Monday

I was slightly off kilter over the weekend and didn't do a damned thing because of my back again. So today, I'm making up for all that by doing some laundry this morning and cleaning. OY! How can just 2 people make so much laundry in one week. I have 4 loads to do today.
I did get something nice in the mail on Saturday. The Spider plants came. They were carefully wrapped in newspaper in 2-inch pots. They are really quite lush and leafy for plantlings. I was amazed at the wonderful condition they were in when I unwrapped them. The soil was moist and none of them were in shock. Cute little things. Well, I think they're cute. Some of the soil got loose when I put them on the kitchen window sill to sit in the light for a bit but otherwise they look perfectly fine. David ordered them to be expedited. They got here in 3 days time. Now to find nice hanging baskets for them. This calls for a trip to the local nursery. I will probably go tomorrow if I feel good enough.
Mango sprout
Also, on Saturday my mango seedling popped out of the soil. I planted the seed about a week ago and that thing sprouted like magick. I wasn't expecting it for another week. It looks like a dead parrot claw.

I'm going to grow another one as soon as I can go to the store to get mangos. I will be starting lemon seeds as soon as I get a few more. That way I can be sure to have at least 2 lemon plants growing.

Well, this house won't get cleaned by just talking about it. Got to go. Have a great day y'all.

  3. Oh,thank you for keeping me in your thoughts! It is very sad what is happening to my country. A whole country bullied around and beaten to the ground, let's hope better days will come! My back is much better, as well as my metabolism which I hope translates into a healthyish thyroid. So, I am better than I have been in a couple of years if you don't mind a uti and an ear infection that's bothering me because of staying way too long in the sea while it was very.windy a couple of weeks ago.
    I love your new plants they are so pretty and I bet they will be very happy in your hanging baskets. I hope your back feels better soon. Try not to clean too hard!! Take care of yourself my dear friend!! Lots of love!
