Hello.. come on in for a visit! I have been swimming here at LA Fitness for many years. I go for a solid hour of swimming on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I was visiting Gracie a while back and was heading to the pool and I asked her if she'd like to go along and she said yes. She joined that day and we've been meeting there to swim ever since. I had taken my iPhone in with me intentionally to take this photo. See Gracie? :-) She's the one in the right lane waving at us.
We are enjoying a run of sunny warm weather, it's very nice for someone who doesn't really enjoy winter. :-)
In fact, the Daphne Odora shrub is budding out!!
I noticed that some bulbs were coming up quite nicely in our big pot that holds our red banana plant. I'm not sure it survived the winter. I think these are tulips and one is a hyacinth from last year!
I planted this bamboo at the back end of our rock terraced area and I've been so happy with it. Here it is in January and it's still green and lovely. I wish I knew exactly the "breed" of this bamboo - it's not a runner type, it's a clumping type and it's stayed very nicely in it's space, but it has long arching canes so it's pretty "big".. but I love it. I have 5 different varieties of clumping bamboo and all 5 have behaved very nicely and stayed in their spots. I have a black, this one, a blue fountain, golden and a dwarf variegated.
I just had to show you the results of my DIL Kristi's organizing efforts. Yesterday she said.. this cabinet needs organized. We go.. great! Today she did another cabinet over the stove. And now.. now.. she is upstairs working on a bedroom! The one that we have been storing things in.. :-) Yay for Kristi!
I am going to be making dinner for us all. I am making a very unique meatloaf that has a mixture of applesauce, brown sugar, cinnamon and sumac on top! I will take a photo and let you know how it turns out. I had it at my friend Judy's house in Los Angeles many years ago and deemed it the most flavorful meatloaf I'd ever had. I'm doing roasted or fried potatoes to go with it and mixed veg. Wish me luck! How is your weekend going? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
