A friend of ours was so disturbed by our lack of a tree she gifted us with a dwarf Alberta spruce with appropriate decorations. I've since removed the decorations and that cute little spruce is growing up a storm.
Check out all the new growth
Our Christmas cactus bloomed heavily
That's pollen dusted on it's petals...
And the book?
I went a bit crazy at Amazon last week and ordered three new books. Absolutely outrageous for
How About Keeping Our Mouths Shut?? (which is almost impossible for me)
Another book I ordered is "The Way We're Working Isn't Working", which I've mentioned before. It was a library book and I was quite impressed. I gave it to my husband to read (a workaholic) and managed to keep my mouth shut (we women talk way too much) the entire time he was reading it.
I never questioned him (a miracle) or worse said, "See - I've been telling you that stuff for years" (waaaaay not good!) After reading the book for about a week I witnessed him closing down his office at a somewhat normal time and actually sitting in the living room reading a book. Hmmmmmmmmm. Still, I said nothing. About two weeks after that he started quoting stuff from the book. Whoooooooooeeeee! Still, I said nothing.
At the end of last week I mentioned I wanted to re-read parts of the book but it was due back Monday. Veeeerrry nonchalantly he said, "Maybe you should get us our own copy from Amazon." Still, I said nothing. Aren't you proud of me?
It's out in paperback now...
