I am looking at a large flowerpot that contains a beautiful snake plant. I've had it for several years and need to repot it soon. There are quite a few smaller leaves that would love extra room so they could grow and bring up their own little shoots. It is such a hardy plant and thrives no matter what you do, or what you don't do, to it.
As for snakes, I can't help but worry about meeting one when I walk Rocky twice a day. We usually take a road that runs through some woods (not dense woods, though) to another building site where more new homes are springing up. I hope they leave the woods alone, and I think there are some trees that are on the "protected list" in these woods. A determined builder could probably find a way around any kind of building codes, but I hope they don't try it in this case.
I am tired of living here, and while my personal space is awesome, I'm totally separated from everything and everyone. I can't even see the street from the windows on my side of the house. As with all California houses, they are separated from the neighboring properties by a tall wooden fence.
Today started out hot, and will probably end up hanging around the 100 degree mark. If it's this hot in June, I hate to think of what July and August will be!
Jeannie and I went to a store yesterday evening called 'Total Wine". I was in "wine heaven", and have never seen such a collection of every type of wine, in every price range. One of the store employees must have noticed the bottles already in my cart and brought me a coupon for 20% off my total order. This was a good move on his part because I bought even more than I intended. I even bought myself a bottle of Johnny Walker scotch, as it was actually lower than Costco's price! So the long, lonely evenings won't be so bad as I will have my friends, Johnny W. and Mr. Moscato to keep me company for a while!
While it may sound like a lot, I can assure you that I have always adhered to the rule that I stop drinking whatever it is BEFORE I start to feel the effects! That seems to work for me.
I didn't intend to get so "wordy" so I will quit now and wish you all a great day/evening, wherever you are.
