Shrubberies, the Shrew, Monty Python and the Holy Grail
This weekend, E.Shrew and I took a break from the deja vu of it all. We could have gone to New Orleans and saw the same old people behaving badly the same old way. We could have gone to the first weekend of Jazz Fest for the umpteenth time drinking and eating too much. We could have continued our good buzz at the Bourbon Pub, see my Flirty McFlirt routine, and cut up merrily with our friends. But nope. We didn't. Instead, we spent a productive weekend in the country on the farm planting Shrubs and ground cover.
E.Shrew is one hard working tool. As much as I wanted to throw in the towel and call it a day, E.Shrew compelled us to do more. Today, I can proudly wake up and see the lush environment surrounding my house where we spent the last two days planting. It makes me proud to see the work we got done. Now, I want to add some more bushes and get some hanging plants for my upper deck.
Oh... and by the way. I have finally seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I am embarrassed to admit that there are sooo many classic movies that I have never seen in my life. I can blame that on not having cable tv in my rural area until I was 17 years old. When I turned 18, it was off to college to study hard and do homework. I never had time for watching movies. I laughed my ass off at Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I couldn't help but think that the movie left me yearning for so much more. I wanted to see more silly singing and dancing at Camelot. I wanted the main characters to sock it to the French characters. I wanted the heroes to find the Holy Grail. Arrrggghhh... that movie just ended up making me yearn for more.
