Late night thoughts
I am sitting here with Doozey Dog, all alone with hubby and daughter asleep! The hum of the a/c was a little too quiet, so I turned on Anderson Cooper for some company! I really hate watching the news, but every once in a while I will. Too depressing.
Today I finally watered all of my little succulents in the screenroom with a half strength liquid indoor houseplant fertilizer. They seem to like it. While doing that, I decided to switch out my kitchen window plants (which had been the ones Claude had sent me)...I moved them out into slightly higher light, and decided to bring in my absolutely GORGEOUS variegated gasteria! Doesn't it just look so exotic? It has grown so much on the past year...(well...very slow growth, but yet steady). I think it has a sort of classical beauty...like a rose. It just seems so pleasing to my eye. I have a real love for this one!
Here is something fun that I ran across tonight!
10% of proceeds go to animal shelter. These sock animals are a sort of new passion for me! I saw a book at Micheals Craft store last night and was very excited to see animals made out of all sorts of crazy socks! Then I found this gal, who makes them for the animal shelter. Alright...that is a great cause! You can see them here at Adopt a Sock. Hope you enjoy!
If I ever make a sock pet, you will be the first to know! Maybe this weekend...
