While I’m disappointed with myself for not writing during March, I’m letting myself off the hook because March was decidedly less than inspiring. I overheard a young woman bemoaning the month as a whole, stating that “March tried to be too much like February, so I ignored it.”
(Meanwhile, it’s supposed to freeze here in Cincinnati tonight, so April’s not blazing any paths to originality, either.)
However, several events are bringing much joy in April. A short list below, complete with photos:
This jade plant dropped the leaf to the left a year or so ago. I noticed after a few days that the leaf had sprouted the tiniest root from its base so I shoved it in the soil and ignored it. Now there’s a little plant growing from the leaf. Yea!!
In other plant related news, my christmas cactus bloomed a second time in March. The plant thought it was still winter, too. It was gorgeous!
I’m working on a new shawl:
I finished my hourglass sweater:
However, I HATE the neck. It’s way, way too big. Rip it, rip it out.
(The Swingin’ Neckbreakers‘ cover of “Rip it Rip it Up” always runs through my head when I have to rip.)
The spate of news stories on the push-up as a benchmark of overall health freaked me out. I’ve been doing push-ups almost daily in an effort to repress my first attempt, which put me at “poor.” Not even “fair,” mind you. “Poor.” Ouch.
Since then, I’ve been a push-up machine. I wish I could say I was above jokes about going to the “gun show”…
And finally, because it’s been such a long time between drafting and posting, here’s another photo of my jade. Another little shoot!
And that’s all I got.
