Insta Friday

Happy Friday! Another week has been whisked away. I think this week we did a good job at making some memories. That is what we are doing every week, right?

Just a fun photo adventure with nothing more than a cell phone camera.

life rearranged

We decided to gill out at the beach with a few friends for Memorial Day Monday. I took these out of the freezer to take along with us. We never opened them up.
On the way to the beach I saw this, which took me back to 4 years ago. One of the friends at the beach used to own this exact style of truck. *sigh* I miss that truck. So roomy inside.
Dear dog, why? This really isn’t your type of thing, but three times now. *sigh*
Trolley anyone?
A little bit of comfort on the way to the beach. What? You pack up two kids and all the accoutrement’s that you need for a day at the beach alone. Oh and my triceps were super sore (thank you gym time).
Okay, so this is not at all my favorite picture, however it does show that my cardigan is done!! It is definitely a first completed garment, in that it is not perfect, but wearable non the less.
On the days when DD is the messiest I remind myself that the high chair is there to get messy, so that everything else does not.
These things. I am thankful that they were there, but they were trashed by the time of the day that I needed them. It definitely let me know that my bathroom is really not messy. 🙂
Onto a new nap time project. I wish nap time worked out daily. I really really do. Oh well. Stitch by stitch, row by row.

I really despise that my cell phone photos always come out dark. It makes these look less bright and happy red than they are. They are from Japan. Hand imported by a friend. They have been here for me since 2009. Took a while to actually get them here. I want them to go into the kitchen somewhere, but not yet certain of where. So here they sit.


Conjunctivitis anyone? No? That is why we are home the next few days. Entertaining a healthy toddler looked like this. Surprisingly crayons entertained her for several hours
I had two other photo’s to add to this. I am guessing that the blogger app is doing weird things when uploading photos. I arrive to my computer to be thoroughly frustrated every time. Must. Find. A. New. Plan. A.S.A.P.
Have a great weekend!!

Recycled garden


Aloe vera, some button flower, cherry tree and cilantro
Welcome to what I like to call my recycled garden! 

I have now had the Aloe Vera so long that I can’t remember what it looked like when I got it. It did start as a small potted plant as did the Cilantro, and Christmas Cactus.

There remaining plants have been grown from seeds. I went through this phase of planting the seeds from the food I ate. So I saved seeds and tried my best to grow them. I do have an Avocado seed planted, however it’s not much to look at right now so no photo.

Lettuce

So you can’t see it in this photo but this is now the third round with lettuce from seed. After this I quit and will move on to something else. The photo to the right is about as large as the lettuce gets and then it just gives up. After talking to a lady at my knitting group she said that she and her husband have a hard time with lettuce. Something about tying it up and forcing it to head.         Ideas?

All my plants are in organic soil, and I use organic fertilizer. No I do not go to a store and buy fertilizer. I use trash! Ha ha, no I don’t compost. Not that I don’t want to but it’s not ideal for apartment life. I use coffee that is not consumed, used coffee ground, used tea leaves, and the water left after steaming vegetables. I have only had one plant complain, Basil. Basil was not a fan of coffee and it went and killed itself … I mean I killed it.

So I will be making two of these in the next week or two and I could use some help. I want to plant edibles or herbs in the top row of both of these, the rest can be whatever.

What do I plant?

One will be in indirect sunlight all the time, but it gets fairly warm. The second one will get more sun and super hot. I would love to hear your suggestions.

Do you have an indoor/outdoor garden? Do you use your wasted items in it?
