Green with Envy

Summer left Monday morning. New PDs arrive Friday afternoon. Please forgive me if posting is a little slow this week, we're all trying to catch up on everything we've been too busy to get around to in the past 2 months. Which if you're a procrastinator like myself includes writing transition reports, putting together the house binder, writing the monthly update (oops...), editing Manna's foundational principles, drafting quarterly reports, planning my segment of the new PDs cultural week in Quito, and working with everyone else in coordinating all the new programs at the library during July (tango lessons! theater! electricity class! guitar!).

That said, all I can really concentrate on is our neighbor's garden. I mean, just LOOK at it! It's beautiful! It's filled with life! And color!

Ours is filled with dust and dead things. Please, PLEASE let one of the new PDs have a decent green thumb. Or else I'm going to have to call my parents and beg them to come back to fix our sad little garden.

I blame the state of our garden for why I can't get motivated to work. That's a valid excuse, right Dad?
