Hello my fellow Campfire peeps! This is Jen from Today’s Blog. I had hoped to write this on my laptop but it won’t let me so here we are on my phone. I am behind in my writing obligations so I am trying to catch up.
I’m still unsure as to what to write for all of you. I see many guest posts that just seem to flow. I had great hopes and ideas when I volunteered to guest post. Now that the time has come they have all deserted me.
I sit and look around the room looking at all the memories. I could write about any of them. So maybe I will start there.
I have lived a very unconventional life. It suits me well. People walk into our home and there are plants all over, Halloween decorations up year round, books and movies filling shelves (with a few discrete piles on the floor here and there) and animals. We currently have a turtle (Barbosa), a snake (Calypso), mice, a fish (Blue Maui) and a dog (Stella). (I had to rewrite that last bit. I am used to saying dogs. I lost Moose last January and then I lost his sister Essie this January.)
I have an eclectic collection of plants as well. I am growing an orange tree from pips that I saved from an orange I ate. I also am growing chamomile from seeds that I got from a friend in Great Britain. I have a large agave plant from Texas in an equally large pot (I live in northern Michigan so I tend to put things in pots that I want to keep year round). I am also very excited about the mini garden I started a few weeks ago that has taken off. I have cucumbers, lettuce, two kinds of green onion and habanero plants. My green pepper plant that was all but dead not only revived but I have a good sized green pepper growing!❤️
I see by the clock that I have been at this a bit and should probably wrap it up. I am very excited to meet all of you so please feel free to comment! Cheers!
