Haiku – He’s getting engaged

It came as a shock

But it really shouldn’t have

A new tale begins

My ex husband of 16 years called to tell me that he’s getting engaged this week to his girlfriend of the past 3 years. Although, I think it was very thoughtful of him to let me know as we still have many mutual friends and our family members still talk, I’m still processing this news.

I wish him happiness, but I want that kind of happiness for me too. It’s time to reassess where I’m at and where I want to be.

Five things that happened this week

My orchid finally bloomed again. I was give. This orchid two years ago. Of course it was blooming when I got it, but then the blooms died away with the stem. I kept watering it thinking that it would bloom again, but it didn’t. The. I noticed that the roots were cramped so I changed the pot and put fresh orchid mix in there and now look! I have a pretty orchid just in time to brighten things up on this yucky winter day.

Otto is just about done. I just have to touch up the background and give I’m a couple coats of varnish and he’s good to go. Next up my little Zelda.

Monday was a kitty cuddle kind of day. I woke up and could barely walk leaving me on a heating pad on my back while the kitties and Zelda took turns making sure I was properly cared for. No worries though my back is better, at least for the most part anyway.

Harper took most of these home, but I will have you know that I accomplished the task of eating all the cookies she left behind. This is an accomplishment that I not so proud of, but they were yummy after all.

The last item I don’t have a picture of but I am happy to report that I am once again able to park my car in the garage. It is just in time for this ugly snowstorm too. Unburying my car is not something I am very fond of and I have been doing a lot of it recently.

I haven’t been that diligent this week with my posts, but I vow to pick it up next week!
