…it’s been a week.

AND WE’RE ONLY ON TUESDAY!

I would like to take a break from my faltering mental health (last night was spent crying not only in my car on a social distancing approved drive but also in the bathtub), stressful work week, and pandemic to share one of my favorite things with you.

MY PLANTS!

I credit my 2016-2017 ex’s sister for stoking my interest in all things green– she always had the cutest succulents…although sometimes they didn’t look very healthy. But it’s my sister-in-law and best friend, Jess, who have been my biggest enablers. And I love them for it.

This afternoon was beautiful. I also knew my order of potting soil, planter for my zz, gardening gloves, and prayer candles (for plant summoning, of course) were coming.

So when I mercifully clocked out, I made a beeline for my flower bed to weed a little before the goods arrived.

Because fuck this being stuck inside all day.

Thankfully, it didn’t take long. And thankfully, Dad beat me to the UPS truck because the box everything came in was obnoxious– and dirty (I know, first world problems in the middle of a pandemic).

With gloves, soil, and my planter here, IT WAS TIME FOR THE REPOTTING!

The initial plan was to repot my zz plant. I plopped her in a pot I had last year because I didn’t really have a lot of money to buy something more her size (aka I was unemployed). I never really liked her in it.

BUT THAT WAS ABOUT TO CHANGE THANKS TO A CUTE TERRACOTA PLANTER FROM TARGET.

…I love you, Target, even though you end up with most of my money.

Gathering everything up, I headed outside.

Before

And then magic happened!

After! (Please ignore all the shit in the background- I practically live at a salvage yard so good backdrops are hard to find)

…but then magic kept happening.

I ended up repotting all of my plants, except for Antoinette. I ran out of soil and caffeine. I’ll get her next.

What’s superrrrrrrrrrr exciting is the little jade offshoots I’ve been trying to propagate FINALLY sprouted some roots.

Success!

I figured I’d go ahead and put these sweet babies in some soil. They won’t be staying with me- each one will go home with one of my sisters once the pandemic calms the fuck down.

Now we wait for adoption day.

You’re cut off now. No more plant porn because supper is almost ready. I’m exhausted. And I didn’t take any more pictures. So you’ll have to wait.

Hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy.

More posts to come!
