Is it too early to be thinking and planning my garden? I woke up with the sudden urge to browse all the seed catalogs even though I told the mr I was not going to buy any seeds this year. I’m going to depend entirely on last years seeds and seed swaps. No need for more then what I need. So that is where my head is at right now. Seeds. Growing all the lettuce. Tomato varieties galore. I am starting to really crave dirt, like playing in it, not eating it. But I am craving coffee too so I should do that soon before I loss my mind.
Lets see, what did I do this week. Nothing really out of the norm, unless you call ice skating my way around the outside world not normal. (it was not normal) Everyitng has been covered in ice and I don’t know how many times I have nearly smashed out all my teeth or broken all my bones from almost slipping. Sure I could have chosen to not adventure out on icy iciness, but who would I be if I was not outside. Anyway, besides ice world, we had the littles come for dinner and fighting (with each other, not us) Barb came for dinner and all the college age gossip our brains could handle. The mr started a new hobby of weaving baskets (already he is fucking awesome at it) and also decided to make more creepy ass doll head cars. I did some painting, cleaned my studio all up and nice, make cupcakes, bought new running shoes, returned new running shoes (not the right size) We worked, we played, we spend as much time outside during the warm snap as we could, hoping all the ice would melt and being rewarded with more ice. It was basically a basic week without any extravagances. No real incidents (besides me cracking my head on a metal bed lift bar and leaving myself with a nice egg bruise on face), no crazy stories (besides some of the stuff Barb told us but that is not mine to tell). Quiet and semi clean. Keeping it average and that is good for now.
I have very little in the way of plans so far for today. I’ll hit the gym, library, and probably the grocery store this morning but after that, empty. The mr is going to be in and out of the house all day working so I will probably try to get some work done too. Or not. I am not opposed to keeping things mellow. Maybe a long walk down by the river or into the trees. I could use some trees right now. Options open with no expectations other the I expect to do something.
My internet browsing for your taking.
-Important coffee stuff. Know what you are drinking. What's the Difference Between Light and Dark Roast Coffee?
-What. The once a month that I actually clean my water bottle is not good enough….Wait, You Need to Clean Your Water Bottle *How* Often? Well then.
-So much truth. ON STRUGGLING TO BE AN ADULT. I am always shocked whenever I realize that I am not 18.
-Would you ship your luggage ahead of a flight? I have been thinking about the best way to get a butt load of camping shit to a destination without paying a million and half dollars. This might be it. Skip the stress.Ship your luggage.
-New 'unicorn' mantis species found in Brazilian rainforest. The new cool unicorn.
-Do you eat breakfast? I don’t, unless you count as much coffee as I can get in my mouth, but that is because I am not really hungry in the morning. Sometime I wonder if I would be a better person if I ate sornething earlier in the day. But then I think I don’t really care to be all that much better and after reading this, I don’t need to eat. Breakfast Isn’t Pointless, But It’s Having an Identity Crisis
-Cat Power. All the feels. Every. Single. Time.
-Tiny houses have a dark secret. I guess some people just want to live in a tiny house but store all of their shit in a regular house. Hum.
-I am not ready for an animal right now, but this I could handle. You Can Build Your Own Life-Size Cat Using These Blocks.
-Why Do Elephants Have Trunks? Why Do Giraffes Have Purple Tongues?. Also good to know that if I ever get a cut, just have giraffe lick me and all will be good.
And pictures from the week.
