Highs & Lows

Here is a rundown of what my highs and lows were this week.  It is a blog party that was started at one of my personal faves: Life, Crafts, & Whatever.  Its simple, give your "Highs" & "Lows" of what happened the previous week.

For the HIGHS...

Since the first plant I bought from Home Depot died in a matter of TWO days, I returned it and got a new one (different kind this time) and it is loving its new home.  The cool thing about these flowers are that they "sleep" at night, closing all of their petals and opening back up in the morning when the sun comes out.

I started painting again.  I haven't done one just for fun in a loooong time so I picked up a brush on Friday.  Still a work in process,  A LOT of cool things to do to it yet

Today Spencer and I went to our local farmers market and look what I found...FUZZY EYEBALLS!!  It's real name is Rambutan, an unusual tropical fruit that I had for the first time in Bangkok, Thailand.  They are so yummy and I have never seen them in the states (They are not a shippable fruit).  I about fell over when I found them because I have not had them since the last time I was in Thailand in 2007. YESSSSSSSSS!!!

And for the LOWS....

We found out that we can't have Direct TV like we wanted because the stupid HUGE satilite would take up our entire (already tiny) balcony. Ughh, so we settled for Netflix on demand on our Playstation3

Found out my cousin was hurt a few days ago, and now has two broken legs.  He needs surgery for one of them because it is so bad.  Praying for a safe surgery and a speedy recovery.  My dad & friend Michael also recently had knee surgeries, praying for the same for them.

I hope you all have had a fantastic week, 


  1. Okay, I was being totally lazy tonight. I saw your post in my google reader, and then I couldn't find it when I wanted to comment on it. So I was like "Crap, what am I going to do now?" And poof! You posted on my blog, and saved me a ton of time, having to search for it.

    I do not have a green thumb at all. It's worst, compared to my mother, who's backyard looks like a botanical garden. I can't keep anything alive, I'm cursed.

    That painting is awesome! I can't wait to see it when it's completed.

    I said a prayer for your family. I have a really bad knee, it sucks when something that should work, doesn't.

    Thanks again for linking up, chick. <3

  2. do you just paint for fun or do you sell your stuff? it looks awesome!

  3. Love the painting it is awesome... free hand? It is cool! Awesome on the exchange on the flowers! I am lazy and am horrible about watering! Funky looking fruit... not sure I could eat it, but looks neat! So sorry about your cuz! That is horrible! Hopefully everyone has safe and healthy recoveries!
