Can you read what this says?? It is a little "ad" for an airline stewardess in the National Air and Space Museum. It says, "Stewardess...is your smile friendly and sincere...make up neat and natural...shoes repaired and shined?" EEK!! I couldn't resist taking a pic of myself so obviously not meeting up to those standards! But, back in the day...I sure did wish I was one of those girls!

Oh, Sweet Basil!
Such high hopes
I fear it was all dazzle
for now we are dopes
because our basil
is about to fazzle...or fizzle!
**We were excited to plant a few little gardeny things about a week after we moved in. Here you see the picture of our little basil plant. But, I fear it may not make it through the summer. Last week our temps rose to 104 and little basil about cooked in the ground. I'm hoping that I'll bring him back around.
DH and I are becoming true tree huggers! We learned a trick for watering the garden in an eco-friendly, drought condition way. This trick was suggested in the newspaper. When you are going to take a shower, as you wait for the water temp to become just what you like, put a bucket in the shower, under the flowing water. Leave the bucket there until the desired temp is reached, move the bucket out of the shower, and take your shower. Then, use that water to give your plants a drink. How funny is that??!! Well, we did it this morning and hand plenty of water from our two showers to water little basil and his friends. DH couldn't believe that he would be so green!! :)
