Just some little snippets going on in my life that I am sticking together in one blog post.
I started a part-time job this week! It’s a bit exciting because I haven’t worked for the 2 1/2 years we’ve lived in Ohio. It was nice to have that break, but, overall, I miss interacting with other people and I think my brain could use the stimulation. It is as an administrative assistant for a financial planning company.
The flowers my son sent for Mother’s Day are still alive and kicking over two weeks later. I thought that was pretty good. Of course, the flower buds weren’t open when I got them, but still ~ over two weeks and still looking fresh!
Memorial Day, 2014
Also, last week, I planted the urn by our garage door. This year I used cordyline, coleus, and two purple sweet potato vine plants.
The coleus has both the red of the cordyline and the purple of the sweet potato vine in it. I think this urn will look really good once it fills in a bit.
I also am trying to get myself up to speed with photo books of my granddaughter. I’ve had two “almost crashes” on my laptop, so I know the big one can’t be far off. I keep all my pictures on my laptop and, even though I back-up every Sunday, I am so afraid of losing these pictures. I have put together and ordered year two of my granddaughter and am working on putting together the photo book for year three now.
And, other than a horrible cold that I caught from said granddaughter, that’s what’s going on my way!
