N'awlins at heart

Huggin trees.

We stopped by the Sketchers store today. We should have checked for Birkenstocks. Because when we returned home, we did a rescue mission. It also involved not one, but two trips to Home Depot. We grossly underestimated the task we were taking on. But it needed to be done.

If you've ever been to our apartment you have probably seen the gigantic aloe plant outside. It's been there since we've been here and it continues to grow. I wish I had taken pictures before we took the plant apart. When it was all said and done, there were sixteen plants in one pot. And not a very big pot.

Our first trip we grabbed one large bag of dirt and three pots. Then we uprooted everything and saw what we were dealing with. We went back for two more large bags of dirt and seven more pots. And for the record, potting soil smells like poo. An hour or two later this is what we had.

We put the main / largest plant back in the original pot. It was being literally uprooted by all the others. It leans way to the side but I'm hoping with the extra room for roots it will get healthy and open back up towards the sun. I'll have to keep an eye on it.

Looks like all of you are soon to be proud owners of aloe plants.

Thursday Jazz.

Okay, it's not Friday, and this is not Taunt Society, but still some impressive jazz.

Apparently my new thing is blogging on Thursday.

Neglect is a 4 letter word. (Plus 3)

My mom always told me, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all". Because of that, I have once again neglected my blog.

Work and everything else has been driving me crazy! But I do want to say "Thanks" to Patti. Your phone call yesterday morning made my day. I really needed that. :)
