Cracked

Hearing it hit the hardwood floor, I cringed as I bent down to pick it up.  Yes, as many times as it has hit the ground, this time, it cracked.  It serves me right though because I just changed the case from an Otterbox to one on the clearance rack in Walmart. 

When I bought the phone, my granddaughter, then 4, liked pink and purple so I bought the pink/purple Otterbox.  Fast forward 6 years.   About a month ago, I spotted this cute black and white striped case.  The price was right...$3.00 and it was definitely more stylish.  All was good until the phone fell...this time.

Filing a claim with my provider's insurance was easy enough because within minutes, the techie was scheduled to come to the house to replace my cracked screen.  Arriving earlier than scheduled, the young man walked in, thanking us for giving him such good directions.  

Since I'd answered the door with my phone in hand he immediately said, " So this is the phone.  Hmmmm...I believe this is going to be easier than we thought.  I don't think your screen is cracked.  I believe it's only your screen protector."

Telling him how I'd switched out cases as I watched him peel off the protector, I was absolutely elated when he handed my phone to me, saying there would be no charge since he didn't "fix" anything.  The screen protector had done it's job well (yes, I will get another one!).

Katniss

Yes, Katniss and I have been a team one full year.  A year ago yesterday, as I baked pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving, I saw her running back and forth across my stonewall and deck.  Her tiny white paws made her so visible against the lightly frosted surfaces and while on the phone with my daughter, we agreed that I had to catch the feral kitten. I remember thinking I have to catch her.  She'll either freeze to death or be eaten.

Trapping her in the soft-sided, blue kitty carrier that I bought at Walmart along with the litter box, liter, and kitten pate, she screamed and hissed bloody murder once trapped.  It was hard to believe that something so tiny (2.1 lbs at her first Vet visit on Day 3) could be so fierce.  Starving and riddled with worms and bacteria for months, I doubt she would have survived.  After all, she was the only one in the litter of five born in an abandoned rabbit hole located in my neighbors raspberry patch that made it.

Cramped

Receiving this orchid for my birthday nearly two years ago, it has the most beautiful flowers when it blooms.  As you can see though, it needs re-potting. The "word", according to Google is:

Tip: Orchids like to grow in small cramped places in trees and between rocks, so don't worry if they look pot bound. As a general rule re-pot every 2 to 3 years, but only go up one pot size at a time.
