Happy 2012 everyone!!! I hope you all have had a fantastic new year celebration. As for me, it was a quiet evening with my DH and my two furry babies, just the way I like
Can’t believe 2011 has just flown past by. I have had my fair share of ups and downs but that’s just the way life goes and it’s always bittersweet. Hopefully 2012 will be another amazing year and I should also make an effort to blog more often too .
On another note, most of you should know by now that I don’t really have a green thumb. Most of the plants in my backyard are either dying or barely alive. The only thing that’s really flourishing is my rose bush.
Aren’t they pretty? They smell very lovely too .
Time really flies. I can’t believe Momo is already 5 years old. If you look at it in terms of human years, he should be about 33 years old now. However, no matter how old he gets, he’ll always be my little boy He do acts like a little kid sometimes, being very cheeky and naughty, doing things he knows I don’t like but you can’t stay mad at him for long, not when he give you those sad face, with eyes pleading, “i’m sorry”.
Anyway, I’m sure that you all still remember when I first planted my herb garden back in November? Well, some flourish and only one of them died. The unlucky plant was the coriander but it wasn’t really my fault. I saw Momo peed on it and the next day it turned brown and died .
After all the heard work of watering them diligently and feeding them with blood and bone, it’s time to harvest some of them. I cut some spring onions and red chillies so that I can used them in my cooking. I cooked black peper chicken stir-fry and I was over the moon . I know I’m being silly but I’m just so happy that I can use some of my home grown herbs!!!!!
It has been pretty hot and humid the past few days. I shouldn’t really complain much because those in the eastern states, especially in Victoria are having it a lot worst with bushfires and temperature soaring up to 45 degrees . Hope the weather will be better for them soon.
We might be having thunderstoms in the next day or so. Skies are getting cloudy and sometimes it makes me feel gloomy as well. However, in such gloomy and cloudy times like this, there will always be a rainbow to cheer us up and brings a smile to our faces .
Spring has always been one of my favourite season and sad to say, it is almost the end of Spring now. Last week, there was a birthday bash at Mark’s place for the November boys and my DH was one of them. All of us had a blast and the highlight of the night was during the games session. (see photo below). Ah…Da Mer, you’re not so young anyway since you’re no longer twenty-something. Hehehe .
Anyway, after exploring Mark’s herb garden, I decided to create my very own herb garden too. Since the weather today is so beautiful, I went to Bunnings to buy some pots, potting mix, and of course, some herbs. I bought sweet basil, coriander, spring onions, and two chilli plants. Do you think 3 herbs in a pot is too much or too tight ? Or should I just have 3 herbs in a pot? Erm, mind you, I really do not have a green thumb at all so I hope my effort and the money I spent today to start my herb garden, will not go to waste since the roses in my gardens are still alive and blooming .
While I was gardenning, my babies were enjoying the sun too. It was a little easier snapping their photos today as they’re not moving too much!! What I like most about the two of them is that they both get along so well and I just love seeing both of them together!!
Lastly, after flashing my stash on the last post, someone reckons that they’re not even full and suggest that I should buy more yarn!! And buy more yarn I did !!! Hahahaha!!! Ah…just kidding, I actually bought the yarns way before I flashed my stash. Anyway, here are the lot of yarns and I plan to use them for blankets. Oh well, hopefully I will have an FO to show you on the next post.
