I'm not so sure our cactus likes it too much. I haven't figured out why this cactus grows here anyway! Oh well, it's hardy - which this pictures shows.
The kids are outside throwing snowballs at the windows and then hiding. They have to be freezing their butts off! I think they are growing weary of the inauguration. I can't say that I blame them. I'm tired of seeing all the hoopla and that horrid gold dress with the even more horrid green gloves and shoes.
We will probably be heading to Florida in a day or two. RLs Dad has been moved to the hospice house and the doctor has given him three to five days. Such a hard trip to make. Please pray for his Dad first and then the rest of the family. Also, please pray for us to have a safe trip. Thank you.

This is the sun! R and I were out while the boys were still in Florida and the fog was horrible! We could actually look directly at the sun - it looked just like the moon at night. The fog sure made driving interesting...
As for my boys, well, they got home Tuesday night. What a sight for sore eyes they were! They worked their butts off in Florida taking care of RLs Dad and also doing whatever errands needed to be done around the house. Although his Dad has gotten weaker, he is still well enough to be home. Hospice has started their visits this week. Luckily his Dad has a good attitude about it all. He hates to be a burden, but we all need help at some time or another and we all have to help at some time or another.

I cut them in 5x5 squares, following a really cute pattern I bought at one of our local quilting/knitting stores. I lined the bag in black.
Here's a funky purple button I found at Joann's.
This isn't a great shot, but at least you get a general idea of what it looks like. We had to hang it up because Gus is a wee bit nosey and decided he needed to rummage through it. Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought him back - I guess that's true in Gus' case. Hopefully today will go much better and he won't be as needy. Who am I trying to kid?
