|My favorite Oriental Lilies in my garden|
My garage is full of furniture that I now have to find a good way to dispose of. I already have three generations of furniture in my house. I guess there's a bit of my mom in me, since I hate to let go of these things which were so important to my aunt.
When all of this gets to me, I head to the nursery. At present I have only two little boys in there, but they are great therapy- better than anything the pharmaceutical companies could ever dream up!
Hedwig (like Harry Potter's owl) was also found all by himself, in a busy parking lot downtown. He is the only kind of love money can buy - or will be, when he goes up for adoption. He snuggles right into me, gives head bumps and lots of kitty kisses. He has a wonderful deep purr! (He's going to be harder to give up)
Before I left the house this morning I grabbed a few pictures. My favorite cactus is in bloom again. It's night blooming, so you have to see them early in the day or you miss it. They smell like kind of like Lily of the Valley.
When I came back in from feeding the rabbit, I caught a glimpse of something under the back door steps. At first I thought it was a snake! I ran to get Al and show him this slug . He put his hand in there to show how big this thing is. I usually stomp slugs, but not that one. I bet he'd fight back!
If you're curious, here is more information about them, called "Leopard slugs" They can grow to 8 inches long! I am hopeful the only reason we have one is because of how wet it has been this year. EEUW!!
I am grateful for:
My husband, who makes me laugh and helps me no matter how odious the chore.
Mary Lee being close enough again that we can have lunch on my work days.
My rare (this year) sewing time- even if I don't have much to show for it sometimes.
Air-conditioning that makes me comfortable- not cold!- on a hot day, and allows me to sleep well at night.
Chocolate, as always!!
