I’ve been so busy with home/party/holiday/medical stuff and I feel like December is trying to crush me.
And not the kind of crush that makes you wear lip gloss 24/7.
But in the words of the great Gloria Gaynor: I will survive.
I just wanted to drop a few big things here on the blog.
My kale. (planted 8 weeks ago)
DaYuMMMM, it’s big.
And it’s also delicious sauteed with some garlic.
We’re still working on our landscaping and I have a butterfly whisperer helping me out. He’s eons ahead of me with butterfly knowledge. I mean he uses real names for them and not ‘that big yellow one with spots on it’ and has chosen some great plants; there is going to be a butterfly orgy when it’s all said and done. Rated R for Ridiculous!
Look at the (BIG) size of this pipevine flower. Have you ever seen anything like this?
Well, now that I think of it, it resembles something I might have seen in health class.
This pipevine will attract the elusive (to me) polydamas swallowtail. If you hear some loud screeching soon, it’s me finally seeing one in person!
Did you just roll your eyes and call me dramatic?
I started to put up Christmas decorations and it was all good until I realized that I loathe my Christmas tree. I used to love it, but after the last 4 years of it losing sections of lights here and there, I declared that we are going to break up.
The new (unlit) tree is ordered, just trying to figure out what to do with old tree to avoid the landfill.
I’ve had two different Dr. appointments this week (it’s only Wednesday) with two Orthopedics. I’m gonna just say that 52 is the age that my body is starting to turn on me. (knees & elbow/arm)
But again, I will survive. Thank you, Gloria.
We have a full weekend of fundraisers/parties and house guests.
Then I have two weekends of hosting parties; personal and our business party for employees. And I think Christmas is a minute after that.
And then someone has her 24th birthday. Spoiler alert, it’s not me, hence the Dr. appointments.
I’m really not complaining because life is beautiful and I’m fortunate enough to have alll these plans. Also, we have health insurance. I’m gonna blame the orthopedic issues on something that one of my ancestors did in the past that I’m now paying for karma-wise. 😉
Thank you great-great-great-grandfather for doing something unkind to another person. You fart blossom you.
That made me chuckle; I love calling someone a fart blossom. Even if they’re no longer with us.
So, how are my people? Anything positive that you can share with me?
Sharing is caring.
