While watering my hanging baskets, I noticed a wasp flying in and out of this birdhouse. Luckily it has no bottom.
When turned over, this is what we found:
Yes, I ignored all danger and got within inches to take this photo. Few things are too dangerous to share with my dedicated readers. :)
Look at this weed.
I would buy this if I saw it in a Breck's catalog. And it's just a weed! I left it because I couldn't bear to dig it out. Does anyone know what it is?
I had a good day at work today. It was that kind of busy where you look up and the day is over and everything went just as it should. On days like that I think I want to work forever.
There was one sad moment. I was on the phone long distance to a lady who was booking a festive 50th anniversary for her parents. When I got off the phone I started getting everything ready to fax to her: contracts (food and rooms) as well as menus, banquet brochures, etc.
Before I could finish, a group of people were at the desk and wanted to see me.
It was an elderly father and his two daughters. They were there to book a memorial luncheon for their mother. The luncheon was large--the exact same number as the 50th wedding anniversary.
I was saddened for a moment as I realized that within 30 minutes I was working with one daughter who was rejoicing in the planning of her parents 50th while two other daughters now sat before me deeply bereaved to have lost their mother.
As they left I shook the father's hand and expressed my condolences. It was all I could do to hold back the tears.
I find it so unfortunate that a family's loss helps our bottom line.
