I played the piano for church yesterday. I haven’t done it for a while because Nathan was home from college. I appreciated the break, but it made me a little rusty. Yikes!
When I play the piano, I play LOUDLY. I am aware of it, but I just can’t seem to stop. Instead, I just constantly use the soft pedal. During the sermon, I looked down at my feet and saw that my foot was still there. Ha! I guess it’s an unconscious habit now…
I went to the garden center yesterday and went a little crazy with the succulents. But in my defense, they were pretty unusual. And they weren’t that expensive. And they made me happy.
The first succulent is a gasteria. Unfortunately, I don’t know the species name. There was a big one of these, and it was so weird and rough… it looked like stone. I got a small one so I could watch it grow.
The next plant is a euphorbia medusa. It looked so weird I had to get it. Apparently, it will get weirder looking as it gets bigger. I can’t wait!
The last succulent is easily my favorite. It’s a Hen and Chick plant, but colored in a way I don’t think I’ve ever seen before. The latin name is sempervivum jowan. I love it!
I saw a charge on my bank account that ended up being a crossword website I bought a membership in last spring. During distance learning, I wanted my students to be able to do a crossword I built there. I forgot to unsubscribe. Ugh.
When I see things like this, I remember Janet (from college) telling me about how her banker brother said: “People like this will never have any money.”
I unsubscribed yesterday. Goodbye, monthly charge of $5.
