It’s been a good week. A really good week.
Lot’s has happened. Lots of conversations, learning, laughing and random get-togethers.
So hello. I’m “back”.
So, I’ll just jump in.
First off-thanks for all your concern for my dad. He is doing great and his incisions seem to be healing perfectly. He is eating great, relaxing and getting more sleep (which was my biggest concern). He visits the doctor on the 23rd to have the staples removed and I will keep you updated on his appointment.
Lately, I have realized just how quickly Miss K is growing up. It seems to happen in spurts and I noticed (while scrolling through my photos, tonight) that she is turning into a big girl. Such a personality.
I noticed it when we went to the park this week. We met Nicole, Zeke and Eli and Miss K played with the big kids. She held her own and enjoyed observing what they were doing and tried to imitate.
(It’s never to early to be globally conscience, right?):
I’m planting an vegetable garden this weekend. I have a 4 by 8 foot space (approx.) and I’m debating on what to put in it. I bought seeds for peppers, mint, tomatoes, pumpkins, squash and lettuce. I think I’ll plant two of these and see how the space works out. My friend April gave me a tour of her herb garden this weekend (and then we concluded the evening with tea, truffles and conversation, obviously) and I learned alot. I have my compost bin on order from the city, which I’m thrilled about–I toss so many food scraps and grass/plant clippings, that can now be made into soil! WOOT!
I made some fun creations of the eatable kind, this week.
I marinated some olives, made some blueberry jam (which I am currently eating from a spoon with peanut butter) and coordinated a spanish-themed tapa’s dinner for my fabulous cousin Janelle and her boyfriend, Brad. I will take pictures of this-YUM!
This week was a “fort-making” week. Did you make forts when you were young? Mine were very hodge-podge, but Miss K loved it.
Molly, did not.
