I Dream of an Herb Garden..

This heat is killing me! and it somehow triggered my asthma - although I suspect it's just one of the many things, the weather. For one, I think my brain needs rest - I told you, I have been working 60-70 hours per week for about  two months now and our little family of 4 is, yet again, at a crossroad which requires some serious pushing and shoving by yours truly, applied to the hesitating hubby.

I know I'm the reckless one, he's the careful-slash-calmer one. Did I just say we compliment each other? But sometimes, he can be that hundred year old mountain-slash-rock - so hard to move.

Anyway.I know I need to do something to distract me from all these serious life issues happening around me. Crazy to be thinking of something else to do when I have my hands full already, but what can I do? That's how my system works - and I like productive distractions. ;)

Moving on, I went ahead and got me a plant. I mean, why not? He's little, he's pretty, and he's healthy enough to  live and grow despite living with us crazies - I think he's a little too independent, he needs just a little water everyday and some sun and he's good to go. But then again, I don't think I can handle anything clingy and helpless at this point.


Maybe I'll call you Grey. or Christian. or Fifty Shades. lol ;)
But what I really want to do is grow an herb garden. not that I am an  herb-fanatic, it's just that I feel they are manageable and very cute. Perhaps the bonus would be tastier pastas and sauces. lol :D

Anyway, I'm thinking, maybe something like this:

Hi Mommy Gie, meron ako simple herb garden, the ones I got from Baguio last time, I brought them here with me in Manila, so far, so good. I have basil, rosemary, lavender, mint, etc. I'll do a quick post, which reminds me. Thanks. :)I just really need to make sure to water them religiously, with the hot weather now.
