March Madness


 As we speak I have four grown men and two not-grown men in my house along with a daughter. FSU is part of March Madness, whatever that is, and as it turns out, the madness begins at home. 

There are chicken wings abounding and some random cut-up vegetables. I am heating up some of last night's black bean soup. Which, by the way, looked like this.


I'm sure it will look similar tonight. 
August already ate three spicy chicken wings and had an immediate uncomfortable feeling in his tummy. He tried to convince his mother and me that some M&M's would help settle it down. 
We were not persuaded. 

See that little tree up there at the top? That's the Norfolk Island pine that I bought years ago to use as a Christmas tree. It was tiny then and now it's too big for a pot so I've planted it outside. I have no idea if it will live but it sure wasn't going to live in a pot. Although you cannot tell from the picture, that little corner of the yard is covered in about fifteen different sorts of horrible invasive plants including poison ivy. One of my yard-goals is to clear that area and fill it with ferns and some native stuff.
Like, oh- Norfolk Island pines and maybe a transplanted palm that I bought as a house plant and which is now about half the height of the house. 
I have no idea what I'm doing but I do know that pulling and digging out the nasty stuff is quite unpleasant and honestly, I need a shower.
I did a lot of other stuff today too but none of it worth talking about. 

Jessie and Vergil and the boyos are going to spend the night as Jessie has an appointment in Thomasville in the morning and the boys were coming here anyway. So- it's a party of sorts and I need to go and attend to the goings-on. 

Y'all take care.

Love...Ms. Moon

  1. Four grown men and two not-grown men? Now I am not too hot at arithmetic but Glen + Vergil = 2 (I think). So who are the other two guys?

  4. The male world stops for March Madness, I've noticed. At least it's not cancelled this year and men can fill in their lines of who beats who. I can't remember its name. Good luck to all.

    1. Fantasy football teams? Don't ask me. I don't think Glen does that. Football doesn't excite him as much as basketball. Not that he doesn't watch any of it.

  6. Don't grown men revert to toddlers when football is on? (That soup looks just wonderful, by the way)!

    1. This was basketball and they were cheering for the local university's team. Glen and his friend Tom have had tickets to see the games for many years. It's their bonding thing.
