We have spring break this week, so I figured we finish all the “work” so we can “play” all week. 🙂
On Saturday, I spent all day cleaning stuff inside the house…as in laundry, Swiffering, vacuuming, cleaning mirrors and windows, scrubbing the sinks, etc. Norm gave the lawn a much needed mow. Melody picked weeds. Emily? I’m not sure what she was doing. I think she was probably crafting or making sure to move our to-do Post-its to the completed side once we were done. :p
And since spring is indeed here, it was time to take a trip Evergreen Nursery.
None of us have a green thumb, so some plants don’t make it, but tomatoes have never failed us. 🙂
Even if you aren’t picking any plants up from the nursery, it is a fun place to visit. I think they have workshops from time to time. I think maybe we need to attend some of those workshops. :p
Taking a break?
Taking another break? :p
To be continued… come back to see what other plants the girls chose to plant in our garden this year. 🙂
Are you growing anything in your garden? What will you be growing?
*How Does Our Garden Grow
I figure we should post about our garden before harvest time. We already picked some tomatoes!
Below are photos captioned and typed my Melody! 🙂
There were so many flowers.
Me and my flower
Us and Emily’s flower
What a wonderful place
What a big cart we have!
Flowers all around me. There is a ton of flowers.
My sister is looking for the perfect flower.
Isn’t that a wonderful flower?
Note from Melody’s mom: Some of the flowers pictures are what we have growing in our yard, along with artichoke plant and tomato plants (One tomato plant was given to us by a lovely church friend who can grow anything!! She is also in an upcoming Dahlia show if anyone is interested. I can give you info.) We also have/had a chayote squash plant, but perhaps a neighborhood critter got to it. 😦 We’re still working on getting our green thumbs.
Anyone have any tips on turning our brown thumbs green? Please don’t say Miracle Gro. :p Have you taken a trip to the nursery? If so, what did you get there?
On Saturday, we had friends from church over. They have 2 little girls. One is a little older than Melody. They had so much fun. We did make-your-own quesadillas with our quesadilla maker, and Melody seemed to really enjoy it. We made wraps with the rest of the tortilla, and let’s just say that we’ve found a new favorite food for our little girl. I think we might be able to stick anything in there and she’ll eat it…but she’s not really picky about her food anyhow (thank goodness!)
I had my appointment on Monday. It went well. My doctor got me out of jury duty. hehe Norm may need to go in next Wednesday. Oh, we also celebrated the 1st anniversary of being homeowners!! On Tuesday, we celebrated my birthday early with Vietnamese food at Le Soleil and a free scoop of ice cream at Baskin Robbins. A big CONGRATULATIONS to our friends Dawn and Brandon on the birth of their 2nd baby. Tyler is a big brother to Baby Katherine (Katie)!!! Now we’re just waiting for the other Tyler to be a big brother…any day now. It was an exceptionally sunny day out on Wednesday, so we went to the park after storytime, and Melody did not want to leave. She actually enjoyed doing laps (like her Uncle Bakkie) around the play area and watching the kids, but did play on the structure for awhile. Yesterday, we visited with my mom for our birthday. Yes, we have the same birthday. Week 12 of 52
Thanks to all the Company Girls who have been praying for us. Norm has a first round interview this upcoming Monday for the position that he had the phone interview for last Friday. We’re signed up for the Sibling Celebration and the tour at the hospital. Less than 70 days left now…just counting down. Melody is doing a lot better with her anxiety.
We added a few photos to Week 11 of 52. There was a break from the rain, and it has been rather nice out lately. My dad came over last week to help us start our vegetable garden. Hopefully, we’ll have a plentiful harvest this year, but not so much of the tomatoes because I lost count after 200+.
