For lack of time, I am including my Catus Monday pic, which is an absolutely lovely aloe plant (?????), and if it is, I am wondering the type of aloe it might be? If anyone knows, they can, as with the previous post, earn 2 worthless points! Hey, someone needs to give Candy a run for her money. She ID's the last succulent for me so quick, she is like a flash of lightening! Anyway, the administrative assistant in our department at work has this plant at her desk, under flourescent lighting and it is doing great! I absolutely love it, and I think it might be Aloe cryptopoda??? Not sure...
Now here is the latest page in the trashy darn finanacial dream journal. I drew out these bees freehand using a Sharpie pen over a background of acrylic paint. Added a few magazine cutouts, and voila...a new silliness! This book is what I do when I am making art with grandson Donovan.
Look out below, it's a movie starlet...Miss Emily June!!!
Now for a little review on a product I bought for Donovan. He is almost 6, and he found this to be the most fun! Of course, everything is Star Wars right now, so that part was all good, but he also enjoyed the process of this neat coloring system!
It came in a neat package that holds everything back inside in between uses, which I loved. It kind of reminded me of the old paper dolls we used to get, with pockets inside to hold everyting. Anyway, there are 5 double sided pages, in black. They are plastic coated, cleanable and re-useable!!! The lipstick consistency pens are twisty to put out more product as you go, and they are wiped off with a wet sponge (also included). Donovan played with this for hours. The only negative is that I wish there were a few more colors, like RED. Oh, one more thing...the back of the package is a frame, so you can display your pic to the outside and view it like that...it is a Star Wars frame too! Pretty cool.
Below are a few pics of the grands when they spent the night with us last night! Donovan has his pull out couch all done up in Transformer detail.
Poor Donovan is thinking, "Why so early Grandma, with the darn camera"!!!
My Mom and I drove my brother and his wife to the Ft. Lauderdale airport Friday, and we ate lunch at a Japanese/Thai restaurant. It was cute outside with little window boxes all along the front, filled with Crown of Thorn plants...the pink ones.
My cell phone takes such crappy pics...I apologize! I had also stolen a leaf from a little variegated Hoya in the bathroom there, but it immediately started to die, when it was removed from that dark environment...by the time we got home, it was half brown! Oh well, I tried. Hee.
