What’s New With Me – Spoiler: Nothing

Yeah, I know it’s been a little while since I last posted. I’m sorry! Life has been kind of busy the past couple of weeks and time just slipped away. I’m back now though, so no need to worry.


I bet you’re probably wondering what’s new in my life since my last update. Well, not really all that much. Like I said, I’ve been working a lot so there hasn’t been free time for much else.


Oh yeah, I did get an air purifier. I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was having trouble sleeping and thought it may help by nighttime breathing. Well I was right – it has. After a few days we noticed a huge improvement when we woke up in the morning. It was a little pricey, but it’s worth it for a good night’s sleep.



In other news, this is my new screensaver. I’m sure you can see why. I absolutely love this shot – it’s breathtaking. I’m not exactly sure where it was taken, but I’d love to go there someday. If you happen to know, please send me a message.


Oh yeah #2, I didn’t mention it before because I assumed you all know it’s a given, but my second basil plant died. I told you I don’t have a green thumb and I was right. I’ve given up on an herb garden altogether.

My Apparent Lack of a Green Thumb

So I’m obviously better off enjoying nature outside than trying to master it indoors.


I recently made a delicious homemade pesto sauce and decided it would be a great idea to grow my own basil at home. After all, it will be cheaper and save a lot of hassle – right? That’s what I thought at least.


My plan was to buy two basil plants – that way I’d be able to alternate using them. Plus, caring for two is only a little more work than one anyways. But things didn’t end up working out so well.


Within a few days the first plant started turning brown and by the end of a week I could tell there was no saving it. I was still hopeful though, because plant #2 was still going strong.


Now, less than two weeks later, the second plant is showing the same signs of impending doom. I’m going to do what I can, but I’m not very hopeful at this point. I guess I’ll just stick to buying by basil at the store instead.
