Soothing

I need a nap.



















This Ti Leaf is very alluring and soothing to my eye. It has so much white in the leaf it is very slow to grow for a Ti. I had to hide it from view to be able to get one big enough to propagate. In the nursery they will sell before they even have real chance to root and grow out. I was lucky to save this one for myself. Where ever it came from is now a mystery to me.

Perhaps its original location will return to me in a dream.

I need a nap too.

Yes, that Ti leaf is soothing to look at -- it has a very good balance of color.

I really do need a nap -- I'm back on the overnight shift again (10pm to 6:30 am) for the Christmas season. We have one more week with mandatory overtime (six day work weeks), then the volume of parcels will drop way down as it does every year from January through March.

Oh yeah, that reminds me -- I've got to check the winning numbers for last night's lottery drawings -- Mass Cash and the multi-state Mega Millions game. I've had enough manual labor for this lifetime!

Oops -- Last night's drawing was for Cash Winfall -- and I didn't even win a small prize this time:(
Mass Cash and Mega Millions are going to be drawn tonight.
It's a very small investment, so even if the odds aren't good -- it's still worth it to have that hope. And ordinary people really do win those jackpots almost every day -- so why not me too, right?

Indeed why not you?

I wonder if there is a lottery in NC? Hawaii has resisted most gambling so far.

Yes, North Carolina has Power Ball

As you can see from the map, we don't have that game in Mass, but since they have it in every other New England state, it's a short drive for us to play it. Generally, people in Mass only go out of their way to buy Power Ball tickets when the jackpot gets huge -- unless they live right near the border of one of the other states.

I can't believe I'm not in bed yet -- I'll be lucky if I get six hours of sleep now. I need more self-discipline I think.
