Why are you happy today?

Our house is full of houseplants collected over the years. Many were rescues from my husband’s workplace and from neighbours. We always intended to give them away once recovered but, no, we’ve kept most of them so far other than rooted cuttings. With some space left, we thought we’d try our hand at less common variety houseplants. Happy to now have a variegated Monstera. Looking good so far 😄

Thank you…not much chance we’ll give this lovely away either. Looks like there are lots of variations of cheese plant though variegated are most sought after. Probably just a trend now that many owners of such Monstera are chopping them up for propagation to sell.

England win in cricket, almost worthy of "What's got you flummoxed today?" thread ;) but Jesus Christ, what a knock.

 

Records made and broken, a rare sporting moment. (and I'm not even really a sporting guy!)

Janx! Was listening, Root got out and I thought " it's over🙁".

Friend called " meet you at the beach with the dogs?"

Had my SmartPhone with me but politeness ruled... Rumanian friend.. why annoy her with cricket?

Got home, radio still on on the computer.. and I freaked out! Still trying to understand!

Hope I understand before the footie starts later!!

Happy👍

 

Edit: trying to find YouTube highlights- so far- failing!😂

Got this, though!

I'm happy because my " honorary " German nephew in Hamburg , Charly , a history buff and with his own You Tube channel, has just published his first book!

It's about the secret teachings of the Freemasons, in particular the Royal Arch Masonry, and the esoteric, religious and astrological symbolism!

Here,  on his channel, he describes the " making of ", the contents and , hopefully , importance of his book!

If such topics interest you, listen to his presentation ( in German )! 

And, of course , buy the book!👍😊

The lovely young man at the furniture shop today, proudly caressing a kitten on his knee when we walked in. He showed us the rubbish container in the street someone had thrown the May kitten into.

He will keep the cat❤️❤️❤️

Excellent. I have a neon red suitcase myself and can always spot it from afar. Better than black.

I did the same when I recently traveled. It was at someone's suggestion, probably you. Then, when they lost my luggage, as they do, I had a photo for them.

Thanks for the flowers - but that wasn't me
