Molly the (wild) Cat asked, "Is it ever going to be normal again?"
A week or so ago, the blinds for the sliding door bit the dust after 32 years of excellent service. Fortunately, the vertical panels were being drawn for the night when the system snapped only several inches away from the door. Missy Molly still has a bit of unobstructed window onto (into?) the backyard. Monitor the birds, she can.
Nothing out of the ordinary there for Molly Girl.
Now, to get the curtains sewn and up before she gets used to the nonworking blinds.
Some of you may remember that back in July I bought eight yards of this cool peacock print at an antique fair, with not a notion of what to do with all that fabric. Want to guess what I'm going to finally sew with it?
Mama's jade plant is in full bloom. It flowers around this time, which amazes me because it's winter, by golly. I finally looked up how it is that this succulent flowers in winter. It's normal: The darker days and cooler temperatures of winter stimulate jade plants to pop! pop! pop! in tiny white flowers.
