Happy Cactus Monday!!! I'm here!!!!
I did it! I sat myself down this evening freehanded a picture from a book called "Bringing The Outdoors In", by Peter Loewer. I added some color with my Mr. Sketch Pens and detail with my purple Sharpie ultra fine pen. It is a fantasy orchid cactus. I love how the stamen hang gracefully downward. I also really love epiphyllum stems! They are so cool looking...especially when wrapped around a tree!
We took grandson Donovan with us today for a little day trip, on my husbands last day of staycation! We first drove to Stuart, Florida and ate lunch at Cracker Barrel. Afterward, the two boys played some good old checkers together!
We did some country driving, tried to go to the Energy Encounter on Hutchinson Island at the Nuclear Power Plant, but found it is only open weekdays. Then we drove to the Treasure Coast Mall to stretch our legs, and was so pleased to find a Borders bookstore! Ours went out a few years ago, sadly. I really miss it. Then we walked the mall, and I snapped a few piocs of Donovan posing with some of the little favorite TV character rides there. It was a fun day.
I start my new job on Tuesday. My orientation to the company isn't until Aug 2, but my training for the actual job will start in 2 days! They wanted me to start tomorrow, but I already had some appointments, so Tuesday was OK. My friend, who went to NY for a week, will be so surprised that I found, got and started work already since she left! I haven't talked to her because I just wanted her to have fun with her friend there, and I can surprise her when she gets back home. I need to go buy a few items of clothing for work tomorrow too. I've been off 7 months, and really need to freshen up the wardrobe!
Happy Cactus Monday everyone!!!
