Hello again. I am happy to be back. I haven't written anything in such a long time. It was once therapeutic for me to put all my bitchyness into a blog. Haha. I have to admit I did write a few good ones back in the day. I wish I had saved them. I have them somewhere on an old hard drive, but I wouldn't know where to begin looking. Think back to Myspace days. I don't know what year that was!
Anyway, I have been working on gardening lately. I have these boxes set up to grow radishes, and I already picked my first bunch last weekend. I used an spare piece of "fiberglass" it's not that anymore, but it's a polycarbonate roofing panel. Anyway, I cut it into strips and bent it to fit into my boxes, giving it a green house effect. I leave the sides open a little bit so it can get fresh air flow too.
I also planted some cucumbers and zucchini this way but in pots so that I can replant them into the ground once they've sprouted. I noticed this morning that my zucchini were sprouting. Yay, success! My goal for this summer is to grow some edible food, cucumbers, zucchini, and the radishes. I also planted some sunflower seeds and those are coming up in the front yard. I hope they do well and get nice big flowers on them.
Next goal, I need a newer car! I hate to sell my truck, but I can't work on it, and no one wants to work on it for me so it must go. I know I will regret selling it, but there's not much I can do for it to make it safer and better. I have been looking at used cars, but they all have high mileage on them! I really want to get something I can get out of town in a few times a year, hell at this point I will take something that can get me to the next town! I like renting cars, but they aren't cheap for a weekend trip and I just need something I can camp in and hang out in. I am leaning to a 4 door hatchback something. They have leg room and are not too big, and gas drinking. I miss my disappearing act road trips. If I could I would run away for the weekend this weekend. I wouldn't tell anyone where I am, I would ignore all my calls and texts. I might even runaway to the closest beach for a few days. My dogs have never been to the ocean. I will just keep saving and dreaming, till then.
Oh, and my lilacs are blooming. They are so pretty, I love the colors. And they smell absolutely yummy! I have 2 different varieties in the backyard, and one white lilac in the front yard. The white one is blooming too, but I haven't taken any photos. I have been watering them with the fish water from our water changes, hopefully they are loving it!
