Weeds

Word of the Day: Weeds


1. A plant considered undesirable, unattractive, or troublesome, especially one growing where it is not wanted, as in a garden
2. Something useless, detrimental, or worthless

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I stayed up late last night baking oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and coconut cheerio treats. Yummy! Then I saw "Grandma's Boy".....hilarious!

Then, after checking my email in the morning, I learned that the neighbors have been complaining to the city about the "tall, dry weeds" on my property. There was a fire here last year on 4th of July, so the weeds can be a fire hazard. Personally, the weeds were quite beautiful, with green buds and purple flowers, nothing dry or hazardous. The weeds weren't the spiky, eyesore-type, and I'm almost sure they were native plants that grow in abundance in my area.

Nonetheless, the weeds were all cut down today. They'll grow back tomorrow anyways.

Then, after eating and such, I saw the first few episodes of "Weeds". TV series on DVD are the best thing eva. No commercials! The stories, characters, and scripts are pretty clever. I especially love the youngest boy! He was the Nemo voice. Watching those two episodes got me addicted. And you can't get addicted to weeds.

Now at my other home, the place where I grew up, weeds took over the backyard. Pushed through the cracks, spikey, ugly things, as tall as me. No one has lived there since April, except the weeds of course.

I love it when strangers randomly blurt out "Pag-ibig ko sa iyo."
