Happy Cactus Monday...at 5 minutes before midnight!

This is the spineless prickly pear that I started a while ago from the big tree that was cut down in my neighborhood! It is growing, and has been a lot of fun to watch, with anticipation!!!

Below is my neighbor's beautiful curly-leaved Coleus! It has grown tremendously since she has planted it...and I am becoming more enamored with Coleus everyday! What a beauty!

Now here is another thing she has planted in her front garden. I like purple Wandering Jew, but when it flowers, I LOVE it! Is this not the sweetest flower EVER???

And here is a pic of my personal yard man (Dear Husband)...playin around. Told me to tell you his is "THE yard man", if you know what I mean!!! Hahaha! LOL. What a silly boy!!! :)

Been goofing around with making bracelets! Swarovsky, glass, and crystal beads...my Mom is a beading enthusiast, and she is so hoping I will become one also. I keep telling her that that will happen the day I decide that I LOVE Costco! (I can't take shopping there...too large a quantities for me), and the store drives me crazy because of size (same at Sam's Club). I must be a real weirdo.

Did I tell you I could not take my job. Now am looking for a new one...details to come later...

Happy Cactus MOnday!!!

You gotta love a yard man....
Little messyfish is OBSESSED with beads! Plays with little glass ones made in India all day long.
And no your not weired... Big shops are a nightmare. Down with choice I say! Living in the country is great for tiny shops that sell nothing much. Simplicity is my new catch cry. Can't wait to see your bead work.
