My sister had me take this quiz as soon as I walked through the door. I am a DEP (Dandelion, Echinacea, Peppermint) – tough, protective, and unflappable. I think that’s pretty spot on. My sister is a CDS (Chamomile, Dandelion, Slippery Elm) – easy-going, tough, talkative. If you know my sister, this is definitely true and she wouldn’t be my sister if she wasn’t the first two.

That was an unexpected trip home. My dad decided to take vacation before my sister started the next term and emailed me a bus ticket home. Like I was going to say no. So I spent a lot of time at the nursery with dad, attempting to stalk my sister on her dates (successful three out of five tries), and trying to ignore the occasional tingling in my legs fixing up the garden. My step-mom is pretty handy with herbs, but not the flowers my dad tends to bring home. Of course, I made flower crowns for my sister and her friends for some group date thing. (This was one of the ones in which I wasn’t successful.)

I also taught Sanada’s sister-in-law how to make a few vegetarian meals if only because it’s amusing to hear his brother whine about not getting enough meat in his diet. Sasuke and I fed the koi. It’s amazing how easily he does what you tell him when you threaten to tell on him to his mom if he acts up. Poked at the garden while Sanada’s grandfather played shogi. Neither him nor his opponent seemed particularly bothered when I had the wisteria bloom a bit more. Sanada’s mom was thrilled though. Apparently, it wasn’t blooming as well this year for some reason. All good now though.

Dad's been busy lately, so I haven't gotten anything new lately, which is both annoying and helpful. Annoying in that I want to try different things; helpful in that I can train with the stuff he's already sent. For example, I've managed to make the thorny vines actually release their thorns. I haven't tried this in training or combat, so I don't know how fast they go. Maybe it depends on my mental state when I decide to release them.

Six weeks. Spring and summer have gone by way too fast for my liking.

I'm considering making a quick trip home after Obon. Maybe a long weekend or something when my dad is more available. As much as I love the nursery, it's not as much fun if he's not there helping too. Though, I suppose I could just crash my sister's dates and make sure the plants at Sanada's house haven't been destroyed by Sasuke the Tornado.

I'm bored. Someone entertain me before I try to turn camp into a tall grass maze filled with traps.

Niou and I are making a surprise visit home for our sibling's junior high graduation. Lucky them that they actually got to attend their graduation instead of being at camp. I can't wait to see them though, I haven't since I went home in September. Skype just doesn't make up for it. Plus, dad said we could go to the nursery. They've got a small shipment of chocolate cosmos bulbs on the way and are pretty sure they'll arrive while I'm there. I've been wanting one so long. Best belated birthday present ever.

Sanada, Mizuki-kun, Shiraishi-kun, Fuji-kun... can I count on you all to watch over my plants while I'm away? I have the watering cycle written up and I've spent the last few weeks reorganizing my plants so it'll be easier to make sure none of them get under or over watered. I set the lights on a timer for the ones that need the sun but can't yet be put outside. If there's anything I can pick up for you while I'm in the Yokohama area, just let me know.

The worst part about winter is the lack of naturally-blossoming flowers. I've taken it upon myself to change that. At least here at camp. I asked my dad for some suggestions and he sent a few bulbs of three different flowers that he thought would work well in the soil here with a little help from yours truly.

Flowers )

Right now, I've only planted them around my cabin, but if anyone wants some, let me know and I'll put some around yours or give you a bouquet.

There are only a few redheads at camp, so I feel safe in calling out the two that completely trampled my patch of begonias. Tooyama-kun, Kamio-kun, hide you are very lucky that they aren't dead. Though, it is bothersome how quick you are to killing living things, Kamio-kun. I think a lesson in simple common sense is appropriate for you both. Come by my cabin later today.

In non-plant-stomping related news, the zucchini and squash have ripened and I dropped off a huge basket of them at the Demeter cabin and another at the mess hall. I figure more pumpkin isn't necessary now that the quest is over. That said, I have quite a few that would be perfect for carving. If you want one, just come over and pick one out.



Sanada, Renji what are you two going as for Halloween?

kaminokusaki: (displeased)
Most of my visit home has revolved around tending to the garden, volunteering at the nursery with my dad, and helping my sister with her schoolwork. We did go to Tokyo the day after I got home. I'm going to have to borrow one of my dad's suitcases to bring it all back. Now is one of those times when I wish I was a wizard instead of a demigod. I'd be able to make the load lighter.

Unfortunately, my doctor's appointment has led to an extended stay while they poke and prod. Under normal circumstances, this level of paralysis wouldn't happen until the beginning of December. I wonder if Hades would accept a gift of creeping vines that my mom could then manipulate to choke him to death in his sleep. Regardless, dad has rebuffed their suggestions of surgery. Dad and I both know that it's not going to fix anything, but he's humored them long enough that I'll be released on Friday to "convalesce" (their words, not mine) until I come home next Wednesday.

I hope you've watered my plants according to their schedule, Niou. Oh, Ibu-kun, the grapevines should be ready for harvesting too if you wanted to make wine from them. Mizuki-kun's been looking over the strawberries, so you could probably make something from that too.

I've considerably calmed down now that my bathroom is in proper working order now. To a select few of you, I apologize if there were any ill-effects from my mental outburst.

It looks as though the plants are getting the proper amount of water thanks to Atobe-kun. I think your tutelage helped greatly, Fuji-kun.

That said, I've been trying to keep my hands busy since a portion of my daily gardening has been borrowed. I made flower crowns for a few of you, mainly to test the strength and longevity of the stalks as I weaved them. Sanada, Renji, I'll bring yours with me to training tomorrow and given that you two have just arrived, Shiraishi-kun and Tezuka get one too.

(ooc: strikes deleted // for the new players, yuki's mental outbursts take the form of the yips, so anyone effected will either get the full gamut - loss of hearing, touch, sight - or just a loss of one)

Oshitari-kun, I finished the sets and everything is in order for the play. Hopefully, you will be back before opening curtain on Saturday. It would be a shame, but I suppose we could always push it back another week. The rehearsals I've listened in on have been quite good. I imagine you know that already with your brigade of Aphrodite spies. Next year, we should do "Taming of the Shrew" and you should be the shrew, Oshitari-kun. It's only fitting.

All of the melons are nearing the point where they can be eaten. I admit to helping them along somewhat, but I really wanted cantaloupe the other day. There will probably be a plethora of fruit salads added to our meals for the next few weeks once they're completely ripe.

Niou, do you want to see the sketchbook from our last rendezvous? I think you'll enjoy it.

Niou has enlightened me on covering the outsides of my cabin walls with plants without damaging the infrastructure of the cabin itself. You're welcome, Ryuuzaki-sensei.



As you can see in the above picture, it requires a bit of welding. Would anyone in the Hephaestus cabin be willing to assist in the creation? I only want to do the length of one side of the cabin just to see how it goes. It needs to be able to support at least a ton, to be safe, and I'd really like a way to install a watering line on each row.

Renji, since you're wonderful at this sort of thing, I was wondering if you would help me draw up a plan. You'll help me move the heavier stuff, right Sanada? :D
kaminokusaki: (pissed off)
To the person who killed some of my newly-blossomed flowers, I am none too pleased with you right now. I will find you, practice wrapping you up in vines, and hang you upside down from the mess hall.

On a lighter note, it's spring! Most of my flowers are starting to bloom. Some a little slower than others, but that's alright. They are newer ones my dad sent me from the nursery, so I haven't quite figured out how to properly manipulate them yet.

Also, I know the ivy looks like it's fun to climb, but please refrain. They don't like it.

Where can I find a kid of Hades or Pluto that can draw up iron out of the Earth?
