Finally got a Christmas tree with my sister today. We drove to Home Depot, marched over to the trees, hoisted one up after about 15 seconds, got its trunk trimmed, and threw it into our car. Like a BOSS. While searching for rocks in the backyard to stabilize it (we don't use a tree stand, we use rocks and water in a bucket in a giant terra cotta pot) I noticed some violets shyly growing up through the cypress mulch, which made me so happy, because I thought we'd lost all the violets in the backyard when we cleared it up for the poopies. One lone Meyer lemon finally growing from our plant, and mom's excited to use it in a meal. It's good to have hope.
