By now, my amaryllis has finally bloomed. FINALLY. But you can’t see it, because during the week I go to work when it’s dark out and I get home when it’s dark out and that doesn’t make for very good pictures. So these are pictures I took on Sunday afternoon as the sun was setting. I HAD thought that the darned thing would bloom in time for Christmas.
Then I thought it’d show up around New Year’s.
Nope again. Instead it makes its appearance on a Wednesday when there’s nobody around to see it. Typical.
Other updates for you: we take possession of our house in EIGHT DAYS. Packing is progressing in a haphazard fashion. It’s hard to put stuff in boxes when there’s no place to put the boxes. I cannot wait to be out of this cramped space!
We’d meant to be proactive and get lots of stuff done while our offices were closed between Christmas and New Year’s but instead we both managed to get horribly ill and we’re still not fully recovered, so needless to say that didn’t happen. But I’d like to share with you the chaos that is my living room at the moment, post-Christmas, mid-packing, and post-holiday cold:
And one other thing that I feel I should probably let you in on: like some other women I know I have recently developed that peculiar condition where over the course of nine months you lose the ability to see your own feet. This is also another explanation for why my posts have been a little on the lacklustre side since September because holy moly I AM TIRED.
So some time in early June things are going to get a lot more interesting in our new house (and yes, that’s one of the reasons we bought the place). I’m not sure exactly what this whole adventure means for the future of Ali Does It but we can all figure that out together, right? Stay tuned as the chaos only continues to increase, along with my waistline!
