Climbing Pain.

What can I say. I'm in pain. Again. And I have been more or less since we went climbing yesterday evening. I did a bad move or two, we are building a rout on the top rope wall. And now my left arm is trying to kill me for it. Had a really difficult time trying to fall asleep last night, and stay that way. Major bummer.

On the bright side I know now that I am not capable yet to perform that specific move yet. Also Since I've started climbing I've had less pain in my body over all. I just need to think a bit more and remember that my body is sensitive to some movements and strain. It's way too easy to forget in the heat of the moment.

The route is almost done now tho. And I think it's going to be great. It has just enough difficulties in it so that I can climb it but it's takes a little effort. Should be a nice help in my struggle to get up to climbing the 5c routes. When I'm not stupid enough to hurt my self, I'm getting stronger. So it's just a matter of time. :)

My Ducklings.

Called so because I've named them after the 4 kids in the Ducktales series. Now, I can't be entirely sure here. Since I can't see the labels. So I don't know which is which. But I think the top right is the female called "Anki". And the rest are ( in some order or the other ) Knatte, Fnatte and Tjatte. 

Yes it's the swedish names. Go figure. I named them like this because I don't know what type of African Violet they are. And it was the first names that came to mind. Didn't remember what color they were either so this was a pleasant surprise when I came back to my old room.

Jerusalem Artichokes.

I had no idea that that was what they were called until just today. They can also be called Sunroot or Sunchoke. I got a few bulbs early this spring from the same friend I got the two African Violet Minis. Figured what the hell, this could be fun. Never grown them before. Let's try it. Planted 11 of them and got all these now when I harvested. 

I've given a lot of it away, cuz I don't think I'd be able to eat it all even with the help of Sugar. So I left some with my mom and gave some to 3 friends. Also left a bunch in the ground so we can get more next year. And the rest I took with me. Ofc I got a few funny ones in the bunch. Like this pretty heart shaped one. Forgot to bring it tho.

Lilla Blåklockan.

This is the second of two African Violet Minis I got from a friend a while back. I've posted the other one already when it was in bloom. This one took a while longer to get there but finally it did, while I was away ofc. But, she was still at it when I came up to visit. Her name is "Lilla Blåklockan". Roughly translated into "Little Bluebell". I'm sure she has a "proper" english name too but I don't know it. This is also one of the three plants I took with me back home.

That's what I've named this little beauty. Because I got her from a woman with the same name. It's a mini African Violet. Don't know the name specifically. So I call her Maj. The woman I got the leaf from had tried to make new plants of the mother plant before, but they never survived. So I had to try for my self ofc.

First thing that happens when I come home with the leaf is that I accidentally drop it and the stem breaks 5mm from the leaf. *sigh* It's a bit short but I planted it anyway and hoped for the best. Last time I saw it nothing had happened. Then a little while ago my mom told me that it had started to grow. Awesome.

This is how it looked when I came up to visit. I don't ( ofc ) remember how the flowers looked but I'm pretty sure it was some kind of mixed white. I guess we'll see in a while, if it stays alive. Damn, just remembered that I forgot to call and say that the leaf had survived. Oh well. I'll get back to her with that later.

Been good today. Mailed my application to the education I've been wanting for a while now. Let's hope 3:rd time is the charm. Although ofc I have my doubts. As always. If I don't get it approved this time I think I might just give up and go register at the evil unemployment office. I will have to do it sooner or later anyway. Always hope for later. :P

And yesterday was climbing day, finally. Been over two weeks since I last climbed. I could feel it. But on a good note I didn't feel out of energy as I have been the last few times I went climbing. Maybe I really needed a rest. I took it easy anyway since I've been sick recently. And today when I woke up I did have a tiny bit of exercise pain. Sweet. :)

I'm back!

I was a bit sad to leave all my flowers again. But I did manage to take 3 of the small ones with me. It was a very hard decision to make. But over all, the rest seems to manage ok up there even without me. Big thx to my awesome mom for taking care of them for me.

Needless to say, I had a lot of packing with me. Had to ask Sugar to come and help me at the station. I could have taken the bus, but I din't feel like having to take that extra trip back to go get my bike later. Lazy bitch I know, but it's also nice with some company.

I've unpacked almost everything now, and made my self a little improv desk on the floor at the end of the bed. I'm gonna get my self a proper desk, but I need to get a hold of my ex first. Got some stuff to check and possibly coordinate there. We'll see. I'm fine for now tho.

I've got some pics to show but that will have to wait a little. So happy to be back here. Don't get me wrong. It's nice and fun to visit my family. But this is home now. :)

Ofc shit has to hit when I go away. I'm up visiting my family for a week now. Came here yesterday. And ofc, now I'm sick. Started with a little tickle in the back of my throat yesterday morning. Last night I couldn't sleep properly because of it. And now it hurts. So annoying. And tomorrow I'm supposed to go climbing. We'll see how that goes. At least I got to take care of all my pretty little flowers now. It looked like a jungle when I came into my room. I'm gonna try to take a few of them with me when I go. We'll see if I manage. Now I need to go rest and have some water... damn. *cough cough snivel snivel*

Quiet days.

I'm all alone. For about 2-3 days more. My love is out of the country for business. This leaves me with a lot of time to fill. I can and could do anything. But I've chosen to spend these last two days watching movies. It's actually been pretty nice.

Also trying to get some drawing done. But right now I don't have many ideas that I want to put on paper. It's always easier if you have a solid idea. Gonna keep working at it though. Maybe I'll catch an idea or two soon.
