Happy Weekend.

I am surprised by how cold it has gotten. Real cold. I don't know if it's only me or the others too feel the same way. The poor plants on the balcony are taking the brunt of it all. While the general  norm is to either throw away cheap flowering plants or either move them to the cellars for winter, I honestly do not know what to do. While my heart does not permit me to throw them all in the garbage, I neither  have the space nor the artificial heating required for them to thrive in the cold winter. It's going to be hard to decide what to do. For now, I moved the spider plant into our dining room. The edges have already browned. 
I am also trying to get indoors whatever is remaining of the geraniums. This arrangement was inspired from Pinterest. I simply submerged the stems in water but they seemed to keep floating out. Getting frustrated after a while, I prayed that they sit still. Thank goodness for the compliments my little ones gave me on the arrangement. I think it will look pretty when I light the t lights around it tonight.

Another weekend is here! It's going to be quite busy in our home. Sonny will be away for 5 nights to a camp along with his classmates. So we shall be heading to a town 45 minutes away for some last minute shopping. Sunday we shall help him pack. He is so very excited. Me, I am nervous. It's his first time being away from the family for so long. Will he manage fine? I hope so!!

Till then, Happy Weekend all!!!


  1. I love it! You may defriend me after you read this comment but sometimes I'm happy when the plants die. How terrible right!!! Sometimes I just get over whelmed taking care of one more thing. It all just seems impossible and then I get nothing done! When the plants die I think good, I don't have to worry about that anymore. and the then spring comes and I think gee why couldn't I just take care of what I have. I'm just going to wear a big L on my forehead

    Cold? Oh! Gee I hate the cold! Brrrr! I hope your sonny does well. I hope you do well when he's gone.

    Love!and please don't defriend me. :)

  2. I know how you feel May, I hate to dispose of plants - where there is life I try to nurture it or at least use it somehow. The geranium vase is so pretty. Maybe the spider plant would live where some sunlight shines through a window? It is hard to remember cold when you live in a hot place though. Good luck.

  3. He will probably have a wonderful time and come home with lots of stories to share too!


I love it when you stop by to say a few words...
