Mine is just a starter plant.
Someday it will look like this.
I've been working really hard the past couple of weeks so I decided I had earned a treat. I wanted a plant to put on my desk at work so Friday night I went to Fred Meyer and picked out a cute little plant. A Peace Lily to be exact. I love their pretty green leaves and the way the white blooms shoot up out of the center of the plant from time to time.
I picked out a cool bamboo, self watering container that was on sale and a small bag of potting soil. After dinner I got my plant all potted up and ready to take to work with me Monday. Now I just have to do my best not to kill it. I do have that dreaded black thumb, you know.
I kept the little plastic pot the plant came in because I think it will be great to use to start a tomato plant in. I also will be able to use the leftover potting soil to plant my seeds in which I hope to start doing very soon.
Even when you are trying to be "uber thrifty" a few treats every now and then are important for your emotional well being. I don't think we should feel deprived along the way of achieving our goals for the year.
How are some ways you've treated yourself lately?
