plant lady

Almost every weekend I’m at the nursery staring at plants and flowers wondering which would do best at the house. We’ve got some minimal landscaping going on, it’s all low maintenance and survived the few hard freezes we’ve had without any problems (go plants!) I’ve got a few medium sized potted plants (rubber plant, lamb’s…

It’s a beautiful day here in Northeast Florida. We’ve been cleaning house and getting things done. All the windows are open and there’s a breeze fluffing up the curtains. The cat is mesmerized, the dog is napping on the couch and I just ate my lunch; a bowl of quinoa, black beans, scallions, mushrooms, tomatoes,…

seek magic, every day

File this under: Things I do when I should be sleeping. My first thought was to put together a set of Spring postcards, and I couldn’t decide on the colors… naturally, I did all the colors. Then I ended up animating the color shifts, and adding music… because I’m insane. Enjoy! click here to download…

This was the song I sang (quite poorly) to myself today while I was trying to figure out what to do with that extra hour we got from Daylight Savings time or as I like to call it…the “the only reason I am on-time for work this week” time. Since inktober ended I’ve been catching…

joie de vivre

Glad we made it to Friday and that tomorrow my time will be my own. I planted two mini magnolia bushes (shrubs?) the other night. YES, night. Tuesday night I was feverishly digging in the dirt and the dark, planting shrubberies, little purple flowers that I don’t know the name of and blindly spreading mulch…

bloom

I’ve never been great with plants. That’s what I tell myself, anyway. Last weekend I went ahead and got three separate potted plants and much to my surprise they are thriving. I bought a rose bush, impatiens and some other mix of purple and white flowers. It was a bit daunting for me to choose…

I woke up in a cheerful mood this morning, in spite of myself. I’ve had some pain the last few days and I was feeling a bit loony but I’ve taken ibuprofen every 4 hours for the last 2 1/2 days and I’m at least mobile. I’ll start my next Whole30 tomorrow. After 2 relapses…
