New babies.

Yes I bought new flowers. But I did stay true to my word about what I can and can't buy. These two little cuties are both on the list of "can buy" flowers. The first one ( to the left ) is a mini St Paulia with "double" flowers. The second flower ( the right one ) is a sprout of an Apple Blossom Geranium. Never had one but I've wanted one since last summer.

Now I think there are two or three flowers left on that list. Ok it might be four. I think I have a good chance on finding two of them at the Garden center in Torsång in a few weeks or so. They are starting to gather all the Geraniums they're gonna sell this spring. There will be about 300 different kinds, I read about it on the site. Dangerous but very awesome.

The queen of the house.
Our most gorgeous cat Bella. So shy and scared when she first came here. We would very much like to know what she's been through before we got her. Based on her actions and reactions we suspect that she's been abused in some way by someone. But even if we knew, there's nothing to do about it now. We are very happy to have her and it's awesome to see how much better she's doing now.

Poor baby.

I have a cute mini Orchid here that has been living with my mothers Orchids in the living room. I got it last Christmas (2011) from my granny. It's been doing quite well up until a little over a week ago.

I noticed that the leafs looked a bit funny and wrinkly. I picked her up and apparently she's lost almost all of her roots. There's just a 1 cm small fresh root still alive. Most likely she's had a bit too much water. That "pot" she's standing in is not very good in my opinion. Even though it has a hole in the bottom, water has a habit of not draining out of it properly. If I get her to survive, I'll find her a better one asap. Poor little one...

There's also a small update on the other tab up there. ( Points up on the page. ) "In My Window". ;)

*Huff Huff*

I feel... exhausted. Even if I'm only doing simple things, I get tired fast. By simple I mean taking a walk or something like it. I wonder if it might have something to do with my low blood pressure. I should look into that, see if I still have it or if it was just at that time. Anyways.

The reason I'm tired today if because I've carried my heavy wardrobe, and a lot of other furniture that was in the way. Since I'm living in a fairly tight space right now, it's good too use what little space I have as good as possible. That probably means I shouldn't squeeze in 15 flower there.

What ever. The wardrobe fits perfectly. It was quite the workout to carry it over the yard tho. And up the stairs into the hallway, then down the stairs and into my room. And that was after we dug it out from under a ton of furniture out in the storage where it has been until now.

But I'm happy with the result. Better space for my clothes. Easier to take care of the flowers, and a tiny bit more floor space. I do wake up from the flower light now when it goes on in the morning. But I don't see that as a bad thing. We'll see if I change my mind in a night or two. :-P

And yes, ofc I didn't to this by my self. My mom helped me carry it and move the other furniture. But I didn't want to stress her body with more pain so I asked her hubby to help me up and down the stairs. Now shes hurting a bit more than usual, I'm starting to hurt a little...

And her hubby... he's down with a migraine.
Ain't that a way to end the day.

Planting a seed.

It's time to start thinking about the summer and what I want to grow this year. I'll need to make a list. Just the thought of it makes me happy. :) I need to go through the seeds I've saved from last year also and check if the seeds I took from plants look like they're usable. So much fun to do.

It's just a little sad that it's colder here than where I lived with my ex. You do notice that the summer is shorter and cooler. Might not be much but it makes a noticeable difference when growing vegetables and flowers. Good thing we got the greenhouse up last summer. Yippie. ^^

I have a feeling it's going to be quite full in there. It's already getting full in my room. I can't complain, but I have to do something about it. I need to make some rearrangements for my clothes and doing so I'll need to move the flowers a bit. Still a bit unsure just how to do it tho. It's a bit tight.

A Whole New Year To Fuck Up.

Yes. 2012 is old news, here we go 2013. I don't have any great hopes for this year tho. But if I can wish for anything, it would be to find someone who loves me and to get a job. Health is over rated for my part so I'm not gonna ask for that. But I hope my mom will feel better than she has these last few months.

And once again I feel like I've lost a few weeks. The days have just gone by and although I know what I've done and where I've been, it feels like I haven't been consciously there. It's like my mind has been busy somewhere else. Could be, that I've been a bit more down than usual. But I don't really know.

I wonder how I should get things going this time, this year. It's hard to describe how it is to have things that you want to happen or get done. But not having any willpower or anything, to make it happen. Mostly it feels quite horrible really. But I will make my best effort this time. Wish me luck. I'm gonna need it.

Will look for a new one this spring again.
