I know the big plant sale at our local botanical garden is this weekend ... just another distraction for Mom. So I have two ways I'm going to try to get her to pay attention to me instead of plants:
I can sit on the books.
Or I can tempt her will by floofy belly. Really, how could she choose plant books over this belly?
Also, I forgot to mention it until I saw William's comment from yesterday, but we are a good two hours away from the wildfires. It still worries us because of how bad they are, but we are not in danger. They expect to have them under control soon, though.
