Goal progress and Seedling update

BEFORE-
moving all my craft stuff into my hope chest.

I’ve not mentioned much about my progress on the goals I listed because… well, there really hasn’t been much to mention. This weekend I should be able to get a great portion of my organization project done. What a weight will be lifted once this is accomplished! I got a jump start on it tonight. Here are some pics, and of course I managed to sneak in some pics of my seedlings (day 26 – almost a month old, eek!).

another BEFORE picture.
Also, two filled file boxes of yarn in my closet – I need to get organized so I can get back into crochet and use it up!

Where it was previously housed.
Finally cleaning out the bottom of the “Narnia Closet”

Available space

AFTER-
filled it up, with room for a few more things.

hope to use up some of what’s in here and move on to new projects, finally…
sewing machine fit, too – score!

The only things that didn’t fit.
If I don’t finish the book page wreath project by June 1st, it’s staying in that trash bag and going out to the curb.
Found a use for the baskets.

Seedlings, pineapple and aloe plant.

I had used the top of the hope chest for my seedlings as of last week, and here’s a peak at how they’re coming along.  Getting big!!

Pineapple plant.
This Oct it will be 2 years from harvesting a pineapple, so another should be on its way *very* soon!

It’s getting so big!

Aloe!

What kind of esthetician would I be without the above plant?!?

Will be planting these babies this weekend.

Melons, Lettuce, Herbs, and a few flowers.
Planting this weekend.

I’m so loving this grow-your-own-food thing!

I think next year I’ll add cucumbers and tomatoes to my deck garden.  Apparently, they’re easier plants and what most people start growing.  Not melons. Oops!  I also have some squash seeds that I hope to start in my greenhouse soon, so I may have them for Fall.

Do you have any recommendations on what to add to my garden?

About Heather.B

I'm a thirty-something (how did I get so old?!) esthetician (Jan 2009), soon-to-add holistic services (Jan 2013), and then onto business school with a few more endeavors in the works. Stayed tuned though as this changes often. I call it "what-to-be-when-I'm-a-grown-up ADD" - but here's a great quote of encouragement if you're similar in nature: “The experience of centering was one I particularly sought because I thought of myself as dispersed, interested in too many things. I envied people who were ‘single-minded,’ who had one powerful talent and who knew when they got up in the morning what it was they had to do. Whereas I, wherever I turned, felt the enchantment: to the window for the sweetness of the air; to the door for the passing figures; to the teapot, the typewriter, the knitting needles, the pets, the pottery, the newspaper, the telephone. Wherever I looked I could have lived. It took me half my life to come to believe I was okay even if I did love experience in a loose and undiscriminating way and did not know for sure the difference between good and bad. My struggles to accept my nature were the struggles of centering.” – [from Centering in Pottery, Poetry, and the Person by Mary Caroline Richards] I'm a lover of animals (especially my bird and cat), my niece and nephew (and #3 on HER way), and plants; an avid crochet-er (and other crafty things), amateur photographer, baker extraordinaire, dreamer of travels far away (camping and road trips settle me for now), searcher of different music, and beloved daughter of The King. Add in a penchant for being taught new things, and you've got a good idea of what you're dealing with here. I, also, have an endocrine disorder (PCOS) that causes me to have a low carb diet and an insatiable appetite for holistic health (along with a big butt) - I console myself with the reminder that there are worse things, like being eaten by an alligator. Lastly, I've found I get bored easily and procrastinate like it's my job. So who knows how steadily I'll contribute to this. Welcome! If you choose to read this, I've warned you fairly ;), and I really hope you enjoy the variety of my life. Please send me a note and let me know about you!
