Like a Lazy Tomato…


Yesterday morning…I went outside…to find all three of my tomatoes…lying on the ground…more or less…they’re in big pots…so…essentially…they were hanging over the edges…giving the appearance of having gone to sleep for the night…but…not getting up with the sun…

Now…I knew that they would need to be staked at some point…but…they were really little when I left for the beach…only to have a growth spurt…whilst I was away…

They were emergently staked…one with a flamingo leg…well…a girl has to do what a girl has to do…permanent stakes were purchased…to be fully installed today…including a twining cord for extra support…

And…I thought…that was that…

Bertha…came strolling by…thankfully not noticing that I had defiled a flamingo…remarking that it reminded her of my life…

What…how can lazy tomatoes remind her of my life…well…the obvious comes to mind…but…thankfully…that wasn’t her intention…

No…not at all…

She quickly explained…that just like the tomatoes…I need added support during times of rapid growth…even though…growth is positive…it is still change…and it’s not the time to let my sustaining practices slide…just because I’m feeling good…

Hmmm…she’s right of course…I have had the tendency to do just that…so…this morning…I wonder…should I go…back to the store…and get some stakes for my life…or…well…maybe I could use the other flamingo leg…or…maybe some time in the contemplation chair to sort all that out…

    • Thanks, Christy…interestingly…I found I needed the advice in a real way before the end of the day. That Bertha is always ahead of the game!
