In November, I posted about some strange growths or strange pods on my stapelia gigantea. I have been tending them carefully to see what would happen. While I was in Nebraska for Christmas, something DID happen:
One of them opened up! They’re seed pods! How cool! They have fuzzy “parachutes” like milkweed seeds. Interesting. Maybe I’ll try to grow some…
Wednesdays are busy these days. Right after school, I do confirmation class. In the evening I’ve been leading the Advent services. I’m reading a sermon series that is put out by CPH, so I’m not writing them, but it still takes some energy to give them. By the time I’m done with my day, I’m pretty tired.
When I got home last night, it was dark. I sat out on my lanai for a bit. The Christmas lights are blue, but they almost give off a blacklight kind of feel. It really makes my petunias glow. I like it 🙂
Yesterday was a grading day, as usual. But not as usual, the grading didn’t take much time at all, because last week was a short week. Yay!
I stayed at school after grading, and did some lesson planning and other assorted paperwork and computer work. I really enjoy writing lessons. I’ve invented and adapted a lot of stuff for Religion and Language Arts, and have whole curriculums now. It’s nice to be older – I’ve had a lot of years to develop this stuff.
I got home with plenty of daylight to spare. I spent a little time out on my lanai. It’s cooler these days – only getting into the seventies during the day. Nice!
My hibiscus plants are blooming. Both are orange. One of them is solid orange with big flowers. The other one looks like this:
