i've decided that this whole stay-at-home-mom thing isn't bad at all. i basically get to do what i want all. day. long. well, except for when that baby of mine demands my attention.
like when she had a roaring fever for the past week. those pesky teeth are troublesome for her. nonetheless, she was a trooper. three times a week (more or less) we make the journey down to the garden. auntie mitsie meets us half way on the walk (again, more or less) so we all get a lovely stroll in.
we decided to branch out and try growing some new things; brussel sprouts, artichoke, carrots, beets, and along with a new strain of weed i've never seen before. i have this thing about my veggies.
see, i love them.
i've been eying this poster for some time. i realized yesterday that is was needed.
not only will it look fantastic on my wall, i will now be able to tell you exactly which type of avocado i will be using. such a wall of wisdom in my home. i'm pretty excited.
the garden is doing fairly well, the weeds are kept somewhat at bay. i enjoy walking barefoot and feeling the dirt between my toes and slaying the weeds with my fingers. i also really like the fact that i can tan while weeding. (there's always been this competition between the family to see who is the tannest. auntie mitsie usually wins) the kona has a spot that she's tied to and she just sits and tries not to die in the heat. oh, and like i said, it's not always a pretty job.
