Today was such a better day.
For one, Ella’s hair is doing much, much better today. Apparently, it’s “because of the pig tails.” I guess in Ellaworld, pigtails equal hair happiness.
I went a little nuts at the greenhouse yesterday. I bought 32 plants. I have a problem controlling myself in these places, and I basically need to stay far far away. So, we spent a couple hours outside today.
I planted flowers, Ella blew bubbles.
I dug holes, Ella looked for worms.
I picked out the rocks, Ella made rainbows with the mister on the garden hose.
I delicately tucked my plants into their new homes, Ella stepped on flowers while I did not freak out.
We watered and trimmed and pinched and we watched butterflies. There was even a bumblebee. And the songbirds sang the most beautiful songs today. It was so very perfect and lovely.
I still have more plants to plant, but tomorrow it will rain. I guess that will give me some time to plan my Easter. And also snuggle with my sweet-sugar-muffiny-muffin, Ella.
