I hate having to do this.  I hate it more than anything in the world.  I already did it once and the fact that I’m still in this place just…

I’m not out of the woods yet.  Please reblog this, even if you can’t donate, to help me get the word out.  If I can make it until October, the strain will drop, but until then…

Had a home visit from some Catholics, due to the trying-to-get-out-of-the-hole-I’m-in thing. The older man kept staring at my books, which made it a bit hard for me. I honestly expected him and the other woman to walk out because it’s very clear I’m not christian.

But they didn’t. There was a quick question about if I’m part of a church, but that was it. They gave me something like $300 in gift cards — gas, groceries, petco — and a bag of base household essentials. They said they’d talk to their group about getting me through the next two months with my rent, and that they would come by again. They complimented my intelligence and my capacity for resourcefulness. I cried quite a bit.

Love people. First and foremost, despite differences of opinion and personal creed, love people. That is an affirmation I am constantly coming back to, and I’m grateful for that.  I made it through August, thanks to all of you and your generosity and kindness. I’ve sent thank-yous to everyone, and I will continue to genuinely thank everyone going forward. 

Two more months to go…

My garden, by request.

From left to right — an experimental “planter” made of a comic book, growing mustard greens; watering cup; paprika peppers; chives (hard to see), red onions in the red planter, stevia and mustard greens in the blue muffin tin, gourds, green onions in the blue planter, two bowls of California poppies, Hungarian Blue breadbox poppies, and the aloe plant Mum gave me, nicknamed Ragtime (“Aloe, my Ragtime gal!”) 

The “terrace” is really just a glassed in room about the size of a small walk-in closet, and it has no direct climate control, but it’s nice and humid most of the time, so the sprouts seem to be doing ok.

Cacti and succulent plants are very forgiving. They are plants that survive in almost any situation and need very little care. But they still can die, even the cactus, so if you are a plant killer by default then you’ll love this craft project.

You will need:

  • Decorative pot.
  • Flat river stones of varying sizes
  • Green acrylic paint in several shades
  • White permanent marker, or nail polish
  • A decorative pot of your preferred size,
  • Spacer so the pot is not empty. Floral Foam is a good choice. Packing peanuts would also work. Anything that the stones can rest on.
  • Small, pretty decorative stones to fill in the spaces.

Instructions:

  1. Paint your rocks in varying shades.
  2. Dry completely.
  3. Using reference photos, add any cactus-like markings to your stones.
  4. Dry completely.
  5. Arrange the stones to your liking and enjoy your work!
