Down and out.

I'm having troubles sleeping again. Last night, or should we say early this morning. I stood in the kitchen watching the snow fall outside the window. I hoped it would stay over the day but I wasn't feeling very happy. I think I could have slept pretty much through the entire day, but I made my self get up after 12 anyway.

I tried to do some stuff but ended up in bed again a while later. Not sleeping. Just wasting time watching the sky through the window and the sealing. I am quite apparently not feeling very well. It's a good thing I'm still eating these pills. I might be feeling down and out of character. But at least I'm not thinking about all of the ways the world would be better if I wasn't in it.

I need to snap out of this somehow. Good thing Sugar is home soon. That will make everything feel better. At least for the moment. Oh, and the snow did stay. For the day anyway. It was a nice warm moment this afternoon to look out the window and see the white stuff on the ground. I hope it snows more during the night.

Orchid, Dancing Lady.

My favorite Orchid of all. Even before I got hocked on the color yellow. It blooms regularly, a few times a year. And is as easy to care for as the commonly found PhalaenopsisMaybe even easier since the bulbs the leafs grow out of will tell you if it's getting enough water or not. 

My only problem with keeping flowers, except for the lack of space. Has always been that I forget to water them. Even though the "statistics" say that the most common problem with household plants is that people tend to water them too much. From what I've seen, that statement doesn't seem to be very valid.

This plant has prospered very well here in Sugars apartment, growing quite steadily and blooming 2-4 times a year. ( If I recall correctly.) If all goes well, I intend to split her up into two plants eventually. Really looking forward to it.  She's a beauty.

The bread.

Yep. Still doing it. I don't know how many times I've baked this bread now. I've lost count. Had some tests and trials and realized that nuts and carrot is my favorite still. With some herbs, salt and oil on top. I'm really enjoying this. 

Still haven't got the feeling of "damn, have to bake again". It's a happy "oh no, need more bread. BAKE WOHOO!" feeling. Also looking for a sourdough basket so I can make pretty round breads. But they're pricey. Thinking of maybe making one my self. Maybe. But now it's time for a tea and bread snack.. ;)
