Beauty and the Beach

We had our annual Hong Kong trip but this year we didn't go to the beach. I really wanted it to be a tradition to go to the beach in Hong Kong but it just didn't work out this year. It rained almost every day while we were there.

My friend saw this Willi Smith skirt for $5.99 from a local thrift store and thought I should try it on.  I hesitated. It's perfect for this month's theme but it's not something I would wear. I tried it on anyway and it actually looked cute. I could wear this to a beach-themed party. I was still indecisive until we remembered that white tags were half price that day. It came home with me.

Let's see what lili found for Beauty and the Beach.

Next month: Back to school.

Pomegranate update

I've been checking on the pomegranate tree every day. Today, I got worried. I only saw 2 pomegranates at first. I looked and looked and found this. The weight has pulled it down lower and it was hiding behind some branches.  In just a few days, this pomegranate has more than doubled in size. Is that even possible? I wonder when it's ready to be harvested.

Garden update

We just came back from our trip to Hong Kong. It's nice to be back but it was also hard to leave.  The boys were starting to speak Cantonese more. Jebu started to use complete sentences towards the end of the trip and I could tell B could understand some complex conversations. It was pretty amazing to see that they can learn so quickly but it's sad we had to leave when they're just getting used to the language. But now, we must get back to practicing our Spanish!

One thing I missed while away was my garden. I moved some bell pepper outside before we left for Hong Kong. To my surprise, we came back to these healthy bell pepper plants ready to fruit.  They were planted from seeds on the window sill. The seeds are from some organic bell peppers I got from Trader Joes!

Even more of a surprise, our 2 1/2 year old dwarf pomegranate tree has 3 baby pomegranates! 

 I'm now more motivated than ever. Next thing I think I'll plant is some Asian greens.
