This is a picture of my friend's Christmas Cactus and it was taken about a month ago. A little early for Christmas but pretty good timing for Thanksgiving.
She said it has never bloomed this much before and it was a surprise. My friend had an emergency surgery and was hospitalized for about a week. When she came home from the hospital this plant was just one big batch of red blooms. She took it as a good omen.
I caught part of the Oprah show yesterday. It was about selecting winners of a 'decorate it yourself' contest. I live in a different world. Not better, not worse, just different. One lady excitedly told how she found and got her woven dining room chairs. (They were cool.) And the eight of them only cost her $1200. "They were only $150 each!"
Well, for $1200 they should be cool.
Like I said... just different worlds, different priorities. I bet I don't get as stressed as she does, although I do have my moments.
The next decorating contest Oprah should have is where nothing cost over $40. Now there's a challenge.
I can't seem to get moving today. Its cold out, but the sun is shining. I should be jumping all over the place but..... sigh. Things in motion tend to stay in motion and that's my challenge for the day. To move.
