This is C.C. Bloome, the only plant I have never been able to kill. I bought it as a tiny little potted plant at Woolworth's probably 20 years ago. The best thing about C.C. (Christmas Cactus) is I only have to water it once a month. And to force it to bloom, I put it out on the porch all summer.. Mostly forget to water it, and then drag it back in the house in mid October, sit it in the shower for 20 minutes, and the buds start popping. Then I feed it. Can't ask much more than that. If I was rich, I would like to have a gardener. I love beautiful gardens and flowers, but I really don't like to garden. I love this plant, and I am grateful that I haven't killed it with negligence.
Today, I am finishing listening to a book so that I can go to the library. I have been working on cleaning my studio, which has been in disarray since I started cleaning it. I should just put on a blindfold and start tossing. Everytime I pick something up, I think I can probably use it at some point. I was getting a lot of stuff together for our guild rummage sale, but I couldn't go, so I will just continue to collect stuff to sell.
By the way, I decided to delete the post with my daughter's accident. I don't need a reminder every time I look at my blog. She is doing well. And I'm thankful that I made her wear her seatbelt when she was growing up. She was one of those kids that I had to stop the car for because she would unbuckle, or not buckle. At least she learned something from everything I tried to teach her. It saved her life.
Have a good weekend! Maybe I will actually get started on something fun that I can share.
