Hello, Blogworld! Caitlin is back!
The good news is that:
a) I am going to survive
b) I am getting back to most of my daily activities
c) I don’t have to eat nearly as often, since I have an all-you-can-eat phlegm buffet at my immediate disposal!
Did you have a good weekend?
Our family was productive, productive, productive.
Spring fever hit hard over here, and we spent most of the weekend outside planting things.
For example, a new tree in our yard; an Autumn Blaze Maple :
We ran into some sprinkler pipes, an electrical line, and a wooden object that looked suspiciously like a coffin. (Later we discovered that it was just a mysterious chunk of wood.)
Also, Joseph was a big helper.
Well, a CUTE helper, anyway!
I got my garden planted!!!
Now, I am sure that I put the lettuce too close together, or I shouldn’t have planted everything at once or what have you; but that’s how you learn, right?
I did leave some room on the right hand side to plant a second crop of whatever grows well.
And, in case you are wondering, YES I am terrified that everything I just planted will die and that all of our money and work will have been wasted.
AND, I don’t actually believe that the seeds I planted will grow.
Seriously, who plants a teensy tiny seed and grows carrots?
Not me, as we will surely find out.
Oh well, at least the “Garden Death Tally” will keep things interesting around here!
Hope that you all had a great weekend!
