I did some things yesterday! Yay! I mean, I laid around a lot too, but I did at least do SOMEthing.
I forgot to pack my vitamins, so I walked to CVS to get some new ones. While walking, I spotted a magnolia tree. As I walked to see it more closely, I could smell the scent of the flowers. It was amazing.
This scent is linked to memories of days at after-school care in the old house by our grade school. There was a magnolia tree there. My mom ran the after-school program – three hours of daycare after teaching a full day of school. It must’ve been exhausting for her. But it seems like memories of happy times for me, because when I smell magnolia blossoms, I remember happy days.
On my walk back to the condo, I spotted a plant indigenous to Hawaii. That is, a plant that was naturally occurring there, but is also found in other places. It’s an ancient fern-like plant. In Hawaii, it’s called a Moa plant. “Moa” means chicken. The plant can look a little bit like a cockscomb.
Anyway, I was excited to be able to recognize it. The project I’ve been working on at school has increased my gardening powers.
