Weekend Cat Blogging # 35 and WHB # 18

Weekend Cat Blogging and Weekend Herb Blogging are featured together due to my son and husband not feeling well. Little Logan has been punky since early Friday afternoon and my loving mate woke up feeling punky on Saturday. Keep them in thoughts and prayers to get well. Thank you. -- Heather

It's time for weekend Cat Blogging. Visit Kiri and Clare to see more WCBlogging fun! You will see plenty of pretty cats and many yummy recipes too! If you would like to join into the fun of Blogging about your favorite feline -- post to your blog and send in the permalink to Kiri. Am sure he will pass on the message to Clare. He really looks so debonair!

She raced me to the chair! I kid you not! She loves to be in my lap while I cruise the net looking for things to make. She simply curls up, purring resoundingly and gets mighty upset when her "perch" has to get up and move. I get "reprimanded" often -- she will bound on her hind legs out from under furniture and bat at my upper thighs and hands as I pass through the living room to the kitchen -- or from the kitchen to the computer room.

It's also time for Weekend Herb Blogging # 18! Kalyn's Kitchen is our weekend Herb hostess. Visit her blog to find out about many interesting edible herbs -- both in season and out. Soon, it will be time for spring planting -- and many new things will be "springing up" at a Blogspot near YOU!

Here I am showing off my "impromptu" cutting of my looking glass begonia. I found the branch broken off my main plant after I had already "butchered it back". The kids or a cat had knocked some magazines off the desk --- above where I had placed the plant.

The branch lost all of its leaves and I thought it was dead until I pulled it out of the water container I had plopped it in with some other cuttings. All those you see are brand new ones, actually 7 in all -- though you can only see the 4 largest ones. The leaves are about the size of my thumb - so they are not very big yet.

And it doesnt seem to have any roots either. So, am trying something. I purchased the container at a dollar store -- placed a gallon freezer storage baggie in it -- filled it with potting soil and water. Plenty of water to make kind of a slurry. And placed the "branch" on its side and half way down into the slurried soil. It was outside only long enough to take the picture you see here. Most of the other cuttings I had taken off the parent plant now have roots and are doing fine in a container on my computer desk. Not sure why this one doesnt have any roots. Wish me luck in my attempt to get another plant going!

Many blessings Everyone! Smile and have a wonderful weekend.

Ok, I guess we are back and it looks like everything is ok. Whew. I was sitting at the computer and half my blog disappeared from the screen.
