Today was spent cleaning the house in preparation for this weekend's book club meeting. I polished the wood furniture in our dining room and living room, dusted, and cleaned and mopped the kitchen and main bathroom. All the while, George and Ginger were quite bored. They spent the afternoon napping.
Here's a piece of good news: I finally got my African Violets to bloom! I bought them a year and a half ago on a discount rack at Walmart. I was beginning to think they would never have flowers again, but after adding fertilizer spikes they're coming around.
They live on a table in our office, in front of the windows. This spot gets really good light and is perfect for plants. I'm sipping a well-deserved glass of wine in here right now, with Marco hanging out on his perch. He likes soaking up the sunshine from this westward facing window, too.
