Down: The lunch I brought from home today was too small, and I was quite hungry again by 2:00.
Up: I found a nice veggie and cheese tray in the break room, apparently leftover from a meeting, which made for a nice mid afternoon snack.

Up: I had written a while ago in possibly the gardening thread about my orchid plant that was dying. In my new apartment that doesn't have any cats or other predators, I've been able to keep it in a very sunny window and it has really come back to life!!! A bud formed on the top of the plant (near where I had cut off the old dead flower from October) and is slowly unraveling, leaf after leaf, and I wonder when it will begin to blossom!


down: The plant is staked and today I was messing around with the clips holding it to the stake. I accidentally rubbed the plant up against the stake and broke off a second bud that was forming a few inches below the larger opening bud.

Down: one of my BFF's cats has cancer.
Up: she can afford to have it treated (surgery has been performed).
Down: she may still lose her cat, because it has another mysterious health issue the vets don't think is related to the cancer.
Up: Mallory (the cat) is still eating and enjoying life.

Down: my BFF's father has had another decline.
Up: he was quite responsive yesterday, and seems to have stabilized again.

I'm sorry to hear that Seaboe.

UP: I've hired some landscapers to start clearing my yard of weedy trees and other botanical crud. I told them to just concentrate on one section at a time so they won't get over whelmed.
DOWN: It will cost a lot.
UP: I'm not doing it.
DOWN: I used to be able to stay on top of all it, but that was 10-20 years ago. It's called getting old, Dawn.
