2017 Garden Update #1

As promised, here’s a garden update and some pictures!

So as I mentioned originally, I bought some kale for my bunny. We got two little plants and we put them in a pot on our deck. I’m not sure what was happening, but it wasn’t doing great. The leaves were turning brown, like it was getting maybe too much sun, or not enough? In the end though, it didn’t really matter, because someone else was eating it. My dad ended up moving the kale down to join the rest of the garden, but when it was moved, it was eaten, and I ended up with just little stalks and no leaves. Now, however, it’s starting to grow back, so I have cute little kale stalks.

My kale is coming back!

Learning How to Wakeboard

Wakeboarding was always one of those things that I thought looked pretty cool, but never thought I would actually get the chance to do. But a few years ago, as we started going out on the lake more, I realized it was something I could do, and it was something that I wanted to do. I didn’t necessarily care whether it was wakeboarding or waterskiing, but I knew that I wanted to try it. I didn’t expect to be an expert or do flips or anything like that, but it seemed like it could be a fun pastime on the water.

Learning How to SUP

A few years ago I took an intro to stand up paddle board class, and it was fun. We basically just learned the basic stroke, and got to practice in a small area. I learned that if a strong breeze blew through, you could be swept away. And I learned that it wasn’t that hard. When I learned the first time, it was March, and the water was cold. There would hopefully be no falling into the water, and there wasn’t. I was shaky, but I felt good as I paddled around, getting used to the stroke, finding my balance. Continue reading

Planting a Garden

I ended up planting a small garden this year, and now I’m even more excited for the summer to come!

I’m not really a huge vegetable fan, but I’ve always liked the idea of planting a seed or small plant and having it produce something you can eat, so while I probably won’t be doing any of the eating, I’m excited for the growing. Which is going well, at least so far.

We went to Pike’s to get some small plants, and came back with a small assortment. Continue reading

Lists Lists Lists

There are a ton of things I need to do right now, which for me, translates into a ton of lists. Which is funny because I have all these lists on my laptop, all these sticky notes, some carefully organized, others not, three deep, so I can’t even read all the lists anyways. Not even kidding. Then there are the lists that get lost because I have too many stickies. Lists I only look at every now and then. Yet I keep going – making more lists, telling myself that one, one day!, I will get it all done.

Spring in February

The weather has been so nice recently here, and by that I mean most of February was in the high 60s and 70s. Which was great. All the plants started to think spring was already here, and if you drive through Atlanta you can see everything in bloom. It’s hard to tell it’s still technically winter. Though this week it supposed to be cold, and there may be a frost, I’m counting it as spring, and I’ve already gotten out and about.

With warm weather and more sunshine, it’s easier to get outside of the house to exercise. Continue reading
