Ryan and I bought a house super recently, and we’re finally all moved in. We still have a lot of unpacking to do, but my first order of business? Planting flowers!
We went to Home Depot and I picked out a cactus with a pink blossom on top, and a few succulents to go around it inside a planter. It’s pretty low key, but it’s really all I could muster at this point.
We’ve been packing and moving all week, with the bulk of it on Wednesday. So. Much. Work. Everything hurt when I woke up on Thursday, and I still had to go back to the old place to clean up and pack up the car with stuff we couldn’t (wouldn’t?) get into the moving truck the night before.
Here is what I have included in my cute little planter:
Elephant Bush or Spekboom
Red-headed Irishman Cactus
Chalk Fingers or Mini Blue
Echveria Hybrid “Sleepy”
The Baby Toes are my favorite! I am extremely happy with the results, although I hope they grow into each a bit more.
I hope to show you more pictures of the house, and of course ‘before and after’ photos of everything. Can’t wait!
On Wednesday we were visiting our (potentionally) new house, and that’s when the so-called “blizzard” started. It was coming down in thick junks and was so beautiful! I hope we get just a little more before Spring comes.
I can’t remember if I introduced you to the newest addition to our family, Henry. We got him back in June — I can’t believe it’s been that long! He was 6 weeks when we brought him home so that would make him 5 or 6 months old now. He is incredibly sweet and loves to cuddle. Basically the opposite of Alice. He sleeps on my face which I like and dislike. It’s hard to push a soft furry ball away. Here are some pictures I took of them yesterday.
She is the nicest person ever! At the convention, she sold mini paintings, and she even did custom mini paintings. Without hesitation, I asked her to paint Alice. I follow her on twitter, and it turns out she’s funny, too! My kind of artist.
I met Daniel at the convention. He was very proud of his designs, and he should be. One of the favorites is the “Viking on a Narwhal” (inspired by Game of Thrones). Unfortunately, he didn’t have it in the postcard sizes. I really love his style.
This girl is around my age, and she had a brillant idea to create popular fiction characters into rabbits, inspired by her own pet rabbit at home. I thought it was genius! I wish there was more work in her shop, but she told me that school is ruling her life right now. I hope she is able to add more over the summer.
