Friday Fun! (Spring!)

Hello my lovely readers!  Spring has finally started to show up in New England!  Spring is always a conflicted time for me.  I love the warm weather and appearance of new life, don’t get me wrong.  I also, however, am seriously allergic to spring.  Even with meds, I still have to limit my time outside.  So even while I want to go out and run along the Charles River path and be completely ridiculous, I can’t really.  Well, unless I want to spend the entire next day in bed wheezing for air.  So my days in the spring pretty much consist of, “Yay! It’s 60 out!  I could go for a nice long walk……wait. No.  No I can’t.”  So spring is a bit of a Catch-22 for me.

On the plus side, now I get to plan my container garden!  Last year was my first year, and I learned a lot.  “Learned a lot” means that I only successfully grew one plant.  However!  Here’s hoping that this year I will be able to apply what I learned and get at least two successful plants.  Maybe even four.  Mhm.  I’m thinking of trying a pepper, a tomato, a zucchini, and some sort of bean.  I want to see climbing things in my kitchen!  So pretty!  Hopefully the cat will leave the plants alone.  She’s periodically good and periodically bad.  Just like a person. 😉

Other than that, life continues on as usual.  I have some of the most awesome friends in the world who I see as much as possible.  I’m getting in my gym time and ever improving the quality of what I eat.  I feel healthier every day and every week is a new adventure.  Of course, I’m also consistently reading.  My first passion in life.  Happy weekends all!

    The sun is starting to be seen here in Old England as well…wouldn’t quite say warm yet but I’m ever optimistic. I’m sorry to here about your allergies. I suffer with my sinuses very badly in cold weather so I just can’t wait for some warmth, the complete opposite to you!!
    I also think your container garden sounds wonderful, growing my own plants is something I think I should really give a go. I did plant four apple trees last year so am looking forward to see if we get proper fruit this year 🙂

      Cold weather allergies isn’t something I’ve heard much of. Does Claritin help it out for you?

      Apple trees is so exciting! I do hope you’ll post pictures on your blog for us when they bloom. 🙂
