There are seedlings in my mini planter! My mint is growing! I seriously did a squeal of joy when I saw that, and baby talked the little things as I was watering them. My red pepper plant is also looking perkier since I brought it inside. The LED light is working! Now let's hope that my watering is enough, too.
In other news, I went to a needlecraft group today at a library in a nearby town. I was invited last Saturday by a woman at a Farmer's Market since she saw my knitting tattoo. She told me to bring an apple and a chopstick, and she was going to show me how to spin yarn. I almost did a backflip right there, because learning to spin yarn was something I really wanted to do. So, today I went, and she gave me some roving. Here are the results:
The yarn result isn't pretty, but it was fun! I never thought of using an apple and a chopstick to make a drop spindle. The woman gave me some more roving to play with, so I'll be goofing around with that. I'm thinking of getting a nice spindle now.
I'm also looking at getting a new bike helmet. My current one is made for sport riding, and is a pretty blue, but I want something more interesting and unique. Yakkay makes some pretty helmets with covers to make them look like hats, but they are $120 each. The ones I am really liking are by Nutcase. My favorite designs are Star Bright, Daisy Stripe, and Sunburst. Once I figure out how much money I'll have left after my next rent payment, I'll be placing my order.
