Wow, we had quite a busy weekend-
We had Dave over for dinner, which was really fun! He’s such a great ‘Uncle’ with Maddie- she cuddled right up to him with only a slightly skeptical expression!
Between hosting guests/parade o’ visitors/traveling, we’ve not had much time to hang out and get our list of ‘house to dos’ done! So, this weekend we cleaned the house and donated an entire car full of stuff to the charity thrift shop in our town, weeded and started mulching all of our garden beds, got the veggies and herbs planted and Brian built me a great planter for the deck (he’ll take credit for putting it together, but the idea and construction instruction credit go to Lance!).
My plan was to take a series of photos and describe how to do it. Then Maddie starting screaming, Brian had to run to Lowes (again) and I starting drinking white wine. Here’s the series of pictures that I got:
I’m so calling that one ‘best butt on the blog’
I have basil (sweet, purple and spicy globe), rosemary, spinach and just a few beets seeds planted in there. I’m trying a new seed variety- Hybrid Corn, designed for planters, that you can see along the edge of the garden below. I also planted lots of habaneros- my hot sauce was a hit last year, so I’m going to try again this year! I’ll let you know how it goes!
And with that, I’m off to grab another cup of coffee and see how much of my breakfast I can scarf down before Maddie realizes I’m eating and starts screaming!
Check back on Wednesday for my post on Newborn Must Haves! I’m just putting the finishing touches on it!
And, because my posts aren’t complete without a cute picture of Maddie…
