How does your garden grow? It’s doing pretty darn well! My tomato plants are full of tomatoes, mostly still green but I do have a red one! The green peppers have flowered and are starting to grow little tiny peppers, the onions seem to be doing well, the cucumber is totally a lost cause and the mystery plants are flowering. We think they might be squash.
Lots and lots of cleaning needs to be done today. Besides the usual Thursday cleaning (the fridge, the litter…), I’ve been cleaning Lauryn’s closet. Every where we go, someone is giving her something and it ends up just going in her closet. I’ve been sorting through the clothes that don’t fit her any more and organizing everything. I’ve already vacuumed today because shedding dog + crawling baby = hairy baby and I can’t let that happen! The laundry is actually caught up for once so I don’t need to worry about that but once the fridge gets cleaned out there will be plenty of dishes. Gotta love Thursdays!
I have been loving these last few weekends! This one was perfect! Spending so much time with Lloyd and Lauryn has been great! It had been so long since we had a weekend to ourselves and I hope we get more of them! When we lived in Grand Rapids we had tons of time to ourselves and we loved it. When we moved here we hardly got any time because he was working so late and would come home, eat and go to bed. Weekends were spent working on the other house but now that that’s all taken care of we can just enjoy each others company.
I made homemade pizza tonight. It turned out great. I getting pretty good with the crust. I even threw it in the air a few times
The garden is looking pretty good. Lloyd weeded it the other night and I went out and saw that I have six tomatoes on one plant, a few more starting on the other one, the green peppers are starting to bud, the onions seem to be doing just fine and even the mystery plants are taking off. We think they might be squash.
We might be getting new doors put in tomorrow. That will be so nice. The doors we have now look so old and dated. We’re getting ones with windows that go all the way down, which Cloz’r will love so she can watch the neighborhood like she used to at the old house.
Well, I’m off to go eat some of that yummy golden delicious apple bundt cake and to watch a movie with Lloyd. Good night all!
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!
