Happiness is Homemade Link Party #103

Messy Messy Fail - For months I've nurtured and carefully looked after three leaves I saved from my failing African violet.  I researched and slowly let the leaves take root in a tall shot glass on my north facing (should have been east facing I think but anyways) window sill.  Refilling the glass when the water line would get below the fresh root system.  They finally grew enough so that I could put them in a small planter.  Two of the leaves did not make it, but I had one strong one left.  I made sure to refill the self-watering planter it was in before leaving for our 2nd Christmas with my family.  Upon returning, I found that the dirt in the planter had completely dried up and my strong little African violet leaf - shriveled up.  So much for that.

Tidy Victory - The new sleds are here!!!!!!!!  It's so exciting to be able to invest in a hobby that for now, hubby and I, but later our whole family can enjoy during the winter months.  It's amazing, when you step on the sled the whole machine sinks from the unbelievable shock system - no more standing up to take the bumps on the trails, woo hoo!
