New Vegetables


I planted some new vegetables today!
I hope they will do just as well as my other plants.

And for those who are curious:
We had fresh coriander with our meal twice now, and it's delicious!

Lots of Books and Vegetables


There were lots of books in the mail for me today!
There were two books that I ordered with a gift card I got as a late birthday present. One book that I won in a giveaway by Suzanne Johnson, and Beanie sent me the third Darren Shan book.

Thanks everyone!


Now for an update on my vegetables::


The coriander is ready to be part of tonight's meal.


The dill got a bigger pot, so it has some more room to grow.


The radish, cherry tomatoes, and carrots also got a bigger (and deeper) pot to give them room to grow.


My glass garden looks a bit empty now.
Time to plant some new vegetables!

A New Glass Garden

Today we went to IKEA and got an extra glass garden and some more cactus plants.


When we got home we put all the cacti in the new glass garden.


They are so awesome!


The glass garden got a place at the window, so it can get lots of sun.
(When it's not raining anyway...)


It's next to my vegetable and clover garden, which is doing well.

A Prickly Present

When I got home from work today there was a present waiting for me.


New Cactus plants!

Aren't they cool!?

Easter, a Book, and Dinosaurs


Last weekend it was Easter.
We visited family and painted eggs. I made a striped egg!


These are some of the other eggs.
I think the left one is some kind of zombie egg.


After the painting we had an Easter brunch with yummy food.
There were scones.


And bunny cheese.


We had a fun day and went home at the end of the afternoon.
Here's a pic I took from the train.


The next day we decided we wanted to have another go at painting eggs.


My owner's OtherHalf painted a really cool Easter Bunny egg!


Here's all the eggs we painted.
It was lots of fun.




Yesterday I received a book from Beanie.
He already sent me the first book in this series, which I read last weekend, so I'm eager to read this one.

Thanks Beanie!


And my owner got me dinosaur cookies!
Aren't they cool!?

A Trip to Paris - The Last Few Hours - Day 5, part 3


After our lunch we had a last look around at the Notre Dame.












No throwing stuff at birds, no dancing with your dog, and no cycling.
Check!


Everything looked so beautiful with the sun shining on it.




That bridge was glittering with gold it seemed.


It turned out to be hundreds of locks that were put on the bridge.
It's a kind of ritual I think, that people do in hope they'll visit Paris again some day.




Good bye, Paris.
Time to get our luggage and go to the train station.


A metro station called Sully?


Indeed!


How cool.

We took the metro to the hotel and got our luggage. Then we went to the train station.


The big sign in the station hall showed when the trains left.


And then we were homeward bound.

I hope we will visit Paris again sometime!

A Trip to Paris - A View, Books, and Food - Day 5, part 2


We climbed to the dome of the Sacré-Cœur.
It was a long way up. Along the way I saw this goat gargoyle.




Halfway up I spotted the Eiffel Tower in the distance


Finally we reached the top.
What a view!


Another gargoyle.


Wow, that's a long way down.






It was totally awesome!

After our climb to the dome we took a metro to the center of the city.


To pay another visit to Shakespeare and Company.


I browsed the books, looking for a cool read.


There was a pretty fountain close to the shop.


After some more browsing I decided to buy this book.


And they stamped it for me!
What a cool souvenir.


We sat outside enjoying the sun for a bit.


And then found a small restaurant where we had a pancake for lunch.

Next: The last pictures of my visit to Paris.
