Some not so thriving plants

Hello humans of the internet! Today I thought it would be fun to compile a list of some of the plants that haven’t worked out. Before reading that, please enjoy this picture of a thriving nerve plant!

On to the not so thriving plants.

  1. The elephant bush. This is a plant that I was so excited about. And because of that, I got a little obsessed with and way over watered it. This is definitely one that I’d like to try again and this time I’ll make sure to water it correctly.
  2. The sensitive plant. Another one that I was super excited about. I grew this one from seeds, it was thriving. At least, it was thriving until Soot discovered that it moved and attacked it. I tried to save it.
  3. Aloe seeds. This one isn’t a fail on my part because the seeds did sprout, but the seeds that came up were a cacti not an aloe.
  4. A moon valley pilea. I don’t think I ever made a post talking about this one. I think this one must have had some kind of fungus as it went from healthy to rotting within days of me bringing it home.
  5. An aluminum plant. This one was thriving, but I put the moon valley pilea next to it and it also rotted super quickly.

Now, let’s take a look at my thriving Norfolk island pine, so I can feel a little bit better.

Much love

Happy New Year

Hello humans of the internet! Yes I know that it’s a week into 2020. I’ve been busy over thinking this post. It’s the first post of the year. The first post of the decade. That’s a lot of self imposed pressure. I have come to the conclusion that it’s best to start the decade as I intend to continue: low expectations and an attempt at humor.

Begonias

Hello humans of the internet! It’s a few days after Christmas. I’ve spent the past couple of days just hanging out with my family.

It seems like the bigger families get, the more obligations you have at Christmas time.

Why is this called begonias if you’re just going to talk about Christmas? I’m getting there. One of my Christmas presents was this beautiful begonia.

So, I’ve been doing a lot of research on begonias because I can’t let it die. In my research I learned that apparently begonias die back in the winter….so in retrospect, I’ve definitely composted not dead begonias. But now I know better and this beautiful plant will not die. I mean look at it. It’s got so much color! But, yeah I think I know what to do. Any and all tips are welcome.

Much love I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and is excited for the new year!

Couch/Bed Decorations

Hello humans of the internet! I had a lot of fun putting this together. It’s on my bed, but I think it would be cute on a couch. I meant to post this earlier but I got distracted by laundry and cleaning and being an adult (also playing video games a little.)

Claw Machine Win

Hello humans of the internet! I went to the store because groceries and of course because I was bored I played the claw machine. It’s not that exciting of a blog post. I got groceries and played the claw machine and won! Now I have a super soft polar bear. It is stained with red on the back which is the exact same color as the red Santa that it was leaning on. I’m assuming that it had something to do with the color and the machine being in the sun. It’s a super cute polar bear and it matches some of Christmas decorations. I will wash it when I get home and see if the stain comes out.

Much love

Christmas Tree

Hello humans of the internet! It’s December and that means it’s time to start focusing on Christmas for me at least. Some people are already doing Christmas, some haven’t started yet and some don’t celebrate Christmas at all. I got my Christmas tree today. I wish I could say it was some super cool and romantic outing where the two of us went to the Christmas tree farm. But he has work up to like 5 days before Christmas so I went to Walmart and sent him pictures of trees until we decided on one. Earlier in November they had a larger selection of trees and I had one mentally picked out. But obviously, that’s not how that works and that tree is gone. We have a different tree which I was calling the inferior tree. I’m not calling it that anymore because it’s not the tree’s fault that someone else bought the tree I had mentally selected as the superior tree. Here is the tree in the car on the way home.

Yes my car is a mess. Focus on the tree. Also let me know what you think? Have you put up your tree yet? Do you do fake tree, real tree, potted tree, or something else all together? Growing up we almost always cut down a tree in our yard.

Much love

What’s in my makeup bag?

Hello humans of the internet! Am I out of ideas for what to post this Monday but still feel motivated to post regularly? Maybe. But I also thought that this would be fun. Do you want more dyslexic specific posts? If so, ask me some questions about it because I don’t know what you want to know. Until then I want to talk about make up.
