Our weekend

We were very busy this weekend starting with putting up our new pool so the pregnant lady (as dh calls me) can be cool in the summer.

We had fun running around the yard. Brownie was very happy to stretch her legs as usual.

I also surveyed the gardens and trained the peas a little bit since the thunderstorms we had flattened them.

And finally we took a nap 🙂



It has been a while since I have visited this space. I have been very busy preparing for baby! We are due early September and it is very exciting to say the least.

We are busy getting the nursery going and collecting baby things. I am busy making bibs and burp cloths on my sewing machine. I am quite proud of myself. I am able to make a pretty good-looking bib for a beginner.  Hopefully I will have a picture of them soon.

The garden is growing and my peas look healthy. I am looking forward to getting my other seedlings in on Monday which is the official start of growing season for all plants. Even if the weather is warm I never put tender plants in before Memorial Day because we could have a frost at any point before then.

I hope to have more time to write here and put down my thoughts about life, gardening and baby but for now I have to get ready for work and a fun evening with family!


A long time.

It has been quite a while since I have written. I have been extremely busy between work, gardening, sewing and helping DH with a new business venture. There is a lot I want to talk about but I am not ready to discuss it yet.  I have accomplished 2 sewing projects and I am getting much better. Hopefully I can show them to you soon.

The garden is already starting with peas, blueberry bushes, lettuce and other greens so I am happy about that. I think we have finally turned a corner in the weather department it has been rainy but the temps are above freezing at night and days are at least in the 50s. I know we could still have a frost so I am waiting to put out any other plants. I do have a lot of seedlings ready to go and I am so happy that our growlight system worked inside!

I am busy getting the house in order and hanging tons of laundry which always makes me feel good.  DH is busy working and now working a second job on the weekends which is exciting  but tiring.

Today I am going to do more laundry, maybe sew a bit and this afternoon I am going to the library’s annual book sale. Today is the $2 bag sale! My sister and brother in law are coming on their way home from my parents so I will have some buddies to shop with!

The tv fast is not going great but I am still getting things done while I watch so I won’t beat myself up about it.
