Ahhh Summer

Well at least the unofficial start to summer is knocking right? But not today because it's chilly today, but it's supposed to warm up nicely over the next few days. 

Where have I been? I've been here, as usual, busy doing ten things at once. It took me 6 days - spread over two weeks - to finish getting my garden ready for planting. I did the math and hauled over 13,000 lbs of dirt - by myself!! Unfortunately some of my plants that I was growing inside died shortly after planting, but I did some replanting and things should be coming along nicely. My strawberries are flowering like crazy so I'm hoping for nice strawberry crop.

Work has been busy as well. I'm learning how to manage my personal time and work time nicely. When I schedule my hours I'm not guaranteed work, but I usually know when to expect it and can fit it into my schedule well. 

I have rock to clear out our back patio door because next week we're going to get our deck put in!!! I'm so excited to have a deck. We hired a guy we've known for a while to build us our deck and on Tuesday he's going to get the posts set up. 

Ella's almost done with school. I can't believe the year is almost over. She only has a week and a half left. 

So see - there really hasn't been much going on over here. 

Here are a couple pictures of the kids coloring in the kitchen.

Here's a picture of my legs after I broke out in hives after finishing up on an antibiotic. Never thought at my age I'd be allergic to anything (anything new that is). I was kind of sad that after having gone as long as I have not allergic to anything that now I am. The hives were insane - they were everywhere! It took about five days for them to go away. Thankfully they really didn't itch, just looked fabulous! (It's kind of hard to see in the picture unless you click on it for the bigger version).

Have a great weekend!!


Crazy Busy

I've been so busy over the past couple weeks! Last week I was working a ton and this week when it wasn't raining I was in the garden getting it all ready for my plantings. I have about a third of it done and my raspberries and strawberries are back in it. I also added two new blueberry bushes for fun! :)

I don't have a lot of time right now to update (I just got another work project in), so I'm going to just leave up a video of Romeo playing with his tennis ball on the stairs.
