Went alone, returned alone, but oh the inbetween!!

I never get tired of sharing my adventures about Camp Lebanon. This visit was great once again. What could go wrong when you're surrounded by great friends and new acquaintances? Quilting was paramount although I never feel like doing anything since that's such a luxury for me at the present time at home. There also was another round of Hand and Foot. The West Coast won this time. Since I am a person that thrives on alone time as well I found some solace in a short walk around the camp on Saturday afternoon, shot some hoops with a deflated ball in 38 degree weather and took in a Saturday mass in the small town of Upsala about 3 miles away (Does anyone know that they sell a tube of toothpaste there for 3 dollars and 95 cents?). Anyway, all in all I had a great time, especially since I didn't forget my toothpaste. P.S. Peace to you too darling Darlene!

Spring is here??!!

First my apologies go out to my regular readers. My life has become way too complicated recently and also I haven't really done anything to warrant a blog post (I hate just blogging for the sake of blogging). Anyway, the other day I noticed my Christmas cactus in full bloom and thought, "wrong season, right reason". I am so into spring, and planting seeds and such that I decided to take a picture of it. I actually do nothing with this plant except throw some water at it on a rare occasion and it gives me such pleasure. It's worth sharing with all you seed-planting, lets break out the sprinkler and lawn chair people that I put it here. You'll have to excuse the pot. It was one I made as a budding (excuse the pun) artist in Junior High and I just can't part with it. Enjoy!
