I’ve been posting so regularly lately and enjoying it so much that I didn’t realise it was time to take stock last Sunday! So here it is today. I’ve had a bit of a funny day today. You know the one where it doesn’t feel like Sunday, it feels like Saturday and like you’ve only just started your weekend, but also feels later in the day than it actually is? Yeah, it feels like that. I’m mostly trying to ignore it and potter around doing other things – I’ll soon be making a delicious chicken stir fry for my lunch throughout the week, and tidying up the place so I can actually use my desk as somewhere I can write posts. Crazy idea. Anyway, let’s get started!
Looking: at my maiden hair fern in the morning sunlight and feeling so glad I was able to save her. I left her outside in the sun for far too long and snails got to her – I thought she’d had it! But I brought her inside and have kept the water up and added only indirect sunlight and I think she’s doing okay 😀
Loving: my random assortment of homewares that I’ve accumulated from op shops and inherited from family. I am nowhere near moving out of home just yet but man, do I have a box at the ready. The tablecloth was from an op shop and both the shakers and the tins (there are smaller ones nested inside) are from my gran.
Enjoying: this beauty of a bloom from my zygocactus! They’re funny little plants (all succulents are, let’s be honest) and started developing these tight red buds a week or so ago and then – BOOM (or should I say BLOOM…lols) – this lovely thing was waiting for me when I went to check on my collection earlier today.
(Really) Hoping: I can propagate these bad boys. I’ve read some conflicting info on the net about how much water and sunlight to give them so I’m sort of playing it by ear. They seem to be going okay so far, sending some nice pink roots down to the soil. We shall see how they go!
I don’t particularly feel it is fair to call the past little while the “month” of October. I think “the blink of October” is far more accurate. I have no idea what I did these past four weeks…whoops! What was the best thing about your October? Can you remember it or are you being a forgetful Fran like me?
