The Sweet Potato Cutting

This is my latest attempt at replanting a cutting. I decided to take it off of a sweet potato vine that I had started in my kitchen. The vine itself was out of control and needed to be cut back before I couldn’t see out of the window anymore! Since I have never tried this with a sweet potato plant, I was a bit skeptical, but I am always up for a new challenge. All I had to do was give it a couple days, fresh water and lots of sunshine…
This is what came of it…
Look at those roots!! It took no time at all. I guess that I shouldn’t have been surprised, being that the “mother” plant was almost too much to control. I stuck one of the leaves in the soil of the planter behind it in the photo. Not really expecting anything to come of that, just kind of tucked it in there to be silly.

Healing with the Blues

Trying to come out of that funk… This self pity and lack of motivation has got to stop! Laying quilt trips on myself and being harder on my psyche than anyone I have ever known. I need my Bikram. I am all off and I do not like the person that I am becoming. Think it’s time for an ass kickin, my own that is…

Blues, yoga and gardening, maybe that will kick things back in order? The cleaning is just not working. I am not feeling more centered, if anything I am feeling more torn now than ever. I know that this too shall pass, but seriously, my impatient self was over with it before it began. Missing Dad terribly. Those times when his silly humor is the only thing that made sense… it’s just not the same without him here. Makes me realize a lot about what I really desire out of life. Not this pathetic excuse that I have been living up until now, that’s for damn sure. Going to get what I want before long… it is going to happen. I just need time and healing. And some Blues.
