Friday chill

We have the music cranked (Classic Rewind-70s and 80s rock, perfect for today) and I'm cleaning and puttering, and Lila is playing "Africa". It's a nice day. And Justin gets home tomorrow.....finally! Yay!

P.S. The band-aid on her head is just for show. She loves putting band-aids there. Weirdo. ;)

Can seedlings feel smug?

Because I think these guys are feeling pretty warm and cozy and smug right about now. Poor little outside plants, thinking the snow season was over!

Lila and I have been planting seeds and buy herbs and generally just loving getting ready to garden. We have dill, basil (growing in the egg carton), wheatgrass (that she planted at preschool,) and lettuce (in the yogurt cups). We'll be getting to tomatoes soon!

April Snow Showers Bring May Flowers

We've had an extremely snowy April this year, which makes me very happy, since I love LOVE snow. Especially since I hardly have to go out in it if I don't want to (amazing what a difference that makes, right?). The past 2 days have dumped over a foot of snow around us, and Lila took advantage of the weather by building loads of snowballs (mostly thrown at me) and a snow fort.

I'm so grateful we got some much needed moisture before late Spring and Summer hit; here's to a beautiful green Spring!
