Oh Sundays, I do love you.
Woke up early, ate Poptarts in bed (OMG bad), drove to the Eastside and hung out with Matao's mama for a bit. Bought lots of honey, cereal, goldfish crackers, tuna, and bread at COSTCO. Came home and made a huge salad and tuna cakes for lunch. Tried to take a nap. Matao left for work and I went to go buy plants. Ended up spending $40 on pots, plants, seeds, and soil. Went to Goodwill and bought an ugly little stand for $5.
AND NOW I HAVE THIS!
Jalapenos, tomatoes, basil, peppermint, and lavender. I'm hoping to find another cheap/small table to put up next to it so I can start my cilantro and carrot seeds. We will see. I decided not to do any gardening in our "yard" since as of last night we have RACCOONS. Oh, the horror. I almost had Cape Disappointment flashbacks. So, instead I'm doing it this way.
The really cool thing about the entryway of my apartment is that it has huge windows and gets a ton of light, so it will more or less work just like a greenhouse. Hopefully our neighbors won't hate me. I'm pretty sure they already think I'm weird, since there are always 200 bikes sitting out there, and I just started composting (ew not in the entryway). Whatever, suckas.
Speaking of bikes- I'm selling my sweet little Frankenstein single speed. It breaks my heart a teenie little bit, because it makes me think of my loverpants Amoo who has left me for bigger gardens and actual beaches. Slutbag. It just seems practical at this point- as no one is riding it and all it really does anymore is take up space. It is ridiculous looking and almost but not quite embarrassing to be seen on. But hey- if you happen to be looking for a small, cheap, basic, almost sort of cute single speed/fixed gear- I'm your lady. It's pretty much ready to go- although I'd throw some cages and straps on there, just for good measure. And by "I'd"- I mean that you should.
Check it right here. See how cute???
