Going Green

If you're wondering what happened to the design of this blog, you can read about it here:  Blogger Wins



You thought I was talking about St. Patrick's Day, didn't you? Well, even though I'm Irish, this is not about that famous holiday... but before we get to that....

I've been MIA for a while and yes, there is a reason.  I've been having a lot of neck & shoulder pain and guess what aggravates it? The computer!  I like to sit in my nice comfy chair in the living room with my laptop, well, on my lap!  It's not a good angle for me.  I've reduced my computer time (I'm sure Pinterest misses me!) and it seems a bit better.  The Dr says there is probably some arthritis in there, too.  But I have a blog to keep up with - actually 2.  If you want to see my papercrafting, you can visit November Rose and see the goodies that come out of my Craft Room.  But, I digress....

Let's get on with the business of Going Green.  

I've read that you can grow green onions by cutting them down and sticking them in water.  If you're like me, you buy a bunch, use a few for a recipe, and then the rest get forgotten in the back of the vegetable drawer in the refrigerator.  Sound familiar?  I thought, why not give it a try and I was pleasantly surprised!
Here they are the day after they were cut and put in the water:


Day 3:


Day 5:


Day 7:


Pretty cool, huh?  The only thing I did was change the water a couple of times.  I'm pretty excited about this.  I'll never have to buy green onions again and I plan on putting them outside in my garden when the weather gets nice.

Speaking of gardens, I started my seeds the other day.  They're supposed to sprout in 7-10 days.  It's Day 4 and this is how they look:

Overachievers!!

The snow needs to melt faster!!!

You may have noticed a change around here.  I woke one morning and my (very cute) background/template was gone.  Blogger said it was still there, but, obviously, it wasn't.  I played around for a while and tried to reload it with no luck.  

To avoild further frustration, I decided to use one of the standard templates from Blogger.  Unfortunately, in the process, all of my gadgets disappeared.  Grrrrrr!!!

Since I've been having problems with my neck and shoulder (you can read about that in my next post), I haven't done much work on the blog.  I will try to get them back, but in the meantime....

Blogger wins!  Can you hear the sarcasm??
