I slept in a little later today than I would normally on a Sunday. Got up around 9 when I could no longer stay asleep due to the moving around that the boyfriend was doing in the kitchen. I can't complain, he was cleaning and rearranging. We have been nesting in our house lately, getting really comfortable finally. When we first moved in, we tried to make it more of a community household with the roommates. After getting into our grooves, we've found it's easier to set it up as two separate apartments for the two couples. There are two kitchens, two living areas, and two bathrooms so it works out great. Bruce and I are the type of couple (as I think most couples are) that really need our own space and alone time. There are other reasons that I may get into in the future, but I'll just leave it alone for now.
My job has been closed a week now doing renovations. I went in yesterday morning to help cleaning and doing some putting back together. It was an easy shift, and they fed us pizza. I stayed completely reasonable and two small slices of vegetarian pizza. It was nice seeing my coworkers, I have never worked in a place where I have felt such camaraderie with others. I actually miss most of them, and we all (mostly) get along really well. Even though we were doing some pretty gross deep cleaning yesterday, we were joking around and having a great time of it.
I left there around 2 to go start my pot/bucket garden project for the season. With the weather being so strange this year I had to start with seedlings instead of germinating my own seeds. But I am excited nonetheless. I might have to move the plants inside later tonight because there is a chance of SNOW. But after this I like to believe that it'll be warming up for good.
Here is the first round:
I have kale, bell peppers, jalapenos, 3 kinds of tomatoes, brussel sprouts, and strawberries. Later in the season I'll be planting spinach and some other stuff. I will be planting my herb garden this week as well.
It is so exciting to watch my plants grow. Not to mention the money saved in the long run. I won't even get into the Monsanto protection law that was put in place this past week, but I really feel we all need to be very conscious of what we are putting in our bodies regardless of cost.
I guess that's about it. Hot yoga later tonight. I took yesterday off of working out even though I hadn't originally intended to do so. But sometimes life gets in the way.
Enjoy your Sunday, hope it's as beautiful as ours is!
