coming soon ...

As many (however 'many' read this, who knows!) of you know, I work at a newspaper. Because I'm not a reporter, my name rarely appears in the paper but my work appears nearly every day in the form of headlines, photo captions, story choice, page layouts, etc. But this coming week I am writing an article about ... knitting! For the technology section! I am so very excited. I will take a picture and post it here after Monday, when it's due to be published.

And on a completely different subject ... there is this beautiful bush around the corner from my apartment building that I have been trying to figure out for the longest time. Every time I walk Gracie past it, three times a day, I think "hmm what is that bush?" It had green waxy leaves and, in spring, tons of beautiful-smelling white blooms. I decided arbitrarily that it was a magnolia but nope, Google Images proved me wrong. It was killing me! Tonight, I log into Facebook. They sell $1 "gifts" - today's is a camellia. I hadn't tried this flower name on Google before ... I type it in and what do I find but this. Success! That is the bush around the corner. I'm so happy I solved my little mystery.


  1. Congrats on your article! How exciting! =D Can't wait to read it.

  2. I love camellias! First time I "bumped into" one was in Greenville when I had to go downtown to get some video tapes converted to DVDs. The vendor I went to had a large bush of them. Man they smell awesome, don't they??
