I guess I'll try to recap my 2 last weeks or so lol

On July 2nd as I posted, we got a new kitten. It took over a week to name him, but June decided on Nick [the name of Diane's late-husband], which was decided to be short for 'Nicolas' and further shortened to 'Nicki' [because of my love for Nicolas de Lenfant].

The kitten is 3lbs of fur, claws, and trouble.



As you can see from the picture.

He is very active and gets into a lot of things. Him and Minnow took a box of tampons, ripped it open, and flung them all over my floor. Several times. He also took my shoe, dragged it across the floor and tried to pull it into the litterbox. And when picked-up to remove him from what he is getting into he will blat. He doesn't mind being picked-up and likes to be held, but he will cry if he was being bad and he is picked-up.

The Sunday before last he was after wires/cords and I got down to get after him and when I went to get up again *BANG* I hit my head hard on a doorknob. I saw little red & white spots and couldn't steady and felt like vomiting. Wendy called my mom and got her to drive me to outpatients. They kept me there all afternoon monitoring me. I was having a lot of trouble staying awake. I tried listening to "Faith Stealer" Big Finish audioplay, eating a muffin with apple juice and talking to my mom, but I just couldn't. It was pants. They decided to send me home and for me to come back if it got worst, and that I had a mild concussion.

Tuesday I was having more trouble walking and neck pain, so my mom took me back. They made an appointment for a CT scan [the nearest hospital with one was over an hour away] and wondered why I hadn't been sent for one that Sunday as I couldn't stay awake. We went to Kentville last Thursday and had the scan [the nurse/operator had to help me because I couldn't walk well]. I haven't heard back from the results yet, but have been improving. Still get confused & have trouble concentrating and get dizzy if I over do it. I can't be on the computer for very long or watch much television, and reading is meh. I also was having trouble writing. I think I'll probably be alright by the end of this week though :] When we were in Kentville my mom and I ate at Paddy's Pub & Rosie's Restaurant. I now have an points card from them~ I like the one in Wolfville more as they have more on the menu and the décor is nicer. I had a piece delicious Irish cream cheese too~ Not that cheesecake can be anything but delcious [97% of the time] ;P

-------------

I was in my garden a lot befoe bonking my head and it has since gotten full of weeds :( But besides from that it looks marvelous~ I need to take pictures of my lilium in the next day before they wilt and such. They are gorgeous!~



Here is one from last year. This year I've been blessed by having 4 or 5 flowers on the plant~

------------

I have also been playing "Echo Bazaar" almost daily. I am getting higher in my stats so I am having a lot more to do and see, and I have gotten a firmer grasp on my character. I really need to make a post on them. The next section of my Ambition ["Nemesis"] will be released this Friday so I am so excited. I have been thinking of making a post as a summery of the first part--"Of murder, dried rose petals, and red honey." Maybe I can make myself do so... :/

I am also following 4 of the dream stories: "Death By Water", "Is Someone There?", "A Game of Chess", and as of Friday "What The Thunder Said".

I was going to list what has been going on in each one, but I am too tired now :(

------------

So Captain is off, ciao~♥

Today I planted some of my favourite flowers, and some pansies. The pansies are 'black beauty' & 'Matrix raspberry sundae' o-o June had bought me the zinnia earlier this week, but the pansies I went to C.J. Nob's Farm Market to get today.

This is a fuzzy RAZR picture of the bedrail/footboard I sanded Sunday, and painted yesterday. I also installed it back where it was last night at dusk [I wanted to get it in before it rained and filled the holes it came from with rain...which sounds somewhat 'dirty' D:]. The holes and grove [it was the whole footboard, including one of the wheels still] were over a foot deep, and I had to cart over even more dirt to fill them back up enough. I basically painted the gold bits in the dark, because I didn't want to leave them until after it rained, and I would have to clean it off again. I think I'll wait awhile before re-doing the 2nd one though! :P

Here you can see the one I still need to dig-up and re-paint:

not many plants because I had to move them out of the way... )

