SMALL Victories!


I'm typing this looking at a used new large monitor.  I got it from my son last night and was intimidated by all the cords and plugs. 

This morning I said to myself, "How hard can this be?  Check where you take the old plugs and cords from and put the new ones in the same places" 

So underneath the table I went, in a Marine crawl, did exactly that and voila, I have a new used LARGE monitor.  Yippee.

On another note, the angel wing begonia is blooming for the first time in twelve years!  It was an itty bitty plant when I got it with blooms.  Then nothing.  Nothing for years. 

Surprise it was just a week or so ago when I headed up to the roof terrace and it was blooming.  In fact, it is still blooming.

Small victories can be just as enjoyable, in a quieter way, then the large victories.

Congratulations! It's amazing what you can do when you decide not to be intimidated. You had such a crappy week last week, that you are due a good one!

very nice begonia. are you fertilizing it?

Babs said...

Yes, Christine, but its not in the best place for the plant. It's in a stairwell with no direct light....

Shannon, thinking of you today and sending comforting thoughts!

I find angel wing begonias to be intimidating. My mama has skill with those. I love them. Beautiful plant
