Things are going great in the garden plus the extension of the garden (my house). The seeds both indoors and outdoors are growing happily. I have my very own nursery going on. And I like working there.
Today more seeds arrived and they were planted swiftly. Yes, I'm a bit obsessed, but in a very harmless way :)
It won't be long before we will be able to eat fresh rocket from the garden!
I'm truly enjoying seeing everything grow, it makes spring all the more fun. And it already was so much fun.. can you imagine!
I ordered vegetable seed for the garden and I went and got a truckload of soil at the garden centre. This afternoon I dug my way around the garden (blisters, muscle ache), all for the good cause of homegrown vegetables. This year I will be more successful at growing vegetables! Not a hard feat since last year's harvest was quite pathetic. Hopefully this will be a bad year for the snail...
Did I mention I was happy about spring approaching? So very happy.
I used to not like Sundays, but I believe I'm starting to become a fan. This Sunday was quietly spent at home. Simon had a party to go to, but before he went we played a board game together. Despite some frustration and tears (from Simon) we had fun.
Amber had a lot of homework to do and needed some help.
Even though it was wet and freezing outside I was determined to turn our compost heap. Bravely, I went outside and got to work until I spotted a mouse running off... I needed manly protection after that ;)
The time passed pleasantly and it was nearly time to start cooking. However, there was a nagging thing still on the to do-list. We have a vintage antique old iPod nano, that has been recalled by Apple for some fault that it may have. All you have to do is send your old iPod to Apple and you'll get a new sparkly one in return. We have known about this for weeks, but no matter how hard we looked that silly iPod was nowhere to be found! Very frustrating. Anyway, in the spare half hour before I started dinner I had a look in my sewing room and after digging through a few boxes I found it! I must say that the relief and satisfaction of locating it was almost enough for me. For good measures we did register it :)
I made veggie burgers for dinner that were very nice. I may post a recipe tomorrow. Now I'll have a glass of red and then I'll be off to bed. I caught up on a lot of sleep this weekend and I must say that I like this (new to me) feeling of not being exhausted :)
I started off the new year by making my own liquid detergent. Yes, you read that right. Lately, I've really been into homemaking and making detergent was on my list.
I haven't tried washing with it yet, but I like it already.
Also, I put away everything Christmas-y today. What a great feeling. I would have a Christmas tree just to experience that relieved feeling after it's gone! The room instantly looks bigger and lighter.
We've been experiencing a really mild winter so far and it was a joyful moment when I spotted lots of snowdrops yesterday. There is life in the garden! Spring may still be far off, but it's on its way already.
