Sunshine is Calling

The wait is over

And it was worth it.

When We Wait

This is the only orchid I own.  I bought it at Home Depot about a year ago for $9.  Mostly because of its miniature size and striking magenta color.

One by one, the petals fell until there was nothing but tentacles and waxy leaves.  I didn’t know what to do.  I kept it moist, left it on my windowsill, and waited.

And then a crazy thing happened. Tiny green buds began to appear.  Now, almost a year later it’s almost ready to burst.

So is my heart.

Injured Hope

It fell off the top of my lockers. I am not optimistic about its recovery, but one must never give up on hope. Without it, we have no chance.

A clean break.

Calls for silver glitter glue.

Glitter captures light and shares it with the world.

The crack stays.

“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”

“Don’t Believe the Hype”

You’d have to eat a lot of flame-broiled burgers to save $130.

Always read the fineprint:

“Saving based on “recommended” pricing.”     What was the price?  $12 a burger?

Who’s doing the recommending?  Your king?

Just looking out for the masses.  🙂

 

 

Good Gourd!

I’m suffering from gourd guilt. I bought them to add a bit of atmosphere to the homestead, but now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, they’ve been summarily rejected for greens and glitter.

However, before giving them the heave ho, I have to stop and stare at them.

Seems only fitting (gourd guilt) that I honor their memory with a few last glimpses into their short-lived lives.

Rest in peace gourds!

See you next year!

Just enough for one slice of toast.
