Whole Lotta Lei

The pink jasmine outside our kitchen window is in its annual Spring frenzy of fragrant white stars, and this morning I finally got off my hinder and picked some blossoms to string leis. Occasion? None, really...although some friends are coming over to go out to the local Indian Restaurant with us tonight, and since it's probably our last "date" with them for awhile I guess that's as good an excuse as any to "put on the dog".
Eric the Red (aka "The Large") believes that ladders are built for two. He also enjoys crunchy baskets as a way of adding extra fiber to his diet.
The finished product: a box of four long, smelly white leis sitting in the fridge. I feel so it's back to packing...


  1. I feel just like I was there and can almost smell the jasmine blossoms... MMMmmm! Thanks Neb :)

  2. You're welcome!

    While I was sitting stringing the flowers my hubby walked in, wrinkled his nose and said, "Did you just clean the cat boxes or something?"

    My blank stare lasted a few seconds until it dawned on me that I had once made the mistake of buying *scented* litter (ugh). I guess it permanently scarred him.

    "I'm stringing jasmine, silly." Boys...
