My container garden (for now)


I am growing Sweet Basil, English Mint, Chocolate Mint, Green onions, & Oregano.
Right now that is all I can handle, I also have a few bulb onions and Hostas around the porch, but they are easily watered and then forgotten :).




The basil was grown from seeds I took from my mom's basil plant at her house, the green onions from the discarded roots of a onion from the grocery store, and the mints and oregano are both from the Dallas Farmer's Market.

Something I've always thought.

Being a fan of basketball, I am naturally a fan of the Mavericks. Whenever Jason Kidd is playing, I always think out loud, "Is it just me, or does he look like a Ferengi?" In case you are wondering what a Ferengi you go

Everyone, meet the lovely Quark.

Anyways, now here is Jason Kidd:
Everyone, Jason Kidd.

And now, Jason Kidd the Ferengi.
My Photoshop skills are laughable, but I think it gets my point across.
Can anyone else see this?
I would be so happy if I could get a picture next to Jason Kidd while he was wearing a pair of Trekkie-fan Ferengi ears. Seriously!
Johanna the nerd.

Jackamo and his daily car ride :)



This is a quick post to explain that I am not away because I want to be, but because I had lost my camera. I found it this week and will be back shortly with quite a few posts about many things to catch you up basically since last spring. Huzzah!

24 days and counting.

Counting until what you might ask me? (You might not ask, or even care about what I'm counting down, but I will tell you anyways)

That is what I'm counting down for. For me, the christmas tree gets pulled out of the attic and put up the first week of November. I have a lot of christmas decorations (my fall decor fits in nicely too!) that I feel like since I go through so much effort to get it set up every year, I might as well enjoy it for a while!

This year with having Jack, we won't be able to put all of our AWESOME ornaments we bought while on our honeymoon last year. I'm afraid he will ransack the tree at some point so I want to keep them from getting broken.

My idea is to hang a long garland over my dining table or over the TV area and hang the ornaments off of it so they will be out of puppy's reach.

*sigh* only 24 days to go until i'm not ENTIRELY crazy to start making paper snowflakes and setting up my christmas (mismas) tree :)
