A few notes

Some things:

-My orchid is still alive. Many said it couldn't be done. But 7 months later I am saying, it could. Although there are no blossoms, and no spikes for buds yet, I have faith that within the next few months it will spike a couple of spikes and there will be buds on them. It is green, growing and gorgeous. I can't wait for it to flower again. I think I will go get it some fertilizer that is rich in nitrogen to encourage flowering.

The moss around the edge turned brown, so today I gave it a makeover with new Super Moss. Hopefully it will stay green, it looks so good.

-The kids in my neighborhood are dumb. I came about 7 inches from running over two boys today. I was going 20 mph, so it wasn't my fault. It was these stupid boys' fault, they were in the middle of the street on bikes that they could hardly manage, their dad stood on the sidewalk as I nearly killed his children. I stayed stopped for a few seconds, looked at both of them in the eye and yelled "Get on the sidewalk!" I also swished my hand in the air in a shooing motion. I was pretty annoyed.

This happens ALL THE TIME in this neighborhood. I am considering a door-to-door campaign telling parents how stupid they are to let their kids play in the street.

I honestly cannot express my anger to its full extent.

-Why, why do people put music on their blogs? That is so obnoxious.

-I am thinking of starting a sewing blog, I have loads of projects on the horizon. The name I had chosen for the sewing blog, when searched for on the internet, turns out to be a book or something, so I am trying to decide what to do about that.

-I still haven't found a day job.

-Elizabeth is giving me this painting and I cannot wait.

-I have a new sort of project up my sleeve, I hope it turns out.

-Have you heard Ben Kweller's new songs? I am in love with each one.

My cat sits up like a human more than he sits like a cat.

That is a cute little nephew I have.

Re: Your orchid. Looks great. I never doubted you for a moment.

I love the range of this post. I can't wait to hear what this new project is, and your cat is unbelievable.

So much exciting news. That neighborhood is crawling with idiotic kids and their idiotic parents. Selfish, terrible people.

If you murder one of those kids with your car, the rest will learn not to goof off in the street.

How goes the wooing of Worlmark by Wyndham? Are you still considering working there?

Your flower looks awesome and I can't wait to see what kinds of projects you have in the works.

Fun to get caught up this way.
