It feels like nothing happened last week. Like life was on hold. Things happened, but they weren't interesting things. I dusted and oiled the furniture. I cleaned a small section of carpet where a pet had an accident. I did some laundry. Yawn!!!!!!
I didn't sew, knit, crochet or needlepoint a single stitch. I didn't have time. I had chores to do.
Chores-schmores! You've heard me say this before. My house is clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy and chores almost always rate less than sewing...which explains why every so often, I have to stop everything else to do chores.This hibiscus bloomed. I think it will be the last one this year. The cooler weather has made big changes in the garden and the fall and winter flowers are getting prepared. But, the most cold sensitive plants have started to fall back. The picture on the left is how it looked, but the picture on the right is how I first saw it. That's the kitchen window. The new clear glass should be in this week or next. And, I am ready. That window is my main view of the garden.
I saw this succulent blooming on my walk last week. I've watched it change from a tight bud on a long stem to this. It's lovely.
Sad came by for some mail last week and I loved her shirt so much I asked if I could take a picture. She is such a funny kid.
