My goodness. I was so extremely sleepy in church this morning for the first time in my entire life I was close to falling asleep. I have never had that happen before.
Since then, I came home, cleaned house and as a final fillip, I took the plants outdoors again till late September. One plant, I wish I could give away. My Christmas cactus. It's pretty and all of that but I want fewer plants. I am down to just three as it is...mother's cactus, which is the incredibly lovely and horrifically smelly Stapelia Grandiflora, the Christmas cactus and a Jade plant that is a cutting from my middle son's jade plant from when he first started teaching. That and mother's plant have sentimental value. The Christmas cactus does not. I can't make myself just throw it away. That's like committing murder or something so I'm stuck with it until and if someone will take him off my hands.
Guess what? I have a tomato plant out there again on the deck. AND a green pepper plant too. I will be chronically their growth and buds and fruits as they happen. I get so proud. I hope they do well. I have a Primrose to plant and I need to get those sunflowers out there into the ground against the fence.
This is the Bull Run Steam Plant operated and owned by TVA.
