Sounds like a broken record doesn't it? :) I like a slow simple life, but it feels like it has been anything but that lately. Things are moving along at warp speed and I am ready to slow things down. I am sure that we all have moments in our lives that seem a little more hectic then other. Anyway, this is some of the things that have been happening around my place.
Megan covering up the green bean seeds. She was a big help in the garden.
There are carrots, tomatoes, green beans, broccoli, cucumbers and zucchini planted in the main garden.
My girl has a summer birthday and during the last two weeks of school you can pick a day to celebrate with your classmates. On Friday I sent in cookies and goodie bags.
The goodie bags included a mini watering can, sand rake and a water ball. A cute tag was attached and now it is time to patiently wait for the school year to wrap up.
Chuck used scrap fencing to make some cute planters for the boys I watch. Painting with a 19 month old and an almost 3 year old at the same time was interesting. Certainly a learning experience. I told Chuck it looked like a paint explosion in the kitchen. Once the explosion was over I used a dry brush to blend all of the paint blobs together. I then let the boys decorate the front with a paint marker.
I loved they way they looked after the boys used the marker. I hope mom liked them too.
I have been working on the never ending task of weed pulling. Then the fun part of planting and getting to look a pretty spot.
The early spring has done wonders in the garden. The clematis is full of blooms, blossoms and is pure joy to look at.
Of course in all the happenings there was a Mother's Day. I was treated to breakfast out before heading to the grocery on Saturday. Sunday morning brought cards and a new pair of earrings. Chuck told me that Megan took money out of her piggy bank to buy them. That makes them even more special!
I made an angel food cake and fruit truffle to take to my parents Sunday evening.
The boys grilled out and I spent a pleasant evening sitting on porch swing. Surrounded by the ones I love makes for a great day! Hope you all have a great week.
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
