Another day, another...

Sneeze?

Actually, I've progressed well beyond the sneezing stage and full-on into the flu. I had a shot; I don't understand it. Haven't had the flu in years, but the achey bones, the clogged up head, and the general misery match right up.

Illness aside, I wanted to take the time to thank everyone who sent condolences yesterday. Your replies brought me to tears where my own thinking couldn't, and for that I am eternally grateful. Tears are hard won for me, but necessary.

I think ME is wrong...touching is not necessary for reality. The community of friends I've found in online fandom means as much to me as many everyday relationships (though if I think about it, I wouldn't want any of them to touch me...*so* not a hugger in RL).

Thanks to you all. I'm off in search of some good drugs -- perhaps I'll end up on Neptune again, Mint. And Lesley, I'm thinking hard about the toms this year. Wonder whether there's harm in trying and failing?

Well, to take the example of our boy aka Mr Try and Try again now matter what it takes, I'd say go for it. I also kill plants but I can grow toms - and there's nothing better than eating one you or the kids have just plucked from the vine. The scent alone is wonderful. The taste and the heat is even better.

Give the toms a go - after a while they pretty much take care of themselves, and they make everything smell delicious. But remind them that the garden is for everyone, not just them!

Re:
Heh. I've actually grown tomatoes before children came along... They do take some time and attention in the beginning to get right, but the kids are older now and can help. Maybe something easy like Better Boys or Early Girls...
