Avocado On

I started an avocado seed back in July. This particular avocado seed was planted with the hope that I could keep it growing in its pot, could spare it from the curious fingers of my son Sergio. Well, I have succeeded so far and mi aguacate is growing well. My house is not good for growing plants indoors – not enough windows and eaves that are too wide. I have no windows that face either the west or east and my house is situated so that little southern light enters my house.

I have settled this avocado on one of my favorite pieces of furniture, next to a window that receives some northern light. I must only remember to open the drapes. Some books keep her company while she sits in the window and while we wait for my curious children to return home.

We struggle on in waiting. And this time, in the hopes that a little someone does look too closely, with an excited imagination as tiny fingers pull the skinny plant right from the pot.

I'm just a skinny girl with a lot of hair and a couple of stories. I'm 26, married, and have two very active, sparkly-eyed babies. My mother lives with me so I've got my best ally and source of wisdom here, too. Everything I do is for my family. We like to garden, paint, start projects, read, and watch a little bit of Netflix. I'm working on my cooking, parenting with patience, and learning how to love life where I'm at. Though I've abandoned my degree three times in two different states (yes, I said three times), I have listened and watched and picked up a couple of tips. Most of what I write is entirely non-fictional because I let life spin the tales. I'm ready to learn more and am excited to meet others on the same path. This is to serve as a record of what I've done. All pictures have been taken by me, unless otherwise credited.
