The succulent and cactus window shows the various things that I have collected from others. The succulents were given to me by a neighbor who was given to her by people who visit Texas and Mexico. The succulent just doesn't stop growing and I have one other container of them upstairs in a window. I guess the rains tried to drown out one of them but it survived anyway. The cactus on the right came from a very large plant and it now is twice the size as to when I first got the thing. It is a dangerous thing with very few but very large spines. The little ones in the stoneware will never get too large and I like that.
Natural and unnatural sculptures side by side. The snow is going to melt very little today but it will be above freezing. Sleet came yesterday to clean up out dirty snow. I didn't have to shovel it and it was nice to have a cleaner surface.
I was called in to work for this morning at a late time so I don't have any of yesterday's photos downloaded. I barely got a shower and shaved but I did. I was scheduled for the afternoon for a job but they begged me in for the morning. My first hour class was sent to the library and I had to go get them to bring them to the classroom.
Decorations are slowly coming down. I don't like the shock of seeing it all cleared so I take things and put them away a few at a time. A tree is down and the Christmas angles and nutcrackers will be disappearing soon. Working in the day means I don't get much of it moved but I do grab things when I have to go upstairs anyway. I need to rearrange the entire storeroom upstairs and will do so as more things end up there.
Our foggy, snowy and rainy weather is getting to be too much. We have it to look forward to one more day and then the ice king on the express will arrive. Sunday is to have a high of 9 degrees F. (-13 C.) It will be a test to see if the car will be reliable. I dread it when the weather is the major thing in life that has to be faced. Thank you for stopping by today.
