the little cactus that could
this week has been so full of thinking that my little brain hurts. i believe in signs, nudges and winks from God. i really do. when my littlebaby cactus who is seriously at the most two inches in diameter bloomed her heart out for me. she made me promise to bloom my heart out, too...and i will. this little cactus that could is truly my hero.
yesterday, i pulled out all of the boxes of bath stuff in the hallway that we have been walking around for months and organized it into clear boxes. it was delirium at best. i finally finished around 10 and went to bed promptly after that. clearly, when you live in boxes you must forget what you have or cannot find it and have to buy another.
my dear friend linda brought over a few wonderful things for me, since she & her family are *boo hoo* moving to dallas. san antonio will be officially less cool when they go. so, i piddled with those things and will rock out a grotto that she gifted me with. the grotto belongs here. the paint is the exact color of the house's eaves. her daughter rachel is one of those gifted souls who has more talent in her pinky than you have in your whole body...and i can't wait to see her journey in the artworld, but sadly now further away.
i hung the dartboard in its permanent spot at official height, which is by the way bullseye at 5'8" ...and i can't wait for sage to see the house today. it is really coming together, even though there are buttloads of stuff still left to do. don't hold your breath, but cabinets are getting installed tomorrow. i need to have another cup of coffee and start on the salad for lunch. i can't wait to chill with my babies today.
back to signs,nudges&winks, there has been so many in the past two months, the past week and it makes me feel less alone, more safe and i know without a doubt in capable hands. so, i am just now in bloommode.
happy mother's day to you all...those of you who mother twolegged creatures and those who mother creatures of four.
