I was scheduled to give blood today, but unfortunately I've been fighting off an almost-cold for the past several days. (It wants to turn into a cold, but I keep getting just enough sleep and eating just well enough that it can't quite get a full foothold and remains at 'mildly annoying sniffle' level.) I figure that even though I'm perfectly functional, there is still enough rhinovirus floating around in my system that I should probably not be donating blood at the moment.

I have rescheduled for a drive on February 2nd. Hopefully that one will go better. *crosses fingers*

(Regularly donating blood is a small and relatively easy way to make the world a better place, incidentally. If you are medically and mentally/emotionally able to do so, please look into blood drives in your area! There are never enough dependable donors.)

Kitchen table garden update!

The narcissus are, as is the way with flowers, beginning to wilt a little. One of them is also starting to get very floppy about the leaves. Alas! Still, there are some unopened buds and hopefully I will get a few more blossoms before they wither as all things do.

Meanwhile the Lazarus pepper still has that last tiny bud, which has not shriveled and fallen off. It doesn't really look like it's going to bloom, either, but what the heck.

The decapitated pepper is going to get harvested tonight. :) If I am on top of things, it will also get turned into fajita filling tonight, but that part might end up delayed until tomorrow.

It's still a little disjointed, I think, but whatever. I win. \o/
