A Splash of Color

My Christmas cactus is blooming. I don’t think it has ever bloomed at Christmas but it’s very pretty no matter when it blooms. I love the bright pink color. It always makes me feel happy when I look at it.

Temperatures here this morning were mid 20’s with a heavy frost. It has warmed up already to low 30’s and the sun is shining. I think it will be a nice day. We will be doing school as usual, then we have some wood to unload. We also need to go into town to get some chicken feed. Thank the Lord, we have once again sold enough eggs to pay for the feed.

Jess and Katie are doing well and big brothers are adjusting nicely to having a little one in the house. Katie seems to be (as of right now) a very content little girl. She sleeps very well at night, 3-4 hrs between bottles. Amazing! David will be going back to work on Thursday. He took a week vacation during Katie’s birth.

Well, it is almost time for school and I have clothes to hang out. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  1. Your Christmas cactus is beautiful. I noticed it was getting ready to bloom last Saturday. I brought the geranium in that was planted out front and it has bloomed. I will be so happy if it blooms all winter, and to think I was just going to let the frost get it! 🙂 I am loving our daytime weather. We go out right after school everyday. We have been using the chicken feed you told us about since Oct. 26(I’m trying to see how long it lasts) and it is working great. I am thinking about giving our older layers away, but I haven’t asked what Quentin thinks about that yet!

    Have a happy homeschooling day. 🙂

  3. What a beautiful Christmas cactus. I am so glad to hear that they are adjusting well. I know the third one was the hardest for me to adjust to.

    Have a wonderful day with your family.
