Boulder galore.

I had a most excellent day yesterday. Went out climbing with Sugar, two of his friends, and the gf of one of them. New people make me worried but she was just a peach. All in all it was a very awesome experience.

Usually they go lead climbing outside, but this time it was bouldering. Never seen it, never done it, irl. But now I've got some good shots of it. And to my own ( and probably theirs too ) surprise, I even tried climbing.

It was awesome. They were all very nice and sweet and helping. I know this already but it was still very nice. I had to take some help but in the end I did top it. My first outdoors boulder. I have to do this again.

So now I'm even more interested in getting my self a pair of climbing shoes. I have to keep this up. Went out today to see if I could find some shoes to try. I might have found a pair. But I would like to try more.

There's a special brand that I'm interested in. But looks like I gotta go to Sthlm to find them. Not sure if the neighbor city has them. No worries. I'll get there eventually. Preferably sooner than later.

No-go.

I've slept but I'm tired. And my internal organs are in turmoil. I suspect too much dairy and too little water. I would, atm, just like to go back to bed. I don't even feel like playing. I guess I'm having a slightly worse day than normal. And even tho I would like to tell it to go f**c of, I can agree that maybe I just need a little rest today. I'm not really feeling down at least, just experiencing an annoying lack of energy and willpower. *Sigh*

Interesting find.

Was outdoors last weekend and watched people climb. Awesome as always. Got to see a new place I've never been to before too. Ofc I wouldn't be me if I didn't check out the plants in the area. I found a cute one that I've never seen before. It's a "Mullein". ( Kungsljus in Swedish.) Also called flannel leaf or velvet plant. Very appropriate, the leafs are so very soft and nice. Haven't seen how it looks while in bloom. But it still looks like something I'd probably want to have in my garden so I might just pop back there when I have one and take a few seeds or a plant.

Another first.

Yes, something I haven't done before is happening in the garden. I planted some artichokes recently. Got them from a friend that didn't want them in her garden any more. And I thought, why not. I planted on a fairly ok day, but right after we started to get more cold days and nights again. Got me a bit worried. So I'm happy to see that at least one of them is still alive, and apparently growing. Hope to see lots and lots of babies here.

The garden ninja.

This little fellow. Cuz you never see him coming. Google translate says it's a "King bed ( or meadow ) Lily". He's so easy to miss while growing up. I moved him from the grass last year after we found him. We only saw him because he was blooming. Before that, it just looked like a weed or thick grass. 

I know there's a white one out there in the garden somewhere too. I had a look too see if I could find it and move it into this flowerbed too. Would be sad to see it lost, but I couldn't find it sadly. But until next spring, I'm gonna try and see if I can get some seeds of this one and plant some more. Would be awesome.

Surprise in the kitchen.

This isn't mine. But I thought it was cute.
I was in the kitchen yesterday waiting for the dinner to get ready, when I found this single little pink flower growing under a big leaf. The flower belongs to my step father, he got it last year on his B-day.

African Violets, the babies.

My two latest babies are doing awesome. So happy to see more flowers on the pink one. And the blue one has started to bud up too. I guess I won't be here when he blooms. Gonna have to ask my mom to take a pic of it and send me. Still awesome. <3

Summary.

So many days of updates and then randomness.

Haven't been blogging much again. But I've been drawing more. It's gone better than expected. Besides trying to get my sleeping hours in check, I've tried to draw more. Since it's something I like and something I would like to be better at. And you won't get better if you don't practice. Haven't posted the pics here but if you check the link to the right they're on my instagram acc.

And soon, soon I'll get out of this allergy infested house. Don't get me wrong. I love my family and spending time with them. But the allergies, god. It's trying to kill me. These last 2 weeks or so I've been using a mask daily when I'm not in my room. It looks so silly but it does help with the breathing. I've been counting down the time now because I'm planning on going down to Lkpg again after my sister and mom has had their B-day. It's just a little over a week left now. I can hardly wait.

I'm not so sure what I'll be doing with my plants tho. The weather outside is still bad and not fit for tiny helpless seedlings. And I don't know how long I'll be there. Hopefully I'll be gone for a while. We'll see. Maybe my mom can take care of them. I will take a select few with me, if I can. I have a plant experiment that I need to bring down to Sugar.

Anyways. That's how it is. Hope to see some more posts here soon. Ta ta.

My day.

That is, it's my name in the calendar today.
So my mom bought me a little gift. New tea jars.
*little happy dance*
