National Leon Day marks June 25th as six months away from Christmas day. Leon is Noel spelled backward and is a day some crafters begin planning their homemade gifts and decorations. It can also be a day for those who miss the winter holidays to have a mini winter celebration in June.
HOW TO OBSERVE: Crafters, get your hot glue guns ready! Start planning your ugly sweaters now to beat the crowds! Use #NationalLeonDay to share on social media.
At first I did not want to watch this movie on cable TV. It seemed like just another version of the same old plot. Man abducts a woman, puts her in a cage; but she escapes at the end. Lynette wanted to watch it so I agreed. At worst I'd fall asleep.
Without spoiling the plot all I can say is that this movie is different. It's definitely worth a look.
"This haunting, psychological horror follows Seth, a lonely man working in an animal shelter. His monotonous routine is broken one day when he bumps into Holly, a girl from school who he soon becomes obsessed with. However, when she rejects his advances, Seth's obsession reaches a terrifying new level, with Holly hiding secrets of her own." (Rotten Tomatoes)
This is a thin "oriental" version of an eggplant that should produce a sweet crop (if one plant can be considered a crop).
Cucumber, Tomato, Eggplant, Basil
Basil and two Cucumber Plants
The cucumber plants came with roots entwined. If I pull them apart both roots will tear away leaving two plants with no roots. I'm supposed to cut away the weaker plant as they grow. Which one? Maybe I can keep both.
The tomato plant is a bit floppy because I planted a large part of the stem horizontally as recommended and Lynette said it will be in shock for a while until it gets used to its new home. I hope so.
I checked on the tomato plant a few hours later and it's starting to straighten out. I'll take a photo in a day or so to let you know how it's doing. :)
