Alternanthera dentata, or Purple Knight all planted up!

I dug up my two largest plants, which I had started from rooted cuttings (yay)...and planted them in these pots for my aunt and cousin to take across the state and see how they do there. I hope it works out well.

My cousin arrives today to help me with cleaning out Moms house.

I have to tell you all (since I had shared about getting the library job with you), that after working there 6 weeks, I realized I would not be able to handle everything with Moms estate, the family and working full time. I had to leave my beloved library job! I still feel that it was the best thing for me, and for our family.

After I get Moms stuff taken care of, I will begin to look for another job. Just wanted you all to know. My advise to anyone who is offered a job on the same day a family member, (or even close friend) dies, is not to accept the job, if at all possible. At this point I feel so badly that I wasted their time. It was not anything I could have known then, but still...

I guess the only "Mayor of the Library" title will be an imaginary one! LOL. (See previous post).

It is a rainy weekend here with the tropical event happening out in the Gulf of Mexico. They still don't know where it will go, but most models have it heading through central to north Florida. Our biggest threat will be flooding.

God Bless!
xoxo- Julie

Hi Julie *hugs*
Oh I can well imagine how busy you must be and how much you have on your mind too. Just having your head so full of things is busy enough...I know you have your family and your precious little grandkids to think about too.

The plantings are lovely and what a nice idea for your aunt to take them with her...they are pretty.

*hugs* have a good evening

So sorry to hear about your job but at one time or another, I think a lot of us had to make that same decision, (I have and it is not easy), I know somewhat what you are going through. I pray that when the time for you to look for another job, the right one will be out there for you. Good to hear that you have some more help with your Mom estate. Big hugs to you.
Love your Purple Knight. A beauty.

Sorry about the library job but you have to go with what is best for you and your family. I'm sure another job will come along once you have your Mum's estate sorted out...that has be a tough and emotional task in itself. Good luck with it all, Julie. xo

They could sure use some rain in Colorado right now with those wildfires. Last I heart, 346 homes burned and wildlife would have taken a huge toll sad.

Love and hugs,

Thanks Julie. I tried to open up your photo that you put on my last posting. Not sure what I can not see it. : (

Have a wonderful 4th of July with your Family and friends. God bless.
