The turning leaves are absolutely gorgeous this year. I haven’t seen them this beautiful in years.
It puts a smile on my face when I’m driving to see the reds and yellows and orange colors.
Mother Nature’s Work:
It’s like Mother Nature got out her watercolors and went to work. Because it is truly artistic. Not perfection, but nature’s work.
My Gingko Biloba Jade Butterfly tree’s leaves on the patio just started turning yellow over the weekend.
I like to sit here and gaze out at it through the French doors.
My Dusty Apartment:
I’m hoping today I will be able to clean my apartment. I managed to clean the bathroom yesterday. And this morning I changed and cleaned Ivy’s litter bos.
When my home has dust bunnies and there are layers of dust on the furniture it drives me crazy. But when I stand up very long my back seizes up on me and I haven’t found anything that will relax it so far.
Right now I have a big ice pack on it.
Muscle relaxers aren’t helping in the long haul. I all kinds of stretching exercises. Some mentioned here. Chair massagers work temporily.
But this apartment has got to be cleaned. I will feel better mentally once it is. And the sheets need to be changed as well.
Yesterday I drove to Southwood’s Nursery. I don’t think I would have lasted long had I not had a shopping cart to hold me steady.
They had house plants 30% off. So I wandered through and tried to make sure I saw each and every one.
I came home with four small plants. One is an airplane plant. I have a hanging one, but this one will sit somewhere.
Love, love, love these plants because they clean the air so well.
Christmas Cactus Plant:
I also bought a white (when it blooms) Christmas cactus. Haven’t had one of those in probably over 20 years. But someone mentioned theirs about to bloom here and that stoked my interest.
My doctor’s office has a gorgeous one and all it gets is fluorescent light.
If you have a Christmas cactus, what kind of exposure does it seem to like best?
I’m trying to remember what the other two plants are. But they don’t have the little plastic labels in them so I can’t recall. My memory sure isn’t what it used to be.
I’ll show you the plants once I get them out of those ugly little plastic pots.
Ivy is on the top of the tall cupboard in front of the living room window. She obviously sees something interesting. Her tail is thumping back and forth and she’s mesmerized by what she sees!
