Acer bonsai in Training…
I haven’t been around much this week, and for this, I do apologise.
I have been so busy; there literally hasn’t been a spare moment, but it has been a fun-filled, action-packed week. I have managed to clear some outstanding jobs that had been haunting me for weeks and also a few that I just had to tackle, just for the hell of it.
There has been carpet shampooing, cementing, garden blitzing and actually housework. You name it, and I have probably done it this week!
Even with all of this going on, I have managed to write up a storm, and the WIP is way past the midway now. Two of our books have new covers, and the marketing of these is ongoing too.
I am hoping that the new low-dose course of steroids that I have been taking has been the miracle maker, for I feel so much more like the me I used to know. The arthritis is still a menace, but somehow, not as depressing as it used to be.
The most amazing part of the past week has been the sheer joy of accomplishment, something that has been missing for a while. I even took the time to enjoy my bonsai instead of the usual duty visit.
The image of the acer at the top of this post was the one that caught my eye yesterday. It is far from being a proper bonsai, but such promise! This lovely acer is quite rare with its variegated foliage, and I adore the scarlet shoots of the new growth…
I wonder what I will get up to over the weekend…
Wishing everyone a glorious weekend!
