Wednesday, May 9


The question is:

"Am I depriving my children from the school they love and other activities because I am a stay at home and therefore we have no money?"

Monday, May 7


Found mites on the tomato plants, and on the pumpkin plants!  AAAARG!  The leaves have little white spots on them and some are drying out and dying.  (leaves not plants)

Found THIS  to kill them.  So I have just trimmed all lower leaves and chopped them up, ready to spray everything tomorrow.  I really hope it works, have had very good luck with these plants so far so we would be very disappointed to loose them to minuscule invaders!

Boys and I had a great day today!  I woke up at 6:30am, before the alarm. (I know, crazy eh?)  Had nice coffee/e-mail check by myself.  Then boys got up.

The boys strung beads on pipe cleaners for almost an hour while I knitted (yay!)  Then we made pizza dough cookie, very yummy, the recipe is HERE.

Off to playgroup we went.  Met up with Heather and her crew.  Went to the park after then back to our house for Popsicles.  Lindsay walked by so she stopped in with her crew too!  Lots of kids in our yard, it felt like a park :)

Then Cy requested a movie and both boys lounged  on the couch and watch Bambi, they were worn out, Mama also watched quite a bunch too.  I really like that movie, so mellow and so many lessons too.
I finished the laundry finally.  Not a stitch of dirty clothes in the house other then what the boys and Q took off before bed.  Hopefully I will be able to stay on top of it.

The boys and I headed outside for another hr of play and garden before a dinner of hot dogs and butternut squash soup.  Then Q came home and bed for the boys.  They both complained before bed but 5 min later ..... silence :) two happy sleepy boys

Garden Days

We spent another whole day in the garden.  The other day... Friday we spent 5 hrs in the garden.  The boys just ate pb sand for dinner because we were outside until 7:30 pm playing and gardening!

I LOVE summer!  Even though we had snow Friday morning, I drove to work in slushy snow :0

Unfortunately lately I have been too busy with the boys to get any pictures of the boys.... tomorrow for sure.  I have finally emptied all the pics from our camera so I can use it again.

Here are some pics of the garden and Roxy's sweater I made her last year... I just found it.

Went for Tea at Kim and Devon's new house yesterday.  It's very beautiful and so much room!  The boys ran circle around the kitchen, but the only person worn out when we left was Kim I think. HEE hee

 Strawberry patch "before" check back for my "after" later this week

 Baby corn! All of our corn has come up this year :)

Old pic from cy July 6, 2009- times have changed

 Fairy house that Q put next to raspberries

Not sure which boys hand this is....

Roxy's sweater

My Snack Jack pumpkin...all our old ones went rotten so we replanted them :)

Strawberry flowers, already!

Tomatoes and pumpkins getting some fresh air, they will be planted next week with our lettuce, carrots, radish, beets, zucchini, beans, and peas.... I think that's everything.

Yarn Along

Hooking up to the Yarn Along over at Small Things Blog.

I am working on a sweater for me!  Beautiful tan and green pullover one with a huge neck, I love working with the wool.  This is the pattern in Ravelry.

Reading The Virgin Cure, well finished it this morning so I can start the third Hunger Games book.

 I am still fighting the cold from HE double hockey sticks (as my dad says).  As it sit here I have a tissue shoved up my nose, so attractive I know, but at least no boogies drip down my face.  It's been 3 weeks tomorrow and I am not sure I can take any more.  Even the DayQuil stand no chance against it!
