Pretty picture: assorted Saintpaulia cvv.

I'm writing this on Monday afternoon. On Monday morning, I woke up with a headache so bad I was basically unable to function (yesterday's post about the Tetrastigma was one I'd started on Sunday, and had mostly finished), which is something that happens to me occasionally. Some kind of sinus thing, I think. So I don't have a lot to say about the above picture. But there it is.

I'm assuming that by the time you read this, I will have recovered and everything will be back to normal again, but I suppose we'll see. Meanwhile, it is time for me to go lie on the couch and watch TV.

Hope you're feeling better soon, Mr. S.

I am. It was basically just a Monday problem; Tuesday was more or less back to normal, though there were elevated levels of grumpiness for much of Tuesday, which were especially high Tuesday night. I don't know what actually happened, but that sort of thing does happen to me occasionally, where I wake up all sick-but-not-sick. I've never figured out what causes it, but a decent night's sleep usually takes care of it.

So we can expect another typical yummy post tomorrow, yes? Yes! My unbearable morning headaches occur when I forget to put my biteplate in at night. Are you a teeth-clencher?

Your are dedicated to the plants! Get some rest.

Hopefully your head is feeling better. If it's not then go and see a doctor. I really like African Violets. I had a few plants years ago but lost them to mites. They seem a little finicky.

Pat Moore:

I do tend to clench my teeth when I'm stressed, yes. I asked the husband if I grind my teeth at night, and he said occasionally. So that might explain it.


I don't like them as much as I once did; they're not very good at managing themselves when I don't have time to do it. But they're okay. There are worse plants.
