The kingdom of heaven....

The kingdom of heaven is like....


1. Getting home from work and immediately changing into all fleece! Fleece top. Fleece pants (especially if they happen to feature kittens inside of mittens). Fleece socks.

It's SO chilly outside lately. I love to get home from work, put on my pjs, and wash my face. Then I put my fleece robe on top of everything. It is such a delight to feel warm and safe.

Cozy time. Heavenly.




2. Miraculous Christmas cacti! Last FEBRUARY (I cannot believe it has been that long), I received a few clippings of a Christmas cacti from a kind lady who I visited in her home. For the first few days, I forgot to bring the clippings inside from the car. Then I did bring them inside, but I didn't have any potting soil. So I just shoved the clippings in a glass with some water.

For no good reason, I never planted the clippings in soil. I just kept them in the glass and changed the water every week.

And look what happened! It's blooming! I really need to get this thing in some soil. The roots are really healthy.

I was so shocked to see the first bloom. Now I see that there will be blooms all over the place. Does anyone have just a SMALL amount of soil I could have? I don't really want to buy a whole bag. I just need a lil' bit.

Plant surprises are so fun and heart-warming. My orchid just shot out a new stem last week, so I'm excited to see blooms on there again soon.

Where have you witnessed kingdom moments lately?
