Here's looking at 27!

So it was an odd entry into 27, no doubt. I was sick and took the day off work, sick. First time ever taking a sick day and it was a friday, the day that it is most important for me to be there, for reasons- blah, blah, blah. Anyway, i wan't there. I did homework and napped and walked to the library and new seasons. And I made myself dinner- lamb burger and sweet potato fries. Yum.

I got several fabulous birthday mailings- I hope to do them all justice....

The Great Garden Pants Off!

Ben and I have entered a new stage of our lives this last week- as urban farmers. It is also a bit of a friendly competition, one he refers to as "Plants for Pants" and I have chosen to call "Pants for Plants". We are peacefully agreeing to disagree on that one. The gist of it is, who ever's plants are more bountiful, gets new pants bought for them by the other. Why pants? At this point, i can't really remember how that started but it is what it is. Pants for Plants. We had a giant shopping and planting day monday, followed by the first bbq of the season.

Farmer Ben!

Ben is growing tomatoes, peppers, herbs, lettuce, and beans. I am growing tomatoes, kale, peas, lettuce, carrots, and strawberries. I'm not exactly sure how the bounty will be measured, or compared for that matter, but we will certainly have lots of veggies to eat! My prediction is that Ben will end up buying pants, but for  himself, he needs them more than I do...

Ps: I figured out how to use the fancy new template designer!!!

Sunday, bloody Sunday

No, seriously. Science this week was about genes and heredity and traits and such, and the lab was figuring out your blood type using the "eldon card" system. I have wanted to know my blood type for a while, ever since working at the whole foods where people were constantly talking about their types and what that meant for their diet and health. I didn't know mine and i was the only one. Now i do. After much jabbing and dobbing, i figured out that I am a type B+. Ha!

On a side note, for someone who almost gagged watching the instructional video when one hand inserted the lancet into the other hand, i successfully jabbed myself lots of times. It wasn't that bad.
