2010 Word Update.
Friends. Have you checked your calendars? It's the middle of June. Time is flying, no? I'm continuing to work on my word for the year. (If you're new to this space, you can read what word I chose here and my last update post here.)
Lately I've been learning:
-To play the guitar. I finished my first round of group guitar lessons a couple of weeks ago. My plan is to practice, practice, practice this summer so I can move on to the "intermediate" class in the fall. It's not going to be easy, playing the guitar is tough stuff, but I've got myself a fantastic teacher and a really inspiring friend. Plus, my fingers are all callused over so there's no turning back now.
-Gardening is a lesson in trial and error. After the very successful completion of our raised garden boxes, Ryan and I were eager to get things planted. We planted strawberries, brussel sprouts, broccoli, tomatoes, carrots, cilantro, peppers, beans, peas and spinach. The problem? Plant placement. The row of cilantro went between the tomatoes. Big mistake. The tomato plants are now HUGE and the cilantro isn't getting enough sun. The peas + beans were planted side by side. The problem? Both of these veggies like to climb. They're getting entangled and top heavy. (our bamboo supports aren't working.) We're making notes + determined to right these wrongs next year. Your tips would be very much appreciated too, dears.
-To sew clothes! I know I've already devoted an entire post to my first clothing sewing project, but I had to add this to the list. My mother and I are taking a road trip next week to get our hands on some pretty fabric (this town's got nothing!) so I'm predicting more sewing posts in the future.
Have you been learning anything new and interesting? I'd love to hear about it.
