Authors in Bloom Blog Hop

Welcome to Authors in Bloom Blog Hop! Thank you, Dianne Vennetta, for organizing it.

So, in this hop, we're supposed to give gardening tips or recipes. Well, I'm not really good in gardening. I, like what people say, don't have a green thumb. I've never really been successful every time I plant something. The best I did was probably when I planted my bougainvillea (or Kembang Kertas in my native language). It wasn't very leafy but at least I got to have some flowers. :D

As for some gardening tips, I just got one from a friend. She said to make our plants grow well, I could mix something in the fertilizers, such as the used tea from the tea bag, coffee, leftover food (the spoiled one is okay), seasonings, even tablets or medicine. They will make your plants grow more leaves and flowers. I haven't tried it myself but several other friends agree to that.

Hope it can be useful for you!

Now this story of mine has no gardening in it but it's domestic enough and I hope the men in the story will do it soon. :)

Jesse Gray can’t get more unlucky. His roommate left him and he gets kicked out when he can’t afford the rent. Next, the owner of the fast food joint where he works part-time suddenly tells him he no longer works there. Jesse still has a job as a PA on a movie set but the pay will never be enough to afford even the cheapest room in Hollywood. There’s only one place left to stay the night -- in the park.

Trey Miller is the star on a TV series where Jesse works. They bump into each other one night while leaving the set, and Trey thinks Jesse is much too good-looking to only be a PA. When he learns of Jesse’s financial condition, he offers a place to stay at his house. Having no other options, Jesse reluctantly accepts the offer, but what’s the catch?

  3. When I am "gardening" I like to run my fingernails over a bar of soap so I will not get dirt under them.

  5. Jumping off the cliff can be terrifying, but the rush and the beutiful view from the bottom of the spring as you rise to the surface is worth it. It sounds to me like you need to follow the dream. I waited until I retired, but time moves fast. Do it if you can. Best of luck!!!
