Gardening anxiety

I have always been concerned about nature. Come to think of it, I only did it in a non-action way. A small example is the gardening. Knowing plants' Latin name, picking plants or tree to be planted, waiting for the flowers to bloom were all I did.

I actually never plant and take care of my plants in my garden. I let someone else do that part for me. The biggest contribution I have ever made was watering them (if it didn't rain...).

But I always enjoyed when flowers started to come out and bloom. I take minutes of my mornings to observe and enjoy them. Contented much.....?
I think I have to start doing the gardening myself.

This one blooms this morning. I didn't know what this blue orchid-like plant was until I googled about it. It's Neomarica gracilis, the Walking Iris, or we use to call it "anggrek tanah" (means ground orchid).

This one is my yellow Plumeria sp. or Frangipani. We use to call it "kemboja".

This one is my Murraya paniculata or Orange Jasmine. We use to call it "kemuning". These flowers smell very good & fresh, almost like jasmine.

Change is always good?

It's been only 2 months since I exclaimed and posted that I love that one picture sharing app on my mobile phone, the Instagram.

But it began to develop a few major changes (not much to my liking... sadly).

It was the app of the year 2011. Then the team began to expand users, a different operating system users. And yesterday it was bought by the amazing Facebook...

As much as I'm happy for the Instagram team, still I'm not amused at all...

I'm taking it too seriously... It's just an app by the way...

Spring Cat

I finally finished stitching my cat #1 last night! *happydance*

It's worth all the commotions I've been through... LOL
Now, I'm going to proceed with cat #2, the Summer Cat.

Margaret Sherry SAL 2012

Last month, I decided to join Margaret Sherry SAL #3. We have 4 Cool Cats to stitch throughout the year 2012. It is actually my 2nd SAL after the Culinary Cats SAL last year.

Well, since I have been taking a break from cross stitching activities for too long, I was kind of looking for a very very very good motivation to start again. So, here I was struggling with my loads of work and housework, and adding an extra load of my long-time hobby to make my day. It was so much fun, I should have done it long time ago. By the way, I started with the Spring Cat as my first piece.

Last weekend, this was what I had accomplished. Inspite of the commotions I had been through, I have always felt content surrounded by flosses, needles, scissor, and whatnots.

I was looking forward to finish this one soon (since the deadline was already overdue... *grin*)
