Is is just me that continues to recite the words to the Dr. Seuss board books in my head after the grands leave?
Marvin K. Mooney will you please go now. . . I hadn't forgotten the words from the first round of kids. . .and now I have them all rumbling around again.
At one year old. . .they aren't necessarily interested on how the book ends. . .so my brain isn't reciting the end every few minutes. . .but the beginning. . .oh my.
Have you all tossed your poinsettia's already, or are you dealing with the yearly poinsettia toss guilt syndrome?
I fixed my little guilt syndrome problem. . .at least in this one Christmas planter. .
I whispered sweet nothings to the planter as I took it outside for some "fresh air".
Once outdoors. . .I slipped the tablespoon out of my pocket. . .
and dug around the poinsettia, being careful not to alert it's bed mates that something was amiss. . . .
After removing the objectionable faded Poinsettia plants . . .I added a primrose and a small bunch of daffodils. . .
After we finished our "fresh air". . .we went back inside. . .red to yellow. . .
The other two slightly weary Poinsettia's were retired. . .they've earned their keep. . .
my years of watering them until the last leaf drops .. . are done.
All for now. . with love,
