It’s Wednesday (actually now it’s Thursday). On Sunday this big trip begins. Big trips are good except except that once you’ve gone big it’s hard to go back down to a week or two. Just does not seem travel worthy.

So my granddaughter are coming over shortly to get ‘watering the plants’ instructions. Yes. I said plants. After years of being responsible for nary plant, animal or mineral (does the lava I snuck out from Hawaii many years ago count as a mineral?) other then my living breathing self…I have plants. I love having them. I worry about them. Too much water. Too little water. Not enough sun…well that’s how it goes with plants isn’t it?

I’m really panicked just a little tonight about this trip. Just the Greenland part. Which is a cash guzzling/REI dependent mystery at the moment. There are questions of weather  and unknown guides and are-we-tourists-or-trekkers? and how will raw whale really taste? and will there be an actual giant ice bergs all about? and can I sleep on a floor with just a mat in a sleeping bag. Thank god for good drugs.

When I return I’m just going to dig up my tiny new apartment-dwelling-size back yard and grow green things and watch every Netflix/Amazon series I’m behind on and spend NO money and eat more vegetables.

For now I’ll finish my New Belgium Heavy Melon beer and eat some dinner spinach with a nice dab,  big chunk actually, of butter.

  1. I love the wild colors of your furnishings. And I love your beautiful plants. Have fun in Greenland and elsewhere.


  2. I have only one plant inside….jade plant that I have had for many years,brought it from New Mexico,flowered once, who knew Jade plants flowered….beautiful white stars. It came from a friend, now lost..where are you Rocky? reminds me of friends I have lost track of…almost died, now kind of ok…needs a better place to be. Plants are fun to grow, you will like it. Then you will need a cat…I have some, how many would you like? Wishing you and your Granddaughter a wonderful trip. I look forward to reading about your adventures.
