” during PE class. I hadn’t thought about it in eons, but I recently recalled that I made not one, but TWO, eggshell babies for the project. I didn’t get double the credit…but they did look super sweet, sitting side-by-side. Feels kinda prophetic...although I should note that I have never shoved my actual babies into a locker.
I don’t enjoy gardening.
I love having pretty flowers around the house, but I just don’t like planting them. I don’t enjoy the bending…the weeding…the digging…it’s just.not.me. It’s one of those things I feel like I should enjoy, but I don’t. Once upon a time, I did enjoy watering, but now even that is a chore I relegate as best I can. You might guess we have mostly greenery and perennials at our house.
For the sake of the girls, though, I try to fake it here and there...I orchestrated them planting petunias last year, and they did look awfully cute in their gardening gloves. Hmmm...maybe if THEY like to garden, I just might have those pretty annuals one day!
