An uneventful week

I don't have much of interest to share for this post. Sorry to "all" my loyal readers. I won't bore you with details, but between work, teaching classes and an upset stomach, I haven't had much play time.

I have been forgetting to post this picture. This is on the wall in the bathroom of the quilt shop where I teach. I guess it was a panel to begin with. The talented girl who teaches thread painting, Kelly Maloy, did this as a gift for the shop owner. I'd like it on a shirt, wouldn't you?

I think I mentioned the "Silver Torch" cactus getting a bud. This is what it looked like a few days ago. It will grow to about two and a half inches long before the flower "opens". It's actually a very unspectacular bloom. My son asked me how big this plant will get. It is currently about 20 inches tall. I looked it up and there was a picture of one about 7 feet tall, but no bigger around than mine. The one on the garden shop website was tied to a post in their greenhouse. I forget how old they said it was. Mine is at least 20 years old!

I am grateful for:
The fact that we have had the last of the carpet installed, so no more moving furniture from room to room!
My very sweet son.
Having a job where I look forward to spending time with the co-workers.
Finally, a new episode of Grey's Anatomy tonight!
