I’m feeling lighthearted and warm today.
Hence I shall show you the above photo of two pots of ivy immediately after they had a shower in the kitchen sink. One is silver bells ivy, the other is jubilee ivy.
I can’t tell you which is which but I like ivy, and I especially like these two varieties because they have great names and are easy to grow.
That, my friends, is a win-win.
May you heart be like holly and your words be like ivy.
[An Irish blessing, not sure if I got it quite right, but you get the idea.]
Anyhoo, the real reason I’m in a great mood today is that once again I’m waiting for St. Vincent de Paul to get here to pick-up some furniture that we’re donating to them.
Everything but the kitchen sink.
[A nice idiom that lends itself to this post.]
Slowly, ever so slowly, we are divesting ourselves of that which we don’t need but someone else can use.
Another win-win, I believe.
Thus I’ll end this jotting-style post in which I prove that I can and will show up on Tuesdays. Because unlike most of the peoples I know, I like Tuesdays.
Having been born on one.
Tuesday’s child is full of grace.
[A childhood poem, one line remembered.]
So be it with me. What’s up with you?
