Woke up this morning at 5:43 with an urge (well you know about those middle of the night urges). I returned to my chair, covered up, tilted back, and proceeded to wish myself back to sleep. No way Jose! Not this morning so I enforced the 30 minute rule. That didn’t work either–in fact at 6 am I got up, emptied the dishwasher, fed Molly, started the coffee, and warmed up a cup from last night. I spent some time with the Deaver novel and then decided to catch up with e-mail and blogs.
The weather outside is around zero degrees with very strong winds. The birds are fighting to stay on the feeders and the truck looks like this
I swear I’m going to take this sign down. If the weather doesn’t improve I’ll take pliers to it and bend the shit out of it before I throw it in the recycling bin. I am really tired of wading snow, cleaning off the truck, and gritting my teeth everytime I get out on the road!!! ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!
On to another subject!!
After repotting the catus I thought I would work on the hanging plant in the dining room. This poor thing was root bound and two long stems that had leaves on the end and nothing in the middle.
New soil, a little Miracle Gro, and water before it went back on the hanger. Now we cross our fingers.
I snapped off the dead end, also the other end with no leaves and I hope to encourage some root growth but I usually don’t have much luck with that. There was a time when this plant reached the floor, was brought up, entrangled in the rope on the hanger and then started down to the floor again. But if you ignore it you lose it and I did.
Tomorrow is another doctor’s appointment for Jay so I spent yesterday in between Sunday chores updating his medicine list and his report for our personal physican. I also separated the medical phone # list into his and hers. One set when on the wall in the laundry room by the answering machine, a second in my truck, a third on Jay’s desk, and a fourth in the record book. It is a chore that has to be updated frequently.
Well Jay just woke up so I’ll change from slippers to boots in case I have to take him to the church parking lot to meet the Your Ride van.
Find something nice to do, laugh out loud, and I’ll be back to check on you!
