One of the photos as I was entering our town this week, from a wheelchair perspective. I have not been able to go anywhere special this week due to rain and home stress with shopping and cleaning and generally having no me time. However, I really plan to go into town this afternoon. It is the Christmas market today and tomorrow and I want to take a few pictures and see some action.
My photos have dwindled to what is happening at home and photos of me and the hoover or mopping floors are not quite the hit of the day. My amaryllis is giving a little action and in the past week has been growing in leaps and bounds. Both flower stalks are now thinking about it. When it flowers it will be a white one.
The remains of my Christmas cactus also have buds ready to open. The main branch with a flower broke off the plant and I am trying to rescue the remainders by putting it in a glass of water at the moment. Perhaps it might make roots, perhaps not. I was thinking about buying a new one, but noticed that the store have no more.
And since last September I have this orchid which still bears flowers, although I think its days might now be numbered. I lost some flowers already, but these are still hanging on. Orchids are really encouraging. There price is OK, if you keep an eye open for some special offers and they last longer than any cut flower. As a plant they are also easy to care for. Just fill the container with water once every two weeks and leave it for a few minutes. Then empty it and put it back in a window place with moderate temperatures. That always worked for me. Some tell me about their orchids that flower again and again, but I have not yet had such luck.
And now to move on. I hope to get my chores done this morning early enough to go shopping a little earlier. I only shop three times in the week, but since I have been doing it all myself I never seem to get home until midday, when I have to start cooking. My afternoon time has dwindled considerably over the past week, so I will have to do some re-organisation. It makes a difference when you have to do it on your own, and I am not exactly Speedy Gonzales myself.
See you around, enjoy the day, until later.
