The Cyclamen watch continues–I still think those buds look suspiciously white. I tried to get a closeup with the iPhone, and it is not perfect, but you can see what I mean. I see that the first Bud’s stem is rising in what seems hopeful. Like it is preparing to open –I look so forward to the first blossom. Then the mystery of the color will be manifest. There are many more tiny buds in the works too! How exciting! In my warped mind, I hear, “this Bud’s for you!”

While Cliff slaved away, I had a fun week. Of course, we both celebrated the 48th Wedding Anniversary on Wednesday; but Thursday was my birthday. It has never been sweeter. After the long health-crisis, to be well enough to go out with one of my best friends was indeed welcome.Toes_6576

So many large leaves–amazing!

 

 

First, we drove out to our oldest Granddaughter’s place. She and her helpers (Evangeline and River) gave us an expert pedicure. From there we went to lunch at Wingers in Ontario–I had the Blue Strawberry Salad. I love it and especially love the fresh Strawberry Vinaigrette, but the Blue Cheese Crumbles, the candied pecans, mixed greens, strawberry slices, and grilled chicken are not shabby. We made a couple of stops for things I needed and called it a day. I think it is official that I overdid, but I have bounced back.

While I was gone, Cliff removed the toilet and grouted behind it. There is still plenty to be done in there, but I am happy for his recent effort. There have been other attention grabbers such as his battle with the little red tractor. He has had it apart more than once. He has narrowed down the issue and trying to problem solve the design flaw. He is amazing. In the meantime, he moved the wheel line, and the chain broke–then he misplaced it and bought a new one. I think that it turned out to be serendipitous in nature. The new chain wasn’t all that expensive. The wheel line moves much easier–which is fantastic.
