A domestic geeky life

What a pretty busy weekend to lead into a super busy week!
First, grocery shopping this weekend didn't include the normal fresh fruits and veggies we normally get, but lots of trail mix, granola bars, and water. Prepping for the coming apocalypse? Well, kinda. We're heading to Comic Con in San Diego this week! (which I'm sure we'll catch the annual Gaslamp zombie walk). As we'll be spending plenty of money on books, toys, and dinners, we try to save a couple bucks by taking it easy on breakfast and lunch with travel food.

Now that my garden is over a week old, I'm actually seeing some progress! My tomatoes needed a little boost, so I used a couple different concoctions: Garlic water spray for bugs, Epsom salt water spray for magnesium, coffee grounds for fertilizer and bug deterrent, and powdered egg shells for calcium.
(Not sure if I even give myself this many vitamins!) And I'm happy to see some of my seeds have sprouted. Just within 1-2 days, my bush beans have taking off, and my little baby radishes are pushing their way up. I also noticed some sprouts starting from my carrots and onions too.

I've set a goal for myself to finish my current t-shirt quilt by the end of the month. And based on the amount of work I got done this weekend, I think it might happen, even with a few days away at Comic Con. I've finishing the stitching in the yellow 'negative' space; now I'm working on the brown frames.

Keep an eye on my Twitter and Instagram feeds for updates from the Con!
