I thought I'd share some pictures of the Christmas Cactus.....
this was taken today
this was taken a few days ago before 'winter' arrived
This is about the only thing that is doing well from the garden. I pulled up the cucumbers and squashes. Many things contributed to their demise, wind mostly, but I also think they needed bigger containers.
For dinner tonight I made up my own concoction. Browned some chicken then sauteed onions, celery and garlic. Then I added some zucchini and mushrooms. After these all cooked for a bit I added a can of diced tomatoes, a can of red beans (drained) and a can of broth. Seasoned it with Italian Seasoning and simmered for about 20 minuets. Served in a bowl over tri-colored spiral pasta. Pretty tasty if I do say so myself!
The past few days we've managed to entertain ourselves with shopping, dining out and seeing a movie. We've also spent a lot of time sitting around playing games on our computers and reading. But mostly we've been trying to stay warm! Our fireplace and space heater have been kept busy, I even turned on the furnace this morning.
Along with the colder temperatures we've had no sun for days and we have been lucky enough to even have some rain......
I read somewhere that 49 of the fifty states had snow! I'm thinking Florida was the only snowless state. I sure am glad we aren't in any of those other states. South Texas is cold enough and we come here for the warmth.
Winter for a week is quite enough!
