One More Day!

then a week of vacation! I plan to clean the apartment top to bottom, visit with my parents out of town for a day, and get as much sunshine / exercise as possible! Not the most exciting week off, but Boyfriend is really busy with work this month, and since he works from home I figure I should occupy myself :)
My Anniversary flowers are still blooming almost 2 weeks later. The peas and green onions are taking off. Spring is here! It's been pouring rain all day to prove it. Hopefully it will be all rained out by the end of my work day tomorrow :)

Pea Progress

Today is rainy, but yesterday was a beautiful sunny day. Boyfriend went to visit with his brother so I spent a few hours on the patio with the garden. The green onions have sprouted, the peas are doing wonderful so I planted some cherry tomato seeds :)

Monday was our one year anniversary. Boyfriend surprised me with the most beautiful bouquet I've ever seen in my life. He got them from Irises in Halifax. Exquisite!
We stayed in and enjoyed each others company. Incredibly romantic. We ordered in, had wine and watched a movie (Superbad!! haha) It was a wonderful evening - couldn't have asked for better :)

Latest Visitor

A white Throated Sparrow. I got up early this morning so do some housework and spotted this chubby guy outside on the patio.

Visible Pea Sprouts - finally

But at the cost of the marigolds. I think it dipped down below 0 last night, today the marigold sprouts are black... cross your fingers they bounce back :)
I do have a picture of the pea sprouts though - they're still just babies so I circled them.

So - my sony camera is still MIA. But today was my lucky day - Boyfriend was sweet enough to loan me the money to replace it!! He knows how much I love to take pictures. He's great :)

It's a Samsung ES73 - orange - cutie camera! You know what this means? All kinds of pictures - coming soon!!

We wound up watching The Ring last night. Why did that movie used to scare me so much? Couple creepy faces and a creepy kid - but that's about it. However in 2002 it was a different story! Goodbye VCR!
Great to be curled up on the couch though :) I'll watch a crappy movie for that any time.

Lazy Sunday - Pedicure

I had a hard time falling asleep last night, and when I did it didn't last long. I've had pretty much no energy all day so I decided I'd do a home pedicure so treat myself.
I read a bunch of reviews for Revlon Pedi Expert, and the Ped Egg - both are getting crazy raves - seeming to be equally as good as the other, with price being the deciding factor. I set out this afternoon to find either, and ended up finding both. Ped Egg was $14.99 CAD, and Pedi Expert was $13.99 CAD. I went with Ped Egg - the files looked a bit smaller so I thought it would work better.
It's... Meh.
The only thing that really worked out in the end is the emery pad that sticks to the bottom of the case. I followed the instructions, clean dry feet, blah blah blah and the small files ripped the soles of my feet to shreds. You know in the dead of winter, when your skin is dry, and your feet stick to your socks, exactly like that. The emery pad smoothed it out a LOT - but even after soaking my feet, moisturizing and applying my new favorite polish

(Bright Lights - Big Colour from OPI Brights 2009)
I still didn't get the result I was looking for.
Lifted my spirits enough to clean the apartment a bit.

Movie Night tonight?

Our marigolds are beginning to pop up, and so are some peas. I may have to resort to using my cell phone's camera if mine doesn't turn up soon - this is exciting :)

so in the meantime while I wait for the camera to rear its shiny head I give you...

Of Course

I can't find my camera. And it's not nearly as fun to write about stuff unless I have the pictures to go with...
Stay Tuned...

Anything and Everything

After 2 specific type blogs that couldn't keep my attention past day three, maybe this will be a success. It will likely not be of any interest to anyone but myself - who knows!
I work full time but when I'm off I enjoy gardening in the summer, and knitting in the winter. My brain has been on cruise control since before Christmas and I need to change that and get up off my ass and out of the house! :)