Well today I got up and watched more "Spice and Wolf II". I really am loving it! Lawence I can't help but love, and Holo[/Horo] is a nice & refreshing strong female lead, but not the strong-but-bitchy type :3 I only have 6 episodes left though :(

We found-out Diane is coming down from Halifax on August 8th. This means I -must- clean my room ASAP. I was going to start today, but I was so nice outside I decided to work in my garden. I had a lot of weeding to do because I stopped taking care of it when I got sick last Autumn. I got all but where my strawberries are done.

media2.jpeg ) media4.jpeg )

That picture is of my minnow daffodils, which are in a Triforce arrangement :3 I carted-over a load of fresh soil in our silly heavy & old wheelbarrow. I also dug-up & washed 1 of my bedrails, as they need to be painted in RustCoat. I plan to do so the next fine weather day. I'm doing 1 at a time to make less continuous work. I hurt my back today with bending and lifting. Tomorrow phone calls & probably start cleaning.

Since it is Gackt's birthday today,& I am Canadian;years ago [livejournal.com profile] fox_avenger and me declared that July 4th is 'Gackt Day'.I celebrated by sending a txt to people,wearing my Gackt t-shirt,& drinking a bubblegum Jone's Soda...as I dont like vanilla Coca-Cola.If I were in America I definatly would be "celebrating" Independance Day...by watching fireworks & most likely getting tanked for the 1st time since April...

I made a mini!flowerbed today in the heat in-order to plant 6 four-o-clocks.I had to take the sod/grass up and then lug a bucket of soil across the whole yard.I planted them by our spare!well & maybe will put some bulbs there in the Autumn.

I put $160 on my prepaid MasterCard today since my $60 GST came.I will buy my $218USD[*bah*] ferry ticket when that goes through.I may also buy my return Amtrak ticket then too as to give me more monitary security.I recieved a Goverment letter this morning which I thought it was my birth certificate,but it was just a income tax confirmation...

I finally got my zinnia-babies resituated~ They really needed it as some were over-crowding others. I hope they will all grow well now :3 Zinnia are my favourite flowers; eventhough they have no smell. I planted 7 different kinds this year! I took me almost 3 hours, which I listened to 4 chapters of "The Vampire Lestat" with aswell. I want to be refreshed with the characters('specially that wank Lestat), so I can be in full game for Armie this Summer. I hope the part where Nicki is Embraced doesnt make me cry this time around...how I love the lovely violinist...I AM SOOO EXCITED!~*flails*I cant wait to chill with my twin!sister :D I called Armadei's aunt Kate tonight. She is verily full of win~I should be alright staying with her in Portland. I am excited about seeing Max&Aurora too!She likes "Doctor Who"(though she has mostly seen the Tenth Doctor)"Star Trek",&"CSI" so we should be s'lright together. I am looking forward to this Summer. *Rarrr!*

Tomaro is CANADA DAY~!♥ I heart fireworks!~

So I sent my application off to the Service Nova Scotia's Vital Statistics Department tonight~ It cost me $34.85 though ;_; I had to use Charles' office computer though, as the library's wasnt letting me pay with my MasterCard for a odd reason. I have my card#&such memorized now!~ So I am very proud of myself ;3

I need to decide by 1pm if I should do a public Waya photoshoot~So far I gotten a 'go for it' from [livejournal.com profile] hisensei808 :-P Anyone else agree?

I bought the portaculas I wanted today...AND C.J. Nob's had a 2for1 sale on plants so I ended-up borrowing $8 from June to buy a GORGEOUS purple waffle plant (dark purple-almost black-leaves that look like they were made with a waffle iron & tiny white flowers), a impatian x hybred, and June a tray of portacula to put in her wheelbarrel!planter. I think the purple waffle plant may be a perennial...I hope it is...I wish I could send pieces of my bleeding heart in the mail, as I would offer them since it wont stop spreading D:

NO MORE WEEDING~! [technically I will need to keep-up with it now...and buy a new 3-pronged garden hand-tool(I have forgotten the proper name...)...as 2 prongs broke-off...] I finished today as the Sun was going down. I will have to move my zinnia babies tomorrow. I want to get some portaculas (moss rose) & I hope that I can get some music-box petit sunflowers to start soon. I need to take pictures and maybe a small video soon. I love my garden.

