So on Wednesday (St. Paddy's Day), we'll have the family pics, and I'll show off my new 'do. I'll post the before pic Mini-me took as well, so you can see the difference.

I'm not feeling so hot today. I'm wondering if I'm running a fever; maybe it's just allergies. Allergies can really drag me down, health-wise; it's annoying as fuck.

The container garden is going well. I thinned the cilantro yesterday; hopefully it does okay. It's been growing like gangbusters so hopefully it's healthy enough for the transplantation. We found some more big containers that a neighbor was getting rid of, so I'll probably put some of the cilantro in one of those, and save the rest for my tomatoes once they're ready to be transplanted. Soon enough it will be time for the garden to live outside permanently, except for some of the herb seedlings, which I'm going to baby for a little longer. The big tomato plants are growing well, and the tomato seedlings will soon be ready to be transplanted; Bill bought a bell pepper plant, so we'll have fresh salsa out of the garden this summer. Yum yum!

That's about all the news that's fit to print around here.

Just stuff

Hoo boy. I went back to my exercise routine this morning, and I can tell I haven't done it in two weeks. My upper body will probably be talking to me tomorrow about the weight training, but damn it, I like weight training. It's the cardio that is kind of boring.

Another sunny, warm day in Florida, so the plants are outside getting some sunshine and warmth to help them grow.

I made an appointment for my hair cut on Wednesday; not cutting it short, just putting in some layers and probably some long, side-swept bangs to camouflage the fact that I have nine zillion little baby short hairs by my face that won't grow and want to stick out and be annoying.

That's about all the news that's fit to print today.

I spent yesterday afternoon wandering around Lowe's with my stepdad, and then Home Depot. He's building a birdhouse. I got plants and seeds to start my garden, and spent the rest of the afternoon playing in the dirt planting my seeds and transplanting my seedlings. For seedlings, I have a couple of tomato plants, rosemary, thyme, and parsley; for seeds, I have more tomatoes (different variety), sage, cilantro, oregano, and basil. I also have some baby marigolds to keep near my tomato plants to keep the bugs away from my tomatoes. (For some reason, the bugs that like to bother tomato plants really don't like marigolds.) If my tomato seeds give me some good plants, I may need more marigolds to protect my tomatoes.

Assuming everything works the way I want it to, I should have yummy fresh tomatoes and herbs this summer, and I got to play with dirt and seeds like I've been wanting to do for a while. I've wanted an herb garden for years; the tomatoes were mainly to please my mom, who wants home grown tomatoes this summer.

All my plants and seeds are in containers, and right now, since the weather is pleasantly warm and sunny, they're outside getting some sunshine.

Other than that, I'm really quite bored and wishing I had something to do or somewhere to go.
