My father has departed. These two weeks were ridiculously difficult for a variety of reasons and the difficulties continued tot he very end. Just to give you an idea, both ours and Kid 1’s cars got flat tires, so Dad had to uber to the airport, his plane was delayed by 12 hours and he is now flying to Istanbul, which is only 2 hrs from his city, but is a longer and more dangerous flight due to the mountains.
On the professional front, the audio reader is not returning our emails, so we have to move on. What is it with this book?
We are still car-less, because we have an unusual tire size and the magical delivery truck hasn’t brought the right tires yet. I could entertain you with all the weird minor emergencies that happened, but it would be too much, so let’s just say that I feel like I’ve been beaten with a sack of potatoes.
I am taking a day off. I have to.
Here are some pretty flowers instead.
For some inexplicable reason, I am able to grow African violets now. I don’t know if it’s the right window or the special pots I bought, but I ordered these guys on Amazon, I think, about a year ago and all except one are flowering. They don’t just grow, they bloom in clusters and have filled the pots completely.
Having never been able to get African violets to thrive before, I have two questions: do they come in colors other than variations of purple and should I divide them, because they seem to be too big for their pots?
Follow up question, theoretically speaking, are there are other flowers similar to African violets that I could put on my windowsill?
