We have this "issue" when we go to bed most nights. Our cat, Baby, loves to sleep on my other half's pillow! He really loves to sleep anywhere up by our heads, but usually it's on his pillow. This is only an issue because my other half takes up all of his "half" the bed (length wise) and part of mine most of the time too! So, there really isn't room for a 20 pound cat up there! None the less, he was a happy kitty last night while we watched the last bit of X-Men 2 (it was on the Fx movie channel last night) before heading off to sleep. I think he likes watching television with us too, lol. He actually laid down with me and watched the entire movie and normally hangs out with me when ever I watch anything on either television!
|Tiny Marigold Bloom!|
Most of my flowers aren't doing very well, I seem to be better at growing herbs and some veggies! However, my Marigolds are doing pretty awesome if you consider I started them from seeds! They are tiny, nothing like the monster plants you can buy in the pony-packs, but they are really pretty! One has even bloomed! They aren't pink or purple as I had suspected, they are actually my favorite color of Marigold, deep red with a yellow/orange trim! I'm not a huge fan of the "plain, old" single colored ones, lol. If bud color is anything to go by, all of my successful Marigolds are the same color combo too. Kind of odd from a packet of mixed seeds, but I'll take it! I have at least a dozen more blooms on my little plants!
|Strawberries, Petunias, & Snap Dragons|
|Sweet & Sour Shrimp|
However, since City Cup starts this Friday evening (at Snoop's if anyone wants to brave the crowds and cheer on all the pool players), it will have to wait until Sunday or Monday depending on how well my group of guys does! My other half's team (What the...) made it into both 8-ball and 9-ball this year! Last year they won the "losers bracket" of 9-ball and went on to Las Vegas! Potentially they could make it to Vegas again this year for the full 2 weeks! But, since most of his team members can't take that much time out of work and away from their families, we're hoping they win either 8- or 9-ball, otherwise they'll have to forfeit one of the trips. My next 3 weekends will be interesting to say the least as I run back and forth between the bar and the house (we live a few blocks away from Snoop's), bringing low carb snacks and treats and even lunch and dinner depending on the schedule works out! 8-ball matches are easier to take time away from as start times are set, 9-ball moves much more quickly (or slowly) depending on how things go in each match up. So, I may be needed to make food runs in between finishing up the chicken coop and run (that needs done desperately now)!
I am apparently very good at growing Parsley, lol! One of those "make it looks pretty" type herbs...I don't think Parsley adds any flavor... My little "from seed" plants are doing great though! I see lits of color this Summer!
|Unknown Thorny plant!|
And then there's this little "guy"...I have no clue what it is! It popped up with my Sage seeds. At first I thought it was just a really odd way for Sage to start life (it was the first to sprout and really grow), but now it is huge in comparrison to its planter mates! Also, this thing has thorns all over and spikes on the end of each leaf! And, it's a trailing plant, whatever it is, or maybe a creeper/climber? The part of the picture that looks like I removed something from around the plant is actually just the little thorns gleaming in the sunlight! Any guesses on what this thing is would be apprectiated!
