I'm not sure where this blog is going to go today. I think it will be about control. There are so many things that I cannot control right now and I really, really want to. Let's start with things that I can control. Like my lawn and the growing stuff in containers on my porch.
I can also control what I put in my body and, to a certain extent, the well-being of my dog.
These things are formulaic in nature. I mix soil, seeds and sunshine and add water and up come little sprouts. I dig a hole and put a stick in the ground and five years later, there are apples forming in the early spring. I know about things that seed and root. I know about luck and temperature and Miracle Grow plant food. I know when an apple tree is dead and sadly, I pulled up my three year old Braeburn this weekend and said goodbye.

As for me, I have a wedding coming up. I am watching what I eat and making sure I get plenty of exercise and sleep. I haven't had a bronchitis flare-up for a month now, and school gets out on Friday. I am excited to think it might be some time before I get sick again! The puffiness has left my eyes and I'm sleeping better (except for the attention-starved kitty) because I'm not up all night coughing, then taking cough syrup to get to sleep. I fear addiction above all things and cough syrup with codeine could be habit-forming. So I'm careful of what I put in my body. Speaking of that, I ate like crap last night. My friends threw me a surprise bridal shower (in collusion with Mr. Grey Cavitt) and I ate chips and queso, a cheese enchilada and a gorgeous piece of cake. So this morning I was craving something with fiber and green deliciousness. Of course, this time of year that means asparagus.
