Isn’t she lovely…

I’ve been enjoying the winter cactus blooms. About five are fully opened. Three more decent sized blooms are on their way. More than half a dozen are just beginning. It’s wonderful to have a blooming plant in the house again. On the creative front, there has been drawing practice: I’m especially fond of the basket…

She waited to bloom…

I was so excited to get home and find this was just beginning… She waited until I got home to begin blooming! I’m so excited and have been watching the slow progress. She has more blooms on the way, some are just starting, so I’m hoping I get to enjoy this color for a while….

Before I go…

I wanted to write one more post as I will be gone for the next 5 days or so. I don’t have a lot to say. Just that it’s been a rough one. I managed to go for a brief walk, maybe 1 1/2 miles, doing laps in the backyard. I took the string I…

Ode to beauty pink…

Before I get things started, I just wanted to say… Hi. Welcome to our home. Have a snake. It was the original unfortunate garter snake Olive was playing with the other day.

It has bordered on the hysterical at times, with people lining up to buy generators and groceries and some claiming online that the storms would cause many deaths. Me and H? We drove 45 minutes north yesterday to go…

My ordinary day…

I saw a (derogatory) meme on FB the other day. It was basically poking fun at people who sit around all day taking pictures of themselves doing normal things that everyone else does, but posting the photos on FB as if they are something original. Not that I’m a super FB fan or anything, but I…

The clarity of fever…

I knew there was a reason I didn’t want to go out in public New Year’s Day. Flu. It’s been 3 years since I had it, so I missed the warning signs. The deep dull ear ache, the abnormal craving for sugar, the lethargy. I could have prevented it if I’d been more on my…

Not a lot going on…

The paw is still mending, so there’s not much progress to report other than it’s feeling a bit better. It’s easier to type now, which is nice. But last night I could hardly play cards it hurt so bad, but it was one more thing H and I could do together before he returned to…
