The red poppy, or "corn-poppy" is the unofficial official flower of Poland. I love red poppies (red is my favorite color). I think they're beautiful, and I first saw them in America, not Poland. I am looking forward to seeing fields of them, as I have been told exist, in some areas of Poland. Much like this...
... and so, as a compromise, as Martin cringes every time I try to insert some sort of "girly" background to my blog (yes, *my* blog, but still, we are "one flesh" and what not...he also "approves" every post that might be mildly controversial, so if you get offended, blame him for not censoring me enough), we have the Poppy background, and I quite like it.
Coincidentally, or perhaps not at all, but actually quite deliberately, playing around with blog backgrounds and columns and widths of columns and color palettes is a really great way to avoid doing anything you *need* to be doing to move your entire family across an entire ocean.
I am pooped. I can't move from my comfy bed, and I quit Facebook last week. What else is a girl to do?
On a completely different note... Martin is currently researching Polish castles, in good shape, for a total of 75,000 American dollars. "Hey, Martin, if I'm not a farmer, then you're not a King!"
