Ugh! Idiot! Go me.

My husband leaves for work at 5:10. So I generally have decaf until dawn, then go abut my day. This morning is a stunning spring morning, so at dawn, I went outside to the garden, and figured I'd cut flowers before the hordes of bees arrived.

So I went about my little bucolic fantasy in my nightgown, humming a little as I clipped what ended up being an armful of our beautiful Spanish lavender, which is blooming like mad. La la! My little country fantasy come true..la la...oh, and a bit more here...

I arranged it - wow, I needed five vases! - and put it into the house, making our home a Martha Stewart fantasyland. I felt like a wife out of a 50s country living magazine.

Then I left the house and came back. It absolutely reeks. Lavender isn't a bad smell, I love it, but I feel like I have scrubbed my nose out with an obnoxious toilet cleaner. My pregnant nose is too sensitive. Now, the flowers are on the porch, and the house still pongs.

Now, I am hiding in the garden because I can stand the smell of the house, and all of the bees are on the porch.. Genius.

    Yes, it was taken from my porch. We give up a lot to live here, (husband leaving at 5, cobras, awful internet, dodgy power, a bridge that washes out all the time) but I find it worth it. If nothing else, my kiddo will grow up hearing the jackals and wildebeest at night instead of cars.
