The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

The Little Cactus in the Window


I brought this feller inside and he seems to like the indoors.  Flowers popped out.
Its flowered before.  I think it was more just the timing when I brought it inside than anything else.
I was planning to be in the desert at this time, but I don't feel Sinbad is up to any road trips now.
His traveling days may be over.  Time will tell.
So I will enjoy my cactus here at home.

  8. I hate to hear this news about Sinbad. I know you want to be out in the desert, but you also want to be a home with your baby. I hope he perks up a bit real soon.
