The end of 2014

The year of 2014 is approaching to the end. I am very pleased and blessed with all the good and happy memories throughout this year. A lot of tasks I have accomplished despite the changes in the administration. Love life was soaring even though my dearest honey had to undergo a massive surgery. Being a worker and a care giver was not an easy tasks. I thought I did them well. The growing season was really awesome. For the very first time after too many years, the Brussel sprouts grew for me. The same happened to the purple cabbage and the Roselle plants. I am very happy and had shared the wealth with my good friends.

Visiting mom’s house was the most enjoying time I had this year. Three weeks there celebrating the Ramadan Eid and my sister’s birthday seems too short but I was happy to see the family. My nieces and nephews are all growing into a beautiful young ladies and young man. They are doing well at school and I am so proud of all of them.

I am hopeful and looking forward to another great year in 2015. I am wishing Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my readers. I will see you all next year.

Spooky Halloween

Once a year, it should be ok for me to have fun and join the flow. This year's Halloween party was all out. It took us the same amount of time to put the decoration up and to take them back down. The food was great. The crowd was supportive and fun. Besides lunch, the attendees could buy raffle tickets. There are also Halloween trivia game, throwing hoop and pin the pumpkin.
 We were using dried leaves for real fall effect. I had a great time wearing this blonde wig and mask.

Curry Leaves Plant Seeds

My good friend Gert sent these berries of the curry leaves plant. I am very excited to grow these seeds. The berries have a sweet taste with a strong curry leaves smells. I soaked the seeds for couple of hours and planted them in a potting soil mix with some perlite. I moistened the soil. Following Gert's instruction, I then placed them in a zip lock plastic bag to retain moisture. It has been 2weeks now an I only see tiny green leaves. I couldn't take their picture since they are so tiny and might not show up on camera. I will update you when the plant mature. I have counted the seeds. I have about 21 seeds and am anxious to see how many of them will germinate.
The picture above is the curry leaves plant producing more babies at the base even after I have prune them last year. I will prune them again soon.
