I mentioned a few weeks ago that I bought some fruit and vegies to grow. It took me a couple of weeks to repot them, but when I did I decided to put them up on my back deck. I wasn't convinced that it was really the best place for them but I wanted them to be right there so that I would see them every day and not forget to water them. I have to say that so far most of them seem to be thriving. The herbs are probably the ones that aren't doing so well, but I might move them so that they are closer to the light!
In the background to the first photo you can see what my plants generally end up looking like! The main reason for posting these today is in celebration of the fact that they aren't dead yet! Yay!
I have managed to do a few things this weekend actually. I have just finished emptying the memory card for my camera (because it was full). On the card there were pictures from our holiday 2 years ago!
The other thing that my friend and I did is put together the exercise bike that I bought as a birthday present to myself not last year, but the year before. Better late than never right? The plan is to do 1o minutes each morning while the news, sport and weather headlines are on and then build up from there. Of course, that was the plan when I bought it too, but that didn't exactly happen did it!
My son isn't very good at posing for pictures. Pulling faces are not that unusual, but the one on this photo is right up there with some of the worst faces I have seen for a while!
My Christmas shopping is pretty much done as well, so all in all a pretty productive weekend. Let's just not think about the fact that I didn't get to finish cleaning the kitchen, and I am still doing washing etc etc.
