It’s been forever and a day since my last post. I have no excuse really. I simply lost interest, and it’s been a good summer AFK.
I started a patio garden with various plants in containers. I’ve been pretty successful so far with no major disasters. I’m currently growing:
- Sun Gold tomatoes
- Swiss chard
- a mesclun mix
- Thai chilies
- Bhut Jolokia Ghost chilies
- summer squash (zucchini)
- Charentais (a French cantaloupe)
- romaine lettuce
- red speckled lettuce
- butter lettuce
- miniature roses
Woo! I know that seems like a lot, but it’s only a bit of this and a splash of that in compact containers on the front patio:
Maintaining the garden has kept me busy. It can be a lot of work at times, but it’s been a good way to unwind. I’ve also been going to the gym pretty regularly, trying to cook at home more, and doing various DIY projects. I spend 8+ hours a day at a computer typing and coding and have been enjoying more and more time away from it. I’ve been focusing on becoming a domestic goodess insead!
Though what I have not been doing, unfortunately, is reading. After gorging on novels earlier this year, I needed a break (especially after the disappointment of MaddAddam). I feel the urge coming back though and will probably pick something up soon. I’m in the mood for a thriller, or sci fi. Always in the mood for sci fi.
Okay, me tired. That’s enough of an update for now.
