This is Sunday Beer and Badminton (B&B), another fine and worthwhile tradition at Avdi’s. They do the Bad, I guard the Beer. I am The Maternal Unit. They do have a lot of nice craft beers here in STL. I got to meet more nice friends, plus hang out with my Gdaughter and partner.
Jess was kind enough to hang my paintings on my walls (not my forté), a couple of which were painted by her and her grandmother. Now my apartment is a mini-gallery.
Today I printed out some paperwork at Avdi’s for the DMV, so I can go get my license and register to vote, my first priority on a long list. One step at a time.
Then four of us went to Maypop (common name of Passiflora, passionflower, a native), a lovely café and garden center. They have natives, perennials, annuals, and tropicals. I was in Hort heaven. You know me, soon I was talking shop and helping set up fallen umbrellas and plants on this extremely windy pre-fall day. I bought half a dozen herbs, which are now on what passes for my patio. Gotta start somewhere. (Now all I need is food to put them on!)
Now I’ve got the patio door and window open to let fresh air in, something I really missed for years. Welp, back to work unpacking.
