The Sunflower in its Splendor

A very fun flower to grow from seed!

Part 121G

I went to O'Reilly Auto Parts Website, searching for part "121G ". They were out of stock. Anybody got a spare?

Me hat

This is from a few weeks ago, when it first got to be hot. The hat is supposed to protect my tender cheeks!

Indoor garden

My experiment with an indoor strawberry plant is a success. The cats ignore it and it looks nice.

Basement Week

I took a week off work to clear my basement so I can rent it out. With that additional income I will be financially secure. I have succeeded in sorting every cardboard box but still have tubs to process, plus Kiara's gear to pack and ship, and about four cases of photos to scan, upload and discard. This is a major undertaking for I have accumulated all my life (I have ephemera from St. Ed's and even a few photos from Volasuca!) It takes a great effort to move on some of this stuff. Donating anything useful feels good; the "Mary's Place" homeless shelter gets a lot, and St. Vinny's. Many of the books I'm taking to Pegasus; they donate anything they don't buy. Magazines and books still readable but not of resellable quality go to the VA Free Library. A few things are up for sale on Facebook; I've made $10 or $20 cash, not enough to make up for the ending of my Amazon sales but Amazon was no longer profitable so it's not really a loss. Some things are recycled. That's important too. I am not going to complete the process by Sunday night but I am well enough along that it is going to sustain itself by habit. Like my morning yoga, once I repeat something often enough it becomes a habit which is more important in the long run than an unsustainable push.

Arthur Nails It!

If you can judge a cat's health by the length of his claws, Arthur leaping on my shoulder may live forever!
