Three weeks down of my 22-week-challenge and I’m having a great time! Here are some of my favorite things that I’ve accomplished from the last 2 weeks…
Progress on my garden
My favorite part of this whole challenge has for sure been the gardening aspect of things! I am LOVING watering my garden each day and checking to see if there’s any new growth. I currently have over 30 sprouts, I believe, most of which seem to be California poppies and marigolds. And I believe I recognize a nasturtium plant as well. But as I’m a total amateur to gardening only time will tell if my guesses are correct or not 🙂
I’ve also had other gardening adventures over the week (including a new sunhat that I LOVE), but I’ll try to make that next week’s post.
We recycled, I believe, over a year of recycling the other week (sparkling water is my and Walker’s greatest weakness of all time), and of course there just happened to be 22lbs of bottles and cans! Haha! Seriously though, what are the odds?
Cross-Stitch a coaster
I’m brand new to cross-stitching this year and had only made one other thing so far, so endeavoring to cross-stitch a coaster was actually a really big challenge for me. I ended up finding that I love cross-stitching though, because it reminds me of coloring. It takes a lot of time and patience, but it’s so satisfying to see the progress 🙂
Here’s the finished result!
It’s supposed to be a happy cloud pouring colorful rain…not a cupcake. 😉 Ten points to whoever guessed correctly!
A couple of my honorable fails have been trying to cross-stitch free-hand onto clothing and failing horrendously, baking something but accidentally spilling in a gallon of vanilla extract *exaggeration alert* into the mix and it tasted disgusting, AND getting caught in the crossfire of urine by our male goat. If you’ve smelled a male goat then you know that this is not something that anybody aspires to in life >_< haaaa.
Watch a movie and eat fruit loops as popcorn
I have been waiting, I don’t know, 5 years or so to be healthy enough to do this! So believe me when I tell you how special this was for me ^_^. Everybody has that weird thing that they do when everyone else is doing something else, and eating fruit loops instead of popcorn as a treat every now and then is one of my many weird things 😉
That’s all for now! Thanks for following my adventure thus far ❤
