Watering Wednesday

by Libby Jennison

For so long I desired to have a green thumb.  I envied over others’ house plants that were green and thriving.  I was confused when I asked people, “How many times a month do you water?” and they would respond, “Oh, whenever I think of it.”  ?!?!?!  Uh, okay.  That doesn’t help.  But for about a year now, I’ve come up with a genius way of remembering when to water my plants:  watering wednesday.  The alliteration helps me to remember to DO it in the first place, and doing the same day every week helps me to keep track of when I last watered.  Perfect.
