The past week or two has consisted of practicing patience and keeping busy as I’m waiting for my man to get back from a work trip.
In his absence many a critter has decided to move in and keep me company. As our roommate is as afraid of bugs as I am, I believe they are telling all their friends to move in at the house that doesn’t kill bugs (instead we pathetically cower on the backs of couches).
In the past week I have seen in this house: a centipede, 3 crickets, 2 baby spiders, an enormous slug (I didn’t know such horrors existed!), a hornet, and a big and very quick spider I’ve named Fred.
^^ That’s Fred. Sometimes he leaves messages on our new whiteboard to scare our roommate Ben. When he gets really bored he draws faces on all the eggs in the fridge (or wait, maybe that was me).
As if bugs descending on our home is not bad enough, we have the creepiest painting known to man hanging in our kitchen. It was picked up for 50 cents at a car boot sale (obviously haunted).
My man likes it, however our roommate and I are quite convinced that something will crawl out of this painting and kill us in our sleep, so he’s agreed to let us get rid of it. The picture doesn’t even do justice to the creepiness of this painting.
And watering the plants and watching them grow 🙂 This is a photo of my sweetie’s pepper plants that he sent me back when I was living in Canada in early May:
This is them about a week – two weeks after I arrived (mid-late June):
And this is them now!
I’ve also acquired quite a few more tomato plants…
I’ve started to make friends with the girls I work with at the tea shop so that’s been really nice. We all went out for Indian the other night. Mostly I’m just waiting excitedly to be back in my man’s arms.
I have a little surprise for him when he gets back 🙂
