I’ve been hard at work lately on this next book (sound familiar?? ha).
Meanwhile, I wanted to tell you about a little project I’ve done this winter that’s brought me some joy.
I’ve been watching a lot of romcoms these last few years (for reasons) and rewatching Amélie some months ago, I became low-key obsessed with her windowsill herb garden:
How cute is that! And useful!
Inspired, I threw some seeds into some pots and started trying to grow one myself. Progress was slow at first…
I battled little gnats. I also battled my cats, who unlike Amélie’s charming cat would periodically rip my seedlings out by the root and toss them around the kitchen. When it was warm enough, I moved the herbs to the safety of the front porch:
Nowadays things seem to be coming along nicely…
Definitely not yet Amélie but it’s sorta something? A garnish or two perhaps? LOL.
What’s Helping Today, for you? Feel free to write me. Or let me know your favorite romcom, or whatever else.
p.p.s. I’ve lately been checking out and enjoying Michelle Tea’s podcast “Your Magic”.
p.p.p.s. Also! Our Flag Means Death!!! 😭
