2 Big Solutions for Vertical Indoor Gardening

I need to make some vertical space for my (hopefully) abundant garden. Indoors. This is in the off chance that my landlords decide to say no to my request- using the backyard for my garden.

This is a photo I took, creeping on my latest obsession. So much potential!
Yes, that is a tree growing in the center there. 
In case of emergency, break glass. Or.... in case they say no, devise an alternative way to gardens inside apartment.

Option 1- Hook up some windowboxes on my wall. I have this obnoxious plate-rail that I haven't found a way to hide. This could be a help in supporting them!

High-Five for Friday!

This week has been somewhat un-monumental. With the exception on 5 things. Which I guess makes it moderately monumental. I think I'm just ready to be finished working for the week, which has dramatically reduced the monumental feelings that I should be feeling towards this last week. So that's that.

If you were wondering....

Monumental Moment #1
     I got a sprout! Romaine popped through the soil only 5 days after planting! And today (1 day later) I saw a squash sprout! Good little over-achievers! I really need to figure out a planting system where I can get these guys living long term in my tiny apartment (sans outdoor space). hmm...

I Don't do Lent.

Jesus doesn't want you to give up Facebook for Lent. Or meat. Or sugar. Lent isn't mentioned in the Bible. So if you break it down it's just another man-made holiday.

Yup, I just compared the thing that's depriving you if your morning donut to Groundhogs Day.

People have been asking lately "What have you given up for Lent?"

Weekend Awesomeness

Good Monday, and St. Patrick's Day!

This weekend was pretty awesome- consisting of a Friday night vegging out (Tom was at an evangelism conference in South Carolina), hanging with good friends and (starting to) plant my urban garden, and ending with a date with Tom after church on Sunday.

Gorgeous day! Picking up seeds at the Home Depot.

Pacific Coast Dreaming

Ack. Sick all this week, I'm blaming the (recently wonderfully warm) weather, the weather I can't enjoy. I'll survive but I'm ready for May 1st.

To quote Mama Cass:
All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey
I've been for a walk on a winters day
I'd be safe and warm if I was in L.A.
California dreamin', on such a winters day.
  "California Dreamin'"
True that.

We're flying to Los Angeles and taking a cruise up to Vancouver, and then Amtraking back to Seattle.

Weight Loss- Introduction

Hello World!

No one really knows this (other than Tom), but I've been monitoring my food and intermittent fasting for about a month. Since it's going well (and the 1 month point has passed without my dying- I know!) I wanted to show the progress and keep some form of accountability online.
