Well, guess it has been a while since you heard from me. Things are going well in life –no MAJOR complaints… Oh, I am sure I could think of something if I really wanted to spend my energy doing that, but I know there are better things to focus my energy towards.
TGIF – I don’t say this often… but today IS a TGIF kind of day! The weather has been less than stellar (IMHO) for the past few weeks. I am not a plant or grass or something that loves getting rained on… but, the past two days have been pretty decent (sunny and dry) so I have been in the garden trying to get a little caught up on this season’s planting. I am pleased to say that I am indeed making progress! I love that J is getting old enough to really make a difference when helping pull weeds and preparing the soil. I also love that he is WILLING and EAGER to help… it makes it more fun!
I am laughing to myself as I write this because the last thing I blogged about was getting Mel Bartholomew’s book on Square Foot Gardening back in June of last year! It was exciting to get the book and I think I read it in one evening (maybe two), then I went back and really studied the sections I wanted to KNOW more about. I even shared the book with co-workers and family. It made so much sense to me! The book still sits by my bedside and I continue to look at it from time to time. Somehow I never ended up writing on my blog again after I got that book.... until now!
Summer arrived in full-force shortly after the book arrived. My mom came to visit, then the Aussie side of my husband’s family came to Minnesota for a visit, after that we had school shopping and harvesting the garden veggies… And before I knew it – summer was over and the fall/winter were upon us. Now it is spring again and the blogging urge has re-sprung – LOL!
