July Garden Update

Sunday July 06, 2014 comments   

My potted plants have been getting bigger every week. Here are just a few of them. The Nasturtium flowers, cherry rose jewel mix, are mostly coral and orange. I’m not too disappointed because the colors have a really nice tropical feel to them and are still different enough from the typical jewel mix. The Baby’s Breath recently grew out of control. I had to snip so many stems off in hopes it would grow a bit less wild. It was hanging all over the other plants.

I also have enough Italian Parsley to cook with for the rest of the summer :O

Relaxing Weekend

Sunday June 29, 2014 comments   

I’ve been extremely busy this week. It’s one of those weeks where no matter how much you try to minimize your stress you just can’t without purposely cutting off obligations. And sometimes I do just that. I simply say “no” or don’t follow through; for the sake of my sanity.

So this weekend I’ve done what can only be described as “nothing.” I’ve left the house once to pick up some groceries. I’ve eaten ice cream, binge watched some TV, taken multiple naps, ordered pizza, laid out (which is a fancy way of saying I put on my bathing suit and some tanning oil and took a nap outside,) and played video games. It’s been one of the most enjoyable weekends in a long time.
