Cuddle Party

Everyone needs contact comfort sometimes.  Not everyone has ample opportunities for this in facetime.  So here is a chance for a cuddle party in cyberspace.  Virtual cuddling can help people feel better.

We have a
cuddle room that comes with fort cushions, fort frames, sheets for draping, and a weighted blanket.  It has a basket of grooming brushes, hairbrushes, and styling combs.  A bin holds textured pillows. There is a big basket of craft supplies along with art markers, coloring pages, and blank paper.  The kitchen has a popcorn machine. Labels are available to mark dietary needs, recipe ingredients, and level of spiciness. Here is the bathroom, open to everyone.  There is a lawn tent and an outdoor hot tub. Bathers should post a sign for nude or clothed activity.  Come snuggle up!

Today's Adventures

We went up to visit my parents today.

I restocked on thistle seed and also got a new thistle sock with a top and bottom shield.  At the same place I got three new planters: a big trough and two big square ones.  I plant to put peppers in the trough and cherry tomatoes in the squares.

My parents took us to Danville gardens.  I got 5 flats of assorted plants, mostly herbs, vegetables, and a few larger flowers.  They didn't have much in multipacks this year.  >_<  I also found an ironwork tower in a nice pewter finish to prop up the wild grape vine that sprouted near the white garden at the end of the driveway.  So I have an enormous amount of planting to do. Fortunately, some of the plants are in 4-inch or quart pots, so they'll last longer without being potted up.  The ones in multipacks will need to be planted sooner, along with the bareroot seedlings already waiting.

On the way home, we stopped at Dr. G's Brain Store and picked up Evolution.  I think it will be fun to play.

We went back to Ashar too.  We got the dried crawfish, honey beans, teff flour, pineapple guava and pineapple ginger juice.  The ginger definitely packs a punch.  You can see the sediment on the bottom, so shake it up.  Any time there's enough ginger to precipitate like that, it's usually good.

Harvest Market had yellow dragonfruit!  :D  I am so excited.  I really look forward to trying this.

I'm tired, but it's been a very productive day.
