It's already Wednesday... where has my week gone?! This is one of those weeks where I wish there were more hours in the day, and I'm sure the next 3 weeks will be the same. Then the semester will be over... sigh. Just in time for summer semester to begin... luckily I'm only taking 2 classes this summer.

Anway, all I have left to do this week is write the paper. Have I started? Nope. What am I doing instead? Reading and writing blogs. Hey, it's writing, so it kind of counts, right?

I just don't want to write about multiculturalism. The more I read about it, the more bored I get. There's so much controversy surrounding it, and I'm having trouble finding facts, everything is one sided and based on opinions. I just really don't care enough to write about it and I'm struggling.

So here I am...

Since moving into our house almost 2 years ago I've been slowly but surely planting and landscaping, although that's mostly my bfs forte. I have contributed a little though... here's proof!

These are some bulbs that I planted last spring. I fell in love with the long stalks of green and was shocked when this spring they've bloomed!
 Here's a close up of the pretty purple flowers! (and the still kind of brown lawn... it hasn't rained here in weeks! It's sooo dry.)

This is the ivy that I planted last spring. I bought it from the evil empire known as Walmart, and it was only $.50. It was only one vine about 3 inches long and so pathetic looking, I bought it because I felt bad for it... a little coffee grounds, banana peels, and lots of water later... it's flourishing and I'm pleased :)

One side of our flower bed is reserved for strawberries and blackberries. I planted 3 strawberry plants last summer and they've multiplied! We already have picked a few ripe strawberries but mostly they get eaten by animals. There are sooo many I don't mind sharing :)

The next two pictures I can't take credit for but I wanted to share anyway because I think they're so pretty. This is some type of rose bush (I think... it has thorns?) that is right outside our front door and I love the pink and white flowers!

Okay, now to share a painting I have previously blogged about but just finally finished last night....
Originally I was going to leave the bottom gray space open for customization and let whoever bought it choose the words, but since I want to display it in The Wine Gallery, I've decided to just go ahead and finish it. I choose this line from the song Aquarius by The Fifth Dimension. I loooove this song and it always makes me happy.

So now I have 5 of the 7 paintings done. Time is ticking so I need to get to painting! and writing (my english paper, not blog! :) ) so here's the poem of the day....



  1. Ooh, love the quote you decided to put on your painting! Lovely. <3

  2. YAY i love strawberry pants and blackberries too :) Ive always wanted to plant them but i have no space jejeje <3

    Lovely painting, its definitely something i'd put in my room <3 And that poem is too cute :)

    I hope you have an awesome rest of the week :)

  3. Oh, I can't wait for my irises to bloom, aren't they lovely and delicate? Your gardens look much loved, that ivy plant certainly made a comeback! That sunshine painting is beautiful, I love it! Good luck with that paper... ;)

  4. I know, I can't believe how fast this week has gone. But I'm so excited that soon the rain will be gone and the May flowers will bloom.


  5. Oooo, I love irises!! :) One of my favorite flowers!! And you have sooo many strawberries! I'm so jealous! Our plants pretty much stopped producing :[ But, you'll have a bunch coming!! Enjoy ;)

  6. Irises!!! You are all amazing because now I know what kind of flowers they are... thanks :)

    Veronica Grace... Thanks! I understand about the lack of space! I lived in an tiny apartment forever so the possibilities of a house are amazing... and well worth the wait :)

    Melinda... Irises are lovely... I find myself wandering to the living room window about twenty times a day to look at them! The paper is coming along... almost done!

    Grace... Send the rain here please! :) It hasn't rained here in weeks!
