I repotted the house plants and used some Klaytivity rejects. This is my favorite, imperfect only because of a hairline fracture.

I love this delicate plant, and only hope I can keep it alive. These ferns grew wild where I went to camp as a child in the sierras of Córdoba, so I could not resist adding it to my plant purchases last Saturday.
Three grandsons were there as mom picked out her choice garden plants. I had so much fun playing with them or I may have come home with more than I could handle. Even so I haven't finished planting everything yet. Of course, rain most of the week has not helped.
I did get some cell phone pics of the boys, but someone had been playing with the photo features and this is what I got.
I love the expressions, but it looks like someone spilled paint on the poor kids.
Zion warmed up to me after a bit and started playing a game where he would walk away, then turn around and run into my arms time and time again. Reminded me of the 'jump hugs' I used to get from his daddy back in the day.
Monday at Chef's we enjoyed a plated meal of salad, chicken, sweet potato and an arepa with house dressing.
Oh, and the garnish--pickled ginger and orange.
Another day this week I made a mean salad of tuna, tomatoes, green onions, red pepper, and corn over a variety of greens from our indoor solarium hanging garden.
I harvested such a range of greens and herbs from only one tray, so tasty when freshly picked.
Thursday I attempted something new--an oil painting class! We practiced different techniques for making different kinds of leaves, buds and flowers until we ran out of space and time. Here's what my first practice canvas looked like.
