This weekend has felt pretty busy. My mom, my brother, Kathye, Debbie and Lloyd’s parents have all been here. We started tilling up the yard to put in our garden. I know most people put it in earlier but I’ve never gardened before and I wanted to wait until Lloyd had the time to help me and show me how to do it. I used the tiller for the first time and didn’t mind it at all but as soon as I was done my left hand started swelling up so much I had to take my rings off! Either I was bitten or stung by something, although I can’t see any marks, or I become allergic to manual labor We’re planting a couple of tomato plants, a couple of cucumber plants, a green pepper, onions and some marigolds. We were told the marigolds would keep the bunnies away. Tonight I’m grilling some Italian marinated chicken breasts and we’re having linguine oil and garlic with it. Should be yummy! Lauryn is starting on sweet potatoes tonight. She’ll be happy with her mama! She ate peas all last week, so this will be a nice change for her!
Happy 30th Birthday to my dear friend, Terry!
