Oh my goodness...they're just so cool already!
I'm pretty sure it's a flower that's gonna bust out any day.
This is the tallest shoot, and it's awful thick at the top!
Is it a flower? Is it? What do you think?
Here they were back on December 2nd.
Can you believe how fast they come up?
I've added water at least every other day, sometimes every day.
They really suck it up.
On the RED doily front...I was just about to finish the next-to-last round last night and start the last one when I noticed an error in the prior round. It was a bad one. I tried to fudge it several different ways, but it just looked shitty. So, like the Paperwhites, sort of, I sucked it up and ripped out two rounds. I managed to get one round re-done before I stopped for the night. Today and tonight I will hopefully get those last two rounds finished and have a BIG RED Tah-Dah! for us all. I can't wait to see how it looks on my mantel.
All I have to say about the last few days is THANK YOU. I hope you're not worried that my blog is going to turn into a big whine-fest, look at me and how horrible my life was, feel sorry for me, love me, give me attention, wah, wah, wah. It's not. When all is said and done, I've had a pretty happy life, and I'm lucky and extremely grateful to be where I am today.
My skeleton closet was bursting at the seams, and I was unable to keep that door shut and locked for one more minute. Now that I've made some room in there -- and it's a big closet -- I am able to securely shut that door again and lock it up tight, and that's the way it's going to stay. Everything has escaped that needed to. The rest will stay where it's supposed to be.
Next year will be full of new beginnings, and we're very excited for what lies ahead!
