Earth Day 2014

Sometimes I feel like I'm some kind of weird super hero villain, the "anti-plant lady", since i have gotten rid of so much flora in my backyard. But I really love plants! Honest. 

My friends had some extra flowers from their gardening exploits and gave me some. This inspired me to get a few more plants so that I could tidy up the yard and get it ready for summer. I bought some zucchini, rosemary and a blue giant succulent. I discovered some tomato plants that had sprouted from an old tomato from last year. Those were short lived though because my babykat ate the big one and the smaller one shriveled up. Le Sad.
I was thinking of getting some hanging plants too, but I already spent more than I was planning. Maybe next year. I'm really happy with the rosemary, I'm hoping it will be happy too and get ridiculously large.
My patio isn't going to win any covers of Better Homes and Garden but it is an improvement!

Intimacy through Hand Gestures

I believe that all couples have conversational quirks, a secret language as it were, that includes inside jokes, code words, pet names, facial expressions, and gestures. Hang around any couple that have been together for awhile and you will see what I mean. I find these idiosyncrasies absolutely adorable! Its so funny how it just develops on its own, without anyone really noticing.

My husband and I are no exception. I may not notice all the things we do, but I am aware of a few.

I am going to show you a few hand gestures that I do towards my husband. These are usually done when passing each other in a room or sitting in the car when we/I am not interested in conversation but want to acknowledge his presence if we make eye contact. Like when he is playing a video game and I'm just passing by. Does that make sense? I don't know why these are so violent :)

Thursday Links 4-17-14


  • Couch Potato! So meta :)
  • Unlikely Historical Events So trippy! This is one of my favorite ones: When the pyramids were being built, there were still woolly mammoths.
  • Kids React to a Rotary Phone This is so hilarious. I wonder how future kids will react to today's smart phones! "OHHH.... they would CALL."
  • Baby Metal Ah, my brain! I love japanese culture and I love metal but... but... I DON'T KNOW about this!
  • Stuff Thrown At My Head I don't know why but this is so funny to me :) Love the first photo the most.
