krackenpixie: (self portrait 2)
So, I didn't post yesterday. I'm fighting off an illness, and may actually have nearly done it. I had a sore throat, warm chest and extreme lethargy all day yesterday, and I felt like I'd wake up this morning with a full-blown, snot waterfall of a cold, but... still tired, but sore throat is less and warmth in my lungs appears to have disappeared. Yay me, if I just fought off the rhinovirus. Fighting rhinos is hard work.

Probably the biggest news to report is that we'll be re-potting our marijuana later today. It's a little nerve-wracking because I always think I'm going to traumatize the plants when I mess with them. Hah. But it'll be fine, I'm sure. I'm also going to go ahead and plant my poppies (orientalis is a bulb! who knew?) and my deep purple gladiolas out front and help Law build a gate for his little garden plot he's put out in the back yard this year because he's jealous of the one I built last year. :)

It wouldn't be wrong to clean my room, either. I think there's a crusty oatmeal bowl under the bed somewhere, and that's not typical for me. I usually keep my space pretty clean. Of course, if that bowl isn't under my bed, I'm going to be very curious as to its whereabouts. Brownies? Naughty elves? A cat that likes to hide things? (that would be Lolly, though Salome was a champion hider of things. of course, Salome liked to hide them specifically in my bed, which isn't very hidey when you think about it)

And that's pretty much going to be my day, I think.

Anyway, here's some art I found that I like - I have a digital puzzle program on my tablet that lets me turn them into puzzles. Fun times. So that's one reason I collect digital art. But anyway, here's a couple I found recently.

All of our plants went to their big boy pots today - 15 gal each, except for one 10 gal, just to see if we can do it with just 10 gallons of dirt. Anyway, they are all looking pretty healthy, and the addition of mass to the room will increase humidity dramatically, so maybe I won't have to spray the plants four times a day. Or maybe I just do that because I'm neurotic. They are supposed to be at 50% humidity (and 76 degrees), though, and we have a very hard time reaching that in our basement. In fact, our basement is both too cold and too dry - which is why we created the grow room. Well, that and the fact that when it starts to bloom, NO LIGHT can hit the plant during it's nighttime dark phases, or it will stop the bloom. So by creating a small room, we're able to be pretty sure that we won't accidentally light them up at some point. Cuz.. bummer.

Anyway, the plants are back to looking tiny, even though the largest one is 9 inches tall! But I imagine they will begin to grow like... well.. weed, now that they are in their big pots. They all have healthy roots, so wish us luck!
