Aren't these pretty?
A friend brought them by the other day and I am so excited to have them. When he describes the flowers these cacti put out, I simply cannot wait to see them. But I also cannot decide where to plant them.
So, I am on the look out constantly in the jardin to find the right spot.
Evidently they will trail and get pretty big.
Now there is some rumor going around this house that I am not the boss of much, but I do generally get my way when it comes to el jardin.
I am also looking for a location for two beautiful pink mandevilla I have. I thought I had the perfect spot and I set them on the the ground in those places. I had not even stood up and Senor was right there..................there is a drain pipe under that one.........oh, i didn't know that...... so does that mean i can't plant it there............
He just gave me the look and walked off.
So, I am looking for a better spot. Do they need sun or shade?
Senor is doing a fine job around here because if I were the boss I would be doing just exactly what he is doing.
And that is putting in the rest of the portal sub floor in before I go crazy because of the dirt floor and the horrible rebar out there.
If he were not doing the floor I might have him deported, so it is a good thing he knows without even asking me what to do next.
And look, if you can see, there are only four more column sections to go and it will be done.
I love this story I am going to tell you now.
Whenever things are not moving as fast I want them to or I think I should tell Senor that I should be the boss for awhile I think of this.
Once, a tourist from the states dropped by to say hello. I did not know her and we had only met that morning at one of the campgrounds where we both happened to be taking a walk. Well, I was actually there taking a hot shower. Remember those days, when I used to take my showers at the campground because we did not have hot water?
Well that afternoon she came to visit and she said,
"I am so sorry for you, that you have to live here like this."
This is royal camping at its best, I tried to explain to her.
She would have none of it.
I thought she might cry, very emotional woman she was.
But, she said she had to leave and go back to the campground and try and think of something to cook for her husband's dinner because he was sick and tired of tortillas and tacos and beans and what a shame that's all you can find to cook in this town.
Now, doesn't that just make you laugh? I am practically choking on my giggles!
Any minute I will be rolling on the floor. It is my favorite story in the whole wide world.
Okay now, so gotta go and make sure Senor is on track with the floor.
Then I gotta find something besides tortillas and tacos and beans to cook for dinner.
we all know who the real boss around here is, don't we.......notice that is not even a question.
