I would dearly love to go outside in the sunshine but I've been ill all night - chills, no thrills, sick stomach, headache...I guess I shouldn't complain. It's the first time I've been sick in over a year. Got to watch Carmi on the Shopping Channel and I ended up ordering all kinds of stuff I don't need. Now I'm thinking that I should have ordered the flowers. Maybe I will..... Last night I listed quite a few dog sweaters on my etsy shop. End of season sale, free shipping. I subjected Amber to the runway experience and she was furious with me. The sweater was too big for her anyway. I'm delighted with the perfect timing of my orchid blossoms. As one plant begins to wane, another begins to bloom. This is my newest acquisition from the plant stand at the Finch Subway Station. It's an indication that in 2 months, the balcony can be planted.
