A few tiny things.

My basil is growing up. I'm so proud of it. I watch it change a little more every day, and my chest swells every time I walk in the door and see that it's not dead yet. I imagine this is what parenting feels like, only quieter. And with less poop involved.

Anyway, the following story happened a few months ago, but I forgot about it. And, it's been a while since I've shared a "Cory's take on interior design" story. So, here's a little gem, from me to you.

Just before he left for his mission, Cory's younger brother, Brendon, purchased a new watch. The watch came wrapped around a fancy little pillow that fits into the palm of your hand.

Brendon gave this little pillow to Cory. Maybe because it said "Denmark" on it. (Cory served his mission in the Netherlands. (Update 9/23/11: Cory has since informed me that Denmark and the Netherlands are in no way related. My bad.) Maybe because its just the type of random thing that would appeal to Cory.

I honestly don't know.

Regardless, Cory accepted his gift.

I can only imagine the thought process that transpired as he tried to find the perfect place for his new little friend.

 A few days later I discovered this:

Look closely. It's there. Tucked ever so gently between the yellow doily pillow, and the orange leafy pillow.

I guess he figured every other pillow we own is here, so why should this one be treated any differently?

Why indeed.

P.S. I left it there. It makes me smile every time I see it.

Maybe you should let him have more say in the decorating. He seems to have a knack for it.

that's funny! And that vintage phone on the night stand?? to die for! Um, can you teach me how to grow an herb garden? I think it looked so easy and I totally got my butt kicked by those stupid seeds.

your basil looks great too!

haha--I wouldn't have a problem with Cory having more say in the decorating, but he's never interested when I ask. He just likes to sneak it in!

And, I'm far from an herb expert. My chive seeds were duds. But luckily these are growing. What I've learned so far: Water them then leave them alone...that is all.
