A bud on my Golden Rat Tail cactus!!!

I have spent a whole day trying to upload pics from my camera. Again I got them too large, and my daughter was able to resize them, bu they are now being uploaded onto Flickr. I have tried to upload to Photobucket and also set up a Picasa account, and tried there, and it has just turned into a nightmare. To the point of my thinking I would give up blogging. Gone are the days when I would snap pictures, and easily upload to Blogger. Gone, I tell you. I am at my wit's end. It is midnight now, and I started all this crap around 9am. Well, I did take a long break to go shopping in another city...AND that is the good part about my day!

Mom, daughter and I drove to Jensen Beach to visit a Hobby Lobby! There are, I believe, 14 stores in Florida, but none south of this store in Jensen Beach. That is a cryin shame! We have to drive about 35 minutes to get there. We have been to the one in Ocala, Fl...and the one in Stone Mountain area, Georgia. That was a fun time...that store was right across the parking lot from our hotel...oh...what fun!!!

I am trying to get three pics of the Golden Rat Tail Cactus my blogger pal, Claude, from Random Rants and Prickly Plants sent me back in 2009!!! It is finally branching and flowering! It seems happy out in the tire in full sun! Yippee! The flower is a gorgeous salmon pink too! I am watching the bud closely to catch it when it opens.



Today was my husband and my 22nd year wedding anniversary. We did not realize it until we were driving to dinner, and I started checking e-mail on my phone, and suddenly I see an e-mail from my brother and SIL titled Happy Anniversary! I had to really stop and think "anniversary of what"??? Then I turned to my husband and said Happy Anniversary to him...and we burst out laughing because we needed someone else to remind us!!! Hehehehe...I guess we are getting old.

Happy Anniversary to both of you:)

For goodness sakes Julie. Happy Anniversary. At least you are both on the same page about not fretting about your anniversary. Glad you went to dinner at least to celebrate even if you didn't know that is why you were out. Your cactus is interesting. I hope you can post a picture when it blooms. Blogger can be so aggravating.

I think, after this next move I will start to have some houseplants again. :) No room in the cabin. I am thinking succulents and orchids. :)You are so inspiring Julie!

My husband and I ALWAYS forget our anniversary. We've been married 17 years, and I bet we've only remembered 5 anniversarys. haha Glad to see there are like minded folks out there!!!

We were married on Sept 10. My kids asked why would we get married the day before 09/11. I explains that 9/11 didn't happen until many years after our marriage. Kids...

Happy anni! I never remember that stuff either. Mark remembers them all. Me? None.

Your Claude cactus has really thrived! Unfortunately, the last one he sent me bit the dust this past summer. I think it's just too hot and dry here for a Texas cactus.
