Re: One project > cuttings


They grow continuously here, Kitty, if you're talking about that plumey asparagus fern.

Dies back ?
Hmmm, I wonder if I should be letting them die back so they can rest rather
than pushing them to grow continuously.

I'm fortunate in that I don't have to bring my foxtail in. It dies back,
but then is fine if I remember to water it. It may be just because it's
indoors and will be fine once spring gets here. Anyone?????

Some people enjoy company. I remember back as a kid when we had moved
to
Fort Wayne and we'd go back to Chicago to visit for Cmas, we stayed with
my
mom's relatives and were always welcomed (which is why it was so
embarrassing for me that my dad lied to them) but it was always only for
a
night. Where my sister & father got this idea of visiting for weeks on
end
is beyond me.

Our Cmas is tomorrow.  Today I make the birthday cake - Ma's ginger
cake,
the one with 8 tsps of spices and a cup of molasses.  Made fudge and
cookies
yesterday. We have to eat early because my niece has to work tomorrow
afternoon. The plan was to have corned beef, a favorite of Sam's (and
mine!), but Megan and Maureen won't eat it, so we will have chicken as
well.

I need to clear a space in the garage to work on my cuttings today. All
those cuttings of Acalypha, Coleus, Persian Shield, and Osteospermum
have
outgrown their 2 inch pots and we are moving up to 4 inch for the new
year.
A few were already in 4 inch, not sure if they're ready to move up yet.
My
two huge, overcrowded pots of Silver Squill are in full bloom.  My
foxtail
fern divisions are growing oddly. Has anyone else tried to overwinter
them?

Wow, well, I can certainly relate to the whole "family" thing. Mine
drives
me nuts. Or at least they used to. Now I just don't give as much of a
hoot
anymore. They know that when they come to visit they are only welcome
for
48 hours max. Although, now that my sister and her family have moved
to
Illinois I'm sure our visits will be longer. Which is fine, since I'll
probably see them all of once a year. My mother told me they feel as
if
they have to invite themselves to my house. Which is pretty much true.
And
then I make it clear that they can stay overnight. You'd have to know
my
family to understand ....... But good luck, and at least the 5th is
coming
up quick. How's the party planning going????

It's my sister from Alberta. I understand she wants to make the
visit
longer to get her money's worth out of the cost of the plane ticket,
but
when I visited her, I spent 3 days (granted - this was the only time
I
ever had an opportunity for a free trip via frequent flier miles, so
it
didn't cost me anything) . She came Dec 10 for a memeorial service
and
wants to stay through January 5 so we can provide her with a
birthday
party. The last time she did this, about 4 years ago, she played her
Sarah Bernhardt about being unloved and all that, but she is on her
medication now, so she has been easier to deal with. She knows I get
stressed out over a house guest for that long so she insisted my
other
sister had to take her for half the time and Pat reluctantly did
take
her for 10 days. (those 2 would secretly love to rip each other to
shreds)

I am more the Marlena Dietrich of the family and am finding company
quite tiresome. Maureen's quirks are really getting on my nerves and
I'm
afraid I don't hide it well.


Oh well, the 5th is right around the corner and things will
eventually
get back to normal. Thanks, everyone, for allowing me to air my
familial
warts.

I missed something, WHO is staying with you for a month? That's
normal?
I'd
freak out after three days.

Donna,
It's not funny. this is her lifestyle. She's sitting around
reading
until 3 or 4 in the morning, then sleeps til 2pm. I don't mind
too
much
as it gives me my morning to myself, but I hate tip-toeing
around
my
own
house. She thinks visiting for a month is normal. My idea of a
visit
is
3 days max. I know I sound heartless, but I guess I'm a creature
of
habit and everything is in disarray. I am forever doing dishes
and
emptying trash while it takes her 3 days to move her suitcase to
her
bedroom.

Well it sounds like one heck of a party is happening over at
Kitty's....
sleeping in till 3pm.... ah, the good old days :)

Donna


It's easy to get so busy between computer work, Christmas
baking,
and
other "important" stuff, that the house doesn't get cleaned
in
winter
either. I really need to vacuum but my visiting sister
doesn't
awaken
until about 3 pm and somehow, housecleaning doesn't really
occur
to
me
in the evening.
