Does this look familiar?

For those of you who live with a technophile, these photos will look very familiar.

So our receiver was dying. What is a receiver you ask? Well it is a large box full of wires that you plug many more other wires into. This large box then controls all the other large boxes with lights and wires that are hooked up to your TV. All these boxes full of wires seem to produce even more wires that need to be plugged into a power strip. And this is what you see when you look at our TV. WIRES!

I am so tired of wires. I tried wrapping them with fabric tubes specifically made to cover wires but my husband says that bundling all of those wires together puts weight on the connections and that is bad. So no nice looking fabric covers for me. They are very nice too! A deep wine color with matching snaps. Oh well.

On the plant and flower front, there is lots happening. On the back porch the citrus plants are thriving in the heat we have been having. Currently I have lemon, key lime, limequat, citromello, buddha's hand, and grapefruit. The lemon and grapefruit were started from seed and the rest came from Logees. Which is a super place to get plants. They have great service and pack their plants really well. I also have most of my orchid collection out on the porch in a shady corner so they can enjoy the heat and humidity. The few I have inside that are in bloom are these.

Most of the orchids outside have new growth on them and some have even produced little babies called keikis (kay kee) which is Hawaiian for "baby". They are cute little miniature plants that develop on the nodes of a flower stalk.

Not much new to report on the fiber front except that I finished the back of the rust colored sweater and started on one of the sleeves.

P.S. As you can see by the comments at the bottom of this post, my husband says I forgot to complain about the remote's. To that I will say; We have one UBER remote that controls most of the components. Other than that we only have the Tivo remote to contend with. I have no complaints about the remote situation in our house (o:
