Some days, I go to Andrew’s school and pick him up and bring him home here, to spend a couple of hours with us. He gets so excited about that, and I love having him here and tending to him. I get some snacks for him and a glass of milk. We play Checkers or Hungry Hungry Hippo. He loves to watch Tom and Jerry cartoons on the TV. Most often the television doesn’t have them on at the time when he comes over, so I have ordered several DVDs from Amazon and any time M goes to Big Lots or K-Mart, he looks for them and brings them over. Here he is watching one of those episodes. He is so focused and enjoys
the cat and mouse antics a lot.
My orchid plants are just going to town. I have so many of them full of buds and blooms. I love them, and each time a bud appears on the stem, I get so super excited.
I am so grateful that in the thick of winter, something as beautiful as this blooms inside the house. And guess what, I saw yellow crocuses blooming out in the yard yesterday. Forgot to take a picture. The poor plants are so confused. Last two or three days were wonderfully warm, but today it was bitterly cold. So I am not sure if the crocuses will survive the 20 degree temperatures of tonight.
I will keep you posted.
