Happiness Barometer

at Casa de Canterbury in November, 2016

at Casita de Cardinal this week

Even the miraculously still alive 70th. birthday plant is happier in its new home. 

Just saying.

Beat the heat this weekend, cyberspace amigas this side of the equator…or stay warm to all our amigos in Capetown, South Africa where our good friend Dr. Saskia visited for three weeks recently and almost froze to death. According to her, everyone wears coats all the time because there is no heat in any building she ate, slept, shopped, or did research in. Brr. I must only visit South Africa in their summertime.

    yes indeed, that plant is quite happy. I don’t know what they are called, but I always have adored them because their green leaves have puppy dog foot prints on them.
