First Impressions of the Cayman Islands

Recently I had the chance to visit the Cayman Islands! For those who don’t know, it’s a small island located in the western Caribbean, and is a British territory. This means they speak English, but it’s British English. With a Caribbean accent. This means that though you can understand them, it’s not always easy. They use words I’m not used to hearing, and sometimes when they spoke quickly, I just lost track of what they were saying. We went on a tour and the tour guide was Jamaican, and I would say I understood about 50% of what he was saying. It was an adventure, that’s for sure. Continue reading

2017 Garden Update #3 – Winding Down

As summer ends and we enter fall, my garden has started to wind down. Only a few things are still growing, so this will probably be the last update for the year.

My zucchini never made it. It might have been too wet for them, I’m not quite sure, but I never saw a single baby zucchini. A few of the plants grew quite large and there were a lot of flowers, but nothing happened after that point. Continue reading

Visiting Augusta

A few weeks ago we went down to Augusta to visit friends. I’d been before, but like most places, there’s always new things to do and areas to explore.

What I didn’t realize is that Augusta is so much hotter than Atlanta. I thought we’d have similar weather, since it’s only a few hours away, but it’s a few degrees hotter, and that makes a big difference. We went on one of the warmer weekends, and it the afternoon you just stepped outside and immediately started sweating. It was terrible. Continue reading

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!

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.
