My friends, I’m excited to let you all know that my diligent Christmas Amaryllis is putting up a new bud!
I’ve been watching it for a couple of weeks, and now, it’s suddenly started to take off again. If everything goes like it has been, I expect new blooms within a month. Isn’t this COOL?
And look next, at what I believe is a third bud forming, from the center of the bulb!
See that little darling poking up, ready to greet the world!
What a plant!!!! I will keep you posted!
Now I have a confession to make…I am an Enabler. I have not only caused, but have actively enabled, my cat’s addiction to evaporated milk.
She’s lost some weight, her coat needed a little help…and I remembered she liked lactose-free milk. I had canned milk. So, I gave her just a teaspoon, and waited to see if she could tolerate it. She did! The next day, I gave her one more teaspoon, and waited. A few hours later, a tablespoon…
And a four-legged, furry evaporated milk junkie was born.
So, her weight is coming up a little, her coat is improving, and she doesn’t have even a shred of lactose intolerance. That’s great news! It’s great news, because now I can not enter the kitchen without the cat begging, asking for, screaming for, more milk!
Here’s my girl, with her “pathetic beggar kitty” pose, asking very politely for more evaporated milk goodness
See the paw? I wish I had the cell phone camera in my had a few days back when I asked her to, “Show me what you want,” and she went to the fridge and swatted the door…and then YELLED.
Finally, today, I’ll share this with you all…I “quick” felted a bar of the new soap I got from Heart’s Creations at Etsy (see the side bar for the link!). While the green peace sign is obviously made from dyed (commercial) roving, the whites and gray you’re looking at are so natural, the wool still has tiny bits of hay in it. I leave it there, too!
The soap itself is so wonderful that my hands, after the wet felting process, feel and smell incredible! That gray will be substantially lighter when the bar dries. And this soap, a gift for my friend upstairs, comes with its own wash cloth. I just love felted soap!
Hehe….I love felted…everything!
Time to go back to the hook! I have a pure wool scarf, hand spun, working, and I need nineteen “Feets Friends” by the end of the month. I also have two hats and a prayer shawl on deck. Better get to hookin’!
