Plumeria Flowers and Gifts from New Friends

I love our gardener Tom, Tom Takeda, he's such a good, kind man. I respect him so much! Anything I try to do for him he turns around and returns to me ten fold, it's just like what they taught us in school when I was little. I brought two little plumeria plants back from Hawaii for him and for his wife, it was a pretty humble gift, and the next time I see him he's carrying this enormous plumeria plant. I didn't realize that he breeds them at his house and his wife was so touched by my little gift, apparently they didn't have one of the colours I gave them, that they wanted to do something nice in return. They gave me this huge blooming rainbow plumeria, the color I like the most of all of them, and one I couldn't even find when I was there. You know sometimes when you're feeling defeated or worn out and forget how incredibly beautiful life is you have to remember the sweet little things that happen like this. I think miracles and goodness are all around us, you just have to see them for what they are when they come to you.

I found this picture at this site, they make Hawaiian hairpics, those cute little flower guys that you tuck behind your ears, and they have a few pictures of Hawaiian flowers there. If you want to see photos of every type of plumeria, there is also this awesome site, remember to scroll down so you can see all of his pictures. This is the type of plumeria that Tom and his wife gave me.

Oh and that's not all. Yesterday I was visiting the kitties in the back cat house and thinking that I wanted more ceramic bowls for them. I collect Texasware and I saw that Esther had put two of my bowls out there for the cats. They don't make the best cat bowls because they are light, they tip over and break, heavy ceramic is always better. Then today Irma and her daughter Jackie came to work and they had gifts for us, ceramic cat bowls that they had found at the Ninety Nine Cents store that are so cute and Jackie had made me a little gift in a bag, two frogs and two lollipops. I feel so lucky today.

Little Lucilla is feeling all better now. She's back with the main population of cats and making her usual amount of fuss and trouble. I can hear her meowing and fighting with the other people right now. She's just super sensitive, bitchy, and vocal, just like her grandmother. I'm so glad she's up to her old level of disagreeable, it means she's doing really well.
