Allowing Myself

…to feel, to love, to be.

Werkin’ It

Happy October! While I haven’t been here much, haven’t posted a September recap or welcomed in the new month, I am happy to grab this snippet of time. The good news: I’ve been busy with work, running successful events (thank goodness). I’ve had energy, felt good and am generally taking care of myself (read: working out, lowering the bar and not consuming much alcohol). The downside is that there’s only so much time in the day – while I’ve been reading, Project Life-ing and working, blogging has fallen off the wagon.

Not to fear…

I miss this space. And I have plans to say hello a bit more. If you’re out there reading and want to shoot over a comment, y’know, to start the dialogue, I’m open to it. Otherwise, you can find me reading Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail or attempting to knit this cowl. Oh, and also enjoying that it hasn’t been the death-hotness that it was over Labor Day or last year around this time. Cooler temps make a girl happy.


Update: Patio Garden






Well – the patio garden is doing pretty amazing. It’s been a month and they’re growing! We have about 5 large tomatos, all green. The grape tomato plant just began flowering last week and has tons of little buds. And the basil plant is lush and green.

The heat is helping, I think. We learned to water them all more often. H is always asking me if I’ve watered them that day, and if I haven’t, he’ll take the water can and go to it. Love that he cares about them. I hardly forget to do the watering, though they do need some trimming. I let the basil grow a bit too much, it began to flower. Cut those right off. The grape tomato plant needs a stake to grown on too.

Overall, they are doing really well. And smell amazing. I am impressed. There really is something rewarding about growing things.

How are your summer gardens growing?
