All that nice rain we got last night only made the underground wild peat fires in the swamp worse. The air today was really bad– the TV stations were even running air quality alerts.
Mom had to put gas in my car <grin> and when we did that we went by JBV’s to get a garden flag for Mom’s mint garden. JBV decided she wanted to go to a local garden center and I got to go along too. I love the garden center– all those cool smells! Mom got some more mint (now she has spearmint, peppermint, Corsican, and chocolate!) and JBV got some house plants and got one for Mom called “hope plant”. They also got some wire thingies to keep the tomato plants from falling over. At least that was their excuse– I think they got them to keep Bridget from eating the tomatoes! 🙂
Despite the smoky air, I’m feeling a bit better. Enough that I actually ate part of my dinner tonight. Not as much as I normally would have had but enough so Mom isn’t as worried about me as she was.
