A snowy December 

Can anyone guess what mountain this is?

It’s December! Where I am in the world isn’t a wintery place- usually it rains all winter long. However, this December is different! As I sit in bed and write this post, it’s snowing outside ❄ my plan for today is to stay home ALL day, reading and eventually making chilli. I haven’t done much reading these days what with school(textbooks have taken over) but I’m currently reading Primates of Park Avenue by Wednesday Martin. And this book is BEAUTIFUL. 😚 read about it below!📚

“After marrying a man from the Upper East Side and moving to the neighborhood, Wednesday Martin struggled to fit in. Drawing on her background in anthropology and primatology, she tried looking at her new world through that lens, and suddenly things fell into place. She understood the other mothers’ snobbiness at school drop-off when she compared them to olive baboons. Her obsessional quest for a Hermes Birkin handbag made sense when she realized other females wielded them to establish dominance in their troop. And so she analyzed tribal migration patterns, display rituals, physical adornment, mutilation, mating practices, extra-pair copulation, and more. Her conclusions are smart, thought-provoking and hilariously unexpected” -Goodreads

So? What do you think? Is this a book you’d read? Let me know what YOU are reading, eating or doing. Add me on Goodreads too! Happy holidays my blog friends 🎄

Winter garden failures

Oh boo! This winter I was looking forward to growing a few vegetables including carrots, spinach, radishes and beets. In September I planted seeds, which have germinated but just won’t grow any larger! They are tiny little sprouts and haven’t changed size in months. The seed packages say they grow in winter, and it’s only 10 degrees C° – 15 C° so I don’t understand what’s going on! After my wonderful summer of growing I put some nutrients back into the soil. Winter gardeners, I’m looking to you for some help! Or anyone who has any clue what I can do. My poor seedlets just won’t grow! I live on the West Coast of Canada if anyone is nearby has knows the climate better than I do. I’m loving everyone’s gardens right now, it’s so fun to see what you’re growing. For those book lovers that follow me, I’m in the midst of aceing all my classes so I haven’t been reading many books that aren’t textbooks. The summer should be better for that sort of thing

Anyway, happy Saturday friends:) and let me know ANY winter gardening tips! Happy reading and happy growing ❤🌱
