Garden Dreams

Standard

Yup it’s the last week in January and all I can think about having a real garden to plant in this year.  We are going to have drought conditions in most places and strange wildfires in California and Oregon currently.  There are other things trying to distract me like the Syrian conflict, shootings in the U.S., the Winter Olympics but with all of the problems out there I just want to grow something.  

I was asking my friend about her gardening plans and she let me know about another friend who was looking to split some seeds and order through the same company.  She also said that another person was wanting to do a Start exchange.  So of course I went crazy and created a spreadsheet in about an hour and copied and pasted planting and seeds for the right month and dreaming up this great network.

After taking a few bits to the grinding stone with the input of some folks my spreadsheet was done.  I think my crazy was a bit too much but I am just so excited about having a garden this year and not just pots.  My hope is that I can just get a few things to grow and that I can harvest a 3rd of what I can put in the ground.  

Good luck everyone and never let anyone tamp down your excited feelings about gardening if you do it will never grow. 

How to Exercise Your Human

Apparently I need to get a Purrsonal trainer to get in shape. Thank goodness for cats and dogs everywhere helping us humans get healthy enough to take care of them.

Lady Bug

Lady Bug

Okay so I got a truck but when I opened up the package it had gained a level and became an SUV. This is Lady Bug and she has great gas mileage, lots of room and it was cheaper than the trucks I test drove. She was very comfortable and easy to maneuver on the road.
What do you think?

Make up your life

Okay everyone who knows me is aware that I love make up even if I don’t wear it every day. This is a tutorial that I can actually do so I wanted to share. And I think I will try to do a tutorial of my own.

Adventure: The search for a truck…

Standard

I have more than enough planned for 2 weekends to get done but we shall see how talented I am at time management. So today I am going to look at trucks and if things go really strangely well I will be coming home with one soon.  My wonderful friends have been letting me borrow their car for more than a year and they are needing it back on the 1st of Feb.  That is completely reasonable and it allows me to put the focus on what I need and that is a vehicle of my own.

Why a truck?  Well I have always wanted a truck because I just find them  more practical than a car.  When I have needed transport in the past I have only found cars on the ready so that is what I have gotten.  But I now really want to get something for me that is my choice and not my only option.  So I will be looking at a few small trucks with good gas mileage and hopefully a liner for the bed.  Also I am looking for something with an extended cab just for a bit more space for people and my stuffs. As a strange note I have driven a pick up without an extended cab and having the window right behind me was just a bit unsettling for me.  For people in the know or not I have not ever driven a manual but I have ridden several motorcycles in my time and I will be looking into some trucks that are manuals so I am hoping I do well enough.

Please wish me luck in this adventure.

My Sushi Recipe.

Okay this the recipe I use but it not mine per say it is everyone’s sushi recipe to enjoy as they wish.  Sushi is wonderful to enjoy in a lunch for yourself or with friends.  Sushi is not hard to make and is only as complicated as you make it honestly it requires steps and layers like making a lasagna.   So give it a try some time and you might be surprised.
