Peony’s Seven Quick Takes

We did it! The Virginia Mosses moved last week and are now unpacking. Now I need a nickname for the new place. I do plan to do a garden, but not until next month…
’cause at the end of this month we’re off on a road trip to visit my parents.
Helpful hint: If you live in Virginia, DO NOT forget to renew your driver’s license. If you do, when you go to the DMV, make sure you bring your driver’s license (and your marriage license, if you changed your name when you got married) because your previous driver’s license is no longer good enough proof of your identity.
And don’t forget your cell phone, so that when your child gets sick at school you’ll find out about it right away and not when you return home to get your driver’s license and your marriage license and find the parent you listed as your emergency contact using a Band-Aid and a used envelope to leave a note on your front door.
Now that we’re back in a house with a yard, the rhubarb chronicles will begin again! Remember those four plants I was growing back in the PGMP? They came with us when we moved. One went to my pal Iris and two lived on my back deck in whiskey-barrel planters, where one died and the other two hung on but failed to thrive.
But now I’ve got a nice spot of ground for them, and they’re going in this weekend! Pie for sure next year!
I made a strawberry rhubarb pie last week.
Oh. My.
Rhubarb pie really is an amazing restorative. “Maybe things aren’t as bad as you thought.”
First Zappos purchase!

  1. Oh, your first Zappos purchase! A momentous occasion! Isn’t it the best! I love Zappos!
    I have similar Crocs!
    Last week, Old Navy was having a sale, a mystery coupon, and I had a gift card for $50, so I bought some shorts and whatnot for the kids. They in turn gave me a coupon for 20% off at Piperlime, which I never shopped before.
