Also, on the pond front, my lily pads have decided to put out a flower, for the first time ever. Of course this is a different one - the old lily pads I had got ripped out with the cattails since they'd gotten badly intertwined, so I put the new plant in when I started restocking. Anyhow, here's a pic:
Oddly, it seems to have shut back up again this morning, either that or the first flower died already after just a day, and went below the water surface already, and a new bud is already there. (Or maybe same thing, with someone sneaking in and picking the flower instead, but I think that's a bit paranoid - why would they?)
Oh and also, I managed to catch up on a bit of sleep the last two nights. Bliss! Hopefully they should be done with road construction in front of the house anyhow soon. Most of the roads have been repaved - I think there's just the shoulders on the road across from us that need to be re-filled. And maybe one of the ones on the road just in front of us.
Oh, and I did finally remember to call about that tea shipment. Apparently the guy that I talked to before forgot to actually make a note to re-ship the order or something, duh, so the woman I talked to this time said she would go ahead and do that, and I should get the shipment early next week. I hope so. ^^;; Nice company, don't give you a hassle about that sorta thing, but apparently with a few ditzes on-staff. ^^;;
And for now... I hunger, so off to find some food. Have fun over the holiday weekend, everyone! (Especially the Darkfriends off havin' fun without me. :p )
