when life gives you flowers, make lemons + life update

by - 5/02/2015 03:05:00 pm


Remember my baby lemon tree (which is like 3 years old, but you know...)? It bloomed it's first flower yesterday, which means...LEMONS SOON. Yes, I felt the need to bold and capitalize.

As soon as I saw it I dashed into the house and grabbed the nearest phone camera (thankfully not an iPhone cam; my own camera was charging), because 1) I am a madman, 2) it was kind of like experiencing the birth of your grandchild, and 3) the angle of the sunlight hitting the dew drops on the leaves was perfect, and my photographs don't do them justice. It was Serendipity, and she found me. 

Anyway, that was weird. I'm weird! I'm a biologist, not like many my smartypants physics/chem friends, so bear with me.



I could do a life update, but I find my garden more interesting them my actual life. But here's a quick rundown of what had been happening in my life:

- I rented out Thor: The Dark World. I finally watched the darn thing, and wow, I've got to say, Loki was one tricky bastard. But I love him and forgive him. Here's a mini review of how it went: 9/10.


- I saw Insurgent with my friends. Not as good as Thor: TDW. Also, I was a bit of a cheek towards my friends who hadn't read the book, and I acted like I had some superior knowledge, but it turns out IT DIDN'T EVEN MATTER.

- I finally finished my Politics essay I'd been working on. It's about the threat of ISIS (heavy stuff), which is frustrating to follow because the media keeps updating and so my essay has to update with it.

I told you my garden was more interesting! Hopefully when I'm 50 Gandalf will whisk me away on some adventure.

  2. You must post pictures when you get a lemon!! The same thing with Insurgent happened to me. I felt prepared, but they hardly followed the book!
    I haven't seen Thor: The Dark World, but I have seen Thor. Did you see Age of Ultron yet?

    1. I will! Yeah, especially the five faction test thing. I was like, was this in the book and I missed it...?
      Oh my, you need to watch it, it's so good! I haven't yet, although it came out a few days ago, I just haven't had the time to see it. :) Have you?

  3. You know how that feels when your plants finally bloom!
    I've had this orange plant for like 3 years and every year it'd bloom flowers but due to a lot of factors they used to shed.Finally this year the flowers bloomed and didn't shed instead turned into tiny oranges!It was the best feeling ever :D
    And they were so good to taste :D
    Do you have any other plant?
    Thor :TDW is amazing,loki is awesome! :)
    I'm sure Gandalf is looking into your adventure :P

  4. I loved Thor Dark World. Wait...what did I say? I MEAN I LOVE THOR: THE LOKI MOVIE. xDXD omg, Loki is adorable and wonderful and I pretty much wish he was in ever Marvel movie, but, sadly, they don't listen to my opinion. *cries a little* hehe. I liked it a LOT better than Thor 1.
    YAY FOR LEMONS. My life is lemon custard at the moment. Yummmy. Also that grass pic with the sunlight is insanely awesome! WELL DONE.

    1. YESS. Poor Thor, everyone knows Loki always steals the show. If he was in every Marvel movie, their sales would skyrocket! :')
      Mmm that sounds nice. Thanks for your kind words. :)

  5. CONGRATULATIONS ON THE LEMON TREE. MUCH CONGRATS. Tell us how the lemons taste.

    Thor: The Dark World was basically Loki: Now Sort of a Hero and Malekith: Totally Sidelined. Which is good and not good at the same time.

    1. YES LOKI IS THE CIRCLE OF LIFE (maybe).
      He is! He's so nice that sometimes I wonder how he plays a villian.
      Yay for lemons. Thanks for commenting. :)

  8. Oh, I LOVED Thor: TDW! I don't know much about the Divergent series, but lemons is cool! Will you make cake or lemonade with them? (I'm always in favor of cake.)

    1. It was brilliant. :D I think you should give Divergent a go, it's pretty good (the first movie)! Cake would be nice, but as I don't know how to bake, I'll just stick to lemonade. :)

  9. lemon tree! That's crazy awesome....let me just say. Like how many lemons do you get a year? A hundred?

    1. :D yup. I haven't gotten any lemons yet, this is the first flower that bloomed. Naturally, the tree is tiny. :)

  10. Lemongrab finds this unacceptable! ;) Jk... that's so cool! I know exactly how you feel! Our family has a farm in Morocco and whenever we visit I get so excited to see the orange trees etc. But I suppose it's not exactly the same... <3

    I also saw Insurgent, but it was nothing like the book! I was also kind of cheeky to my friends about it *shamefaced*. But to be really honest I didn't really like the film. For me it was like a 6.5ish/10.

    1. You know how I feel! So I'm not weird after all...;) I think the feeling would be the same.

      I know! I didn't really like it either. I's give it a 7 on a good day. :) Divergent was better, I think.

  11. Aw, I love your lemon tree! It must be so exciting to grow your own lemons.
    Love your blog :)

  12. Amazing photos!

    Thor: The Dark World! I love that movie. It's one of my favorites. It has even more Loki-epicness than the first one. And I love the brother relationship even though it's conflicted. . . "If you dare betray him-" "What? You'll kill me?"

    I don't even want to see Insurgent. *sobs*

    I love the last pic. :)

  13. Hey! Found your blog through the amazing Opal's...looking forward to sticking around =)

    Really liked Thor II! And how could you not forgive Loki!? Not even interested in seeing Insurgent...so disappointed with that whole series after Allegiant (not even necessarily having to do with what happens to Tris in the end) and the movies just continue to upset me. Ugh.

    1. Yay! Opal's great. :') thanks for the follow! You should tell me your blog so I can follow yours.

      Agreed. And the Divergent series went downhill. It's not worth seeing. :)

    Three years to your first lemon blossom? Not too bad. Hope there are many others.
