I crocheted a few squares. I pretty much think I remember the pattern now. I made so many tiny squares that my arms and hands are in pain. Growing older is not a good thing when your hobby involves using your hands. Especially when the hands, well my hands, seem to be the first thing that is starting to go.
We need a new front door. Since the day we moved in we knew that we would eventually need to replace it. It is a wooden door and every year during Monsoon Season it swells so much that not only does it not close but once it is closed, it gets stuck. The door has other issues as well. It hangs crooked and because of that you can see the sky peeking through the gap at the top of the door. The panels on the door are separating from the actual door so square cracks of light have been starting to peek through. The other day, the door was stuck. When trying to open it, the door jam cracked in half and it tore the trim and some paint off of the wall. It looks just like someone kicked in the door. So, we started on our quest to find the perfect new door. A few days later, the door knob broke off. Which is most definitely a sign telling us that we need a new front door sooner rather than later.
Oh look! Another photo of Ziggy. So, I kind of named my plant Ziggy. Ziggy the Zebra plant. I hope that he doesn't die, especially now that I have named him. It would be very sad if he ended up going the way of Fred the Fiddle Leaf. The little guys are the same ones that I got back in March. They are just as happy as can be. I believe the time has actually come for me to replant them.
Went out to shop for a new front door. 106 degrees sure does take a lot out of a person when you drive around in UN-air conditioned discomfort. Especially during the hottest part of the afternoon on a day with a heat advisory in effect.
That's 3-years ago! It is currently my oldest living plant. I repotted it last July and I don't think it liked it very much because it is a lot smaller than it used to be. In fact, I just looked back to find an original photo of it and it's actually quite a lot smaller and wimpier than when I originally brought it home.
That's okay, it's still a cool plant and I love how the leaves are not smooth but full of crinkles and ridges. They collect cat hair like crazy though and they are very hard to keep clean. But, I can live with that because it still looks cool.
I had planned to take photos of an oncoming storm. But then I got caught right in the middle of said storm and ended up with no photos to show for it. Storm clouds from a distance look amazing, but not so much up close when rain and hail end up blocking the view. So, kitty photo it is!
I pulled out an old crochet project that I haven't worked on since the beginning of 2014 and now I cannot remember all the important pattern details. I can't remember what patterned I modified and I didn't make a note of any of it on the project's Ravelry page either. I mean, isn't that what Ravelry is for?
