Mike just told me he loved me. 

I took these pictures this morning.  This is growing in my Patchouli plant planter.




Mushrooms are cool and all, but what makes these interesting is that I bought this particular plant from a grower who also grows and sells many things that he puts very large disclaimers on.  The disclaimers all go something like this, “Even though this plant is known for it’s psychedelic properties, and has for centuries been used as a relaxing way to get in tune with your inner-self, I do not sell these plants with that intention.  I certainly don’t recommend that you dry the leaves by hanging them in a gentle breeze and then put them in a pipe”

So I do wonder what kind of mushroom spores the dirt may have picked up.

So far I have not been able to successfully propagate my Patchouli.

It occurred to me the other morning that my sister and I were both born with unique birth defects.  I wonder why.  Is there some strange genetic misstep that caused it?  I have recently been recommended to yet another type of specialist,, bringing my current doctor total to 4.  Not including the Dentist who I support, and my eye doctor.  I was feeling a little sorry for myself, but I’m better now. 

Thank you for all the kind words on my pictures yesterday.  My daughter is adorable. I think I will have her send me the picture in a higher resolution and then print it and frame it, in keeping with my current hobby of framing things.  But really, I don’t think I heard nearly enough compliments on my cactus!  They are the cutest little things.  Maybe I’ll frame that picture too!

I’ve been playing scrabble online through iGoogle for a week and I love it!  I am not good at Scrabble, but this is a fun way to do it.  One game takes days and days because you play your turn and then go away and eventually the other person logs in and plays there turn and they go away, and so on.  Fun Stuff!  If anyone else plays let me know and I’ll start a game and invite you, or vice versa.  I’m t.helpme  @  gmail  .  com  .  No Spaces of course, that’s just to help keep my email a little more safe from automated programs.

I am liking Pride and Prejudice and Zombies so far!

  1. Let me try this again!  I was here and commenting and I hit some button on my computer and then I was gone.Anyway the mushroom thingy – haha!Oh I’m sorry to hear that you have to visit yet another specialist.  I was wondering how things are going.  I guess not well.  Sorry.I did like the cacti.  Did you ever have Frank’s Nursery & Craft stores in your area?  I used to work there a million years ago and I loved the cacti.  The plant lady would dress up the little guys with funny hats.

  2. @skanickadee – The specialist is probably no big deal, just an endocrinologist.  It just annoys me that I have another doctor.And yes, we did use to have Franks!  I loved them.

  3. Love is a very nice thing to be reminded about! 

  4. @tracy – I hope you like your new doctor and s/he figures out whatever and makes you all better.Holiday time at Frank’s was one of my favorite jobs.  When the tree trucks would come in we would all get out coats and gloves on and haul trees.  So much fun and it smelled good, too!

    Hmmm are you growing shrumes?:)  Sorry couldn’t help it.  I remember in the 60’s that they were the in thing to smoke for all of the hippies.  I hope this new specialist helps and that you are feeling better soon.  Have a great week.
