Easy Summer 2019

So we decided this year to make the summer easy and laid back. Basically the plan is that there is no plan. We have cut almost all activities out and are just playing and laying low. Leighton still has his gymnastics because he is on the team, and Coppelia has speech therapy and she and…

Early Summer Blooms

So no new secrete here, I love flowers. And now that it finally stopped snowing, some of my flowers are starting to bloom. I have a number of Iris that have opened over the past week as well as my peony. They all just make the world a little brighter.

Putting The Hiking Back Into HikingMommy…

I love to hike. I always have. Sometimes the opportunity to actually go hiking isn’t as available as I would like. Even if I only live a short drive from the mountains. However I’m working at putting the hiking back in my life. Being a mom of little ones I’m realizing my hiking 10-12 miles…

Paxton’s 1st Birthday Package

As I packed up this package I was really hoping that this would be the only birthday that we have to miss and be ½ a world apart. Praying that next year his little feet are running through the hallways and he’s spilling cake crumbs all over the floor. Since it is a birthday package…

Garden 2016

So this is only a few weeks late because life just happens like that sometimes and phone calls come and paperwork happens and things just get crazy. All that said, we did put our garden in a few weeks ago. And I’ll confess now…I did not start a single plant from seed indoors. I always…

Gardening 101 Week 22

My husband murdered my zucchini plant. Actually my zucchini plants. He said he was tired of picking a gazillion zucchini a day and shredding them and freezing them in our freezer and our freezer was overflowing with shredded zucchini. He said we have enough zucchini to last the next Great Depression. I tried to remind…

Gardening 101 Week 19

How is everyone doing? We had a mix of really rainy weather and even cool weather that quickly changed into 90+ degree weather. My flowers are going nuts and enjoying the weather. My tomatoes are struggling just a bit. They are putting on fruit and the main stalk seems to look fine, but their leaves…

Gardening 101 Week 13

Don’t worry, you did not miss Week 12. There was no Week 12. I was out of town and despite the best laid plans writing a blog post didn’t happen. Which brings us to Week 13. How is everyone doing? How are your gardens doing? We are in full swing for summer now, warm days,…
