When Life Gives Us Lemons, It's Not Always A Bad Thing!
I have lemons, two of them, on my lemon tree! I bought this little lemon tree at the end of the season last year, for about $2 on clearance, just because I thought it would be a pretty indoor plant. I assumed it was an ornamental and wouldn't bear fruit, but last week I discovered the baby lemons. I suppose it's unlikely that they will hang on to maturity, but I sure hope they do!
I'm not working today because my employer doesn't want to pay me holiday pay. It's a shame, because today will be the day that most of our hospice families are able to visit. Many patients are unresponsive when I visit, so the families are the ones I really want to see, but many of them work during the usual week. I offered to go in with regular pay, or no pay at all, but apparently that's a big No-No.
So instead, I am enjoying my Independence.
I'm hoping to do a little cleaning (because a LOT of cleaning is needed!), get caught up on my laundry, and work on a quilt square that has to be done by a deadline that is rapidly approaching. There is an "excessive heat warning" again today -- it is too hot outside for me to think about doing anything else!
