Hey ya!  How is it going?  It’s Thurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrsday!  😉 (I know…I know. It says Wednesday at the top…because I’m writing this to you on the night before. 😉 )  Aren’t ya glad.  I thought so.  So…burn…baby burn?  I know….I know.  Strange.  I just thought that I would share my little aloe vera plant with you today.  She is so cute.  She deserves her moment of stardom.

When I was a kid, it seemed like mom always kept an aloe plant around.  When I was seventeen I had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic and wound up with hives.  The only thing that would help, in the middle of the night, was to rub that goop out of the aloe plant on the rash.  If you have never had hives…count your blessings.  I don’t EVER want to go through that again.  So…the aloe, has a special little place in my heart.

About a year or so ago, our pastor’s wife gave me a little aloe vera plant.  I was so excited.  I know, for me, it’s the small things.  It has actually done really well.  She says that they thrive on neglect.  Sounds good to me.  😉

Pretty little aloe.

Pretty little aloe.

Are you guys good with house plants?  Do they drive you crazy?  Were you a kid during the eighties, so they bring back bad memories of hand-made macrame plant hangers and plants that grow all the way around the room? What was up with that anyway? I think that my granny had one like that. It’s kinda sweet if you think about it.  Who cares if it’s the in thing or not? See if you can get your plant to grow all the way around the room. She is still excellent with house plants.

I hope that your Thursday is excellent, Dirt Roaders.  If you burn yourself…stop by and I will give you a hunk of aloe.  Scratch that…just be safe.  😉
