A Special Kind of Ed….

Okay.  Bid news in the Orchid Dept!!  *Stop rolling your eyes*  First, I MY MINI CATTLEYA IS IN BUD!!!! See?

Second, the sheath on my other orchid is opening and I can see the buds!  (Pictures coming tomorrow on that.)
And finally, I’m growing my first set of double-leaves:

I also came across this tonight, and I may need to find various ways to raise $80.  http://www.alohaorchid.com/detail.aspx?ID=910
That sale definitely will not last forever, so if I’m gonna act, I have to do it quick.  I don’t know.  Guess I’ll sleep on it.
Finally, I realized at work today that I’m going to have to ask for at least one digital photo frame for Christmas.  I think I have an addiction to taking pictures….of everything.  Is there a support group for that?
Sorry this post isn’t my usual witty-self.  I’m pretty tired and just had to share my Orchid news!

Me Time…

Hi there,
I found WordPress today through my Best Friend and her blog and I was impressed with the “Bells and Whistles” so I thought I’d give it a go. 
For those who don’t know me I summed myself up in my profile…hopefully pretty timelessly (is that a word?) Anyway, I’m always changing in my interests and passions….meaning I always like the same things, but what I Love are the things that can change even from week to week.  I’ve always been like that, and I have no clue if it’s normal or not. 
So, in the meantime, I can tell you at this moment I Love Orchids.  Cattleyas specifically.  I have two, ‘Candy Tuff’ and ‘Hawaiian Passion’ and three more on their way.  I also caved and bid on another last night.  I’ll know Thursday whether I’ll get it or not.  I don’t think it made my Hubby happy, but he’ll be okay. 
My other Love at the moment is reading.  Specifically “A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle (for the 2nd time.)  It’s really helping me ground myself which is what I need right now.
“The Secret” by Rhonda Byrnes is also a favorite of mine and “Ask and it is Given” was really great too.
And finally, I Love my camera, taking pictures of my daughter and nature and editing them with www.Picnik.com.  I can thank my best friend Kimberly for that addiction too. 🙂  You can see my work to the right in my Flickr widget. 🙂
I picked up the knitting needles again and am slowly working on a Monkey for my up-coming GodSon (Due July 10th).  I was really into knitting over the winter and although I still really like it, I’ve temporarily lost a bit of interest.  I think Knitting is turning into a seasonal thing with me.  I won’t ever not like it though.  That’s for sure.
All in all I have ADD regarding my interests, and as I wrote in my profile, although even I sometimes find it annoying, I also think it keeps me interesting.
Guess that’s all for now!
