My Photo


  • a happy, ordinary, middle-aged, suburban woman who paints odd pictures, gardens in a straw hat, lives with the love of her life, is owned by one cat and the ghosts of several others, and walks a little funny 'cause she has a fake leg. She started this website because there's more to life than what we lose, and we need to let each other know what's possible, even if it's only a happy, ordinary life.

Great job on illustrating the blog! Leaves have fallen off of a pepper plant in my classroom and I can't tell why. they are still succulunt and green. Must have been cut by something. But its indoors and I see nary a blemish on the leaf itself, just several vivacious leaves, cut and dropped to the countertop.


That is very odd, Evan. I know not the ways of peppers, but I wonder if they're getting too little or too much water. It seems like leaf drop always seems to have something to do with water supply and root health for the plants in my life.
