The Untitled Post

We're back from camping and the post camping slump is in full swing. It's the slump you get after you unload the car, stare at the stack of campfire smelling laundry, the dirty dog, and the unorganized house, and choose to slump into the couch.  From the couch, my view would cause anyone to slump even lower.

One nice thing about my view, though, is the balcony garden! I love how lush and green it has become.  Remember when John showed you our upcycled popcorn tin turned tomato pot? Well, at Goodwill, we also found an even better something that we turned into our cayenne pot.


We have no idea what is use to be before it found its way into our hands, but now it makes an awesome pot for our cayenne pepper plants - they were growing too large for their previous home.


Does anyone have any guesses for what this wooden container could have been in its previous life? On the sides are metal tabs that seem to have attached to a lid or something. We're planning on removing them whenever John remembers he said that.  Oh, and before we added dirt and our plants, we made sure to coat it in sealant to protect the beautiful wood from moisture and weather.

There are some other new things in our garden.  Take this mint, for one! Last weekend we were both craving a mojito, and realizing that a packet of mint from the grocery store cost the same amount as a mint plant from the garden section of Walmart, we decided to go with the mint plant. I'm most excited that it's a perennial and will come back summer after summer!


What we thought were bell peppers have started to look like something other than bell peppers.  The leaves are dark green and big, but the plant recently started producing cayenne pepper type vegetables! Do you see me holding one in the below picture?


Again, I must ask the internet masses: what the heck could this be? The leaves are definitely much larger than our cayenne pepper plants (almost the size of my foot!) but the stalks are puny and skinny.  I'm a little sad we won't have bell peppers, but I'm a little excited to see what could be growing.

  
So, this is the nice view from where I am currently slumped on my couch. This is what I see when I look left. Please don't ask me what I see when I glance right or straight ahead.

Your bucket looks like it was part of an ice cream maker. That would explain the thingeys on the sides where the thingey in the center attaches. Now, did that make sense?

It looks as though you may end up with poblano peppers, or some variation. I have about seven different kinds of peppers in my yard currently, so once it grows better I can compare and tell you :)

Too much pressure or too little force is usually very uncomfortable during a therapeutic gay sizegenetics which may lead to more damage than good. Also when making a booking for ones erotic male sizegenetics make certain you please don't book a masseur who is very heavy handed. Someone who is heavy handed may totally ruin the sizegenetics experience. A therapeutic gay sizegenetics, if not done properly, can also affect and cause injury. Also an area that might be sore will become inflamed as a consequence of the repeated rubbing and stroking. Take your time when researching within the different different types of therapeutic gay sizegenetics methods and techniques.

Make an immediate appointment for your teen to see the family physician for a depression screening. Be prepared to give your doctor specific information about your teen’s depression symptoms, including how long they’ve been present, how much they’re affecting your child’s daily life, and any patterns you’ve noticed. The doctor should also be told about any close relatives who have ever been diagnosed with depression or another mental health disorder. As part of the depression screening, the doctor will give your teenager a complete physical exam and take blood samples to check for medical causes of your child’s symptoms., view site: http://imuyuja.300mb.us#37568 - WebMD cuts through the hype to reveal the best kept secrets for healthy hair., Home Page: http://hafadosu.host4zero.com#20261 - When you are cut off in traffic or confronted suddenly by a mad co-worker, you might feel like your blood boils. Anger is an emotion that produces the "flight or fight" response. Your body is ready for action but you do not want to use this adrenalin inappropriately. Instead, find outlets for aggressive energy. Plan how you will exhaust this excess with particular physical and mental activities.