I watched 2 episodes of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" this afternoon. I really enjoyed it. Im guessing that either the first 2 episodes were worst with cheese than these 2, or I was in the wrong mindset when I watched 1-2 :3 I want to rewatch Kindred now!~ I loved the "Macho Man"/"Oh look, juice!~" scene! Also Angel is not as hot as I remember...actually not very hot at all...did the actor change? I will try to watch 2 more episodes tomorrow~

I am going to Greenwood with a boy Saturday XP Matthew Doucet that is; like my only local geek!friend. DDR ahoy!~

Subject:*blegh*xGangrelxDelay...
I woke-up this morning and felt like I was going to vomit. I felt all shakey, and felt so sick to my stomach I didnt want to move. I had a odd watered-down-tin-ey taste in my mouth--like when you drink from a enameled cup that is losing its lining. I manged to take 2 graval(sp?), and am now going back to sleep. This puts me behind in my gardening. I hope I wake-up before it rains, so I can atleast tend my zinnia babies. I decided yesterday that I could not play a Gangrel. Earthmelding would be too messy. I may have to/should wear my arm-braces today, as I strained my arm weeding :-(

I may have to wait till tomorrow to apply, as my aunt might not be home 'till then. Also to reply to Armie; July 21th's week looks alright/better for visiting, I think, though I dont have a calender handy right now.

Well I have failed at using-up my container of sour-cream today. It expired today, and I hate wasting food (I compost like whoa). Im usually alright to eat something to midnight, before tossing it...

I weed a damn lot, and planted some new plants I got today. I got more gin/whiskey begonia (they look like 'gin' begonia, but are called 'whiskey'. I needed to replace the one I stepped-on & killed)-speaking of begonia; my faux rose one bloomed hot pink instead of yellow :-(-, some impatians (which seem different somehow than the ones I had in the past), some Saratoga nicotiana (which I tried to grow from seed but it failed), 3 four-o-clocks, and some marigolds (which I associate with memory...yet another thing I blame on synesthesia...). I LOVE my garden! Once I get the weeding done[and resituate my Zinnia elegans], I will take pictures!

Well I need to call my great aunt Hilda tomorrow to find-out my `father's` middle-name, birthday & birthplace...yeah I managed to get 'Durling' for last-name though?x_x

I should have been Nicki. I should have popped-in with the musician last year when Armie started with Armand. But, no. I went with the ego. The muse of such has haunted me since. Then again, I would have to play batshit & that character-bit about having my hands cut-off. Really though. As much as I whine, I still love it!

My zinnia-honeys have been planted!~ 7 kinds =O I also planted four-o-clocks, musicbox petit sunflowers,&nicotiana :3 NSCC is offering a Horticulture course, so I think I may have found what I shall do! I narrowed it down to lawyer,chef,or botanist anyway XD

Im off to Greenwood at Noon~ Lay-away the MP3 player,buy DMC#977 floss,a 25th anniversary pick,and some watercolours.

My Dominion Seed order came today finally! Well part of it came; the 'Isobel' shrub & the cornflowers I ordered were out of stock, so I have a credit to use on my next order. The other perenials I ordered should arrive the 6th of June according to the invoice. I hope so since Juney's birthday is the 7th. My 'Paris by Night' bulbs, the Zinnia elegans, and the Nicotiana came. So I will plant my zinnia [5 or 6 kinds this year!] today maybe. I need to rake the soil and get a bucket of dirt first...

Dr.Solma is awesome. Though I liked Dr.Martin's instriment adjustments than being put in odd positions and my back and such cracked manually. Atleast she is a attractive woman. Still Im scared of having my neck broke...She did some scans to see where my problems are. I was also given a exercise to do with with my knee to prevent the bone from floating to where it does & getting stuck [locking]. It involves a pillow & a towel...

