My Batteries Need Charging

April 30, 2019

Good morning.  Tis cloudy today, and there are some puddles.  The rain drops on my car tell me that it has been raining on and off.  According to the weather app on my phone, we will have rain for at least the next five days.  Where is all this rain coming from? 

Yesterday, Pogo and I went shopping and bought a lot of new pots to plant in.  By the time we got home though, my energy was gone.  I did not get to do any actual planting.  Maybe I can put in a few today.

Sad to say, I'm not the Energizer Bunny.  I get bits of energy and they don't last for long.  Thank goodness this not start till these past few years.  I led a very busy life so this "slow down" is a new norm for me.  I bought a box of Wheaties the last time I shopped for groceries.  I've eaten almost the whole box of them, but so far they haven't done much to improve my lack of energy.  I guess I just need new batteries.

Several years ago, we planted a scrawny little blossoming cherry tree in the yard.  Every years, it grows a bit taller and produces more flowers.  This year it's loaded with pink blossoms.  I took some photos through the kitchen window.  Once these blossoms pop open, this tree is going to be agorgeous sight to behold.

It's amazing just how much pleasure one little tree can give us.  The folks in D.C. are so lucky.  They have lots of these stunningly beautiful trees.  Trees do so much for us.  They help to keep the environment healthy and they provide homes for us and all wildlife.  Take care of the ones you have.

On one of my other shopping trips, I bought a really cute little plant.  It was covered with tiny orange flowers.  I don't know what it is, so if you recognize it please let me know. 

Isn't this a pretty plant?  I don't even know if it is an annual or a perennial.  I'm just imagining how simply gorgeous this will be if it grows into a huge plant.  Wowsie!  I could plant a whole lot of them.  Oh my!  Be still my heart!

Yesterday, I did call the Library to request a one on one appointment to get help with my new laptop.  The earliest appointment I could get is next Tuesday at four p.m.  I'll take it.  Windows 10 appears to have a whole system of pass words and to me it is confusing.  I already have my own passwords and I don't really want any more of them to remember. 

I suppose once I finally learn how to navigate this new system, things will be easier.  It's really sad that it has to be so difficult.  I'm also surprised at the lack of places to learn how to use it.  I  think I'll call the college again to find out if there are any summer classes that address this subject. 

Now I think I'll have a look at the new plants waiting to be planted and see what I can do about it this afternoon.  Wish me luck.  Maybe my batteries won't run out before I can get a couple plants in pots.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

It is disappointing to find out that we do have limits to our energy nowadays. But we just have to cope with it.
I think your plant is a kalanchoe and i have a link for you of how taking care of it.
Don;t know even if I can put in a direct link here in the comment, so you will have to write it down, sorry.
