    Mystery Flower

    Woke up early to quiet. The children were asleep, Keebler was in his noctournal coma, and the world was at peace. Add to that the fact that I was well rested, and the day started out beautifully at 8am.

    Then I decided that I had the rare opportunity to lounge around in bed enjoying the blessed silence for a while. I work hard, I deserve it, right?

    So I woke up at 11am to the doorbell ringing. It's my friend IA with some baskets for us. I threw on my clothes, and ran out to greet her. After a short tour of the yarden and a few minutes chatting, she had to head on her way, and we had to sort some baskets. *grin*

    We have 4 more new melons, and the mystery plant is flowering. A strange parchment-like flower with widely seperated petals. We have alsop discovered that where we planted the spaghetti squash and the loofa is growing an orange-green sort of squash that looks suspiciously similar to a buttercup (only buttercups are supposed to be either orange (red) or dark green according to Google, not both. I can't wait to find out what it is. *chuckle* When I borrow the digital camera, I'll ju8st have to take pictures of those as well and take the images in to the MSU horticultural department for identification.

    Strangely I have had a good many people offer to loan me their digital cameras, but nobody has a devil ducky to spare. *chuckle* I haven't gotten to arranging a borrow yet, but I will likely do that in the next couple of days.

    Some friends came and picked up the kanji today, and tomorrow someone is coming to pick up the craft supplies. The livingroom is still a huge mess, mother took the girls to dinner and a game of bowling (free coupons are your friend) as a surprise for getting their room clean, But she statyed to visit fo a couple of hours too, so we didn't get as much done as we could have (or had planned on).

    Later in the evening, we picked up some wood for the raised bed we'll be building.
