For some reason some of my posts here didn’t make it out to you last week! But here is a retrospective of what should have been as I got ready for Christmas. Hopefully I’ll figure out what "went wrong" and make sure it doesn’t happen again!
Finally all the Christmas cards are made and sent out! But there is a trail of paper and ribbon and label scraps throughout the house. I thought I’d escape to the craft room for a few minutes before I tackled the house cleaning. But I couldn’t believe the disaster that awaited me. So I went out onto the lanai (porch) just to look at the garden, only to be faced with two very bare Christmas trees. More work!! Is there no rest for the wicked???
Ah, yes. Here at the computer, where my desktop is as neatly arranged as it was yesterday and the day before and the day before that. Lovely how computers stay uncluttered (at least on the surface, which is the only thing I see anyway).
But I can look out the windows of the house while I go do my cleaning up chores. Here’s another of the poinsettias that are growing in one area of the garden. I just can’t get enough of looking at them actually growing in the garden! No piddly little house plant here in Hawaii. In the Kailua-Kona area, whole hillsides are covered with these flowers that bloom during the late fall/early winter time. I’m happy for just the small display that I enjoy every day.
