Friday Fun! (Gardening, Kindle App, Swiffer)

Hello my lovely readers!  Thanks to my friend Nina, my tomato plant now actually has a cage instead of being held up by a contraption made up of random bits of my blinds, yarn, and my refrigerator.  It is surviving…barely.  It’s this tall gangly thing.  On the other hand, my peppers keep getting bushier but not blossoming.  Get on that, peppers!  The basil is behaving quite well.  I highly recommend it to anyone who forgets to water plants until they get wrinkly and then desperately drowns them with so much water that the dirt floats.  That might just be me.  In any case, the basil is thriving in spite of my abuse.

Oh in bookish news, I got the Kindle app for my iTouch, partly because it’s free, but also because I was wondering if I’d actually successfully finish an eBook if it wasn’t a classic.  So far all the ones I’ve tried have been classics because that’s what’s free.  Anyway, I heard that you can get some romance novels for free from Amazon via the Kindle app, and lo and behold you can!  So expect a review of reading on the Kindle app, and possibly the book, if I actually finish it.  I have yet to successfully finish an eBook, and I only plan on reading this when I’m standing up on the bus with one free hand or in line for something.  So we shall see what we see.

Also, pet owners, for the love of sanity get a Swiffer.  After battling the epicness of my own long hair combined with my kitty shedding non-stop this summer, I finally caved and bought one.  You know what?  It’s amazing!  It actually caught all the hair without sending any of it flying toward my nose.  My floors have not looked this clean in ages.  Plus, it took about a third of the time of regular sweeping.  I’m totally sold.  Although, I’ll probably still do old-fashioned mopping periodically.

Happy weekends all!

    Holy . . . yes, a swiffer would solve so many of our pet hair issues! We have a wet jet, but that doesn’t really help against dust bunnies. And I’m looking forward to your Kindle App review type thing!

        Dude, it was capable of picking up entire balls of Amanda/Ayla hair wayyy back under my bed that a broom just pushes around. I was rather amazed.

    My parents have a Swiffer – it works surprisingly well.

    I’m looking forward to seeing what you think about reading on your iPod touch. I’ve only ever managed to read The Wizard of Oz on my phone. I gave up after that – I’d much rather read a normal book.

      I have a feeling it’s probably not going to go very well, lol, but I had to give it one last hurrah!
