Much like my knitting pal Esotarika, I'm feeling the need to sew summer tops, summer skirts, and quilt goodies and do other such lighter crafts. My desire to knit has diminished for the time being.
This weekend's warm weather blew in the promise of spring growth so I went to a local nursery and picked up a hanging Fuchsia plant. I had to find a plant to hang from the ceiling in my house because my cat (Bobi) has a not-so-subtle desire to eat/maul/and eventually kill all plants that he can get his teeth into. So I bought this beautiful large hanging Fuchsia and (here's the part I'm proud of) I drilled a whole in my ceiling and hung it! I realize this doesn't seem like a big deal but I'm no expert in the field of power drills and other such tools. So, I climbed on a chair and began knocking on the ceiling. This was my beam finding method, the ol' knock-till-it-doesn't-sound-hollow-anymore, what can I say I'm old school and don't own a stud finder. So I found a beam, drilled a hole with my Black and Decker drill and installed my first hook. Voila!
Then I hung my pretty, pretty plant! Hello pretty pretty plant! May you blossom and thrive in this spot I've chosen for you and may you be protected from the vicious Robert (pronounced Row-Bear, the cat).
I also completely rearranged my living room this weekend. I'm just feeling the need for overwhelming change and growth. Since I'm not in a position just yet to change or grow myself I'm changing my environment and bringing in new growth.
