New Leaf Day

Bertha leaf #4 is starting to open up! Go Bertha!

I’m looking forward to the day when Bertha has so many leaves that we don’t notice when a new leaf grows.

Bertha Update

Is Bertha taller?

On January 26th she looked like this (taken with my IPad, trying to use about the same angle each time):

On January 31st she looked like this:

Today, February 22nd, she looks like this:

It does seem a little taller. Our baby is growing. Now let’s sprout a new leaf, kiddo! You can do it! We believe in you!

Half Way There

My lunch break is coming to an end. I am halfway through the work day. Halfway through my first day back in the office.

I had planned to bring my AirPods Max with me. I forgot to pack them. I’ve been using air buds like some kind of caveman. I also forgot that they centralized the trash barrels. Instead of having a barrel at every desk they have one in the middle of the room. My lunch trash is just sitting on my desk. I’ll chuck it out the next time I get up, but when will that be?

It’s sunny and 50 degrees out. Practically Spring, right? I made sure to open the blinds in the bedroom so the plant clipping can get good light today. I’m hoping there will be a new leaf opening up when I get home. Fingers crossed.

There are more people here now than there were the last time I posted. Still no one close enough to make me nervous, but still. I’m Covid safe, but not as Covid safe as I’d be if I were working from home. Sigh in frustration.

I got a phone call from the weight loss clinic. They confirmed my appointment for Monday. Yet another teeny tiny hurdle crossed. Monday should be a huge hurdle crossed. I’m nervous, but I am okay with it for now. That’ll probably change once I see a doctor holding a knife above my guts. Crap.

Okay. Back to work.

Time Lapse Video Idea

I’m thinking about this, but it’s dumb so I doubt I’ll do it.

After all of those burning candle time lapse videos I’ve posted since Covid came along… what if I do a really, really long time lapse of the little plant cutting from a couple of posts back? Say I put my iPad in front of it tonight before I go to bed and let it record a time lapse for 24 hours and see if we can actually see the new growth grow.

What do you think? Would it show anything? Do plants only grow when no one is looking?