Im going for my bloodwork & tests tomorrow. Ive been feeling tired, very weak, my muscles ache, & I have been having dizzy-spells that arent like with my low blood-pressure. I just wish I could have some yummy tea, but nothing but water after 8pm ;_; I dont mind not eating, but I like having my mug of tea before bed! Im going to hopefully eat at Tim's [Tim Horton's] after though~

It's raining really hard, & I think there is thunder too. I think I shouldnt have put some of my plant-sprouts out, I didnt even see the little things when I walked down to my garden with a umbrella...

Today is a "Matt Pain" day...When I feel the grief,shock,&the pain of not having him in my life anymore, for a reason I do not know. All I know is that I went from inseperable, to just the bitch who wouldnt stop talking to him. I dont know why!!! It still fucking hurts though.

I am able to get the Skull of Lamia(or was it Lambia?) now but cant exit the study because of getting mobbed. I also just have me as Wilhim went into Torpor right at the 2nd room. I did take all his blood though & gave him the armour I found. I started using my favorite Discipline-Celerity-though and find singling-out enemies is a good tactic(actually I like Auspex too). I love when the Skeletons' heads come-off. The Cappadocians actually run when they are low on health!

I [re]planted my begonia today & some pansies Juney gave me from her garden. Everyone I get them from seems to cosider them weeds...I hope my Dominion plant/seed order comes soon(I hope before the 7th, as it is June's birthday & I ordered her something...)!

I staked-off where Im going to move/expend my garden this year. Today once I get dressed Im going to spade the grass off and remove the sod. It will probably take a fet days to finish. Then it just needs to be tethered(sp?) and more dirt added. Then just tilling & manure. I cant wait to plan and start my plant-honeys.

Last year I had a "Dracula" audiobook to listen to while gardening. I wish I still had "The Vampire Lestat" on my MP3 player (Jan-Ken)...Though it may be ruined by Crack!

June & I went to look at stuff people had out for clean-up. I 'procured' a little wheelbarrow, a fancy metal headboard & footboard to put in my garden & a damn awesome globe-like glass lamp-shade that I also will put in my garden. I stole the chain from it to use for my Andromeda Shun cosplay. The shade is amber-coloured with Greek-ish grapes on it. I love doing things like this with Juney~!

Ok so I started my flower/parsnip garden. Usually all I plant are parsnips (yum!). This year I wanted sunflowers too :D I didn't originally like sunflowers, but my Uncle Clarence and I used to plant them when I was little (before he died). Now I like them because they remind me of him. Also the character Sara(h) from Gallery Fake burned her arm trying to save a sunflower painting from a fire ^^;

People gave me seeds/plants, and now it is pretty full. I want a scarecrow though!!!

Not much has sprouted yet, and the only flower-flowers visible are the ones I planted from those pots you can get at nurseries.

So far I have:
Giant Grey Stripe Sunflowers,
The Relay for Life Surprise Mix,
Music Box Mix Petite Sunflowers,
Gypsophila Baby's Breath,
Tempo-Pink Frost Impatiens,
New Look Celosia,
Zinnia,
Snapdragon,
Poppies,
Sparkler White Tip Radishes,
Forget-Me-Nots,
Parsnips

The names in italics are the 'fancy' names of them, and the ones in bold are the common names. I tried to list them in the order planted.

And now pictures XD (They are sorta brighter than usual, because it was overcast and I upped the exposure..)!

Read more... )
Anyway it is raining in buckets yet again ;-; so hopefully my seed won't rot int he ground :( I can't wait for the 'Music Bow Mix' to grow, the photo on the packet is pretty. I planted the parsnips like exactly to directions. I soaked them overnight to shorten growing time, put down fertilizer the day before planting (plus lots of water), I mixed a layer of potting.top soil in with the regular soil to hold moisture more, and then I planted them in little evenly spaced rows at the required depth, along with Radishes (even though I don't really like to eat radishes). They are supposed to protect the parsnip seedlings (it said so on the packet!)...

And yes I have a lot of stakes marking what is planted where XD

Now I'm going to go find out the directions for making a scarecrow, via the RuneScape way X3
