I have accumulated an awful lot of seeds over the years, a lot of them old packets, so as I had a patch of garden I cleared last year I thought I'd give some of them a chance. After preparing the ground, I slung all the seeds in an empty yogurt pot, stirred them together, and sprinkled them over the garden, except for the Sunflower and the Nasturtium seeds, which I sowed in shallow drills at te edges. Raked it over, watered it, and now I shall wait and see if anything other than weeds comes up.

Here's what I sowed, a mix of annual and perennials:

Last month, I applied for a fellowship. My advisor didn't think I had a great chance of receiving it, but said it was a good application; when I saw him earlier this week, I joked that I hadn't heard back about not winning one yet.

Well, guess what I found out when I opened my email this morning? :D :D :D

That will more than cover me for my (hopefully!!) last year in grad school. Someone else in the department also received one, so our graduate director must be pleased - most years, nobody in our department gets one. And no more proctoring exams for me!

The only wrinkle is that it also covers me during the summer, and my advisor and I had already planned for me to TA for a course he's teaching and were getting me on-board with the projects the students will be doing, etc. Wonder if he'll fund someone else with it or if I'll end up helping out anyway.

Meanwhile, the weather here has been getting nicer and nicer - the first flowers are out, I've been seeing lots of robins, and the tree outside my window is budding. Going to pick up some plants this weekend and get my garden growing. I also bought flower seeds this year, so if they grow well, it will be nice and colorful out there.

What I Just Finished Reading:

Recently I finished listening to: about that kiss by Jill Shalvis a romance novel I borrowed from the library through the Libby app. I also finished reading the graphic novel Book Love by Debbie Tung (also borrowed from the library, this one through the Hoopla app).

My full list of books I've read so far this year is still here...

What I am Currently Reading:

I’m about halfway through Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh (the first book in the Psy/Changeling series and I’m listening to the audiobook version of The Trial of Lizzie Borden by Cara Robertson that I have on loan from the library through the Libby app.

What I Plan to Read Next: I’m going to read West Coast Avengers #10, which is the last issue andj came out today! After that I’ll probably read the second book in The Psy/Changeling Series Visions of Heat.

Was feeling super unwell this morning and I had a tiny ficlet of Impala-POV that could use expanding. I felt this morning like anything that I tried to write would just ruin whatever project I stuck it on, but this Impala-POV piece is just so soothing in tone. I love her so much, she loves them so much, they love her so much. It reverberates. It's so peaceful.

I feel very Garth today...

I hate upgrading phones. I've been burned by a new phone a few times, and I really hate how much they cost, these days.

wherin I grumble... )

Anyway... now I have an excuse to go to WDW and get that small world phone case, because OMG THE small world MERCH, YOU GUYS. /heart-eyes x100

My grand plan for saving for DragonCon is NOT WORKING. Part of it is my fault; and part is emergency spending surrounded by The Lifeguard's birthday debacle.... SIGH

In other news, I saw the new house, this weekend. It's HUGE, and a maze. Looks like they gutted the interior at some point, and then just dropped new rooms in at will. It's a mess. There's also a lot of work to be done out on the north 40... the previous owners didn't exactly bother with upkeep. And OMG Y'ALL: There's a metal trailer-shed along the back fence that is right out of an episode of CSI.

I told my dad, flat out, I wouldn't be shocked if they come across a body, at some point.

But, since it's two hours farther than now - and we're down a car - I'm not going to be of much assistance to get them moved, unless they come and get me first.

If only I wasn't so terrified of falling off a motorcycle.....

Anyway.. HOW ARE YOU?

Fic Promo: Current Project

Several of you found me because of doing Half a Moon, and I'm going to promote the 'verse I was writing in at some point--that was a Samhain-inspired fic, and I'll probably talk more about it at Samhain time/the spooky time of the year.

But I do have a current project that's doing all right for itself, but I'd love for it to really flourish.

One of my favorite things to do is a good fusion crossover, now that I learned how to do that (within reason). I've got a bunch of crossovers. Many are with SPN, but not all.

Anyway, I'll be promoting some of my works out of order including some of the crossovers because I feel like that is a skill I am proud of.

Here is the current crossover I am working on. I am writing it as a 'verse, so it is a series. This is the easiest way for me to write, and in two mega-fandoms I don't really see the harm.

No Archive Warnings Apply, M/M Sam Winchester/Severus Snape, Season 4 AU/fix-it, (bear with me here, if you don't see the parallels I dun't know...), side pairings for Dean, past pairings. Snape Lives, dark elements, dark Dumbledore, time travel without a time turner.

Currently incomplete but getting updated regularly.

Summary: Sam's birthday is coming up. And it's cursed. He finds someone unexpected who understands.
