Since I don’t really have anything else to write about and I was up until four in the morning last night, this post is late and I’m going to share with all you dandelion-lovers some of the pictures of the dandelion goings-on. This was my bookcase, all covered with ’em. Everyone should note that I’ve only just moved into my house and I do not actually condone this color for bookcases or furniture in general. Also, that I do know to hang pictures. I just fail at it so far.
This was the hallway. And by ‘hallway,’ we mean, ‘dining room that has yet to have dining room furniture in it.’ That path goes all the way to the front door, you just can’t tell. Because I’m standing on it. Random fact: the gods of weather in Boulder are fickle and mischievous. This is a beautiful day today, warm and sunny. Perfect for flower-picking. Yesterday? SNOWED. I kid you not. Not in a big crazy way, but in a ‘what the hell are you doing outside picking dandelions’ way. Some guy asked me if I was picking them for dandelion wine, and I have to tell you, that sounded like a mighty fine idea at that point.
SNOW. I ask you.
This is the whole kitchen nook, all dandelion-ified. There’s also dandelions on the fridge and the water heater and in glasses of water on the counter. There’s also a crown, hanging on the wall, up in the right-hand corner, there. I found out that Disney LIED to me as a child. LIED, I say. Alice of Wonderland fame, when she was making her daisy chain? She BRAIDED the daisies. I used to try to do that as a kid and get so frustrated, because mine never looked like hers. And I found out yesterday that apparently a daisy chain is made by splitting the stem and sliding another daisy through it (this also applies to dandelions). Disney, you have robbed me of a satisfying childhood full of daisy chains. We shall be having words about this.
Anyway. And then we had dinner, which I did not take pictures of, because it wasn’t that exciting. Do you really need to see pictures of salad and pasta? I thought not.
That was the magic of dandelion-ville, and why I’m taking the weekend off useful blogging. Thanks for bearing with. I’ll be up and running again tomorrow. Well, tonight, actually. Since all you people evidently go to bed in different time zones.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go sweep up a couple thousand dandelions before they turn to chaff and suffocate me in my sleep.
